I’m not usually one to quote celebrities, but in this case it’s fitting.
Consider this an apology for the lack of posts with any real substance over the past few weeks. My boyfriend’s father has been very ill, and we’ve been spending most of our time at the hospital to be with him and his family.
When I first typed that last sentence, I just wrote “…to be with him and family.” At this point, having spent so much time with them (in what are unfortunately poor circumstances) I think of them as my own family. We rib on each other, we joke, and we support each other – and right now I think we all need that. Rob’s future sister-in-law and I may have been loopy enough last weekend that we were criticizing fish in an ICU aquarium while watching Titanic… if that’s not bonding, I don’t know what is.
I haven’t said much about it before now because it’s a private family matter, but I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t abandoned you – just need some time to let life happen. Please keep their family in your thoughts.
