I butchered that.
The first sentence should say:
It sucks when things all seem to happen at one. I'm not going to tell you someone has it worse than you because you know that and it wouldn't help YOUR situation.
(My angels could have helped me a bit with that, but I'm sure they're all up their laughing their butts off.):)

I'm the one that needed to be supportive and it was draining me. My FIL was very religious - Polish Catholic - and my MIL thought that it would be a good idea to keep the holiday exactly the same so it would be easier on the kids. She was wrong. Everyone, including my husband, had a breakdown at some point today because there was just a huge piece missing. They didn't even talk about him, there was just a big elephant in the room. Finally my SIL found a picture of him to put out - after 3 hours.

The first holiday is always the hardest, I know.

I took a nap and woke up to see the basketball player on tv who broke his leg and all of the people crying on TV. No more crying today!

Ummm, you are religious right? I get confused with everyone, really need to make a spreadsheet on all of you.
Yes, Catholic. I just want to be able to comfort those I love and I am feeling helpless again today.

You have been the rock for so much of the family, both yours and your husbands. You have shared some of you vulnerabilities here and that makes it all the more difficult to watch you soldier on and continue to be strong.

Crying is okay. Crying is okay.You don't have to be strong all the time.

For April Fool's Day, I bought a bunch of googly eyes and have started afixing them to food items in the kitchen. And the phone inthe kitchen. I keep them in my pocket, so as more people arrive and put their lunches in the fridge, I'll add eyes to them.

Dog is often the first one up and posts the columns. His shop is having periodic layoffs. Not good for him but he gets to sleep in and so the rest of us scramble to post Amy/Abby.

It is just a pleasantry, not a cheap shot.

Awesome.

I really want to mess with my friend S today who works remotely from PA. I'm trying to think of a story that's believable enough to get him yet crazy enough to freak him out. Could be work-related or personal. He's the big brother I never had and is a great jokster. I feel like I have the fact that I don't have to be face to face to pull this off on my side, but I haven't come up with anything creative yet.

For some reason, I invariably find googly eyes hilarious.
