You may have noticed that I was Tweeting up a storm at Mixed Conference. However, before I even left the mountain, everything came to a screeching halt. That’s because my boyfriend came to pick me up from the conference and had to deliver the news that my dad passed away Sunday morning at around 2 am. 🙁 I had sort of hinted at some issues at home in my posts recently and that was because dad was in the hospital. He never did like me to publicize his health. So, I never mentioned everything that was going on. I want to honor his requests by not going into detail about everything. I’ll just say that it was a very rough couple of weeks for me.
That being said, we thought he was going to come home in a few weeks. If I had known he was going die, I might not have attended the conference. Nonetheless, I went to it and virtually all of my family knew before me and then had to keep it a secret until I was notified. I logged on Monday night to put up a couple of quick posts but haven’t been online much at all since I found out. I also haven’t worked but 1 day so far this week. It’s been really hard.
In trying to honor my father’s requests, I am not going to post much more about his health or his last extremely difficult weeks of life. I simply wanted to let everyone know what is going on with me as I’ve been a bit out of touch recently. I promise I am trying to read the emails and will try to respond to them in due time. I’m also trying to keep up with my deadlines. Like I said though, it’s been hard. I still can’t believe he’s gone and I don’t know where to go from here in many aspects of my life. I’m just trying to maintain some sort of normalcy and continue on with life right now. So, if it takes me longer to respond to emails or something, please understand. I am trying and I am still here.
