OOObladi, Ooooblahdah

So in November I lost Penny, in December I had a car accident, in January I lost Penny's Grandfather (hers were the only grandparents I have had in many, many years).
He was the one person in Penny's family who was still alive who loved me for who I was.
He never recovered from the loss of Penny, and was in such poor health it just did him in.

But life goes on. The funeral was today and I went, some of my family went with me, but there is nothing like a spouse, or at least another mourner who knew the person who died.
I made it.

It was sad, I cried.

I now feel like the grim reaper is gone, he has been hovering and holding my life down since I lost my dear Penny.

I am trying to only look forward now. I can't change the past, I can only change me. And I want to live.

I want adventure and travel and all the things I never thought I would be able to do. If I can live through all the stuff I've lived through the past few months, I am Wonder Woman! And I can go on!

I love you ladies, and if you are ever in Memphis or nearby, please shoot me an email because I'll hang with you (work allowing) if you are pretty or in drab. It doesn't matter to me. Know you have a friend.

Hugs to you all!


  1. Hugs to you as well, my dear. I hope life throws you some good luck soon-ish!


  2. I sure hope the storms have passed for awhile, girl. That's a lot to have dumped on you in a short period. Your positive attitude will serve you very well.

    Love ya,

  3. Haven't been to Memphis in a long, long time. No plans to travel there for work any time soon. If so, I'll say hey!

    Happy New Year!

  4. Yup, the present and the future are the only time we can live in. Oh how I wish Tennessee and Ontario were just a bit closer together.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. It means a lot!
