gone and home again


Since you last heard from me, I have been to the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation Conference in San Diego and home again. I am headed to bed to rest after a long day of travel home, but I wanted to let you know that

it ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who knew that widows would know how to have such a fabulous time!!

I had such an amazingly fabulous time and will update and upload pictures in the next day or two. I want to say thank you so very, very much to all of you who made it possible for me to go and to all of the amazing and HILARIOUS people that I met. My face STILL hurts from all the laughing.........and my bum aches from a crazy jet skiing adventure (I'll fill you in later).

So glad to hear it was a great time! Can't wait for the details. I'd love to hear how it felt coming back to the kiddos, too, and how they did while you were gone.

I'm so glad you had a good time with people who truly understand what you've been going through. (Well, everything other than the jet ski pain...)

This is a joke to me. Get a job!

Jackie said...

Oh, honey, I have a job. A few in fact!

If this is a joke to you, and she needs to get a job.......(which she does have, in fact, I have receipts to prove it), what is your excuse? It seems humerous to me that you seem to have the time to read this "joke", perhaps it is you that needs a job! I have a feeling on opinions, they are like assholes and everyone has one!

Here's to your job hunting! Good luck with that :)
