If you wish to help…


Okay, so this post is going to be different and shorter.

I wasn’t going to do this, but I have been urged by several of you to say something, so I am going to and because Izzy has asked me to as well.  If you wish to help, with what I am sure is going to be outrageous medical bills, car repair expenses, furnace repair, etc. (and yes, this is being edited by Izzy).  (Izzy, if you get to throw the car and the furnace in there, I get to say it was you who did so!) (She is leaning over my shoulder as I write this…) Anyway, of course you can always hit the donation button at the top of the page and donate just like you would for anything else.

Additionally, and unbeknownst to me, Izzy has started a Go Fund Me page because she is worried about the medical bills.  (Aww, isn’t it sweet!  They grow up so fast!) (Yes, that was sarcasm.)  She did it all on her own and didn’t even tell me about it until after it was a done deal and no matter how much I told her that I kinda felt like that was begging, she told me to shut up and stay in my lane.  She’s over 18 so there’s very little I can do about it, but now she’s forcing me to send it out to you guys.  Here’s the email she sent to me to send to you:

I thought you might be interested in supporting this GoFundMe, https://gofund.me/c93b664b

Even a small donation could help reach the fundraising goal. And if you can’t make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word.

Thanks for taking a look!

So, now I’m supposed to ask you to please share it with all your friends.  Can I get to the rest of what I want to say now, Izzy?

Okay, we’re alone now.  Geez, what a bossy kid we raised.  But…I sure am proud of that little dragonette.

Anyway, a little bit of good news today, and I will take every scrap of that I can get.  Well, TWO pieces actually.  We nailed down the time and date of Mary’s services.  It’s going to be 2 pm on Monday, so there is time to plan and such.  Once the obituary is up, I’ll send you guys a link, which will then give you all the information on both of us you’ll ever want to know, but hey, we’re all old friends by now.  I think it’s only fair since a lot of you will go searching for it anyway…I know I would.

And the second bit of good news is that the car is not a TOTAL loss.  It is repairable, so that beats the hell out of trying to buy a new one, or in what would have been the case a “good enough used one.”  Don’t ask me what is wrong with it because my dear commander is handling the details and she is not sharing.  When I asked she said, don’t worry about it, you have enough to worry about right now, it’s not a total wreck, it’s fixable and being fixed.  You should have it back by the end of the week and it’s only taking that long because they’re quite busy right now cause it’s that time of the year.

So, that’s my update for today.  No ranting tonight.  Last night’s almost killed me and I don’t think my emotions can handle another one like that one for a while.  I did actually laugh today.  Izzy made me laugh and it was a great feeling.

I’m going through some old pictures of Mary for the services and came across an old video and accidently hit play.  It was very short, only like ten seconds or so, and Izzy was laying across Mary’s lap rolling around and Mary was laughing like hell.  It made me laugh for just a second and then it made me cry for like 3 solid minutes.

But…

That     one     second     was     GLORIOUS!

I just might make it out of this alive.

Love and Happiness to you all.

Cheers!
