18 September 2008

Three posts in two days. I'm on a roll here. It's Friday night and I'm home from work. I think I'll get into bed early with my Wired magazine. I'm at least a month behind. I'm tired, and don't want to do my usual thing which is getting glued to the couch till it's bedtime.

Today was a sad day. A favorite co-worker, whose station is right next to mine, lost her husband last night to a heart attack. They were so in love. Second marriages for both and later in life, but true soulmates. They met on a date set up by her mother, and were married within 6 months. They had 6 1/2 years of joy together. Not enough.

My face is feeling much better today. I still have some swelling and bruising that will probably get worse before it gets better. The make-up covers it pretty well. So...no pictures yet. It's interesting to look at myself. My lips seem different, as does my smile. It will probably take a few weeks to see the true effect. Thinking back, I sure was brave. Did I mention this was done at no charge? Thank you Linda!

Emily is at her school's football game against their big rivals Old Mill. Same school they played last night in field hockey. I hope we're winning. Em's dad is there, but he sits far from Em and her friends. He's a good dad.

That's it from me...just a little update. Tomorrow morning will come really quickly, then it's Borders time!

I'm sorry to hear about your coworker. That is sad.

I hope your swelling, etc. clears up soon.

Good luck to Em for a school victory.

I'm sorry to hear about your co-worker's husband. Very sad!
But I'm glad to learn that you've made the wise choice of being happy! Many don't realize that it is indeed a conscious choice. Good for you!
And good for Emily and her team!

Your poor coworker - that is terrible. Makes me want to go and kiss my hunny.

Mo told me you told her to say hello. Cheryl, a sleeping pill would make the flight seem MUCH shorter. Come on... you know you wanna come up and see us.

love -

Cheryl,
Yes, you can definitely put a link to my blog on your site. I would love for people to see and be inspired by the love that Paul and my mom had. You are right....6.5 years.....not enough.
Thank you so much for being there for my mom. I know she appreciates it more than words can say. I will see you soon.
