I would like to thank the Academy...

...Har har har. In all seriousness, I would like to thank [dead link, bye-bye], a website devoted to promoting psychology programs, for recognizing my blog in its "2010 Top Widowhood Blog" award category. Most of the other award-winners were already on my blogroll; the ones that are not, I will be sure to add. If you click on the badge link to the right, or on the link with this post, you can see the full list of winners. This award is kind of a bright spot in a huge bummer of a year....for obvious reasons. I don't think anybody sets out wanting to write a widowhood blog. I was a vanilla blogger, and I lost the love of my life, so I started this.

Thank you for reading my blog, [dead link, bye-bye]. I deeply appreciate it.

2012 Update: I have gotten two testy emails from [dead link, bye-bye] and per their request, I have removed it. I'm keeping this post, since it's kind of a historical record and such. This blog is no longer active--I post new posts to WordPress. Except today. Bless your little pea-pickin' heart, [dead link, bye-bye], and I mean that in the most SOUTHERN way possible. But, *snif,*  thanks for the memories.

One Year... of last Saturday, November 6th. I was too full of grief that weekend to post. I went up to NY for the one-year memorial service. It was good. More on that later. It's still too fresh now...

I hear that when one of the new Star Wars movies was bootlegged and dubbed into Chinese, they translated, "Nooooooo!" that someone said when a character died, into "Do not want."

Yeah. I think that sums it up pretty well. Do not want. The whole shebang and ball of wax. Do Not Want. Waiter, this is not the life I ordered, may I send it back? Ugh...

...And now, for my second set of holidays without him. Do Not Want.
