when death hits... what a week
I just spent the weirdest day walking around and looking at people's faces. Trying not to get depressed. Earlier this week my MIL fell and broke her femur and while we were worrying about that and her getting through the surgery (with many of your well wishes)
on Friday morning my husband's boss died. Just Can't Believe It.

Well, my DH can coz he watched him drinking over the past years and crashing his car, falling off chairs, breaking his nose last weekend.
No wonder my DH has had so many serious migraines for a year.

This man was only in his 50s and a well known figure in the computer world, internationally even. 2 children and a loving wife. What a mess alcohol can bring on. It's funny, when you go out into this city (NY) there is just no one to talk to ... no one. I'm so glad I can come here and read everyone's stuff and, well it made me feel much better. I just find myself getting so angry that a person can throw their life away so easily... you can't make someone get help that's for sure. Whew.

sad and a waste
we choose our path even knowing that it is hard to witness the results of a person's actions on those left behind..

wish you MIL a complete recovery.
