They say that bad things go in 3's. I'm not superstitious, but . . . . Last week my 24 y/o nephew was killed in a car accident. And then, last night our long time very dear friend passed on. She was quite elderly, but had been in good shape until two days ago. Still, it's sad to lose her. And then, this evening, I was watching our local news and up pops a picture of my (another) friend, and the newscaster is saying that she was found dead in her house today! I almost passed out, I was so shocked. (Sigh) I thought I'd be seeing her at the baby shower I'm co-hosting this Sunday. I immediately called a few of our mutual friends and nobody's heard any details as yet. But, we all heard it the same way, which was a terrible way to find out something like that. She was a very successful and well-known professional. She was divorced and her only child, who's DS's age (25-26) and friend, I've known since kindergarten, now lives out of state. I just had to call him and let him know. Sad.
Sorry . . . I'm rambling again. I'm just flat-out stunned and upset and sad. I'm really glad that the old saying isn't "Bad things run in fours", or I don't know what I'd do.
