Gifts

So this is going to be a bit of an odd one I think.  So I am coming up on my 25th anniversary, and I was walking with a friend through the mall.  She roamed off to buy chocolate which didn't surprise me at all :D.  I roamed over to the Lego store.  Now I hear some of you giggling, I know, weird right? Anyway, I walked in and sitting there on the self was a 50th anniversary Apollo Lander with a Lego mission patch.  I tried to turn around and walk out, and I couldn't, I tried not to do it, but…

Anniversary Season.

All of the big anniversaries with Arlene fall between her birthday, May 7th and July 6th. Early June is a killer for me, June 2nd is when she was found unresponsive in her room in the rehab, heart attack and stroke, and she passed on June 10th, yesterday was 4 years. This year, the "season" hit me harder I think than all of the other years, to the point where I was getting physically ill, nerves, stomach and digestive problems. Dammit I'm in year five, this shouldn't be hitting me like this…

Interest

So 19 months tomorrow and I am starting to come to the realization that I am not interested in the things I 'should' be doing but I am interested again.  I went through a relationship recently which was supposed to be friends and I tried to keep inside that line but my mind slipped well beyond that and when I let the emotion of that out, I scared off my friend and lost a really good friend.  It happens, the emotion of two people who lost someone very close to them colliding together clearly…

Obsessing

Sometimes I find myself reliving the past, obsessing over an event or conversation, anything and everything from those last hours in hospice to a vague memory of our very first date and like the lyrics below "I can't get myself to go away".

I'm sorry 'bout the attitude

I need to give when I'm with you

But no one else would take this shit from me

And I'm so

Terrified of no one else but me

I'm here all the time

I won't go away

It's me,…

In a holding pattern

Today was my birthday. It was unusually cold for the 4th of June with wild winds and heavy rain. I anticipated a nothing doing sort of day but decided to go and have coffee with the Muffin Break gang (mostly six to eight older folks) as I usually do and my daughter came and found me there. She said she had come to take me out to lunch which was lovely. She had checked my home and church first so third time lucky. She wanted her coming down to be a surprise and it was.

Tonight…
