Is May realy half over?

I keep meaning to blog, but it just hasn't happened! Every time I sit down to do it I just get overwhelmed and quit! The problem is so much has happened and so much is still going on I just can't find a place to begin.

I love my Job, Kevin is changing Jobs but staying with the same organization, I'm not pregnant, Mothers Day was interesting (but not horrible) and My dad is sick. I think I am going to start with my Dad and maybe go from there, but I have a feeling I will be lucky if I actually get this up tonight!

My Dad has cancer, it is stage three and has spread to his lyphnodes and kidneys. He, in my opinion, is doing amazingly well. Some days I have to ask myself if it is actually him. He started chemo last week and like everything else, so far, has taken it in stride and has not let it stop him. He did take a leave of absence from work but that is more or less due to what he dose at work and that they wanted him too.

Most nights I find him sitting on my patio just thinking and relaxing, I don't know if I have seen him this laid back in all my life, but he is and he seams happy. And he is taking it easy on Mom too...which really helps. And even on Mother's Day (when almost know one else did) my Dad leaned over and whispered to me that he was thinking about me and that he missed the girls it made me tear up.

I know that I am a Daddy's girl threw and threw and I have been terrified about what losing my Dad will do to me, but I have decided not to think about it because he is going to get threw this. I truthfully believe that prayer helps and changes things. And let me tell you Dad has an amazing support network of friends and family praying for him and I know that makes all the difference.

I told you I wouldn't get very far (I need a phone I can blog from)...that is all I have time for tonight, I promise I will do my best to get something else off of my list tomorrow. And even if I'm not commenting I am still reading, even if I am behind! But I am thinking about all of you! I promise to get back into the swing of things soon!!!

Oh honey praying for your dad. I am a daddy's girl too so I can imagine how it must feel. Welcome back! You sure were missed. Not pregnant either, so we are in the same boat :-). How's the job going btw?
