Hey Mr. Grumpy Gills:

As it turns out May, 5th wasn’t the terrible day this year that it has been in the past. It turns out it was May, 6th! I received some rather unsettling news today, nothing earth shattering or disastrous but nonetheless troublesome for the immediate future and as the voice on the other end of the phone informed me, “I meant to call you yesterday...”

Oh well, buck up sister. At least I didn’t wake up dead. I now have a very clear idea of exactly what day that will be, May 5th but I probably won’t know I’m dead until May 6th.

In the wise words of Dory, "Just keep swimming...just keep swimming...just keep swimming...swimming...swimming..."


  1. I'm glad to hear it wasn't earth-shatteringly bad news...but still. I'm sorry.

  2. you just hold on now, you hear!
    Hoping you get through it...whatever it may be.
