July 2, 2018

This time last year my dad was recovering from a whipple surgery. This year, same as last, it was the beginning of “dead period” and coach had his three weeks of fully quiet downtime.

My dad service was the weekend before last and it was wonderful. I loved spending time with all of our New Jersey and Canadian family. I hated the circumstances, but we made the best of it. There were at least 250+ people attending dad’s memorial. He touched a lot of lives. Dad was, and remains, larger than life. We all knew that, it was apparent that day.

I’m getting back into my routines. Little bit of gardening, catching up on paperwork, digging into books, and prepping for a small vacation. I’m a little on edge, I have moments of being emotionally volatile. I’m still not quite getting enough sleep. I’ve accepted that I will never quite be 100% since a piece will always be missing.

I’m grateful for the people in my life who understand, I’m equally as grateful for those who are attempting to get it. I was talking with a friend who lost her mom2 years ago and we came to the conclusion that we got membership to a really bad club that we didn’t ask to join.

Somehow it is July. Football season starts with our first game on August 17th. Coach starts his masters program in January. I’m trying to remain optimistic about my business in an increasingly worrisome economy. I’m keeping my head up, moving forward because I have to to keep my sanity. Next week I will be among trees and at the beach. Cannot wait.
