My little family received some awful news two weeks ago and I've been really down. Blogging hasn't been high on my list of to-dos. Moping has been #1. Crying #2. My priorities have been all askew.
All of us are hit with hard news at times. "It's not fair" moments are not unfamiliar to anyone. My family, however, seems to have more than our share of them. We've been changing life directions so often, and for so long, because of bad news that I'm downright dizzy. I'm ready for a little stability. A little bit of boring. Boring sounds nice.
Anyway, blah. I'm just feeling blah right now. Two weeks of blah. I wonder how long blah will stick around. I hope not long.
It's funny how life doesn't stop during such sad times. Even when I'd like it to for a little while. I feel like I'm treading water. I fool myself to thinking escape will make me feel better, but running away never does. Happy moments bring the fresh air in. I just have to tell myself to keep swimming. To search out those special moments and to hold them close. They are what I want to remember; not the sad. They will keep me afloat.
The only bad thing was that I had a horrible case of the stomach flu. And then I handed the flu off to my brother, the groom, who was very sick on his wedding night and over the first honeymoon days. Oh, my. I feel so guilty. I want to call him to see if he is feeling better, but I think calling on the honeymoon would only add insult to injury. Crossing my fingers that it didn't last long.
And crossing my fingers for brighter days ahead.
