I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone for your support over the weekend! Friday sucked, no doubt about it. I didn't get much accomplished at work because I was so nervous about what was going on. I didn't even eat. We've never experienced anything quite like this before and it wasn't a cool way to start the weekend. I'm still not going to go into detail about what happened because it's not entirely my business to share. It does directly affect me, hence my freak-out on Friday, but that doesn't give me permission to share details.
I will say this - I am SO glad the person who caused all of this is a massive liar, because if what he initially told us was true the situation would have been a whole lot worse. Like possible police involvement. But thanks to the fact that half of what he says isn't true and the other half is a lie means it was all a means to an end and we're better off cutting ties and moving on. Which we have. Once we learned the truth, we felt a lot of relief and it's been easier to put this behind us and look forward to what lies ahead. We're still hurting a bit. Our situation is insecure. There are some things that are unclear and we have a lot of work to do, but we feel an assurance that there IS a plan for our family and that things will work out.
All of that being said, commissions are STILL open and I could really use them. Even more than I did before...
On another sad note, my in-laws had to put their sweet dog Jenny to sleep this last Saturday. (This weekend wasn't the happiest for us) She was 13 1/2 years old and was going downhill fast. We were all amazed she lived as long as she did. We got to go say goodbye to her though, which meant a lot to my husband since they got her when he was in junior high and she was practically his dog. Her passing was very peaceful and I'm sure she's much happier now - no more pain!
This weekend has shown me once again that sometimes life chooses to rain on us; sometimes it chooses to pour. But we get to choose how we react.
We freaked out a bit at first - I think everyone is entitled to a freak out now and then - but we've decided to dance in the rain and look forward to the sun.
