Check check checking in...

I only have a minute. I am terrifyingly behind at work and trying to get everything approved before next Wednesday. I wanted to say that everyone at my house is feeling better; well, not the cat. He is still hot, fat, and tired. Brandon and I are feeling better in the head and heart, if I may dare speak for him. It was a dark week or so; I laid out of work playing the Sims, watching Intervention, and drinking rum. Oh yes, and feeling very sorry for myself.

However, the clouds are lifting because life has to go on, no matter what. You have to be somewhat philosophical about these things, and tell yourself that although you were happy and excited, it wasn't the right time. And the right time will come, right? As the Avett Brothers said, "To this awful news, try not to hold on / The day will come, the sun will rise, and we'll be fine."



Anyway, I also wanted to try and express to everyone some kind of thanks and gratitude for the overwhelming outpouring of love and affection we received from everybody. It's the terrible times that make you realize what a community is, how much care and concern means, and how important it is to be loved. People brought us booze and pie and hugs and showed us how sad they were for us in so many different ways. Thanks to all of y'all. You have no idea how much it meant, really & truly, all of the messages and comments and everything else.

I know I texted this to you, but I am so obsessed with Neko Case's song "The Pharoahs." I think I must have listened to it on repeat ten times yesterday. Please, please listen again for me. I know Neko belongs to you and not me, but I want to share this song with YOU, kid.

I'm glad you both are feeling a bit better. Shane and I were concerned about you two. See you at the Farmer's market soon. Maybe we can grab breakfast after or something.

I did have some Magic 8 Ball thing to say, but it sounded guess what? to magic eight-ish.

I love you. I'm glad you're feeling better.
