An Anniversary of Sorts
I have realized that my old way of doing blog posts probably just isn't going to work anymore. In the past I would spend considerable amounts of time writing each blog entry. I just don't have that kind of time anymore. I am so busy with all the various things going on in life that rarely do I have the time to sit down on an evening and write a lengthy blog entry. Therefore my blog writing needs to change. What I am going to try and do is write more frequent, shorter entries whenever I have a few moments. This entry is being written during the last 10 minutes of what should be my lunch hour. I say should be my lunch hour as I have been on a conference call the entire time and shoveled down a bowl of soup between snippets of conversation. Look for more frequent blog updates but much shorter ones. With all that said, today is an anniversary of sorts. Today is the 8th anniversary of my father's death on February 9, 2002. It is hard to believe it has been that long! My Dad lived to be 86 so he had a good long life. But it was kind of cut short by a medical mishap. He had to have an endoscopy to deal with some issues in his stomach. Unfortunately at the end of the procedure the surgeon punctured his stomach - which of course led to him dying a couple of weeks later. It's one of those days that I will always remember. (But then again I did forget about the 10th anniversary of my Mom's death back in August! I might have forgetten because I was distracted by the events that were taking place at the time, as Zack was in the middle of his emotional/mental meltdown.) Hope everyone is having a great day! Thanks and peace to all! ~ J.
