What do you mean the world doesn’t stop because mine is falling apart?

One of life’s cruelest realities is that no matter what happens, it just keeps marching on.  The sun keeps rising and setting, work still needs to be done, bills need to be paid, you still need to eat, shower, comb your hair and all that jazz even though you just want to curl up in your bed and never come out from under the covers.  I’m not sure how it happens, but if you are like me, at some point in your life, your covers became magical and able to protect you from all kinds of bad things.

Remember when I told you I can’t make this shit up? I had barely re-emerged from my cocoon and during week 3 of what will be referred to as the breakup aftermath going forward, I got sick.  It was just a cold but the cough still lingers.  And as we all know, a cold can take down most people and turn them back into toddlers without much effort.

But that’s not the most important thing that happened that week.  Steve’s mom    (who I really liked) became gravely ill and was hospitalized.    After about a week, she  peacefully passed away with all her children present.  Tomorrow I will sit with her family to say goodbye to an extremely kind, welcoming and caring woman.  She was stronger than most women can even imagine being and faced more challenges and loss in life that any one should have to bear.  My hope is that she is now at peace with her husband and daughter in heaven, keeping an eye on us and selfishly, I am imagining she will always make sure I get a good kitty when playing cribbage.

And while all this was happening, the sun kept rising and setting.  There was work to be done and I did start combing my hair again because as cruel as it feels, life  keeps going on.  As unfair as it seems that life keeps moving, I am also comforted that life keeps marching on.  Each day that passes is one more day I have had to heal.  Each day that passes is one more day closer I am to my adventure.  Each day that passes is one more day I was OK.

  9. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

  15. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I by no means
    discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient
    for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the internet will probably
    be much more helpful than ever before.

  16. Por lo general todo el mundo confunde la garantía de la tienda (que en el caso de fnac en ordenadores es de 7 días), con la del fabricante (que puede ser uno, dos, tres más). Al fin y al cabo tú recibiste un artículo, con mal servicio post-venta, pero yo pagué por adelantado dos DVDs a principio de julio y todavía estoy esperando hoy, a punto de poner el pie en octubre. Sí aceptaban enviarlo a reparar al servicio técnico del fabricante (Blusens) bajo garantía, a lo que accedí (la laternativa era quedarme para los restos con el ejemplar estropeado), aunque tras ver testimonios como los que estoy leyendo ahora me temo lo peor.
