Hi everyone- I‘ve been a bit MIA for a while. Things have been a bit stressful here, capping off with a family death this last week & I‘ve felt like I‘ve been drowning a bit. I‘m hoping I‘m beginning to come up for air now.

So, tell me something that‘s going on with you: good, bad, or in between!! I‘ve missed you all!

tjwill Good to see you back on here! Sorry you‘ve been having a hard time. I‘ve been overly stressed lately too. And I‘m taking a computer science class this week, which is taking away even more of my summer, but I hope it will be helpful. 3mo

Y‘all. I‘m going home to see my family in Louisiana at the end of next week, because my mom has devolved in to giving me major guilt trips every single time that I talk to her. I let my fam know on FB last night that I‘d be coming in. My uncle posted 5-6 Trump posts in a row not long after. It reminded me what I‘m in for. I‘m the only non-Trumper. I need book ideas to take with me, as I will be doing a lot of reading & ignoring!!

Thanks for all of your sweet words, thoughts and prayers everyone! My sweet boy is back home and sleeping next to his mama.

Better that than most of the other alternatives, so I‘ll take it!

Guys, my good boy, my sweet Cletus is back at the vet. He‘s been vomiting his food again. We were thinking that he was either eating too quickly or may be having another pancreatitis flare.
