Checking in

I’m in Nevada this weekend. My daughter and I drove down Friday night.

Dad is on hospice care, so this might actually be the last visit with him. It’s kind of stressful, to say the least. He sleeps a lot, so there are moments to visit with my brother and mother.

Sometime during one of those quiet moments, I hacked out one more blog tour promo post. I have a few to go, and don’t know when I’ll get to write them. I swear, ‘Wreck of the Lanternfish’ will come out in 2021. Watch this space.

Tonight, my brother brought out a bottle of Colonel E. H. Taylor small batch whiskey. It really helps to digest the situation I find myself in.

My daughter got away for an hour and visited her aunt and uncle. They have a new house we’ve never seen, but I stayed here. They also have a German shorthair puppy she said is is uber-cute.

Please forgive my lack of posts. There is a lot going on in my life right now. If I had my druthers, I’d be writing, blogging, and publishing.

    Sorry to hear this. Just focus on your family – as well as whatever you need to do for yourself to help you deal with the situation – and worry about the rest later.

  17. Add me to the list of folks sending you prayers and well wishes, along with some positive energy to help you through the days ahead. I’ve been through this with both of my parents, and my younger brother, so I understand just how difficult and stressful it can be. Don’t worry about us. Just remember to take care of yourself, too, during this time. 💗

  19. I’m sorry to hear you and your family are going through this. I lost my dad two years ago. There is a feeling of peace when the loved one has passed over. Sadness, yes, but peace.
