However... there's only so much wallowing a person can do, right?
To that end, let me show you a few behind the scenes moments from the past week to help clear the air:
~ my Jedi took a liking to his mop training
~ he also learned to take spectacular photos of his little buddies
~this guy used a jedi mind trick to distract me while he turned 5 months old
~ a laid back weekend with friends and gorgeous weather helped to ease the sting of recent days
~Ace relaxed by taking an easy, breezy nap in the hammock
As you can detect, life is not all that bad these days, but I still find myself bumping and jolting through the hours; not quite back to self. Thank you all for your heartfelt comments and e-mails. They perk me right up when I read them and I do plan to return to all things normal soon. In the meantime though, even if I haven't responded, even if I never do, know that your words carry much weight and I've tucked then in my shirt pocket right next to my brilliant Sterling memories and my fondness for A.
I can't leave without pointing out that somehow, through all THIS, I've acquired a new reader. That kind of decision requires a spotlight, so welcome, Tattytiara, I'm glad you're here.
May another calm weekend roll over me...
