It seems like yesterday that I lost my first favorite lady. And each year seem more hurtful than the last. I tried to find things to throw myself into and try not to think so much about her but it’s not working. I tried to reach out to the small circle of friends I have but funny as it may seem none have been available this year. I feel myself sinking not really talking or responding to text and just sleeping. My kids have made their plans for tomorrow and as always try to include me but I don’t want to mess up their holiday. I hate this time of the year and I always wish I could close my eyes sleep and wake up once the new year is here…….. Uggh Grandma why did you have to leave me so soon???? I miss you….. Love Rita

Today was honestly a laid back day. I spent the whole day with my children. We played around the house most of the early part if the day. Then took a short trip out to the grocery store followed by Kmart not sure why I went there but somehow we managed to have fun playing around in the store. I came home and made dinner now that is something I don’t do very often. I made attempts to clean the house and tried to get the kids to help but not much cleaning was done. Then to my surprise my sweet thang popped up which truly made my day complete.. I feel bad that most of the food I made were items she don’t eat. (I feel bad about that) but I was happy to see her. However I didn’t want her to leave but I knew she was tired. Maybe I can get more surprises like that ….. Thanks to my daughter for setting that up. I think it’s cute that they have a liking for her especially since I was kind of hesitant about them meeting her. Lol they talk about her just as much as I think about her (all the time).

I could go for a day of just food.. Start out with a big breakfast bacon scrambled eggs with cheese fried potatoes fried apples french toast. Mmm then lay around nap a little. Then eat a cute lunch with a broiled crab cake shrimp scampi broccoli and mashed potatoes. Then maybe take another nap get up take a hot relaxing bath go for a good walk to clear my head. Then the highlight of my day dinner. I could take a stuffed lobster with a steak with maybe some spinach and a loaded bake potato.. And let’s not forget dessert a nice slice of chocolate cake with some cookie dough ice cream……. Hmmmm what a day can we say fat!!!!
