I apologize for my long absence, but I promised myself I wouldn’t write again until I was feeling much better about my status and my life. So my husband has been gone for approximately 3 months now and I am back to cooking and cleaning regularly (a general indicator of my mental health status). I have a part time job teaching a science summer camp for children which I find to be very rewarding. I have been keeping myself busy with all manner of things and I am holding up really well. Thank you for your patience and I will be back to publishing more content soon!
