A Vacation of Sorts


We are packing up the dogs and heading out for a vacation of sorts. A vacation only in that my scenery will change. I am not looking forward to 12 hours in the car with the dogs.

My brother has cancer and is not doing very well so I want to see him one more time. He was moved back in ICU this morning so I’m not sure we’ll make it in time. I hope I have the strength NOT to cry like a blubbering idiot if I do get to see him ~ I HATE that I cry so easily. I know I’m grasping at straws here but I hope it’s just one of those setbacks they warned us about. My Mom will just go to pieces so I hope that my sister and I can handle everything.

On the bright side, my DD is already up there and she finishes up her internship next week so I will get to see her ~ I have missed that kid. I’ll be driving back down here with her so we’ll have a good old gab fest.

I’ll be back posting recipes on August 21 if everything goes well. If not, I’ll get back to the blog as soon as I can. There is no internet and spotty cell phone coverage up in the boonies.

See you soon!

Happy Cooking!

  1. My very best wishes to you and your family.

    Please don’t feel bad about crying. It just shows that you have a good heart! And who wouldn’t feel like crying in such a situtation?

    My mom is always apologizing for crying, and I’m always saying “Please, Mom, I really don’t mind!”

  2. Nancy;
    My brother had cancer too but I did not have a chance to see him when it got terminal. Thinking of you and your family at this difficult time.

  3. Nancy, I’ll be thinking of you & your family during this time. (We’ll miss your daily recipes, but look forward to hearing from you when you get back !) I, too, cry at the drop of a hat, so I know what that feels like ! Stay strong, & I hope that your brother will be okay ….. at least you are all together as a family at a time like this.
    Bye for now
