Sad News and Cousins Inciting Happiness

Woke up feeling good, but took about an hour to get out of bed. Felt okay all day, albeit very sleepy.

Received very sad news this morning that a friend’s father passed away very unexpectedly last night. Although I only ever met the man once, my friend told me lots of stories about him when were roommates. And while I will admit that my friend and I have grown further apart over the years, communicatively and geographically, it doesn’t really seem to matter today. I find myself carrying around a great deal of sadness for him.

Went to lunch with cousins Adam, Amy and Noa. I really miss the other cousins who left town last week so I’m really glad to have Adam’s family back in Colorado for a more extended stay. Adam and Amy’s daughter Noa, the first cousin of the next generation in our family, is three years old and adoramazing. When Mom and I got out of the car, Noa came over and told me she missed me (from two days ago), which of course endeared her to me (even more so than her already extremely high level of endearment) for all of lunch. I was given the honor of coloring in her kid’s menu and signing her name. It’s very hard for me to be around her and not smile.

I slept through the afternoon and am still sleepy. Hopefully there is an easy solution to this problem.

Good night.

It’s a really sad and terrible situation. Have you spoken with him? If so, how’s he holding up?
