(all of our more recent pictures are still packed)
If death happens in 3's I sure hope that our bearded dragon, Fluffy counts as one. I'm not sure how much more Scott and I can handle right now.
Yesterday we found out that one of Scott's best friends, Kristi has died. He has known Kristi since he was a kid - She became his first love and then best friend.
She went on to marry Chris - he and Scott became such good friends that Chris was his best man in our wedding.
At this point we don't know what happened. We only know that Chris found her dead yesterday morning.
One of the BIG reasons we were looking forward to moving here was so that we could be closer to Chris and Kristi and all hang out again...
My heart aches for Scott - He wants to drive down to New Mexico to be there for Chris - but with my dad's memorial/funeral coming up it seems impossible. Scott needs to be there... I wish I could wave a magic wand and get him down there - make work disappear for him for a few days... How much more can we take this year? I feel so worn out right now that I can't even feel anything - I know that it will all slam into me in a few weeks once everything has settled down.
Our bearded dragon's death seems inconsequential in all of this - poor fluffy... You will be missed too my little buddy.
We love you Kristi - I am sending all of my thoughts to Chris and your beautiful children and to my husband Scott who has lost a really good friend.
