Kat, just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you during this difficult time for you. Also I just wanted to let you know part of the reason I joined the gym is because of you, Tink, LL, and Jen. I want to be healthy and all of you encourage me even though you didn't know it.

Thank you so much.

And I'm so happy for you joining the gym! You know, I really got into running because of the DIS. After my mother died, I just needed to do something, and running became it. Whenever I have a weak moment, I think, I can do this. And somehow, I do.

One of the things I learned on my tour is that this gym is really into marathons so they have trainers here who will train just for that. I really want to run a race at Disney.

That's awesome. You know if you "like" the runDisney website on Facebook, you'll get tips from their trainer on how to train and things like that. You might like that also.

Hey Kat - just don't you worry about updating! We are here and this is your TR, so you go at whatever pace works. I leave mine go for 2 weeks sometimes, then come back and do 3 updates in 2 days!

I hope you can help your friend and you both can help each other. I'm sure it is a very difficult thing (can't say firsthand) so just know that we support you!

Happy Birthday Squirt!! I bet that year flew by, didn't it! I didn't nurse that long but I remember it being sort of bittersweet when we were done with that phase!

She's an awesome friend, and she's the one who recommended her therapist to me. I absolutely adore my friend and my therapist, so that was a win-win referral!

It did go by so fast. And ending nursing is bittersweet. He's already so independent, this is just one more thing.

Kat,

I just found your pre-trip report and report yesterday. It took all my free time, but I am all caught up. I can't imagine how difficult and wonderful this trip was for you all at one, but I can't wait to hear more about it!

I love your DIS name! Are you absolutely Alice?

I can't believe you've read it all so quickly! Thank you for joining along on my crazy ride.

I have so much more sympathy for people going through loss now, but selfishly it's also so much harder to be strong for them. Part of me wants to hide when I hear about yet another friend dealing with death or even just with cancer. Remember to take care of yourself too.

I talk to my therapist all the time about the "shoulds" -- I feel like I should be handling things better now, after all it's been almost a year. I should be able to realistically accept mom's death, but honestly I'm still struggling with losing such a huge part of my life. And each milestone that happens for me or the kids happens without her and makes things difficult again. I get it. And all I can say is that it sucks and I'm here to listen and understand.

It's hard to remember to take care of myself. I remember how wonderful everyone was for me, and what a great support, and I want to do the same, you know? At the same time, it's so hard.

Ah, those "shoulds." I totally, totally hear you, understand you, and am so glad you understand me. It really, really helps.

You know, my husband said something to me last night that seemed so insightful, even though it was pretty simple.

"It's never going to get easier. Everything you do without her is going to be hard, because you miss her."

He's right. I don't mean it to sound negative. It's not going to get easier, I'm only going to learn how to deal with it better. That's all.
