Godspeed, Dad

My father passed away on Dec. 22, 2015.

Here's his online memorial site.

It's been a pretty rough month. I really should write about it but I'm not ready to. Still, I wanted to let people know this site was up.

Thank you all for your kind support and encouragement these last few weeks. It has helped so much to know I'm not alone.

Thank you. It's been a hard year so far, hasn't it? Let's hope it goes up from here, for both of us...

We all go through this one way or another. Not that that makes it better. I'm glad you have the support that *does* make it better.

It HAS been pretty shitty. But there have been so many kind and generous people along the way as well. Thank you.

Thank you, dear S. I'm not familiar with that one... I have access to an iPad, would that work? Or on my laptop?

I feel like I've done enough grief support of others to know how to be patient with myself as I go through this... but even with all that knowledge and experience, I'm starting to get annoyed with myself for not pulling up my bootstraps and getting on with things. I know that getting sick when I got home, being stuck indoors during this crap weather, and family craziness all have contributed to things being just shit in all directions (imagine a RainBird but spewing shit instead of water)... gaaah.

Also many hugs to you as you negotiate your own loss and grief...

Fuck the SHOULDs, indeed.

I am making some pork fried rice and then watching Transparent and knitting and not being productive in the slightest. Well, I do have to wash some laundry because I'm down to the Granny Panties...

xoxo!

Aww thanks! It's mostly grown out down to my shoulders again, I just whacked off a bunch of the top stuff to make bangs and layers but left the long stuff. I picked up the top third, then dyed the rest all purple and blue, so now the grey hangs over it. The idea was to have peek-a-boo layers of color. I'm hoping to get decent photos, but it's been all grey and cold here, and my indoor lighting doesn't really do it either. Just imagine a fabulous 'do, and that's me!

Oh, they are adorable! Yeah, that's exactly the kind of effect I was going for. Maybe I could get some video... all I need is some sunshine!
