I’m not really sure why, but I’m cold today. No hot flashes to keep me warm (where are they when we actually need them?), and while it isn’t cold in the house, I feel chilled. Usually my heat vent in my bedroom is closed because I do get too warm, but not today. So here I sit in my pink Snuggie. Don’t laugh, it does keep me warm, along with this wonderful, hot cup of coffee on the desk. Those are paired with jeans, a sweater and my pink, Hello Kitty footie socks and Hello Kitty slippers. Admit it, you are insanely jealous!
This morning was a sleep in day, I made it to 8am and that was as late as I could manage. Considering it is 3.5 hours past my alarm for work days, it was fantastic! Coffee and mom time followed. Every morning that mom and I are both home and awake in the morning, is coffee time. We grab our cups and curl up in the arm chairs in our living room and talk. While my life is one giant, “this did not go as planned“, nothing could be better than having these years with her, on a daily basis, to laugh, share, and make memories. All too soon she will be gone, and thankfully I’ve been given a gift these past nearly 6 years, to be able to spend these final years of her life journey under the same roof.
We ran one errand today, heading to the grocery store to pick up about 3 items to make lime garlic chicken for dinner, though while we did get what we needed the plan changed first to walking tacos, then to steak burgers. We ended up buying $60+ of unplanned purchases, which included a scrumptious chocolate cake because when we found out it is National Chocolate Cake day today, well we didn’t want to miss celebrating. So, lunch included a plate full of baby-angels-in-the-mouth goodness. We were back in our arm chairs indulging in chocolate decadence and loving every minute!
