Surfacing

When the aforementioned Jane Hair died, my mom was inconsolable. And my dad said to her, "Are you sad for Jane, for all the things she won't see, or for yourself?"

My mom was pissed. Because, quite frankly, the answer was "Both. But more for me than her, because things are harder without her here."

So we're still feeling sorry for ourselves here at Mama Rahree's house, but it's getting a little better, or at least a little different each day. There are meetings with people to get Papa's affairs in order, calls to return to innumerable friends (thank you!) who we just haven't been able to talk to through the sadness, comfort food to inhale (weight watchers is definitely not watching us lately) and lots of bad, bad movies to watch. After meeting with the lawyer? Alien vs. Predator. After the security guy? Ghost Rider. I've been checking in on work email periodically, more for a distraction than to actually work, but tonight some of my favorite folks are in town for this show - so sad I'm missing it!

To those of you who have called, emailed, and sent good vibes my way, I cannot tell you how appreciative I am. This has been the hardest week of my life so far, and you've helped me get through it.

Please let me know if I can return the favor.
