Rough times bring slow blogging

Wait?  I have a blog? One that is supposed to be updated nearly daily?  When did that happen?  Oh yeah…back in 2003. My bad.

Right now posting will be slow.  Why?  I am glad you asked.

First, my son has had the flu.  You’ve heard of that flu that the flu shot doesn’t work on?  The one where there are no meds to make you feel better?  That’s the one.  He has that.   But, being the kind, sharing boy that he is, he shared it.  With me.  Which explains why I passed out on Monday.  I am now in the “leave me alone and let me sleep for a week or so” stage.  Posting just doesn’t seem to be a top priority.

But worst than that, my father-in-law passed away today.  My heart is broken for my husband.  You see, my mother-in-law died in early 1996.  Shortly afterwards my father-in-law remarried a horrible and unstable woman.  Things went downhill from there.  She did everything she could to separate my father-in-law from my husband and his brothers.  When i say everything, I really do mean everything.  There was no contact because of her.

I am heartbroken for everyone.

My son heard and looked at me and said, “It sucks. Now I only have one grandparent.”  That shattered me for him.

So, even though I am “supposed” to update, I hope you understand that right now, I just need to take care of my family.

Tell me something good in your life. Link me to your blog so I can read about what is happening with you.  I want to live your life for a while.

  4. Jenn, Hang in there. I’m thinking of you. For a little bright side to cheer you up a bit, PunditGirl learned to ski this weekend. I know it was only a “little” East Coast mountain, but the look of glee and empowerment on her face as she came down that beginner slope was a look I’ll remember the rest of my life. 🙂

    Hugs to everyone there.

  14. Oh…

    I don’t even know where to begin. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I know it’s no good to just say that I’m sorry, but sometimes there just aren’t any words. So here’s a *hug* and I’m just so, so deeply sorry.

  15. I only just starting reading your blog about a month ago, but my sympathies go out to you. My husband lost his father about 13 years ago so my prayers and thoughts go out to you. Take care of your family…and remember to take a little care of yourself, too, so you can be there for you family.

  16. Hugs to you. I feel lucky that when my parents divorced, they both married wonderful people. How sad that your FIL’s new wife was so difficult. Hugs to the whole family!

  17. So so sorry. Just know that “This too shall pass” My dear hubby and I had a horrible 2008, but we got through it and just knowing that there are people out there thinking of you helps a bit. Good luck and be strong.
