Power Grief and Doritos

I've been off-line the last couple days......

I've been with my Garmisch sisters.

Pictures will be posted soon.....

And I have to say, if you have something you need to sort out in your life, if it be death, divorce, heartbreak, bankruptcy, in-grown toenails......go sit on a beach with your sisters.

Eat bags of Doritos and drink margaritas. To hell with yoga, aligning your chi, high cholesterol, counting calories.....throw it out the window, at least for the weekend.

Go sit on a beach, stare at the waves. Discuss important topics such as which sea bird would be the best to go drinking with?

The answer? A pelican (of course)

Howl, howl at the crazy moon. Go skinny dipping in that cold, cold Pacific at midnight.....moon that moon right back.

Curse God, love God, love your sisters, cry, hug, laugh until you think you might throw up....and then laugh some more.

Talk about your daughter, talk again and talk some more.....no one listens better than your sisters.

Sing Jimmy Buffet at the top of your lungs....top that off with Melissa Etheridge and the Steve Miller Band.....call it the Cougar Musical Trifecta.

Sit with a dog on your lap and a glass of wine in your hand.

Last but not least.....eat a corn dog and a funnel cake.

Get on that plane on Monday wondering why you're so sore and wondering how you got those bruises on your leg. Sit on the plane laughing to yourself as you remember the weekend.

Sleep for two days.

No one said it would be easy but that's power grief for you.

Thank you my Lovelies. Thank God for my Tribe.

Hi,

You don't know me but Heather Stewart is a dear friend of mine, who just happened to say the most flattering things about you as a writer and a woman. She mentioned your blog and I can now see what she meant.

I too have spent some wonderful girlfriend weekends at that same beach house and agree that the times we've spent there have been some of the most healing and hilarious times that I've ever known. So cheers to the friends who help us turn the world right side up again.

Wishing you all the best,
Karen Christensen
