What was your last dream about?
What types of vacation/holidays do you prefer?
...but I'm going to need all the emotional support I can get and my journal is friend-locked and I don't have that many friends.
I'm flying to Texas for the week of Thanksgiving to be with my sister in law, niece & her family. This will be the first time I've been there since my brother died of sudden cardiac arrest 3 years ago.
Anne, my sister in law, and I talk weekly and this past Sunday, I did not like the expiratory wheezing I heard from her. Granted she's asthmatic and Texas was in the middle of the remnants of Hurricane Andrew so it was damp...but I just did not like the sound of her breathing. She's 73, and I just have an urgent feeling to get down there, my fear of the emotional hit of not having Sam there notwithstanding.
My life and my profession have taught me to go with my gut. It's going to be hard, but it's almost been 8 years since Ron died and I've been able to get through events I never thought I could. And, besides, that's why they serve alcohol on planes. And in airports.
I promise I will NOT be whining about this for the next 4 weeks. Throwing up in the privacy of Le Chateau, however, is a different story.....
