It really is 2010 - at least that's what the calendar says.
Yesterday was the 4th of January. To celebrate Gary's freedom we went to IHOP, our favorite breakfast place. I ordered, what we always did - Kitchen Sink and coffee. It is an omelet with everything but the kitchen sink in it - and it is good) We used to order it from the senior menu (smaller portions, smaller price) - but it is not on there anymore. So we just ordered it regular. I had a coupon 2 for 1 - We were even sitting in the same booth we were normally sitting. All of the sudden, the tears came. Without looking at the clock I knew that it was 10:30 - the time they disconnected the machines 7 months ago. I KNOW that eventual it will get better (at least I hope so) I can already go longer periods without crying, and then sometimes, I can't find an end. I miss Gary so very much. Talking to him every night helps.
I am getting ready to open my Etsy store. I've been crocheting up a storm so I can have some inventory. I still have not made friends with my sewing machine - that's still on the agenda. Soon.
