The Value of Friends

As you have probably figured out by now, I have not been very actively blogging for awhile. One thing and another. Getting ready to teach a class on Mayan Hieroglyphs at Santa Rosa Junior College this summer is one thing that is taking a lot of time.

My new blog on 2012 and reading everything I can on 2012 is taking a lot of time too.

Then I broke my right ankle and cannot walk or drive for a couple of months. I find myself tired just trying to take care of the basics. If not for my friends, I wouldn't even have any food. Someone comes over every couple of days to help me around the house and bring food.

But today, I looked at my BlogCatalog account and found that I had gotten an award from one of my friends in Turkey! That made me really feel good. Thank you Aprill!
Her blog: ShiningDay http://sunshine.blogsever.com/

I haven't yet written about my trip to Turkey in 2005, but it was wonderful. When the economy recovers (if it ever does), I want to go back. I have friends there that I can stay with - in Izmir.

So now it's my turn to pass on the award. Drum roll please.....

Thank you for another award! Wow! Ive been thinking of you as I popped in here on and off to see if you were blogging. Then I saw what happened to you. I do wish I lived closer so I could help. But I believe everything happens for a reason so in time Im sure you will know why. Things have been upside down here too and I will be online less and less. I think the end is near and soon the house will be on the market. But sadly this family stuff still lingers and is causing problems yet. I wish these people would go away and leave my family alone, sigh. They do nothing but cause more problems and stress. But I have to move on and who knows perhaps that is the reason why Im going....so they can follow and get away from this crazy state.

I do hope you heal quickly as I know how frustrated you must be feeling. Ive been down a bit too and its making me crazy. We are people who are doers! Being made to sit.......is awful. Hugs.
