Hello Toni, it's me--mom......

I'm doing okay. Don't worry about me.

I'm adjusting.

My daily routines are a little off-kilter.
My world has been turned upside down.
And life is a little blurry.
No one has been doing the dishes while I'm a work.
So I haven't cooked a meal since you've been gone.

I'm adjusting.

I never knew I could get the hang of texting.
But, I'm doing pretty good--aren't I?
There's now candles burning around the house in honor of the technology gods to thank them for the internet and instant messaging and texting.
And I'm *this* close to getting an I can text even better.

I'm adjusting.

Funny how the house feels awfully quiet even though you were never all that noisey.
Maybe I'm just missing the sound of your iphone beeping and blinging.
So, I've been blasting Bruce tunes, playing air guitar and singing at the top of my lungs--off key, of course.
The neighbors are very confused.
But, of course, aren't they always?

I'm adjusting.

Somehow the house seems very empty.
Not that you even took up that much room.
Maybe it's because we're missing so many pairs of shoes from your closet.
So, I've done a little shopping.
I'm now in hot pursuit of an amazing little top and a sassy pair of shoes to go with those skinny jeans I bought the last time you and I were out.

I'm adjusting.

So, how are you?

When "bad" things happen to "good" people, Judi, it's often because they want to become even better teachers, guides, and helpers to those precious souls who will one day need them to be their rock.

Plus, today's bad is always tomorrow's boon, no matter who you are, no matter what has happened, and no matter how weak the chai latte was.
