I went to see the new Harry Potter movie in IMAX. You would've loved that. I was with the kids, and I smuggled in a bottle of wine. You would have loved that, too. We never did get around to me making you watch Eurotrip. Or The Little Mermaid. I mean, seriously, how could you have literally lived your entire life and not seen The Little Mermaid. The new Doctor Who Christmas Special will be in the theatres. The new Star Wars is coming out soon, too. I'm sorry you won't be with me. I'm sorry you can't go with me to Studio Movie Grill, and we can order ALL of the special Star Wars drinks again, try them all, announce that they're crap and way overpriced, and I'll go back to drinking Margaritas because it's Monday.

You didn't have to live to see Trump elected, so I suppose that's something. And Gene Wilder, Leonard Cohen, and Kenny Baker were always alive for you, too.

I have to move soon, so I'm skipping my birthday trip to Disneyland and not decorating for Christmas. I suppose that's really for the best. I honestly don't know what I'd do for Christmas without you, and Disneyland for my birthday by myself would just be depressing after we loved it so much last year. So being in the middle of moving is just as well.

I'm trying to buy a house. Fingers are crossed. I'm painting rooms the colours that I want when I do. The main bathroom will have bats painted on the walls, and the kitchen will be red and grey, and the guest room will be purple, and my bathroom will be TARDIS blue. And if there's an actual foyer, I'm using the foyer wallpaper from the Haunted Mansion like I always said I would. I'd kinda like light grey for the rest of the house, but we'll see.

I've been largely trying to stay busy and do things that will make me happy, which I know you'd approve of. I usually skip breakfast, though, which I know you wouldn't. I found the other Aerogarden. Both are doing well. The one had just begun to sprout when you saw the last pictures. The mint is out of control, and the lemon mint is rather similar. I've sprouted off one of the mint plants, and I'm going to probably transplant the lemon mint.

I skipped Restaurant Week. I didn't want to go by myself. I haven't been to Taco Tuesday in forever. But I did go on Talk Like A Pirate Day and get the free Krispy Kreme donuts. I skimmed through your FB page and realized just how much we used to go out. I mostly eat at home now, but I eat well.

There are some neat new Disney pins out. I moved all your pins on to the board. Even the ones that were on your hat. I think I may still occasionally get you a few and put them on the board for you.

I want to tell you every thing that happened every second. And I don't want to tell you any of it; I'd rather just tell you that I love you, which is the only important thing. I love you. I miss you. It's lonely here without you. But I'm trying.

I could have written this to my husband almost exactly as you. I'll be watching tv and see something that would totally captivate him and I'll say aloud, "Did you see that, Punkin?"

I still talk to an empty house like he's here. You mentioned that your love had never seen the Little Mermaid. I still can't understand how my John had never seen Monsters Inc. I even had it saved to the DVR for him to watch. Today I deleted it. I know he'll never watch it.

I could have written much of the same thing for my husband, who passed two weeks ago. I wrote on my own blog about Rogue One, and how he would miss it, and how I'm going to see the new Harry Potter tomorrow. Thank you. I'm not alone.
