    ((HUGS)) to you, and Bacardi, the way you worded this is absolutely perfect! My dad died in June 2006, which was sadder than sad, but after mom passed April 2004, this is EXACTLY how I felt and could never really put it into words. Now, with the hubs having cancer and worrying about his outcome, every day I just feel like I'm existing on a parallel road from everyone else.........

    ((((hugs)))) to all
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Back to Normal.. or as close as I'll ever get


    You'd think after 10 years of "practicing" I'd be used to it.
    But nope, still a little sad all by my lonesome.

    It does not help that every other commercial on TV (My houseguest for the holiday) is shoving Family & Togetherness down my throat.

    {HUGS} to all the loners & newly or not-so-newly bereaved.

    Thanks, OP for thinking of us.

    It's just my husband & me, but I still can't imagine Thanksgiving being the same again. It was bad enough when a much-loved cousin was shot in the head & killed by his own nephew in a deer-hunting accident the day before Thanksgiving back in 1995. That in itself made Thanksgiving a sad holiday for us. Now this.

    The Thanksgiving cocktails made an earlier-than-usual appearance today. I'm surprised my posts don't read "Zfrtsaa exnlko gjhoioso hajdje".
    Oh, I just read this. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You must be devastated.

    There are no wise words from me, but I know when my mother died, I appreciated hearing comments about her, as opposed to hearing nothing, as if she never existed. I still feel the same way about talking about her, about things she said or thought, about recipes she made, funny stuff, annoying things, whatever.

    My thoughts are with you and your husband.

    Bacardi1 I'm sorry this happened to your family.

    My heart goes out to all of you...

    A very very close friend of our family was brought home last night and not thought to make it through the night. I haven't heard yet today if he passed or not... it's my dad's best friend, the most kind intelligent person I know. Very difficult.

    Ah kimball, right there with you. I'm not alone, but just me and my parents, not quite how I would have pictured it a year ago. But ditto on the surgery (no riding, and awful, gloomy weather) and the recent end of a very long relationship I didn't imagine would end.

    The good news is, things must be looking up from here, this crap month will be over soon!

    P.S. Thanks Alagirl, it is nice to have a place to remind you that you aren't really alone.
