I am so, so sorry for my long absence and regret to have to inform you that it is going to extend for longer than this.
My maternal grandmother has fallen ill and can't be on her own right now. It got really bad several weeks ago, a hospital visit was involved, and so I have been staying with her since then and will continue to do so until she is better or we can convince her to move in with us. Unfortunately she does not have internet as of right now and since it was a very sudden thing I had to drop everything to go be with her and didn't get a chance to write a journal informing you all.
As of right now she is doing alright and I am as well, but it's still up in the air as to how long I will be staying with her. She is considering getting an internet package for me but has not committed to that yet, so I don't know when I will next have a chance to work on things, upload things and update you all.
This is the first chance I've had to post, having access to the internet while at home (my uncle is staying the night with her) so I thought I would let you all know what's going on.
So sorry for not posting anything or having a chance to reply to any messages or notes any of you have sent me. I will be sure to do so as soon as I can, whether I get another, longer, break at home or she gets the internet.
I haven't forgotten about you all, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience my absence might have caused you all. Please know that I wasn't ignoring any of you and that I will try to be back as soon as I can.
Hope you are all doing well otherwise!
