Beginning of October :(

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

It's that time of year again for my mood to go south. I don't like shorter days and colder weather. Like other mammals, I want to add extra weight and hibernate.

Mom's birthday is Friday. She would have been 89. It's been three years and I will still dial her old phone number just because. Helena, who was named after her, will do or say something hilarious and I want to share it with Mom. She always laughed so hard.

Dad will be gone 33 years on November 10. I can't believe so much time has passed. I miss our conversations. I miss just being with him, reading the paper, or watching sports. We didn't always have to talk. He is my best friend

Every year, I know it's coming. Every year, I say I will find something to do to distract myself. Every year I struggle.
