ODD MOMENTS

It is no secret that this has been a rough couple of years. Lots of trials, tribulations and many challenges of the spirit. Yet, the battle is being won day at a time. Things are getting much better.

Still, there are little "set backs" and things happen that are hard to understand or define.

Today, Karl and I had to do our taxes. Karl has been going thru a great deal with the death of a dear friend and being placed in the position as Executor of her estate. I think the stress of it all has taken a big toll on him. We had not seen each other for about a week or so.

As we sat with the CPA and reviewed papers for him to prepare our tax returns, and then, on the way back to our respective neighborhoods --- there were feelings of awkwardness. Disconnects. It was odd to experience these moments wtih someone whom I have shared so much of my self and my life.

This is a year of transition for us both. Maybe it is normal.

Transition, in my experience, SUCKS. And again, in my limited experience, that suckiness is normal. I have decided I can't stop change from walloping me from all sides, but I can brace myself for it as best I can by surrounding myself with the best of what is familiar and comforting. I'm sure it was odd and vaguely unpleasant and I'm sorry. One battle at a time, lovey. Chin up.

Well said Matt. Yeah, who needs these odd moments in our life, but I guess they're necessary.

They're like a void that we're trying to fill... But with what?
