Sometimes life is just beyond not fair

I wrote this a couple of days ago, but couldn't publish until now. I wanted to post it, so I am going ahead and doing so.

I'm sitting here in my no-tell motel,a stone"s throw from califmom's house. she offered me the couch, but I didn't want to impose. Being that tonight is the night before her husband's funeral, it didn't seem right to stay. I flew up this afternoon, and spent the evening with her and some of our Blogher/twitter people. We laughed and ate and drank...almost forgetting what brought us together. Almost, but not quite.

I hate the fact that tomorrow we will be sitting in a church saying goodbye to her husband. Afterwards,we will drink. Sadly, I will board a plane for L.A. on Tuesday. I can't be here...I have my own obligations at home.

The good news is she has really good support here in real life. I just wish it could be me.

Still, she has angels, one of whom is, @mcqueenie23 who is organizing a meal fund, so if you want to donate, either message her on twitter, or hit her blog. All of you who read this...you are awesome, you know this, right?

UPDATE: Califmom posted her post about the funeral, you might want to read it.

T, who hopes you can help

You are a good friend and that is all you can do. I've been reading califmom's blog, and the funeral sounded like a beautiful tribute to a great person.

Karyn: what you are doing is sweet.

Tony: Thanks, I am fiercely loyal, and I try.

JennieB: It was an amazing memorial. Truly.

hoping you're safely home and well, too

Janet: what a nice thing to say. I did eventually get home. My flight was delayed 96 minutes, but who's counting? Oh, yes, that would be me.
