I found out yesterday that my aunt passed away. She was the last of my dad's siblings, there were five of them. My dad passed away ten years ago. It's hitting me pretty hard, I think the combination of her passing and it reminding me of my dad, and then all of this happening while pregnant and knowing that my daughter will never meet these utterly amazing and loving people… well it's a lot.
I have taken the next two days off. I would like to go down to Florida for the funeral but am not sure if I can get a flight, and one that isn't a kazillion dollars.
So this is what I look like right now, and may look like the next two days if I can't get a flight. Very tired, very sad, still sick, and in desperate need of hibernation. It was already a tough week…
When they say you get emotional and hormonal when pregnant, they aren't kidding! 🙂 The past 24 hours have been a bit of a roller coaster, and my plan is to rest, meditate, heal up and come to terms with everything. I look forward to “seeing” all of you on Monday and hope everyone has a good weekend. Take the time to contact a distant friend and relative and tell him or her how much you love and appreciate him.
