Hello to my fans/friends, group members, or whoever you may be. I am so glad that you are reading this-- especially if you are someone who has been wondering why I haven\'t dropped by your profile lately.

I\'ve been having some challenging times with my parents. My siblings and I, who live all over the world, (okay, what that means is that one of them lives in Japan) have been working together to make sure that my parents are financially secure. They are in their mid 80\'s, and may need long term care at some point. To complicate manners, there is a family business involved. It has to be decided whether to try to keep it running or close it down.

I won\'t try to explain anymore. The complications are incredible, and would take pages to explain! I\'ll just say one thing more: I am so glad that none of you are stuck in this mess! I wouldn\'t wish this on anybody. :P

All of these goings on are leaving me a lot less time for Desktop Nexus. That is why:

Many of you haven\'t heard from me or heard back from me.

I haven\'t been able to make nearly as many wallpaper comments lately. (Sigh. I love doing that too!)

I have been getting profile comments that I haven\'t been answering like I would like too.

I used to do weekly profile greetings, but that had to go by the wayside months ago. That part happens to be your faults. :P :D :D :D So many of you have fanned me, (and of course I\'ve done some fanning myself...) that I couldn\'t get it all done every week any more. I was planning to do some Profile greetings every week, and eventually get around to everybody that way. But then the "Family Mess" got so complicated and kept me so busy that I haven\'t even managed to do that.

This is to let you know that my heart is here, and I wish that I had more time to check out how you are doing, and what you are uploading, so I can make wallpaper comments... I have to believe that eventually the Family Mess will all get sorted out, and I will have more time up here once again.

I love it up here, and I am very thankful that I have made so many wonderful friends. :D

CollieSmile/Elaine :)

PS. I\'m still hanging in there with PM\'s. If you PM me, I\'ll do my best to get back to you. If you don\'t do PM\'s, maybe you could leave me a profile comment with the words, "Please Answer" on it. I will try.

PPS. I\'ve been feeling like this a lot lately!

And here\'s another wallpaper that I can identify with... thanks to my friend RedHeadsRule/Gloria for capturing my feelings and putting them into a wallpaper! lol
