I've still not been feeling well, and have been down lately - and wallowing, it would appear. I'm not sure how much is emotional stress and strain and how much is possibly a virus (my boss is sick today, and another co-worker is out sick with something else).
But I want to say again that I am really really lucky to have such awesome and supportive friends! (You know who you are!) I cried a couple of times at work today, briefly. And it wasn't all because of Fred either. (Though some was. It's been a tough week for me on that score, and yesterday I broke down and e-mailed him simply asking how he's been. I don't know why I bothered, he won't respond. It's been three months as of last Saturday, and tomorrow would have been our 1 year anniversary).
It also hit me today that in 4 years I will have lived half of my life without my sister in it. It's been 14 years today since her car accident (some guys coming home from a party, with "open containers" in the car. They survived. I am very anti-drinking-and-driving as a result. Imagine that).
Sorry for going on like that up there...I really had meant to just paste this fun little naming quiz in here, that my co-worker buddy sent me to cheer me up. Have fun with it!
