Not spinning. Reeling.

I had another post already to go in my head tonight for the Spin Cycle. We are spinning UFO's this week. I had planned to list all the messages I would send out into space to the aliens on other planets on one of those beaming projects people do. I can't remember any of them. The only message I want to send out into outer space right now is "Life sucks sometimes and babies die. Hope that doesn't happen where you live."

I have a good friend with 4 month old twins and one of them died this morning. No one called me at work because they knew how I would react, but I found out when I got home, and they were right, I did not take the news well. I can't properly express my grief about this. Knowing that I'm two and through with babies, she was generous to share her twinsies with me in all kinds of ways and I love them both. Loved them both I guess. Adored them both. And so I can't really know how she's feeling right now because I know you never really know how awful something like that is unless it happens to you, but I still do.

So Aliens, I hope this kind of thing doesn't happen where you live.
