I'm so sorry, cat.


Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Thanks, guys. My skin is raw and my eyes are almost puffed shut, but ok. We're on our way to Tyler to tell D19. She just started classes yesterday, and I'm hoping she'll be ok to stay there for the rest of the week. Mom wouldn't want her to mess up her classes.

Thanks again, everyone. As I expected, D19 was eerily unaffected. She's been that way her whole life. Scares me some times, but aside from that she's the most amazing kid I know. I do the same thing she does - compartmentalize - and it makes me wonder if she has seen me do it and learned it that way, or if it's genetic.

I'll go back and get her Friday.

Hi Catperson....me too! I just wanted to send you a cyber hug. I recently lost my dad in Late Dec. I have not posted on this site since 2005 but i've peaked in alot. I have read your thread and just wanted to say that you are amazing. Strong and very intelligent! If you lived near me..no doubt we'd be buddies. I'll have a glass of vino with you in spirit lady!!! Stay the course.

Ok. My skin is raw from crying. Starting to beat myself up for not being a better daughter...all that stuff. Went to work yesterday cos we had a division-wide meeting, but they told me to go home. And my neck is starting to seize up from stress. But I didn't fall apart or anything; but I do tend to push things away.

H has been VERY supportive. Most importantly, he has worked very hard not to get in fights with my brother, lol. I'll have to make it up to him some time.
