One Month


The Kid died one month ago today. That occurred to me just a few hours ago. I kept telling myself today was August 31st. It's September 1st. I KNOW. Happy Anniversary is wildly inappropriate. It's right up there with going to a non-Jewish funeral and asking who will be attending the after party. Guilty.



I worked on an essay about hagamuffin today and recalled so many fabulous memories. I laughed and I cried. It was cathartic. It was difficult and that's OK. I still miss him so much. I think I always will. I need to learn to live with that, which I will do... eventually.

You never stop missing them, but that's good. They're always with you.

I am sorry. We just inherited another one today. Shawnna the lab/rottweiler mix of my friend that passed away needed a home.

If Happy Anniversary gets you through this, than by all means, "Happy Anniversary!"

After seeing Wedding Crashers, Evil Spock is looking forward to meeting girls at funeral after parties.

I saw a dog at the festival that looked so much like him. Got a bit teary-eyed thinking of you at that moment.

Ever wanted to know what you do when you meet a Jew?

I thought I commented on this already but it appears that I'm wrong once more. Louie Jewie is happy you laughed and cried.

In other news, I caught the last few minutes of a 'TVography' on 'The Facts of Life' and I couldn't help think of you. They apparently wanted to do an episode where Blair loses her virginity but LeeWee refused and had herself written out. Natalie did the deed instead. I laughed and thought of you and wondered if Lisa's ever bothered to write you?

Anniversaries are so hard--one week, one month, a year, the holidays, any occasion you remember a special time with your companion.

Thinking of you.

The first year is the hardest. Hope you are doing OK, sending some hugs your way.
