Loss

It's been a while - and a tough time for my family and me. My stepdad passed away very unexpectedly on November 30.

He was my kids' hero, my husband's buddy, and the light of my mom's life. I think we are maybe still in denial. It's still so very hard to believe he's gone.

I've been doing a lot of knitting and rav-trolling and trying to get through the end-of-semester grading/drama/ice storm/snowstorm bullsh*t. Guess it's a blessing to be so busy.

Hug your loved ones tonight, and be safe.
