Tangled in Emotions



I never planned to stop blogging for this long.  I had an art challenge to finish, a list my daughter and I plotted  to conquer before she moved away to college.

 I became sick and two visits to my Dr's office didn't give me any answers.  I went to the ER and again-no help!  I was in pain and needed something to get rid of the fire I felt burning in my lower abdomen.    Thanks to the internet-I know, I know don't self diagnose-I found some relief, a few ways to lower the PH in my body.  I gave up coffee, I drank green swamp juice, ate differently, drank water like a camel getting ready to embark on a long journey.(and I did-two of them.) In my zombie state of mind-I started to improve.  I didn't sleep much during this ordeal.  I heard the words:  Cancer, may be related to Kidney stones, Autoimmune and go back to your PCM.                              

I am better and hopeful!!  I am going to the Dr. next week.

Hubby n' I drove our daughter to her new home-college.  When we returned my mother's sister-my favorite aunt had passed away.   Two days later we were driving to Maine. We returned on Sunday in a fog-we have been over 2500 miles since August 15th.    Last night, my daughter's boyfriend called me and had a plan in place.  He was taking our daughter on a picnic and they were climbing a mountain to see the sunset.  When they reached the summit, he was going to propose!   It was odd since my mother gave me her wedding gown.   The last time I had been home was for my cousin's wedding.  Last night,  I received the call-they are engaged!   Daughter's boyfriend told his roommate and my daughter's roommate and they set the stage for a party!  They were greeted with streamer, balloons, cookies and cheer!  Today, my daughter found out she has been accepted into an Acapella group.

What a crazy ride August has been!   I have missed all of you, missed writing and blogging!!!
I hope you are well and life is good for you~  


 WE are crossing the Belfast bridge-almost home! 

I am not home until my feet reach the end of the timeworn wharf!  Do you think I let this sign stop me?!

No way-no how!

Good to see you back, Ella! Lots of good stuff happening in your daughter's life. Hope you will feel better soon & also that you will be back in the blogosphere more often now.

Hi Ella! Congrats to your daughter. Now you have a wedding to plan. (Which means it will be beautiful.)

Keep your spirits hopeful.

Hi, Ella,


SORRY to hear you weren't well. But I am glad to hear you are better...

August has just FLOWN by. Most of us have been on blogger breaks. I know I haven't blogged much myself this month.

If you get a chance, please drop my blog. I am helping Melissa Bradley (who has cancer) put together an anthology and we are looking for inspirational/funny stories about cancer. I hope you can join in the HOP and anthology.....

What a crazy ride this summer. BUT! You finally got to stand on the dock in your heart's home and your daughter is engaged......wonderful. I love all of your photos - especially the one about letting your light shine with the magazines you are published in. Awesome........and the Maine ones, it goes without saying........you have been missed online! Feel better!
Wanda said…
Whew, it's mean quite the summer for you Ella. A double congrats to your daughter!
Yolanda Renee said…
Oh my gosh, so many of us away, and that makes me happy as I have been too! Such wonderful news mixed with illness! So glad you are beginning to feel better - make some Cinnamon tea, 2 teaspoons boiled, strained, and enjoyed. Does help, and yes, I found it online when the doc told me to take 5 Zantac's at 40 mg strength every day. Way too much! I stopped the pills and drank the tea! Ahaaa!
Good luck, and congratulations all the way around!

Ella, I'm so sorry to hear about your health problems. If you aren't feeling normal soon, go back to the doctor and insist on a more thorough look. Ask to see a specialist, etc. Life is too short to feel like poop all the time--and there's usually a reason.

Your daughter sounds like she has found a good one. Mountaintop proposal is raising the game! (Pun intended. :)
Hi Ella .. so much happening to you - I sure hope you are feeling easier right now ...

Your daughter's happiness sounds just the right anecdote .. laughter and love with them ..

With many thoughts and here's to a healthier end of September and year ahead ... Hilary
Kristin said…
How are you Ella! Wishes and love that you are okay! xoox
DEZMOND said…
hope the sickness is gone by now! So many of bloggers are battling illnesses these days... is it blogging that is making us ill? :)
Love the pears in the headbanner!

lovely post Ella
Lynette Killam said…
I do hope you're feeling considerably better now, Ella! I haven't been on line, myself, for a while. Isn't it awkward how real life gets in the way of our blogging sometimes...lol?
