A long hiatus

February 20th, 2010 at 08:53 am

I've away from this site for a long time because the last year has been the worst.
Finances have taken a back seat due to life and it's unexpected, terrible happenings. I am trying to put the last year in perspective and move on and get on with day to day living.
Last year, my mom died unexpectedly. Three months later, my beautiful 3 1/2 year old grandson died in a tragic accident. Then, one of my closest friends died unexpectedly. These events kind of put things in perspective for me. Money is necessary, but it can't buy what is really important. Hug your kids, tell your family and friends you love them. You can't know what tomorrow will bring.
Moving on has been difficult, but I have a great family, good friends, and my faith to keeps me going.
I have depleted a lot of my savings in the last year, but I am now focusing on rebuilding, and want to have an emergency fund to cover at least six months of expenses within the next year.

    Oh my! ((HUGS)) I am so sorry for all of your loss.

    It seems like it's been that kind of year for a lot of people. Though losing a small child seems so uncomprehendable.

    Welcome back. Here's to things looking up a bit in your world.

    Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry for your past year. What heartache that must have been for you. Death is never easy, especially that of a child.

    It's good to see you back here, though. I've just come back myself after a long time away. Sorry there's no way to segue into this properly after talking about a bad year and deaths, but I did post that pizza dough recipe you asked for in the comment after your request.

    Thank you, Robin, for the kind words, and the recipe. I appreciate it, so much.
