About last week...

My husband's business partner passed away last week, heart attack. We are making adjustments.

I'm not going to skirt around the fact that I'm dealing with depression; I'm at a low right now. I haven't been reading so the reviews are slow in coming. I'm not sleeping well and I'm throwing myself into positive coping techniques - garden projects and sewing - with the hope that the sun and elbow grease will lighten the depression and help me fix my sleep schedule, which is all over the place right now.

The heavy lifting in the garden, combined with humidity, sometimes triggers my hemiplegic migraines (learn more about familial hemiplegic migraines). It's slowing me down on my projects too but that's what life is with migraines - constantly working around them. I enjoy being in the garden and I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes when a project is done so I keep at it. I work when I can.

But that's where I'm at right now. My brain just isn't working. Please bear with me.
