I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific. – Lily Tomlin

September 19th

I haven’t blogged in quite some time…been busy. My husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary this past weekend. It’s hard to believe we’ve been married for that long. Although we’ve actually been together for much longer. The day before we left to go to the lake for the weekend, I got news that was completely insane really. A guy I know, who my husband and I used to hang out with, when we were still able to “hang out”, had died. He was only 30 years old. His wife said he’d been having chest pains for a few days and she couldn’t get him to go to the hospital. By the time she finally got him in the car and to the hospital, he was gone. Massive heart attack….only 30 years old. They didn’t have any kids that I know of, but he has a son from a previous relationship. I feel sad for his wife, child, friends, family. I had only seen him once in quite a few years and that was just a few months ago. I couldn’t bring myself to go to the funeral….. I think that was very selfish of me, but it was just too hard to face. He was only two years older than me. I’m not ready to start seeing my friends die just yet.
