This has been a crazy...and sad night...

Life can be so crazy. Truthfully? I don't have a good feeling about 2014. I think it's gonna be the year of death...

and it's started already. I talked to my sister the other day. We have a cousin who has cancer and she called him to see how he's doing. She asked about his sister who lives in Florida. Well surprise, surprise...she died 2 months ago! I still can't figure out why no one told us...it's just crazy! As for the cousin with cancer...he's had it for years and he's to the point there is nothing more he can do so his time is about up.

Then tonight...well let me back up a bit first. My ex-husband lives in Illinois, married with 2 adult kids. He was a rotten father to our kids, pretty much ignored them. His wife and her family shunned my kids and treated them like dirt.

I'm not sure how it all went down but my daughter got a text from her half sister in Illinois that their dad (my ex) had an aneurysm in his stomach that had ruptured and was being flown to a hospital in St. Louis. He was in surgery for 8 hours then was in the ICU in critical condition. Of course my daughter was beside herself not knowing what to do...go out there or wait for more news. Me 'n my girls know that if they went out they'd probably get treated badly.

Next thing I know, my phone rings and the ex died! My daughter was hysterical and to make matters worse, she was pretty much intoxicated. I finally got her calmed down. I had been talking to my other daughter, discussing what she thought about whether Lori should go or not. Let me explain...

My oldest daughter was 5 when I married my ex...he adopted her. Due to some problems when she was a teenager, it pretty much killed their relationship so although she feels bad for her sister, his death doesn't affect her personally.

But the next week or so is going to be rough for me. Both my daughters will go out for the funeral and I just grit my teeth knowing they will be made to feel like outsiders. My youngest wants me to go, too but I said no. The ex's wife, even after all these years is jealous of me. I have no business being there, even to give my girls support.

Why do I feel like 2014 is going to be the year of death? Because so many people I know...and some family members...are just not young anymore. And as stupid as it sounds, even my cats are old and their health is going downhill. Anybody with pets and have had them for a long time knows it's hard to lose a pet, they're like a family member! I don't know how to explain it...I just have this bad feeling in my gut...

Anyway, I'm tired and freezing! I'm gonna turn my electric blanket on high and go to bed. It's gonna be a rough next few days.

I totally understand. Nothing is forever, unless it's death and taxes of course.

Seriously, try to enjoy life to the fullest without worrying. Life is too short the way it is.

Enjoy every bit of your family and pets while they're with you. After their passing, they will be with you in spirit, and one day you all will be reunited.

Softie I am sorry for the loss of what was. When daddy died my mom was there for us girls and like you she'd been divorced from daddy for many years. Its up to you weather you want to go not the current wife.

I truly hope your prediction is wrong, and that 2014 doesn't turn out to be that.

My condolences to your daughters for their loss, and I really hope the step mom doesn't act like an idiot....

Well Shawn, I don't worry. Ok Ok...I fuss a little now 'n then but I don't WORRY...there is a difference, really.

Thanks Lisa. I don't want to go. I think this isn't the time to make a point of anything or cause problems. I simply don't belong there. If my girls were young then, yes, I should be there but they're all grown up and I think it's something they need to deal with together.

Sorry Sugar...What I said only applied to my life and I have good reason to feel that way seeing that there's a number of people, both friends 'n family that are probably not going to see 2015. And so far, stepmom is being decent. I can only hope she will be the same when my daughter gets there...I don't know if both are going or only my youngest.

Hog...I gave it some thought but yanno, this isn't the time to cause any problems. My girls are old enough to deal with it...48 'n 53 (OMG...how'd that happen???) Anyways, Mom's just gonna stay home and chill...literally! It is so frikkin' cold! My New Year's resolution is to hibernate 'til the spring thaw...lol

2013 was the year of death here, My mother and two of her sisters passed away, They were all in their 90s so it was not unexpected. It was a bad year all the way around and I was more than happy to say good bye to it, I am hoping things work out to be better this year so I can get my life back on track and move forward,
