I should be at the gym right now, but I would rather go back to bed. Guess I should do my hair and go.

Lilly has her first open play for soccer tonight. It's not an official practice, but more like a 'meet your potential teammates.' I think most of the girls make a team, but not all of the girls make it through summer training. Quite a few quit last year before the season started. Lilly might make varsity this year, but she doesn't really want to. She likes the JV coach better then the V coach.

Abby asked me if there was TV in heaven. Why? She said, "dad's missing all of his favorite shows."

First Jen, you cracked me up! Greg was running around in is towel this morning screaming at the top of his lungs "guess what day it is? Woot woot!" waking everyone up. I'm surprised the girls didn't go after him with a bat LOL. Of course I was up since 6:30 listening to Bianca's phone buzzing every two seconds with texts from her friend asking what Divergent people they were going to dress as.... I seriously want to scream!

I have lots of house chores to do and dance lessons to cart children to. I also need to go to the store for a few necessities.

It's sad but also so sweet that Abby thinks of her daddy in the most "every day" things. Those are memories that won't fade as she grows. Hugs.

We normally cuddle for a bit when she gets home from school and talk about her day. I ended up crying yesterday because we started talking about Phil. I can't even remember what we were talking about now. She definitely talks about him the most. She mentioned this morning how he always used to give her kisses on her neck to tickle her while she was eating her breakfast before school. It is the every day/routine memories with him that she mentions.

For the first few weeks after he passed she would tell me every night when she went to bed that she wanted daddy to tuck her in and give her kisses. Now she looks at his picture, walks to her window, looks up at the stars (to find the brightest one because that's him she says), and says "goodnight daddy, I love you."

oh Jen, those stories are priceless and so sad but sweet! A hug just isn't enough to give you - but all I can do from here


I need to tackle the mountain of laundry & the dirty (hairy) floors I've been ignoring. It's nice and sunny, but cold and windy out today. Meds to pick up at the pharmacy sometime & bowling tonight.

Wonder what's for dinner? Hmmm

I went back to bed this morning, I didn't sleep well last night. My stupid cat thinks it's fun to wake me in the night to pet him I have been catching up online and am watching some things I recorded last night.

I will pick up Emma from track practice at 5 then head to church for services this evening.

Jen - your stories about your daughter make me cry, but it so good for her because they will help her remember what was really important about him for her.

We hosted Passover dinner the past 2 evenings, so I have spent the past 4 days cleaning and then cooking. Today, I am resting, as scrapping a little. We woke up to a bit of snow this morning which hopefully didn't hurt the garden. The boys are on Spring break so we will probably venture out to the library at some point and if it gets warmer, I will run this evening while they both go to track.

oh Jen, I just want to give you and your precious little girl a big hug!!

Got the kids off to school, waiting for my friend so we can go on our run, helping in the kindie room today and maybe a bit of cleaning later.

I still have heartburn - so annoying! It is light but I know it will get worse if I eat. This starvation diet is the pits

Jen. I hope you're making a note of all these little things to scrap then when you're feeling ready (and have time) because those every-day things are the most important aid to the memories.

After the funeral on Monday we were all talking about the little every-day things we remembered about all the mutual family members who have passed away. We laughed a lot and cried a little. Different people remembered different things. Sharing them with other people who remember the person is priceless.

Last week Camy and Abby were getting ready for school in their bathroom. I was doing Abby's hair and she was talking about how she was going to be a sahm when she got married. Then she said, "but my husband won't die." Camy said, "you can't say that to mom!" I told Camy that Abby can say whatever she is thinking. It won't hurt my feelings. I want to know what they're thinking no matter what it is.

It's hard. Not only do I have to go through normal parenting issues, but this too (and by myself.) Obviously I don't share everything. We go through something like this almost on a daily basis. That would be a downer reading that every day. Even for me to type it all out.

I truly can only imagine how hard it all is. As long as it feels cathartic for you, I want you to feel like you can share as much as you want with us. It doesn't feel like a downer to me. I'm proud and humbled to be a part of what each of us goes through, good or bad, happy or sad. Lending an ear/eye in this case feels important and is good for my soul.

Jen. I know it's not easy, but you amaze me with the love & support you give to your girls, and the strength you have to power through the tough stuff.

That is sad and sweet, Jen.
I don't think it's a downer either. I like to think we're helping you through the rough times by sharing with us.

Lilly and Camy have opened up to me, but it's not daily like with Abby. Camy probably talks about Phil the least. She holds it in and then she's explosive when she finally lets things out. Lilly is the cynic. I'm not sure which is worse.

Lilly will say things like, "I feel bad for Abby. She still needs dad. I'm older, I don't." or "You and dad had the ideal marriage. I never thought WE would be a broken family." and "I might as well do whatever I want because we have bad genes anyway. I'm going to get cancer or ALS and die young."

I've already talked about how all three of them are germophobes. It's getting worse. "My hand touched my pants, is it ok to eat my pretzels or should I go wash my hands?" No matter how many times I tell them that you can't catch what MeMaw or daddy had. Hopefully it will get better over time.

I wanted to give us time to heal as a family, but I'm open to grief counseling this summer if I feel that we need to go.

It does help to share.

aw, that's really rough. And it sounds like Lilly is scared that it is going to happen to her but saying it in a 'tough girl' sort of way.

Being a germophobe can actually make people sicker.
