The Show Will Go On

Good evening constant reader.

Again, I find life has put me in the position of feeling as if I owe you an apology for being more
lax with The Written Universe than I'd like.

What has happened now to take more of my reading time away from me?
My 85 year old mother is losing her memory (from what has yet to be determined) and I've had to put her in an independent living situation.  In the latter part of March and into April, she stopped paying her bills and it was a miracle I discovered it when I did.  We managed to get her moved in to a very nice apartment house (all utilities paid including satellite, three meals a day, safety, security, the ability to have her cat with her) and all paid for by her monthly social security check.

The move went smoothly.  But tending to the small details in the aftermath is taking all my time and energy, not to mention the emotional drain this is taking.

I'm hopeful that in the next few weeks things will settle down and I can regain my concentration and comprehension skills.  As it stands now, I can't sit still with a book or movie for more than 20 - 30 minutes and my comprehension (as well as retention) is suffering somewhat.  It's not entirely shot, but it's not where it needs to be to review books properly.

I beg your patience and understanding.
I am working on a new entry that will most likely proceed the next review.  Not going to give it away, but I'm looking forward to writing it and posting it soon.
