The prompt, "Share what you were blogging about last year at this time...what has changed?"
Last year I was celebrating the birth of Big Sister's second daughter. She turned one yesterday and I have no idea where the time went. I can't wait to see her dive into the cake at her party this weekend!
I also had a little series called Ask the Expert. My incredibly brilliant mom, who has about eleventy billion graduate degrees in education and psychology, answered your questions. I really should do that again...
And of course there were pictures of Pie. This one in particular will be pulled out when she starts dating.
Things couldn't possibly be more different now. After the whole Topomax/going legally blind thing my blogging has dropped off tremendously. I'm trying to get back into the swing of it, but it's hard. Really hard. And in the time I was gone, I lost followers and my readership dropped dramatrically. Talk about out of sight out of mind...if you'll pardon the phrase. Hehehe...blind joke...good times.
What we thought would be a couple of weeks has now turned into nearly four months of uncertainty, pain, anger, and pretty much every other emotion you can imagine. I'm still not at the point where they can take corrective measures. I still can't drive. I still can't work full-time. I still can't read Pie a book unless the print is HUGE and the contrast between words and background is stark. I still can't believe this happened.
But all I can do is keep moving forward. Keep trying to get back into this community that I have missed. Keep trying to hold my stabby-shiv making impulses to a minimum. I think booze should help with that last bit...
