Major Life Changes

Blarg. I feel like I need to make an official blog post - the rambling kind that I tend to do. There are a great many things that have been happening lately that I want to talk about them all, but first I must work out the logistics of doing this.

But, I can give some nitty gritty details, so people are aware of what's going on with me in general.

My brother in law passed away on September 27th. He left behind three very wonderful children that my husband and I are now caring for. There's been lots of change, and adjustment, for everyone. They've had to move schools, we've had to make room for them in our very tiny house. We've been having some growing pains, as my husband, the children and I all try to figure out how we fit together as a family, but so far they've been pretty minor.

Because of this, my online presence has dropped next to nothing. That doesn't mean I'm not around, and won't be around. I still check in with all the places that where I have some commitments. It just means that my check ins are more brief as I try to find a way to balance everything to meet the needs of the kids vs my online commitments. It may take a few more weeks yet, before I find that balance. Please be patient. Especially those folks on Firan who were not aware of my situation and are now reading this.

We have been surrounded by an overwhelming number of people who have offered their support and help, and for that we're both very grateful. In time, we'll likely take people up on their offers. In the meantime, we're working through the adjustments slowly and steadily, tackling one thing at a time.

And, that's the short and the sweet of it for now.

Wow...definitely a life change! Sorry to hear about your BIL. Hoping everyone weathers the change in family life. How old are the kids?

There is one boy and 2 girls. The boy is 14, and the girls are 13 and 9.

Aw, those are fun ages! it's also harder when they're older like that, because they know everything that's going on. Sending good thoughts to all of you. They're in good hands!

Maybe I should look at the comments first ;).

yeah...so double what I just said about if you need anything. I can't really speak to 14 year old boys all that much - but 13 and 9 year old girls, absolutely!

Sending supportive thoughts your way!

Ed - As I mentioned, we'll want you to GM for Cody sometime. We're still getting settled, pretty much, so I figure maybe sometime in December or the new year. Possibly sooner, depending.

*lots of hugs*

How old are the children? If there's anything I can do to help despite the distance, please let me know.

Thank you. There is one boy and 2 girls. The boy is 14, and the girls are 13 and 9.

d and d
if Eric and Cody would like to play I am running d and d this coming (14th) Saturday, it is a new game set in a world of my own. A massive dungeon crawl. Just drop a line if they want to play.

Re: d and d
Unfortunately, I only just saw this. Eric was hunting all day on Saturday anyway. Sorry! Maybe next time.
