Sorry I’ve been missing, but I’m here. Exhausted and fighting a cold but here. Last weekend was a tough one emotionally. One of my dearest friends (who lost her husband last August) moved back to Florida. She’s been living with family in Seattle & Florida for the past 7 months, but packing up her house took more of a toll than I expected. The finality of it hits you like a ton of bricks when boxes are stacked and closets emptied. This was the house her husband and her moved into days before they had their first son. I expected them to grow old there and it really sucks when life throws you a curveball like they’ve experienced. Our sons laid on blankets when they were only days old at their first “play dates” and I always imagined taking prom pictures there when one of their boys was bound to take Sidney girl to a dance. Life’s not fair.
I’m thankful for amazing girlfriends who pull together to help out in times like this. It’s comforting to know you’re never alone. I’d love to write more but I need to take some NyQuil and get some sleep, plus the more words I write about my friend the more my throat closes up like I’m going to ugly cry.
I’ll be back later this week with some fun things for y’all: including hatching easter eggs that made Jackson believe we were hatching the Easter Bunny. For now, thank you for your patience. Miss you all!
