Overwhelmed

So this last Thursday, the firm I work for threw their holiday party. It was a beautiful event held in the "whale room" at the Museum of Natural History. I had such an amazing time! Laughs, good times, good food, good drinks. We danced so much that no one could believe how crazy everyone got on the dance floor. I mean, a Global Director started doing handstands! It was so crazy that when the band took a break, everyone slowly walked off the dance floor in a confused daze and my boss just came…See More

Ariana replied to Jill's discussion Share one small but very special, unique trait or memory about your late spouse. Something to make you and the rest of us smile.
"Oh Gosh, There's so much about him that was so unique or special. But the one thing that came to me, and it came to me a few weeks ago...and it was also something I spoke with his younger sister about a few days ago, was his uncanny way of…"

"Thank you. It was a tough morning but the day grew easier. Released balloons, rallied a bunch of friends and family to post on his page on FB and bought the Christmas tree he was hoping to get. Spent the day with his baby brother and my mother."

I hope you all enjoyed today. I was afraid today was going to be a tough day but instead it turned out to be a great day. Spent it with my brother and his family.



I think today is a tiny glimmer of hope that I am on my way to being ok. Of course I still have a few more hurdles ahead-Felix's birthday is on Monday. Christmas. My birthday, which is also New Year's Eve...but I hope to keep this positive thinking and feelings to help me through those days.



Late last night, I… Continue

Feeling Sick

Today I planned on installing this virtual storage space on my computer Felix's brother sent to me so I can share pictures with him, his mom and sister. So before I did any installing, I loaded up his computer for the first time since I had to round up photos for Felix's wake. I started looking through our files and seeing his smiling face, our smiling faces, broke my heart all over again. Then I found a couple of sound files, one which he says "I love you Baby!"

So tonight I was actually going to venture out to a Halloween party...my close friend invited me out, and even convinced me to buy a costume a few weeks ago (Wonder Woman, she said that is what I am :)) but this noreaster came and just ruined our plans. It's so nasty out. I stepped out this afternoon for a quick lunch and wound up having to buy snow boots to make it back home. So my original $5 lunch cost me $58 LOL. Oh well. So the plans for tonight, Dogs 101 on Animal Planet, visiting WV…
