Life. Sometimes it gets in the way.

Hey guys.  So, I haven’t been around all that much for a while and it has been even longer since I’ve been around on some of your blogs.  For this I am sorry.  I am not being lazy I swear (though I wish that was it) and I haven’t spoken much about why I’ve been MIA except a bit on twitter.  You see, my mom has cancer.  This is actually the second time she has had to go through this but this time is different.  She’s been in treatment and it is no longer operable.  Her only option right now is to start radiation and we are hopeful and praying that it will work.  Now with that being said she has to basically move to Houston (4 hours away) since these treatments will be everyday for over a month and her risk for complications is much larger since she has already had radiation before and where she has to get it now.  I’m not going to spill everything here. . .this is more my mom’s story than mine but just know I’m still here and I still want to be a part of this great blogger world with all of you but I probably won’t be posting very often at all since I will be spending a lot of time on the road back and forth to see her and spend time with my family.  I will be stepping back from all features I participate in for the time being but will still finish up blog tours, etc I’ve committed to since I can get that scheduled in advance.  I will definitely still be on twitter and emailing since everyone needs a distraction so I will still be around somewhere. 🙂


Thanks to everyone for the support so far and please keep my mom in your prayers.

    As always, I am here to read or sleep for you. Or, you know, make outrageous claims on Twitter to cheer you up. ❤

    She’s in my prayers, as are you, friend. If I can do anything for you (from a whole state away!), let me know. <333
