What do you do when life & other unexpected complications happen? Stay strong, take things one step at a time and Keep Moving Forward!

I'm so sorry about the unexpected break I took these past few weeks. So many things have been happening so fast and I needed some time to mentally process and work through those changes before I was able to share them with you.

It all began when I decided it was time to sell my house. I didn't realize how much really needed to be done before it would be ready to show.

I thought for sure that I would be able to continue blogging and stay on schedule, but I got a full-price offer within the first 24 hours. Wow! My head was spinning. I had no idea where I was going to live or how I was going to be able to move everything by myself. Plus there were a few small repairs that needed to be done before the closing, which is scheduled for July.

I called my ex-husband. who was surprisingly supportive and he offered to help with the repairs and even move my things when I was ready.

So, things are moving pretty fast at this point and I started to declutter and toss out as much stuff as I could.

Then on May 26th, my Nana was in a bad car accident and everything came to a full stop. The first responders thought she might have internal bleeding and they airlifted her to the nearest trauma center which is about 45 minutes away.

The car was totaled and she suffered a broken rib, a broken sternum and A LOT of bruising. It is going to be a long healing process but thankfully she is doing good and is finally back home.

My daughter's future sister-in-law just happened to be 3 cars behind her at the time of the accident and ran right over to help. Nana remembers she was there almost immediately and that she was dressed in white like an angel. We are so thankful for her help that day!

I also want to give a HUGE shout-out to all of the first responders! We are lucky enough to know most of them and they took amazing care of Nana during a really terrible time. 

So, since I needed a place to live and Nana needed someone to help her around the house and monitor her medications, I decided the best thing would be to move in with her for the time being. 

Now that you know what I've been doing these past few weeks I hope you will forgive my absence and I want you to know that I'm getting things organized and rearranging my editorial calendar but I will be picking up right where I left off.

I hope you will continue to join me on this planning journey!

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today and for supporting the Krafty Planner!
