First I want to say thanks to all who have been there for me in some form or another. Thanks I really appreciate it.

As the title says “I think I am back”.

So Beth dies Friday morning so after that is taken care of I head home to deal with what has happened etc. When I arrive home I find this,
House 1

House 2

House 3

House 4

So this little diversion was interesting, only my house suffered any damage. There were some outdoor grills tipped over as was the out house at the quarry, but not a single piece of damage to anyone else.

Just goofy.

Well I have been fortunate that a busy social calendar has minimized the pain of the previous mentioned events. Steve (her youngest) came over and spent the night and most of the following day. We watched movies, he played xBox and I caught up on emails of people who responded. The next night Larry had what I would call “I am going out of town and I have all of this food that was brought over” potluck. The food was good and the time spent with friends and family was really nice. I am feeling better, at least I don’t fall into the dark place. Don’t get me wrong I miss her, but I know she would want me to move on and enjoy my time here as much as possible. So that’s why I am back posting.

On to new things, the insurance adjuster was here as was the guy I have contracted for my new siding. It is not hard to guess they are going to replace the entire side. Now I have to deal with the association on color matching as I do not want to reuse what is there. I am sure the siding is fine as the other 100+ units are fine but there is definitely some odd wind happenings.

Well as most of you know from reading this atrocity on the internet my last long term relationship was with a woman named Beth. She has been diagnosed with cancer and just a few months to live. She is 53. Check your bucket list, still got time? Well yesterday morning she fell when try to get out of bed. It appears that she fell on her face but was able to get her elbows out to minimize what probably could have been worse. He nose did get crushed and of course it was bloody. Her son David heard the noise and went up to see and he said that she was not breathing and have to give her CPR. He cleaned her up and the mess all over the floor, then got her back in bed. He called Hospice and then called me.

At first I thought this is the call I do not want, but when I heard what had happened I was less worried. So I grabbed my work laptop and headed over to her house. Besides her nose she look good, she was awake, conscientious and glad to see me. I think David was glad I came over as fast as I did. Well long story short I spent the day working from the foot of her bed to insure that she did not leave her bed unattended. Her youngest brother (Keith) made if over before 4 pm and we all talk for about an hour or so with the social worker Kay. Then Keith made a run to Steak n Shake and bought the three of us dinner, Beth, me and himself, David was asleep. After dinner we talked about nothing in general at 8:45 pm I decided to go home and catch back up on things.
