Why I've Been Quiet

First off, I want to apologize to everyone for disappearing without notice.  It's been a very intense few weeks and I honestly became so overwhelmed that everything fell off the to-do list.

I can't go into details right now.  There are a lot of pieces in the air with three major crises happening.  Anything I post about them could end up being a problem, so I'm going to have to wait until things are more resolved before giving an update.

I don't often get this overwhelmed.  Usually, no matter how bad the crisis, I can keep a level head and keep moving.  I may feel angry, upset or frustrated but I still function.  With this set of circumstances, I couldn't do that.  It took everything I had just to get out of bed each day and do the very basic things like make sure the kids got to school.  I've had a lot of crying jags, sleepless nights and gut-wrenching stress.

I'm slowly pulling myself back together but there are a lot of unknowns right now.  And I don't deal well with long-term uncertainty.  But I need to get back to work, get back to running the family and get back to my writing career.  I'm hoping the worst is over now but I suspect there are still a few curveballs waiting to strike. 

Thanks to everyone who sent a note wanting to know if I was okay.  Your kind thoughts are appreciated and mean a lot.
