I know I've been MIA from Pam's Perspective and from all of your blogs for quite awhile. It's been a combination of being super busy, feeling uninspired and (occasionally) pure laziness. But I haven't completely forgotten about blogging. I do have "guilt" about not updating and visiting. Is that crazy or what? I guess I'm at a point of reevaluation. Anyway, here's a quick update:
I read a really great book last month for the book club I run at the library. It's called The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian. It was well liked by all the club members. The story is about two octogenarians who are suffering from health issues. Ella has cancer and her husband, John, has Alzheimer's. Ella narrates the story and her voice is incredibly funny and charming. Against the advice of their children and doctors, Ella and John embark on a cross country road trip in their RV - the Leisure Seeker. Along the way they reminisce about their long marriage, past family vacations, good friends and life journey. It's a wonderful story full of laughter and love. On the surface it appears to be a light read, but it is full of deeper truths and wisdom. I loved it!
I've also been busy with the upcoming Graduation of my daughter Katie and all the end of year events that that entails. It's been a lot of fun, but exhausting. In the last week, we've attended a Chorus Banquet, an Awards Night, a special Chorus Performance (our last one), the HS Graduation of our dear friends from a nearby HS AND Katie's two-day Freshman Orientation. Phew! And this weekend is Katie's Friendship Service (whatever that is) on Saturday and Graduation on Sunday followed by a party in our backyard (now they are predicting rain. Ugh!) As I said, I've been busy!
I promise to post photos and more details after Graduation.
