Etc.

Wow. Craziness.

The good news for me is that the 3rd time is the charm: the 24th was the 3rd anniversary of my mother's passing and I managed to make it to work.

Course, the last two years I "cheated" because it always fell on the weekend. Still, I'm a little proud of myself for not calling in "sick" that day (which was my first reaction when I woke up). Instead, I went skating and then to work thus proving to myself that life can and does go on.

...I couldn't get through 'You Raise Me Up' though... maybe next year. I couldn't help but think of how much fun mom and I would have had at Josh's Awake tour had she been alive. I had fun going with dad for sure (in some ways, maybe even more than I would have otherwise), but it was still rough. The Nampa ID concert was less than a mile from the cemetery where mom is buried... (BTW, thank you Josh for coming and for being amazing that night, I think Mom heard you!)

And so life goes on... except I think I'm coming down with something insidious: I've been guzzling water in RIDICULOUS amounts lately and I still seem to be gaining weight no matter how "saintly" I am. And since I'm still wearing jackets in 90+ degree heat, I'm scaring my coworkers... they sat me down at lunch and didn't leave until I had called and made a doctor's appointment. I'm thinking it's just me coming down from stress, but I will do as my friends asked and go. I'm feeling a little fatigued too... guess that means I need more sleep so tonight is a eat in, watch movies, and recover night.

Have a Joshin' one!
