There have been serveral things happening here.
My mom is still sick. She has been taking all her meds but she does not feel better.

My grandpa needs physical therapy for his legs. He will start his sessions tomorrow afternoon. They chose doing it in the afternoon so my mom will be able to take him there when she comes from work.

My mom started another project with the help of an "expert"... and it went wrong. She wanted to modify the "scary stairs" in our house... and now they are more dangerous than before. She needs to take care of that ASAP!

Then last tuesday, one of my mom's co-workers was kidnapped right in front of the plant when he was leaving to go home. There are no news of him since then. The police says that if you don't get news within the next 3 days, you can expect the worst. My mom is in fear and very sad at the same time. She was talking to him 5 minutes before the event. He told her how precious his daughter is and now, who knows if he will be able to see her again.

As you can imagine, blogging is not one of our priorities these days.

We will be taking a break.
My mom needs time to heal her body and her mind and she thinks the best way to achieve that is spending all her free time with me and my grandparents.
Better I go now because she is soaking the keyboard with her tears.

Thanks for being my friends.
I love you all and I hope to come back someday soon.

Oh my... your steps??? Now that is a REALLY hard pawject. I KNOW that she will conquer it though. Your mom is the bestest fixer upper lady in the world.
I am soooo sorry that your mom's furend was kidnapped. I know that it must be terribly scary fur your mom right now.

In the meantime... know this... WE LOVE YOU and we will MISS YOU.. Hurry Back. Blogville always makes everybuddy feel BETTER.

Topcat said...

Hi Lorenza, we're upset because your mom is so upset. She needs to go see the doctor again to make sure things have not gotten worse for her. She can't look after your grandpa if she's not well. The stairs? She'll have to do what she must in the short-term so that they are not so dangerous. The "fix" does not have to look nice, it only has to be safe. I wish you could visit with us - it's pretty safe up here and it's cooler too. Miss Sunshade lives nearby too. We will think of you often and look for you until you're back. Love Sam.

The Daily Pip said...

We love you and your family, Lorenza! Please be safe and well. I pray that the angels will watch over and take care of all of you.
