Despite the snow and ice and cold crappy weather, the New Year started off pretty good for me. I figured out a bugaboo with my wip, and now I’m on track and moving forward with One Real Hero.
But the bad news demon is still plaguing our family. A cousin passed away far too young. And my dad’s oldest brother died last night. He’d contracted Alzheimer’s and has battled that for some time, but it’s still very difficult to say good-bye to a loved one.
I preferto remember him engaged in the sports he loved so much and devoted so much of his life to. He was a very good dad, a loving good husband, and a really great uncle.
It’s my hope that we don’t have any more deaths in our family for a good long time. Readers and friends, hug someone you love right now.

Memories are golden, LaDonna. Not sure I’ll make National this year. 🙁 But I’m hoping for a smaller conference or two at some point.
