~A Long Week~


It's been a long week.....Lots of cold blowing snow, a few no school snow days, Valentine's Day in the middle of it all, some migraines and 7 months ago today my Dad passed away......It's been a long week, I haven't blogged for so long it seems like an eternity. I even shut my computer down for 26 hours because I just couldn't look at it anymore.
IS IT STIR CRAZY??? CABIN FEVER??? HIBERNATION??? BOREDOM???
I'm not sure what it is but I am happy this week is over and it's the weekend. I miss my Dad most of all....and wish I could have just one more day with him. I can't believe it's been 7 months ago today that I sat and watched him die. I find peace in my heart knowing that those last few months are not the way he wanted to live, he was not the person he was, just sitting there, not able to do anything, not even able to eat. And I have to thank God for not letting him live like that for years....Time to COWBOY UP and get back into the swing of things. Get back to the countdown of SPRING.....as it's my favorite time of year. As the old saying goes....
TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!!

Amy, it is so very hard when we lose them, I lost mine 25 years ago and still miss them terribly. Yes, you definitely need spring, it is Cabin Fever. I actually saw a bird outside my window yesterday, he's tweeting away as I type, so keep your chin up, maybe spring is coming after all!

Oh how I understand......My mother passed away 11 years ago but on that day many memories flow. It will get better with time and I thank God for the memories we keep with us. I also have been snowed in and it is cabin fever..........Hugs to you.
