I want to first shout out a thank you to my early reviewers of my novel Unbridled: LAB, Ladytuono, and RSO Kent. Thank you for your honesty and feedback. I appreciate it beyond anything a blog post could ever say!
It’s the end of the week, and I hope everyone is excited for the Memorial Day weekend. Work ended well as our company president let us out two hours early today. I am Blessed to work for someone that generous and cool.
I was able to do a few errands: go to the bank, buy some potting soil for my poor Spider plant who has grown out of her old pot, and do some laundry. Husband and I had dinner, and I called my mom. All was good. The only thing that was probably disappointing today was that the baby-making journey still continues, but at least I can party a little bit more when I go on vacation in June to see friends in Philadelphia.
Tomorrow the husband and I will finally get to do some more errands we’ve been wanting to do around the house. I still need to unearth my summer clothes now that the Chicago weather has decided to skip Spring this year. I went into my closet today to grab a shirt only to find sweaters. No, I don’t miss the Polar Vortex at all!
Sunday I will see my client for my at home Supported Living Assistant job, and I have to do some research on something we can do. I hope the weather is nice. Monday, Mom comes out for a visit while my husband grills and I’ll make salad and sides. Then Mom and I will enjoy some suburban shopping. I might take her to Savers.
Memorial Day is going to be tough for Mom and I. I miss my dad alot, and I know she misses him a lot too. It’s been hard but he will be sorely remembered even more this weekend.
I intend on drinking a beer for him and having a pork rib, knowing in spirit he would enjoy those things with us too. And I hope my husband and I can give my mom a day where she won’t be lonely. We will have to create new family traditions now that he is gone.
Blessings and Cheers to all.
