What if, speaking of relatives, my mom asked me to keep any developments about my sister's cancer to a bare minimum when telling other relatives?.

What if I can respect that, it's not like it's a small town where everyone HAS to know everything?

What if, I've learned the hard way not to share "too" much with some people anyway, so I get it? Razz

What if my sister's getting decent treatment and doing somewhat better?

What if, in other news, not so much happening, waiting to hear from someone about a movie we were working on?

What if, indie movies, music, books, at least creativity is keeping me out of trouble(somewhat)??? Razz Big Grin

what if a misc relative reunion in a couple weeks?

i can't say it's a family reunion cause i no longer have or am a member of a family. i do have miscellaneous relatives & that's what this gathering is for- cousins & their kin & me. But that's okay i guess, not like i have any other options.

what if it's almost summer, my long time fave season, & i just don't care anymore?

What if this has been the worst summer of my life?

What if I don't think there will ever be a worse one after this since Monday?

What if my Dad died unexpectedly from pneumonia complications. He'd been in the hospital for a week and the docs kept telling us he was doing fine, then better and better and then...the phone call and I'm like WTF???

What if I can't get my head around it, I'm pushing forward trying to be there for the family, help with necessities such as arrangements for the memorial, whatnot...obits...most of that is done but I find I'm just sort of standing here like a lost kid in a supermarket wondering where Dad is.

What if, should there BE an 'afterlife," I hope my dad's watching a ballgame with my uncles and grandparents and is glad not to have to worry about supermarket lines again, much less other earthly stressors.

What if aside from that...F--- 2018.

what if condolences for you, Kate?

i know what you're going through, having lost mama xc in Dec 2016. i lost my dad in '94. His doctors kept saying he was getting better then he passed from a major heart attack a week later. i've found that too many doctors suck or have some hidden agenda (often money) that overrules really caring for patients.

It's hard, i know it is & the loss will always be there. i'm not sure how close you were to him but if you need to, there ought to be places in your town where you can call just to talk to someone who isn't family. i do believe in an afterlife.

what if remember the good times with your dad and cherish them. Maybe base a character on him in one of your stories. i did that with both my parents in the books i'm writing.

Take it easy, Kate. i'll be thinking about you.

((((((Thank you, xc))))))

What if I will write more later, right now I'm kind of at a loss for words but it really meant a lot to read what you wrote. Thanks!

What if, I like the idea of putting him in one of my stories...I'm writing one now about families and relationships and all the stuffage that goes with that...on another planet. It's been healing, writing all that down. One or two characters have some particularly awesome traits similar to my dad.

What if, my mom just gave me a bunch of stuff of his including a travel bag, a bottle of metformin(I have diabetes like he did) and a cat. They'd had two cats, Bessie and Rose and Bessie really hated everyone except my dad. Rose was always very human friendly but liked cats too. Bessie had no time for Rose so my mom thought she'd be happier here with my cats. So now we have Rose. Right now she's hiding behind the piano but I'm sure she'll come out soon. If I can give her the same care my dad once did, that'll be at least some comfort. Cats are good for comfort anyway...

what if i finally saw some miscellaneous relatives on Saturday? It was a hot day -but i like it hot- and there was gathering of cousins in a town south of here. It's the kind of relatives you mostly see at funerals and rarely the rest of the year. They see each other much more frequently than i see them, my being the cousin. But that's okay, better than having no relatives at all.

What if maybe another reunion on other side of the family soon maybe?

What if it's getting somewhat easier dealing with my dad's loss, mostly because my relatives are pretty cool and they've sent some good warm wishes and memories?

What if it's nice to hear my mom say it helps her to pack all my dad's stuff up...kind of her way of saying her goodbyes as well?

What if, gone but never forgotten!!!

What if...it helps to have Rose here, too, she's very sweet and I think it helps her to be around her former human's daughter, altho she's a little shy around the other cats still. I think it's because Bessie, who pretty much established that she wanted to be the ONLY cat in my parents' house terrorized Rose, really. This was a big incentive for my mom to give Rose to me. She's coming out of her shell nicely. Smile



What if...gonna listen to some more music and write, maybe do some money budgeting today. I really want to get an above ground pool for the backyard. It's only 100 and something bucks but we need to be able to afford it so...budgeting today. It's nice to be able to share a home with the ex hubs now that the drama is past and we're friends. We do co-own this place and thankfully it's paid for, except taxes and bills. At least I won't ever be homeless, something my dad was comforted by before he left...

what if mama xc helped me and i helped her through papa xc's passing?

With her gone, though, the remainder of the misc. relatives assume people should get over it in a short while. Hell with them,they're only close to people who are still alive. Someday they'll be grieving for someone they're close to & maybe they'll realize what i'm going thru...or not.

what if my mom got rid of my Dad's stuff too quickly then regretted it later on- however. i saved some of his stuff from being tossed out & later told her about it. People make too many rash decisions too quickly after a death.

No what if's about it,

RIP Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul

Her version of "Until You Come Back to Me" has been my favorite song of all-time since i first heard it many many moons ago.

Such a great, unique voice.

What if Labor Day, end of summer, and I got an above ground pool last month???

What if it was great for 2 weeks but then the pump started acting up, it leaked, then I couldn't find a filter for it cuz it's hard to find that type of filter even in pool supply shops, so I ordered one from Walmart.com??? Razz

What if, then, the pump REALLY stopped working so I ordered a whole new PUMP from Walmart??? Roll Eyes

What if it's coming tomorrow though, and hopefully the weather'll stay warm enough...usually in Philly warm weather lasts throughout September and even first 2 weeks of October?

What if I wanted to get this pool in June or July but couldn't manage money well enuff but after my dad's memorial service I said fuggit and splurged anyway????

What if, this one is gonna last, not gonna have it fall apart and have issues like the last pool we had in 2013?

What if...therapy comes in many forms! Big Grin

What if on another up note, my health is slowly improving, found a great place that specializes in joint pain???

What if...slowly but surely gettin' my shite back together? Razz

What if, trying to produce a movie, need a film and edit person and I hope I get one soonage!!!

What if, now that my health is starting to pick up...slowly but surely...I may just beat these doldrums that have lasted for nearly 5 years. Razz
