Lately, there's a whole lot of leavin' goin' on.

Today's title comes from a new Bon Jovi song, from the cd "Lost Highway".

The boy's father just called me in a bit of a panic. "She's gone!" he says.

She, of course, being his girlfriend. The one whom he lived with when the boy was 5, along with her daughter. The one who left back then, and just came back into the boy's and the boy's father's lives again last year. The one whom the boy made promise that she would never leave again. According to the boy's father, she has a severe 'fight or flight' problem. And was just looking for a way out. And now she's gone, apparently without a word to anyone.

So now on Wednesday, we have to sit down with the boy (who just lost his Uncle, don't forget), and tell him that She is gone, too.

I think certain people are just missing something vital in their make up.

I'm sorry this has been such a cataclysmic week... especially for The Boy.

Damn! Poor kid. I guess he's too young to really, viscerally understand 'better off without them'. I hope you and yours are OK soon.

I'm so sorry all these things are heaping on you and the Boy at once.
