I don't normally get too personal on my blog, but I am devastated at the moment, and I'm sure you'll all understand why I might have to take a short break from blogging and reading blogs, etc.
Yesterday, we received the bad news that one of my husband's sisters was seriously injured in a fall. I'm not going to go into the particulars, but she's in really bad shape...and at the moment, it's not looking too good. So with the limited funds in our bank account, we bought Jerry a last-minute airline ticket and he rushed out of state last evening to be with his family. (Thank goodness we live close to the airport because he didn't have much time to spare!)
The Girl and I are holding down the fort the best we can. She's obviously upset about her auntie, but she was devastated that Jerry had to leave so unexpectedly. She cried at the airport, cried on the way home, and bawled her eyes out last night when it sunk in that her daddy wasn't there for her good-night kiss. (Thank goodness for cell phones, or I'd be going even more crazy that I already am!) I'm thankful that I'm able to modify my work schedule so I can take over Jerry's role of dropping her off and picking her up from school, trying to keep everything as normal as possible for her. But it's still hard.
Anyway, for those of you who pray, please pray for my sister-in-law, my husband, and their family. I've been told that it'll be a miracle if she survives through the weekend, but miracles do happen, so I told him not to give up hope. And thanks for just letting me babble. My house is awfully quiet right now, so it's nice to "talk" even if it is only typing. But all my blog buddies have become an important part of my life in a way I think only you all truly understand. And I truly appreciate it.
