Personal

Dear Cory Gardner

I reach out to your office often and I feel like all I get back is form letters, so now I am taking to my blog to talk to you. I have seen in the news that it's probable you are going to vote "yes"…

Schloss Montfort

We shipped one of those Pod things from my aunt's house in MD and it arrived safely today. Mostly we sent mundane stuff like the mattress Heidi had just purchased so Dex can finally have a new bed. But the single most important thing to…

Dear Heidi

It's been over a week since you passed and I haven't been able to really talk about it. I have so many thoughts and feelings, it's a little impossible to sort it all out right now. I knew when mom died, you wouldn't be long…
Father's Day

From Bryan to His Dad

Mortified

Dear Mom

First of all, happy birthday! Normally at this time, we would be sleepily gathering around the speaker phone to call and sing as off-key to you as possible. Secondly, we miss you.

I think I only have just started the process of grieving you because there've been so many other things to go through along the way. If I am being honest, I have had some anger because of the way your affairs were left and the messes I have had to clean up, but I understand that it was difficult for you to do anything differently. I also feel incredibly lucky to be able to put work on hold while I handle things. But mostly, we just miss you.
