Now that I’ve had some time to think, I really feel bad about posting what I did the other day.
I’ve got several friends with REAL problems; children facing illnesses, legal issues before courts that blatantly ignore the facts and perpetuate injustice, other people trying to just get by and get jobs … and here I am complaining because of a situation I put myself in. I knew Tom was bipolar before we were married and I was arrogant enough to assume that I “understood” this and was able to handle it. That I can’t is no one’s fault but my own.
I feel like I owe my friends a giant apology. I do know this: absent a physical, life-threatening situation, I am not going to kvetch about this ever again. End of topic.
In other news … I was heartbroken yesterday when I heard the Habs had traded Jaro to the Blues for the equivalent of a bag of pucks and a used hockey stick. Actually, I was downright po-ed. But I have since heard from several sources that he didn’t want to be in Montreal any more — in fact, may not want to play in the NHL any more — and has had offers from KHL teams.
I’m not happy about it, but what are you going to do? I’m not going to stop being a Habs fan over one player — I like Hal Gill, Scott Gomez, Subban, Cammy, Pleky, etc., etc., and if I’m disappointed, well, hey! deal with it. Being from Cleveland, I’m used to getting wrapped up in players who vanish the following season. C’est la vie.
