Au revoir

Yesterday morning, my father lost his battle with lung cancer. He was holding the hand of his younger brother and one of my most favorite uncles, Uncle Chuck, when he went. I am so grateful for the fact that he was there and that my dad was at peace and is finally, FINALLY out of pain. I am doing okay all things considered. Thanks to all of you who wrote and emailed and sent well wishes. It meant more than you could ever know. Several of you did more than people who are in my life. I don't feel the need to go into details. Most of you know my history and can imagine who came through for me and who didn't. It does not bear repeating here, does it? This is not about that. It's about my father and how much I love him. I know how blessed I am to have had that wonderful man in my life. I will always carry him in my heart.


This is where the 3 rivers converge in Pittsburgh. This is where my dad's ashes will be scattered. I am thrilled because I love this place. Love IT.



On that note, these beautiful flowers came to my home today courtesy of Mrs. DallasK, Rant 'N Ravin' Tammy and the Football Widow. What a very thoughtful, sweet surprise. Again, y'all go above and beyond and I am talking to all of you internets. Y'all bitches are the bestest. Really. I'm not sure how to adequately say thank you for just being there.

In other news, this will be my last post on this blog. I think that this is a good time in my life for a change and as I eluded to earlier, I am planning on doing a dual blog with Mrs. Pissy Britches. I could not bear the fact that the woman who talks about waxing her vag (oy vey) and thinks American Idol is the best thing since sliced bread was no longer going to post. From what I saw in her comments, a lot of y'all felt the same way. So I conned that HAB into doing this blog with me. It is called the Second Wives Club and the site is www.secondwives.wordpress.com. I am not sure what I will do with this blog - whether I will import all the posts over there and put them under one giant category or what. I don't want them to be right on the page because I want this to be a new beginning. If anyone has some ideas, I'd love to hear them.

So from now on, you will find me over there. This blog has seen me through some really rough times in my life and now is a good time to break with that portion of my life. I have made some fab friends via this blog and I hope you all will follow me to Casa de Second Wives.

Bon soir!

My dear, I am so sorry for your loss - as is my sister, we both are so incredibly sorry this happened.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad. I know you are happy that he is no longer suffering, but it's got to be so hard for you, having been so close to him. Damn! First your beloved FIL and now your dad. Why couldn't it have been the ex-wife?! It's just not fair!!

I will really miss your blog. But, I'm glad you will be writing somewhere new, and I look forward to following you there.
