Moody Monday

If you are looking for a cheery post you may want to skip this one...

Our friend Dick passed away on Saturday morning at 1:26 a.m. He was with his family in Washington at home which was a blessing. He had slipped into a coma a day or two before and never regained consciousness. Danielle is flying up there today to help make the arrangements and attend the funeral. They will bury him there next to his wife, Jennifer. There will be a memorial done here once Danielle gets back. He was a widely known man and I imagine it will be quite a gathering.

I never went to my mom's which is okay. Bob was there to be with her and I wasn't up to it anyway. I was kinda on standby waiting to see if Danielle needed anything so I hung out at home.  I ended up grubbing out of boredom and sadness. Did it help me any??? Ummm that would be a NO!

Dave is getting his staples removed from his knee surgery today at 2:30 p.m. if all goes well. His plan is to leave tomorrow and take the train to Redding to stay with an acquaintance named Jody. It is not a permanent option. His family lives here and I know he would rather stay but this is just for a few weeks or a month or so.  I already cried this morning about it. The bottom line is we are friends and I am going to miss him. Change is good and I do have some plans for my future so I need to keep focusing on that. If you think about it, I broke things off with him a year ago and we are still not separated. Sheesh.... Longest breakup ever. It goes to show you when you cohabitate it is like being married and therefore separating is like divorce. Until next time...
