    Thanks for so much honesty. You have every right to be grumpy. I just keep praying for progress – whatever that amounts to – to be made and for healing to happen and for both of you to get better – in all the ways you need and want to.

    I don’t think you do Grumpy NEARLY as well as I do. (I can give you some pointers if you like.)

    P.s. you still do a pretty great job as sister and roommate/landlady, in spite of the #s. Just in case there was a spare # or two lurking around for those.

    Sweet lady – how beautifully honest is your post. Can I just say, you are not grumpy, you are normal. Normal in the context of your life as it is right now. Deep breath, one moment at a time, love and laugh when you can and cry when you must.

    You’re beautifully aware of all the subtleties of your emotions, and I think it’s important that you are writing everything down. Many of us can relate to the chronic over-committing! I’m sure you’ll make it work going back to school at the beginning of the year, and don’t forget to add some much-deserved down time to your lists. Hugs.

    I think it’s likely important to go through periods when you don’t like yourself as much as you normally do. It’s a sign of healthy self-reflection and emotional awareness (that they say sociopaths, for example, don’t experience.) Meanwhile, I’m sure everybody sees you as just as fun and sweet-natured as you’ve always been, despite what you’ve been through lately. And just as pretty, too! Re: Grump #7 – not petty at all. On a related note, I’m sure your hormones are still out-of-whack, which surely doesn’t help your mood. Be kind to yourself – as a mom, wife and teacher, you deserve it, even apart from your grief.
