This year has been tough. We buried my grandma on New Years Day. That was incredibly hard for all of us. We were very close, and I miss her everyday. I could not seem to get back into life. Things I loved lost my interest. I was lost.
Not too long after that, we had to put our nine year old dog DeeDee
to sleep. Her organs were shutting down and letting her go was the best
thing for her. Pets are like family. It was heartbreaking to watch her
slowly slip away.
The year seemed to get better for a small amount of time. My brother
got married; I started dating. But 2013 was not done throwing curve
balls. In late August, my aunt contacted my dad. My aunt is not a nice
person. She put my grandma in a nursing home far from us and would not allow
us contact. She had power of attorney, so it was within her ability to
do so. On the phone she told my dad that his mother passed away last
month. Sadly, it was true. After some searching online, he found the
obituary. My grandmother, my last living grandparent, had passed. I
didn't get to attend her funeral or have a proper goodbye. My aunt
denied us that. As you can imagine, I've been deeply grieving. This year
has been hard on me and the rest of my family.
So things have taken a back seat to my feelings. I've neglected my
blog. I'm going to make a serious effect to get back into the swing of
posting. I think it will help. I've got a pile of things to review and so many new polishes to share.
