So, I’ve sort of been dreading this weekend…. with it being tied to a lot of the best memories last year.
Especially with this year being another year with awesome weather.. that it would have been great for making the trip again.
But, it actually hasn’t been that bad.
Fourth of July was actually a lot worse than Thanksgiving as far as longings…. with things being so much fresher then…
And the past couple of days have been ok.
The christmas tree and lights and decorations are up. 🙂
Last year, I didn’t even get the tree up until the week before Christmas…. and it’s been several years since I’ve had the open time to mess with lights.
They aren’t the fanciest with me still having the hurt leg…. lots of draping instead of outlining.
But they are up.
I won’t say that I won’t wish that things had been different… but life is moving on.
I’ve reached the point that I’m ok again with going to the mall across from where the prince/captain works…
And I’m able to survive movies with love themes in them without battling tears.
Life continues…. whether we are ok or not….
But this didn’t go nearly as bad on me emotionally as I’d feared.
Christmas was more mixed feelings…. and new years he was sick, or at least was claiming to be…
So I think it’s going to be alright. 🙂
