Everything began with what I think was the flu a couple weeks ago. After recovering, I had to rush around last week putting together a school event for Thursday night. I was basically going non-stop. Even the night of the event was crazy because after cleaning up at school, we packed up the car and left our house at 9:00 p.m. for a long ski weekend in Vermont. Yeah, it's a 4 1/2 hour drive but we were all looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. I was also looking forward to getting back to a more regular blogging schedule this week...
Sadly, while we were in Vermont, we received a call from family that my father in law passed away unexpectedly. Needless to say, we rushed home immediately.
I don't get overly personal on my blog but I felt the need to share this heartbreaking news with you. We have an extremely close knit family and this wonderful man was the epicenter of it all. I loved him like my own father and we will miss him terribly.
I am going to take a few days or so to spend time with family so don't be surprised if I don't post for awhile. On the other hand, I may be inspired to write more - or at least stop by some beautiful blogs to escape some sadness for a bit.
Please give your loved ones an extra hug today and remember to appreciate every moment you get to spend with them.
