I am so sorry that we have not been all "sunny and light". I am so sorry that we have not had a daily shot of Sue's spanked ass. And I am so sorry that you are tired of all the whining.
This blog was not started as an entertainment blog. This blog is our life. And our life is not always pretty. Especially now. And if Tom needs to write to be able to work this out, then he should be able to write. And if that writing offends you, all you have to do is not read it. There is nothing in the "rules" that states you have to read every little thing that is written here.
Right now we are working at getting by and staying together. People who are our friends, should be able to be supportive, and if they cannot do that, perhaps staying away from us until we are all back to "sunny and light and spanked asses" might be better for them.
Reading what Tom writes is hard. It is sometimes painful. But it has been a way for him to work through his losses and pain and depression. Sue and I remain supportive and love him even when his writing is less than pleasant. That is what we do for the people we love.
I usually keep my fingers off the keys when I get ticked off. But I am tired of hearing people who call us friends, call us whiners. Yes, I said us....because if you point that at Tom, you point at Sue and me also, since we are a family.
Today has been a shitty day. I spent it with my Mom and she is not getting better. She is more needy and it hurts me to see her suffer. It hurts me to see her gasp for breath. It hurts me to know that this is probably my last Christmas with her. And I come home to blogisphere crap and I just want to scream.
If you haven't anything constructive to say, keep it to yourself. This is our blog. You are guests in our lives.
