Hi bees. As you can probably tell, I try to keep things pretty light in my posts. But last week was a rough one, so we’re gonna take a tiny break from happy wedding things. In the span of just a few days one of my best friends (Bridesman Microscope) lost his father and was in a dreadful car accident. Then, just a few days later I had an uncle pass away. When it rains it pours. What makes all this worse is I can’t get to anyone because of the stupid snowstorm. Bridesman Microscope is truly an amazing person, and doesn’t deserve all this sadness and stress. And my aunt was married to my uncle for over 50 years, so I can’t even imagine what losing him feels like. Although I have my own sadness over all these things, what is breaking my heart is that helpless feeling when there isn’t anything you can do for the people you love. Of course I can talk and listen, send flowers, give encouraging messages…but none of that really, truly takes the pain away. Isn’t that one of the worst feelings in the whole world?

That’s a neck strap for my saxophone I’m wearing, so I’m pretty sure we’re at band camp…can’t you see the nerdiness coolness oozing from us?
