A little update…..


Originally I had planned to take a little summer blog break……

However that break ended up being much longer when my father passed away from a massive heart attack a few weeks ago. A lot has happened since then and without going into too much detail I will just say a death in the family can bring out a lot of nastiness and reveal a person’s true colors!!!! I really don’t know when I will be back blogging, my heart just isn’t into decorating right now.

See you soon!

Des,
I am so sorry for your lost. My Father passed the same way. I was there when he passed and I could not save him!
(I am a nurse). My heart aches for you. I have seen a lot of ugliness at funerals! Fighting right there at the casket! You certainly are not alone with this insane behavior that bursts out during these times.

Oh no! Des, I am SO sorry! It seems we BOTH lost our dads very close to each other. I know that you have shared some of your personal situation with me before. I can imagine the drama going on right now. I have seen it happen before too. My step siblings have caused some drama for us after my dad passed away. They got involved because of the estate having to be divided up between their mom's things and ours etc. I hope that things improve for you soon. I know there can be a lot of hurt feelings during sensitive times like this. It gets extra complicated when you have another family involved too! Give it some time and I'm sure things will eventually get back to normal (even if it has to be a new normal). Hugs!

Dear Des,
I don't post much anymore but just happen to run across this about your Dad. I am so sorry for your loss and sorry you have to endure family issues afterwards. I remember when your Mom passed and how hard it was for you. Sending you ((((((hugs)))) and prayers that things will sort themselves out. People's greed in today's world is unreal. Do the best you can while coping with all the unpleasant things going on around you. Kiss your fur babies for me.

So sorry, Des for your loss. Yes, we have gone through some stuff since my father's passing last November, too with the step kids. Praying it all works out for you.

Connie said...

Just sending you another ((((((hug))))) and hope you are feeling a little better. Its hard enough losing a parent without having family issues arising at the same time. Sending you healing thoughts and prayers.
