Hi there! It’s nice to see you. It’s been awhile since we’ve managed date, thanks for joining me for lunch. I brought gluten free pizza from a place near my office with artichokes and chicken. It’s really yummy!
So how are you? What have I missed in the last couple of weeks? Last week I had appointments all day and I didn’t get a chance to stop by. Don’t worry, everything is fine. Even things she thought might be the cause for the recent weight gain are all “normal” so I suppose I just have to try harder.
Today is what Matt and I call Lance Day. It’s the anniversary of his passing and it’s not an easy day, but this year I thought about it a little all week so it didn’t blindside me too much. I still miss him. There’s still a tender spot in my heart that aches, but I feel him with me often. I know he’s looking down laughing at us and smiling at our good days. I hope he’s enjoying a dark beer with Mehmere now and again too.
Just today a little bird (different from Mehmere’s bird) stopped at my window, tapped once and looked right at me. He flew away before I could get a photo though. Bummer. Maybe he’ll come back.
I think it’s because I’m a little bummed today that I picked a bright pink shirt and butterfly scarf to wear. I look bright and happy even if it’s not entirely true at the moment. Fake it til you make it, right? I try not to be too bummed out and heaven forbid no crying. He really hated that.
Maybe I should have stayed home under the blankets today and watched Willy Wonka? It would certainly be warmer than my office right now!
It’s a tropical 64*F in my office today and it feels brrrrr cold. I think I’m going to have to get another hot beverage. I think some decaf spiced tea is in order. A little milk and one sugar should do the trick and hopefully warm me up too.
If sweaters, sweatshirts, fleece blankets and mittens aren’t an option, how do you prefer to warm up?
I have to run and get something warm. I am really cold! And I need another distraction because I’m feeling sad. I hope you have a great rest of the day and fantastic weekend.
