Life.....

.....Can be a bit of a bummer.

My dad died yesteraday. 
And while expected, it was unexpected. 
And though we were not close, there is still a hollow feeling in the middle of me.
I seem to ache everywhere.

I leave for Seattle on Sunday to help my sister with things.

But first we celebrate my son's 13th birthday - several days at that. 

I am still going to try to participate in Andrew's challenge and my beads have gone off already 
for the Bead Soup Blog Party (all the way to Poland!!!!)

Needless to say, my Muse has run screaming from the house! :)

I will be dark here for a bit.

Ready for this to all be over............

:)

Awww Courtney, send hugs and love your way. No matter how close or distant your family relationships are, you're all still connected. Hope your son can have a wonderful 13th birthday and that you enjoy the time you get to spend with your sister!

{Hugs!}

I am so sorry for your loss Courtney.....I lost my dad last year so I do know how you are feeling to an extent..And also know there is really nothing anyone can say at this time to make it any easier, he will live one in your memories, I hope you have some good ones......

We'll all be pulling for you until you resurface! Hang on!

CraftyHope said...

I can say I know the feeling as my father also passed many years back, and I too did not have a close relationship with him. Of course, every situation is different and I really don't know how you are feeling.
Please know that my sympathies are with you and your presence will be missed while you take the time to deal with things. (hugs)

I'm sorry for your loss, Courtney. I understand. I lost my father unexpectedly 6 years ago. We were not close, but there is still that missing link in your life. Take care of yourself while you are helping your sister.

I am so sorry for your loss. You might not have been close to your father but I am sure that this is going to leave a hole.
