Andy, I guess your sister wants to celebrate Chris's birth and all that her life gave to you and yours. I guess I can understand her feelings, even if she is slow in considering yours. I feel she isn't ready yet to let go and open the next door. It's hard. We all deal with grief in our own way and at our own time.

Sheesh Andy....I am so sorry love....I can only imagine that yesterday was a very hard day for you. I was all about me and forgot to come and check on you. I think Mrs Terrific would approve of the lovely gifts my husband chose for me...

SO much love. xx

Good morning Overs.

I have found bereavement to be very interesting. Now that the paperwork is winding down, I'm sleeping much better. We were so intune with each other I know she would want me to be happy. She tried to give all of us happy memories. Yes we miss her but it's as if she shared herself out, so gone but not forgotten.

Have a good day everyone.

toots, sending love and thoughts for your dad.

Andy, I’m pleased you’ve got all the official stuff out of the way. I think you all have Mrs Terrific in your hearts, which is priceless. Hugs to you and the younger Terrific’s’s

Suze, sending you massive hugs today. Hope you can get past what's bothering you.

Andy, the grieving process is very interesting and can be very therapeutic, especially when we don't numb our feelings with alcohol and/or drugs. Sounds like you'll be just fine.

We've got about 8 inches of heavy, wet snow with a few more on the way today. Made the morning commute a little more interesting than usual!

Have a Terrific Tuesday, overs!

Thanks love.....my little sister excommunicated me in the most vitriolic and horrifying way imaginable....with a long written message listing the reasons why I am the most vile evil person who walked the planet....it seriously almost killed me.

But my older sister and wonderful people here and of course Nick....have all helped me immensely. I will not cry anymore over this....life is for living. s

(((Suze)))! Relatives can be tougher than non-relatives.

Andy, your wife will always be in your heart

Toots, sorry your dad isn’t doing well. From what I experienced and what I have seen with friends, it’s a challenging time in our lives when our parents become old and frail and we take on more responsibility for them. It can last a long time and seem neverending while it’s happening. Eventually it is over and the result can range from relief to life-changing attitudes.

Have a good day, Overs.

Have a safe trip and my best to your dad Toots.

The Gumball Machine project is almost over, will paint the trim this am and should be able to put it together this afternoon.

I am sorry about your sisters letter Suze no one should ever have to go through that.
