I am writing this on Thursday night and scheduling it to post on Friday morning. I need a day away from this blog. I will respond to this week’s QTHC tomorrow, on Saturday.
So many of you have written supportive text messages, phone calls, emails, tweets, and Facebook posts. It’s been great.
No one likes being called an asshole, dick, arrogant, stupid, etc. There’s a whole Facebook page full of people who apparently despise me. Yes, that has sucked over the past couple days. But I’m not a martyr. I don’t feel sorry for myself, and neither should anyone else.
I am very, very fortunate, as I have written before, to be surrounded by family and friends. This weekend, I’ll coach my son’s Mite hockey team and pick up our Christmas tree and go to a spinning class and sit in a hot tub with Rachel and Ratchet and Carla and Jim and watch a couple episodes of Downton Abbey. And, of course, Courtney will be at all those things, and will be next to me in bed each night.
Also, I have Templeton Rye.
So all is well.
I asked a question, an honest question. And I got answers, lots of them. No blogger could hope for anything more.
I’ve read the responses, and I will continue to. But I won’t let them consume me.
See you tomorrow.
