Public Service Announcement

Hey all --

I want to apologize for my recent absence in updates and posting on here. Life has been, how should I put it?

Absolutely fucking nuts. And not it a good way.

I'm dealing with some drama at work. I'm a teacher and I had a parent get up in my face on Tuesday. Did not need to deal with that. In the grand scheme of things, his beef with me and with school is small potatoes compared to what my best friend is dealing with right now. (There was a clerical error and his daughter was left off a list for a field trip. He got very pissed off at me and yeah, wrote me the great American novel of ALL emails listing the inadequacies of this school, the district and me as a teacher. I. Made. A. Mistake. Sue me.)

Anyhow, my best friend, whom I've worked with for over ten years, lost her husband to his battle with Pancreatic Cancer. It's an evil disease, I tell you. He was diagnosed in late July and passed away on December 1st. He was fifty-two. Seeing my friend fight this horrific disease and lose it is absolutely heartbreaking. He lost fifty pounds, looked like a walking skeleton and was in so much pain at the end. What's even sadder is that when he died, he left his wife (my best friend) and two young children.

I'm not the most religious person, but I'm begging for prayers for my best friend, her children and her family. They need all of the strength they can get in this horrible time.

I'm hoping to getting back to updating soon. However, in light of this news, I haven't been very motivated to write since I've been broken up about my friend's husband.

Thank you for your patience and I appreciate the prayers for my friend.

Much love,
