today we went out to do a couple of easy errands. by the time we got home i felt as though a few moments longer and i would have lost consciousness. as i made my way for a lay down i swear i heard alanis morrisette sing her Ironic Song.

we are having a big party and though we are not telling everyone it is to celebrate my passing the 5 year mark. it has occurred to me that it is not completely unreasonable that i could still not make it. we are optimists though and i say if i die before then well it can just be a wake:) that wouldn’t be so bad. everything already planned, people invited, even my sister will be here. it could actually be very convenient for all concerned.


anyway here are the words to her song:


It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay


It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late


It’s like rain on your wedding day


It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid


It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take


Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly

He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye

He waited his whole damn life to take that flight

And as the plane crashed down he thought “Well isn’t this nice…”

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think


A traffic jam when you’re already late

A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break

It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife

It’s meeting the man of my dreams
and then meeting his beautiful wife


yes life can be ironic and the joke won’t be lost on me.

    I think you are absolutely amazing. You must be dealing with pain and sadness, but have found a way to see irony and humor in this situation. I sure wish this was a joke. I will pray that you live to enjoy that party where you are surrounded by the many people who certainly love you. Hang in there, Blake. I’m rooting for you!

      not amazing really! we all have things we deal with and just do the best we can under our circumstances. the strange thing is people imagine i am sad and maybe i should be or at least it would be reasonable if i were. my life is and has been one of such joy and love it makes me so grateful. it wasn’t always this way but i think the hard times make us appreciate the truly good times.

      i fully intend to last beyond this party! who knows? i just take each day as a blessing and not worry about when it is going to end. thank you for your kind words and support.

    But as you commented to an invited guest, “It won’t be a PARTY without YOU!” 🙂
