This morning I woke up and realized this is what my life will be like until October. I can take it day by day … but it’s going to last like this until at least October (maybe longer). Ugh. I need to forget about that and continue to focus on day by day. I will get to see him again in 9 weeks, and then when he’s in a-school, we can talk on the phone, and I can visit him.
One hard thing about staying behind is all the reminders of him. There’s the big stuff – photographs, all his books, the empty other half of the bed – but then there are the little daily things that make it seem like he should be here – his set of keys, his mp3 player, his soap and shampoo in the shower, CDs still in the stereo in his car.
In other news, my friends and I had a party last night to raise money for our Relay For Life team (to raise money for the American Cancer Society). We raised over $200! Not bad considering we started planning this party last Tuesday.
