Good Bye Roomie





My college roommate died today.

I went to visit her this morning after I dropped off Spotty Chop. Funny thing is I almost didn’t. My kidney stones were making themselves know and I thought “well I have the day off, maybe I should just stay home”, then I thought “she has frelling cancer, that hurts a bit more, shut up and get your ass in gear.” So I drove to her house. When I got there the nurse was getting ready to get her up for a shower. Her mom told me to run in and say hi. Her hubby was in the room working. I gave her a kiss and said hey, I thought I would read to you (I used to read to her before we fell asleep back in the day) and she said that would be nice, she would like that. I told her to take her time, I wasn’t going anywhere. I went back to the kitchen grabbed the kids and started to play. I kept playing when I heard folks yelling for each other. I ran to grab the little dude (2) when he ran out of the room and out of the corner of my eye saw her on the floor. I kept the princess (5) busy playing camping even though she wanted to go potty. And then the nurse came and said she would watch the kids if I wanted to go in. I didn’t get what I was seeing. Everyone was crying. She was just slipping away.

Be at peace my friend.

God better Frelling enjoy the sox you are knitting for him

I love you

I miss her already. I miss her more because I know I won't be able to see her until I pass through the veil, too. What kind of world will it be without her big brain spewing big thoughts out of her big mouth? (And you know I say that with the utmost love....) I hardly saw her, I hardly spoke to her (shame on me) but it was enough to just know she was there. What are we going to do?
