I’m not sad to see last year go. My grandfather died, and a good friend of mine found out she had terminal cancer. Since we lost her on New Year’s Day, technically she died this year, but the last two months of last year truly sucked. Her funeral is tomorrow, and Hubby, Sir, and I are going.
It’s going to be a very, very sad day, even though we’ve been mourning her, in essence, for weeks now since she never really recovered from her surgery. I sat with her in the mornings for the two weeks she was in Moffitt and went with her to her radiation treatments, it was the least I could do. It’s hard to believe we’re never going to hear her beautiful laugh again. She was truly a mentor to me when we got into the lifestyle, and it was through her and her husband that we met Sir.
On the other hand, we all know she wouldn’t want us sitting around on our asses and moping. Life goes on, for the living. If I survive this damn fibro flare I’m in right now (thanks to stress and a cold weather snap) I’m going to have four books (as of right now) coming out with Siren in early 2012, including the long-awaited bridge book to the Triple Trouble series. “Fire and Ice” is tentatively slated for an April release, which leaves me now working on books 4-6 in the series.
May 2012 be a better year for all of us.
