I really have to apologize. I have been out of touch and so behind on everything. I am finally starting to get out from under it all, but still need another day or two until I can say that I am caught up.
For those of you who have been trying to reach me, I apologize that I have been unavailable. For those of you that have been waiting for things promised, I'm running to get my promises fulfilled. For those of you that think that I am a bit flaky, July has been a month when I definitely deserve the title.
Updates: My back is still a bit bad. Have to watch how I move, but I can sit up for more than an hour or so at this point and can manage the whole thing with Motrin (a lot of Motrin, but still with Motrin.) As far as our dog Megan is concerned, she passed on Saturday. She continued to have seizures, could no longer see, could no longer find her way back inside after being in the back yard, and was so anxious that she could not find rest. Our fabulous vet helped us give her rest. We gave ourselves the day on Saturday to cry. I am still tearing up as I am writing this, but I will never forget how, in the vet's office lying on the table, she looked up and licked my face as if to thank me.
Back from the kleenex run to the other room now.
Anyway, I have some help coming over today to help me get caught up on my listings. I have some one-of-a-kind books and papers that I am going to try to list. Things that I have picked up here and there that I think you will all appreciate. Vintage sewing patterns, cooking pamphlets from the 50's, children's books with fabulous illustrations, etc. etc. etc. My buddy Jake is gonna come scan for me so that I can do my listings.
