Urgh, yes this week has been one of those, again. Too. Thankfully tomorrow marks the first of a new month, and the beginning of the last weekend that I’ll need to be wonky. It’s focus time, time to move ahead, away, and forward.
Without further excuses and maudlin musings, here’s the prompts for this week!
Missed all of last week, didn’t I? Again, things have been running together, and it seems like only yesterday I was prepping for Resurrection April (a WriYe challenge), and here it is rapidly approaching August.

I’ve been given a lot of cards and poetry, a lot of sympathies and hugs, a lot of nods and shared tears over the past couple of weeks. It’s been harder on other folks, I think, than myself or my family.
