Where Have I Been?

Where have I been? Why haven't I been blogging? I'm starting to get questions about my status via e-mail and phone messages, so I'm sitting down to write briefly right now.

Something is happening to me that's imparing my mental/emotional ability to focus. I feel like I'm having an intellectual slip, but it's, according to my Therapist, more likely physical in nature and easily treatable.

I'm doing crazy things like leaving my home and driving over the hill without my purse, putting things down where they don't belong, and then not being able to find them. Losing things... a beaded purse and a beaded bracelet - both very expensive items - out of my inventory of finished product. And not just lost in my home where I'll find them. Lost in public places when I shouldn't have brought them along in the first place.

I'm unable to sustain any kind of food or exercise program, even as I know what I should be doing as I deviate.

The craziest part of all of this is that I can't seem to get off the mark with most of my projects, but when I finally do get something done, the final outcome is still up to my normal standards. Like I said, it's nuts.

My appointments with doctors over the next five days are numerous. One today. Two tomorrow. Another next Monday and yet another next Tuesday. Dr. M-, my Therapist, has agreed to take an active role as advocate during this round of appointments to be sure that they are not only taking my complaints seriously, but don't write me off as a mental case. And he's also going to ensure that they are talking to each other.

With all of this going on, something had to give, and I chose to let it be my blog. Sorry. I'll be back, and hopefully soon. And I have so much to tell you about.

1.) My new hair.
2.) My new make-up.
3.) My garden make-over (very much still in progress).

4.) My dogs - who are both still with us, thank you for caring.
5.) My diet, or lack thereof.
6.) The Slumber Party of 4 (the miniature Fab 4, so to speak) that I had at my home a couple of weeks ago.
7.) Miles's Birthday Party and Inky the Squid.

8.) Breathing Helium.
9.) Warner Center Concerts in the Park
10.)My jewelry, and whole new classes of product that I'm making.

So you see, it's not for lack of intent or subject matter. But for now, please bear with me. I'm doing the best I can, but I have to take care of myself first and foremost, and definitely before the Blog.
