Emotional Whiplash

The election aside, this has been a week of emotional ups and downs.

A friend of 40 years was killed in a car crash this week.  He was an amazingly talented musician, and someone who many in my circle of friends have had in our lives since we were kids.  I am heading down to spend the weekend with a friend who took it particularly hard.

Emotional rollercoasters with two of my boys.  One selling his house and moving back up here to get out of debt.  The other struggling to find a job, and getting hired into a temp-to-hire position starting next week.

My 4-year-old grandson had oral surgery this week to correct several dental issues, and thankfully came through it like a champ.  He may not want a popsicle anytime soon… but he is doing well.

I am so ready for the weekend, and this week to be OVER.


  1. Seems like the rollercoaster is still in motion depending on who you talk to eh?

    Lots of disruption in your family too. I hope the dust settles …. in more pleasant configurations. (hug).
