A very stressful week :(

I am so tired. We got back late last night from my mom's. You can see the old part of the city in the photo. I have been going through my emails and comments since 8:00 a.m. and I just want to say you guys are so wonderful. Thank you SO much for your heartwarming comments and personal messages. You are the best!!! Now, the hard part. Sumi is still with my mom. According to the doctor's my mom is stable, although the way they say it doesn't sound good to me. We have spoken to one of her neighbours who very kindly offered to help out with Sumi or the grocery shopping when needed, but in the long run we will have to arrange some sort of carer to come in on a daily basis. This being Germany, this will involve reams and reams of paperwork and other bureaucratic nonsense. Even if I applied straight away, nothing will happen before next year. Sumi positively went bonkers when she realized what was happening. It was heart-wrenching, not to mention my mom being so sad. We decided it was too much stress for the little one, and so after talking to the neighbour we left Sumi with my mom. Of course there will always be a place for her here should the circumstances change. Sammy is overjoyed to have us back. I'm trying to get back into my routine, which I always find difficult after I've been away, even if it's just for a week or so. I also need to see a doctor, because I have developed a weird pain that seems to travel through my body. One day it's my back, the next my legs, my arms and on it I said - weird. Something weird is also happening to my blog. Can someone tell me why all the links on my blog are underlined and a funny shade of default blue? I tried to change them in 'fonts and colours', but that didn't work. The blue remains. It's affected my tags, my blogroll, my archive - I know I had them in a mauve/pink colour before I left, to tone in with the rest of my blog. Help...anyone? Also, why is it that I sell more items when my shop is closed than when it's open?! I mean, I'm not complaining, but...??? I even got a custom order! Hmm. Weirder and weirder. I am really looking foward to this weekend, so that I can get everything organized and back into order and maybe I even get to sleep my required eight hours... I'm also looking forward to visiting all of your blogs! I have so much catching up to do! hugs ♥

  2. Glad to see you back, Duni. Sounds like your mom has a lot of love around her.

    I do hope the doctor figures out what's causing the pain. We can get used to things, but who *wants* to live with that all the time?

  3. Glad you're home safe and sound. Will continue to pray for your mom.
    I've been having alot of problems with blogger too, but not the one you state, at least for now.

    Thinking of you!

  4. I'm so glad to see you back home safely. I hope everything all right with your mom.
    Thank you for always stopping by at my site :)

  5. Saying a prayer for your mom! It's nice to see you home once again. I have missed reading your blog!

  6. Welcome back Duni! I hope everything continues to go well for your mom and Sumi. I also hope you are able to figure out what is causing your pain. Purrs to Sammy. Take care of yourself!

  7. Welcome back Duni and I'm saying a prayer for your mom :) Have a nice weekend!

    Glad to have you back! Also glad it's good news about mom for now. I'm sure Sumi is happy, and you all made a good albeit tough decision for now. Looking forward to catching up.

  9. Welcome back, Duni!

    Get to the doctor and take care of yourself!

    And congrats on the sales. That is always a nice surprise when returning home.


  10. Dearest, please get to a doctor as soon as possible and make them do blood work on you. Don't wait.


  11. Hopping in to wish you a terrific weekend. :)

  12. thnk u so much! as u can see i added your button.....errr now can u pls tell me how to put up my buttong on my profile so ppl can put it on theirs?thnx!....n hav a lovely weekend:)

  13. I'm glad you are back safely and I hope you have a chance to rest and relax a little bit!

  14. We missed you!! Glad to hear your back safely and that things seem to at least be "calm" with your Mom. I can understand little Sumi having a bit of a reaction to the idea of switching homes. But it's wonderful that you've already opened your hearts for him. Hope you're having a great weekend.

  15. I'm pleased to hear that your mom is stable. Try not to get too stressed (easier said than done, I know) and take some time out just for yourself.

    Congratulations on the sales! I often find that things like this happen when I'm not trying too hard or not trying at all (I don't know why! Very strange!)

    Have a wonderful weekend,


  16. I'm so glad you are back and able to relax after all the stress. You are a very good daughter and Sumi will be OK until it's time for her to join you. Hope you are feeling better :)

  21. Hi Duni, we are so happy that you are back... and I am happy to be back here in your blog, too.
    See you around... :)

  22. Welcome back sweetie! It's good that you left the cat with your mom. I can only imagine how lonely she might have been if the cat wasn't around. What a nice neighbor your mom has. =) Trying times like these, you will really see who actually cares. It's good to know that there's someone who will be helping your mom out for the mean time.
    And with regards to the carer or caregiver, make sure to really do a background check and get to know the person taking care of your mom.
    take care duni. mwah mwah mwah

  23. OMG!...that's so sweet of u duni!.....really! its very encouraging:)...u can definitely go ahead with that:)

  24. I am glad to hear you are back, safe and sound.. I am sorry you have been through so much stress.. I hope you get some much needed rest and take it easy.. Don't overwhelm yourself, my friend!! :)
