Last month was very busy, but things FINALLY began taking a positive turn last month. Keep reading to see what I mean:
My brother and sister-in-law visited from Georgia. I hadn’t seen them in over 5 months which was much too ling in my book. Plus, it was the first time that they got to meet my boyfriend (Facetime is nice, but not the same).
Took my dad to a concert for an early Father’s Day gift – A Hard Night’s Day (Beatles cover band)
Started crocheting again
Visited our family friend’s new baby – it had been YEARS since I held a newborn
Celebrated our family friend’s (the Faulkners) 90th birthday. Bill lives in Minnesota with his wife and his health has been diminishing due to Alzheimer’s Disease in recent years. I make a point to see him and his beautiful family as often as possible
Started trying out BeachBody on Demand’s 7 day Shaun T workout. Even though I didn’t quite make it through (I’m not great at HIIT workouts), I enjoyed the other video options and was proud of myself for taking the initiative for working out at home.
Presented my Faith Share aka Life Story to my small women’s group – talk about emotionally draining…
I miss him. Everything about him. His blue/green eyes, his dimples, the way he’d sing to me in the morning, how he’d carry me to bed when I fell asleep on the couch, drinking wine and binge-watching House of Cards, riding our bikes to the farmers market, the way he’d leave the cabinets open and half empty glasses of water everywhere.
Waiting for him to come home, grocery shopping together, nights at “our” pub, him always knowing my order when we go out, surprising him with his favorite (mango) treats, leaving notes around the house for him to find. The way we just fit together.
