Widow in the Snow


Snow pretty much sucks. As a widow, I hate it. It reminds me that I am alone. I don't have HeeJun anymore to make the decision if it's okay to drive. I don't have him anymore to go pick up the much needed White Chocolate Mocha. I don't have him anymore to cuddle up on the couch and watch movies with on snow days.
I felt really trapped and lonely yesterday. I didn't want to venture out.
I didn't want to, but I did. I took the dogs for a walk. I watched the neighborhood kids sled down the hill.
Just that one step out the door, gave me a boost in self confidence and a push out of the self pity party and into the ROCK BAND party. I have to admit, if you want to get out of a funk, play a little Rock Band with my incredible neighbors!
I even ventured out today to get a Mocha all by myself. I threw my hand in the arm and performed a little fist pumping action once I got to the Starbucks!

I agree that not having someone to lean on in times like these sucks. I don't feel like I can say that though ever because most people roll their eyes and want me to suck it up...they're all married. They've forgotten.

Lastly, good for you! High five on trekking out.

Glad Rock Band, Apples to Apples, Catch Phrase, and really bad food helped :) Also, kicking your butt in Catch Phrase was icing on the cake. Come over any time!
