Yesterday was a day of happy news…  today the pendulum (by the way is that the right spelling?) swings back…  Two sad things today.  One I knew, today is 1 year since my sister-in-law passed away (she was only 46).  It is still amazing to me that she is no longer here – it doesn’t seem possible.  How could, why did this happen?  Questions that will never be answered.  Doesn’t seem fair — she was so vital, with a beautiful family.   One other sad item I didn’t expect is my friend’s cat, 17 years old, passed away.  Yeah, I know people and cats are different, how could I compare.  Well, I don’t think I am comparing, just saying that I was saddened today when my friend told me.  I was there when she adopted her then kitten, I was a reference for the shelter, and while I am not a cat person, this one held a special place in my heart.  I will miss her.  OK, writing about my sister-in-law has resulted in tears running down my face; I think I need a tissue – excuse me for a second…A little better now…   sometimes a good cry helps.  Does it work for you?  I don’t think you can ever underestimate the cleansing of tears.  Now that I have done that, I need to focus on the good, positive things…  One thing I am looking forward to is, this weekend another sister-in-law and I are taking our niece to her first spa day (another thing that you should never under estimate the power of a spa day).  I’d like to think her mom would like that we are doing this…  

  • PS on a separate issue…  I can’t believe the Elliot Spitzer scandal!  What was he thinking!  Such a hypocrite!  I hope he gets the same treatment he would have given to someone else!  Have you read smokinggun.com?  If not, and your are interested, check it out.   Can’t wait to see what the late night entertainers say tonight – last night David Letterman was great – loved his top 10 list.  🙂
