About 10 years ago, my husband Sean and I went through a period we now refer to as ‘The Summer of our Discontent’. Starting in July, bad things happened…..lots of them…..in quick succession. Deaths, illness, accidents and surgeries were piled on top of all the regular stuff of life like car troubles, house repairs, family baggage, work hassles and…..well……you get the picture.
Before this dreaded period began, we were strolling through life, minding our own business, watching more than our share of Thursday night TV, and generally doing what people do. Sure, stuff happened….some of it a total bummer, but nothing we couldn’t handle.
Then BAM! The shit started hitting the fan and just wouldn’t stop. Life changed……in a big way.
