I know it looks like I'm insane with all these posts within minutes of each other.
Really I'm not. At my most recent CT scan, the doctor said I was normal.
In reality, I wrote these earlier today (yes, as in Thursday, September 18, 2008).
I can't help it I can't sleep.
I also can't help that I thought of these while taking a bath and just had to write them all down.
So I was thinking...
Intro to my book
So many of you have been saying I should take these blogs and somehow turn them into a book. And like everyone else, I’d love to somehow be famous. Somehow tell the world about my amazing husband and my journey into widowhood. So here is how it would go.
Title: “Unmarried female age 27”
First, the dedication:
"To my dear
You all know who you are whether you are dear friends or my dear husband where ever you may be."
"So you picked up this book thinking it was some late twenties guide to singlehood before you hit the big 3-0. Well, sorta kinda but not really. This is a compellation of short entries written after I was shoved back into singledom at the dear age of 27.
Just picture the prized pig from the state fair that has just won the first prize. She’s all bathed and she’s all pretty. She’s just a happy ham smiling ear to ear. The day is bright and the music is softly playing in the background.
Somehow her crate falls off the back of truck on the way home, the crate completely busts open, the music comes to a screeching halt, and she lands in the biggest dirtiest mud puddle this side of the Mississippi.
Well, that’s what happened to me on August 28, 2008. My very happy, very young marriage ended and my absolutely fabulous husband passed away. Six days before, we were in a very bad car accident. Roger’s injuries were just too great.
In order to erase the terrible memories of those six horrid days, I started collecting all the cool memories I could recall about my dear Roger. I also documented the grieving process for me in hopes that maybe someone else out there may be comforted by knowing they are not alone."
So am I normal or crazy?
