How do you blog about something you can't talk about. As in, something that is affecting me, weighing on my mind quite heavily, but is not happening to me, and therefore, I really can't divulge details....
Let's just say that a close family member of mine is going through something very, very difficult right now. And it's affecting all of us, the immediate relatives. It's one of those pull-together-and-help-anyway-you-can kind of bump in the road, but it has very, very deep roots and implications.
I don't really know how to help, I don't know how to deal with it, I don't know how to get it off my chest without breaching the family confidentiality.... it sucks!
If I am absent for a day or two, please forgive me, because right now, even the antics of Dumplings arent blog fodder, not until I clear my brain a bit. But I promise an update very soon, since tomorrow night, I am taking all the employees out for a nice dinner and a lot of booze... there should be lots of stories there, and I have no quams about keeping THEIR confidentiality!!!!
