I don't wanna get too mushy here, but I just want to say a very heartfelt thank you to all you guys who've left me such supportive comments & e-mails over the last few days regarding my family; I can't tell you how much it means to me. When I first started this project, I thought it would be pretty much a one-man show; I never expected anybody to really give a damn, so thank you for thinking of me & my family. As much as it probably helps me, I'm not sure if I'd still be doing this if you guys were'nt reading it (or maybe I would), so don't think I don't appreciate it...

Things are still pretty stressful around here, and I still can't really gather two coherent thoughts in a row to actually blog about anything. Spent most of the weekend with my mom, just trying to be there for her...something I should have done a lot more often in my life; don't take your mommas for granted, folks.My grandmother called me tonight by accident; she hit the wrong button on her speed-dial, but she barely spoke to me, she just got right back off the phone. I don't even have enough of a grip on my emotions to know how to feel about that right now...

Meanwhile, I have all of one job lined up between now & Christmas, and this weekend I had to miss the recording session for the commentary track on the feature I've been working on 'cus of all the drama happening, so I'm out that money, too...not to mention I won't be on the track. And you know what; I'm anonymous here, so let me just go on the record & say that I don't give a shit, 'cus it's a crappy freakin' movie anyway; they're lucky I'm even putting my real name on the there. Still, the cash would be nice...

And now I've been sitting here for 15 minutes trying to think of somthing to say besides just complaining, and I'm not having any luck, so I'm just gonna go watch Desperate Housewives on tivo & pass out. Yes, you heard me right....

hey x,

hopefully things start to get better soon. its rather unfortunate when the people who should bind together in the time of need, and stick it out no matter what, turn on eachother. because they know no other way of coping.

ive been keeping up with ur blog, almost religiously - thank you for opening up and letting the world in on your experiences. you have actually helped me see things about my own relationships, that i had not seen before. thank you.

i hope all is well, and know that i am thinking of you and your family and i hope everything gets resolved soon. my best wishes to your great-grandfather!

Ah, the beauty of anonymity ... wish I'd been smart enough do that. :-)

These are obviously difficult and emotional times. Hang in there, lean on your friends, focus on your mom.

(And Boston Legal is a pretty good escape, too.)

Howdy. I've been reading your blog for awhile, just being entertained/enlightened/inspired, but never so much as I did upon reading about the junk your family is suffering through. Seriously, you really gave me some perspective.

My own family has gone through a tortuous time over the past 8 months, suffering a very significant loss, though not the same circumstances as yours. Today I am realizing how unbelievably grateful I am to have my family still intact during a time when we all could have splintered to a million pieces.

I suppose that doesn't really sound encouraging, but I thought you should know that your words have touched yet another life, and that I'll be thinking of you, and your family.

Glad you're still hanging in there.

I never expected people to read my blog either, so it came as quite the surprise that I've actually made some real friend through it.

I walked out of a voice-over job over the weekend because the music tracks weren't finished, the script wasn't finished and what was ready just plain old sucked. Prolly won't work for that group again, but oh well. I primarily sing for a living, but I do alot of local voice-over stuff too. So I'm with you on the "coulda used the money" thing.

hope things will get even better. . . can't wait to read more about the exgfs.

Speaking of family troubles, it's really hard to be caught in such awkward situations. What's harder is being left with your mother and you're not supposed to be giving any damn comments or she, too, will explode.

So . . . read your blog as it was linked to Frankie's and sounded like an interesting blog to check out. I would say I'm sorry to hear about your family, and truly I am, but I think you've gotten quite a bit of those comments already. So, instead, I'm going to say. . . where's the rest of the Maria story?
