Do you still remember me?

I feel like I've been gone forever! I am just stopping in quickly this morning to say "hi" and let you know I'll be home on Tuesday and back to blogging, emails, and making art! Woohoo! I almost can't wait to get on that plane and I never thought I would ever ever say that!

And, I wanted to thank you for putting up with all of my personal stuff here lately and sending all the good thoughts and prayers - they are surely what has gotten me through all of this and I cannot express how much I appreciate all of your support and the support of my perfect hubby and family. It has been more difficult than I expected on this trip and round two is coming up in the next couple of months. Now that my dad is healing from the bypass, they will go back in as soon as they can to fix the aneurysm that was the original problem. So, we are not out of the woods or ready to take a big sigh of relief, but we are almost over the first hurdle. It was emotional and tense and stressful the last week and now I am just plain old homesick and itchin' to be back in my little niche of family, friends, art and routine.

I hope you all have a great weekend and I can't wait to see all that you've been up to. I will have a lot of reading and looking to do next week and I can't wait. I love you all!
