Breathe in, breathe out, repeat.

Yes. I'm still posting here beyond questions, polls and humor.

I had to take a step back until life has paused enough for me to type without cursing the chaos in my world.

TheChild is still here with the Grands. It'll be months or years until she's on her feet enough to leave. That will be the subject of many rants, tears, arguments and general stress in my life.

Doesn't matter today because of something only a select few of you have known about.

===
In ye olde nutshell:

A few weeks ago, my wife L found a lump in her breast. Mammogram & ultrasound followed. A comparison on her last checkup showed that the mass had grown a wee bit. So off to the surgeon last week to get it checked out. Lots of worry and fear has made sleeping, coping and life in general very interesting.

L just got the call. All clear.

So complaints about politics, family, the weather, Fox News, unemployment - whatever.

My baby is OK - all I'm seeing is sunshine and rainbows today.

Just being there can be enough. Even when you wish you could do more...
I hate arguing. I'm good at it, but I hate doing it.
Anger is fleeting...at least it should be.
Sometimes, it really is just a Comedy of Errors - not some grand scheme to ruin your day/week/whatever...
Sadly, my car is old enough now where it runs best on Premium.
Time with a fascinating, lovely person can remind you of how great your life is and can be.
With some people - as soon as you give them credit, they screw up.
I need unlimited flight benefits and a large discretionary fund.
Nightmare still suck, no matter how old you are.

My life ain't that bad.

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary with Lennetta.

I look at that number and shake my head -- I am coming ever closer to being married more of my life than not married. It is a fact that I have known L since before many of you were aware of life (hint: it was before MTV). I think that means I am old, but I'll ignore that thought. :)

I suppose I could wax poetic about romance, stubborness and trickery. I could talk about the ups, downs, peaks, valleys. I could write about the laughs, tears, fights and reconciliations.

But I won't because many of us have those stories and scars.

I will simply say this: I could not be the man I grew up to be without her. Period. End of story.

I swear yesterday was Life in a Nutshell.

Morning sucked. Stress and Worry ran rapid, beaten back for a little bit by a Good Thing (getting my glasses back) and a Kind Word (unexpected compliment from an unexpected person at work). Received News from friends and family that helped give Perspective.

Good Food and Support from [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty - then a Household Meeting/Reality Check of Our Financial Future (which was not pleasant but had to be done in these crazy times).

Then Conversations with Good Friends made the night better before Restful Sleep.

And we're doing it all over again Today - because I'm Stubborn Like That.

Today would have been [livejournal.com profile] olliesmama's birthday. She and I were born three days apart so I would call her. Then when we was done, she would laugh and say "Talk to you in 3 days". Then she would call on the 10th and sing to me, Marilyn Monroe-style...never quite making it to the end without giggling. I am trying not to be too sad...

She's been DJing in my head so it’s been Morris Day, Rick Astley and Simple Minds. And giggling in my head – chair-dancing too. It's kinda nice to know that somewhere she's dancing for real. I miss her and will raise a glass in her honor tonight.


As far as my birthday is concerned, I have decided to be selfish. Gonna go out of town with L for a couple days, then taking next week off and doing things I want to do. Or at least try.

Wish me luck.

Just got home.

Long, emotional weekend that I will detail soon.

Tomorrow will come and I will face it...repeat until done.

Been working with Mom & my brother on services and burial plans.

Looks like the service itself will be on Saturday in order to allow family & friends to be there. Dad will be in Jefferson Barracks Cemetery (military) so the burial itself will be Monday.

Will be heading out mid-week.

Thank you for all your thoughts and wishes...I'm in the 'coping' and 'planning' stages. Feeling distracted and can't sleep or eat right - [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty is helping me keep things together.

Dad passed away an hour ago holding Mom's hand. He went in peace and with his dignity intact. Dreamt of him last night - he was saying goodbye. He even left me a message via Mom to make me smile. I will miss him muchly and will try to be half the man he was.

I'll probably have more in the coming days, but I wanted my friends to know.

Love you, Dad.

A younger cousin of mine accidentally drowned this weekend while on vacation in Mexico.

We were not very close, but I feel the loss for his mother and my cousins.

Just a reminder...live life and enjoy it.

Dad has been released for the hospital...still many hurdles (he goes back for out-patient treatment starting tomorrow), but definitely a morale booster for all.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. :)

I wanna be cool enough to say things like : "Doc says their taking out one of my kidneys in a couple of weeks, but I'm doing fine." with a laugh and with the faith.

And mean it.

He's da Man!
