It’s April 28th, 2011, and there are 5 billion things to do before No Pink Spandex Live starts. Laugh heartily if you think you’re getting sleep, and be thankful that you had time to eat a cereal bar for the day. Then it’s May 2nd, and you look back at the event and give yourself a pat on the back for everyone having a great time and just for making it through. Tuesday will be a great half-day from work. Not so.
That Tuesday, I ran out of work to rush to the hospital that’s a good hour and change away. Finally get to the emergency room, and there’s where I stayed til the night. This would happen another 3-4 times during the month of May. No, I’m not sick. If I were, at least I’d know how to handle. At least I’d have some sort of control. At least I’m young and will be able to bounce back quickly.
I have a loved one this is not well at the moment, and I don’t know when they will get better. I know they will get better eventually, but all of my spare time is currently spent on them (as it should be). Thank goodness for neighbors and church family who have helped along the way, but my loved one only has me day in and day out.
Where does this leave No Pink Spandex? For now, things are going to be slow. I always think I can get 5 billion things done at the same time, but I’ve got to be realistic. Good news it that it won’t be totally dead around here. It’s been taking me a while to get adjusted to everything, so things will pick up again soon…just slowly.
Please keep me and my loved one in your prayers. It has been one of the toughest months for us, and I pray that things do get better. The great thing about this community is that when times are tough, people have your back. To the readers/listeners/viewers out there, thanks for being awesome.
