Having a bachelor night but it's not nearly as much fun as I had anticipated. My original goal was to have a nice, healthy dinner, then re-caulk the bathroom tub. Exciting, I know! Instead, I am waiting for my pizza bloat to deflate as I contemplate what I am gonna wear to yet another funeral. Mrs. CB's beloved step-dad passed away last night after a long fight with cancer. I don't feel grief as much as I feel relief that we all know he is no longer suffering. A new adventure awaits him, and Mrs. CB's family, as we all learn to live with him tucked snugly in our memories. With our beloved nephew Billy. It's been almost 2 years and I still can't think of him and not get tears. But he has Phil now. And his other grandma who passed a few weeks ago. And his young niece who passed a few months ago. Too many passings for this family. One would think it would break them, all these losses. Instead, they forge ahead, stronger each day. I am fortunate to know them. I am blessed to love them.

Hug your peeps all. Life is short.

Heya, I've been thinking about you guys the last few days. Hope you're coping with it all... I think this is just so beautifully put Cabby. It just does it, it's so right.

Give that woman of yours (and her own) a great big hug for me.
