The Blog About Nothing 9/18 Edition

BaN-Brooklyn-292x300What up world and welcome to another edition of The Blog About Nothing. Welcome to mid-September. I’ve taken a trip out of New York City for the week, and I find myself in hot and sunny Central Florida. I’m here to visit my folks, and make sure my Mom is OK. So this isn’t a vacation, but a break from New York is always welcome.

My Mom is fighting the good fight. It’s tough to recover from a massive stroke. She’s two months into her recovery, and while she is not progressing as much as I would wish her to, she is recovering. It’s going to take awhile. I know that. It’s just hard to watch, you know? Look, it’s never easy to watch someone you love suffering. I don’t have to tell that to anyone. We all have either been there, or will be there, since such things do not escape anyone. It doesn’t.

That’s life people. It really is. Its up, its down. Its good and its bad. It would be nice not to go through the ups and downs, it would be nice to have all the good in the World, but we all go through it. My family and I are there now. It won’t last forever, and even if it does get worse, we’ll get through it. It is what it is.

I’m going to make this short, since I am really busy but I wish everyone who read this blog a good day, a good week, and I look forward to blogging again next week. Thanks for supporting 7Poundbag.

  1. EJ,

    There is nothing I (or anyone) can do to ease what you — and your mother — are going through. If it helps to know someone has shared the experience, then I am with you.

  2. Thanks Appleseed. It’s good to know I have people who have been through this experience that I can rely on for some advice or encouragement.
