Well, we had a great weekend. Friday night we both did our own things. I had a girls night, the three of us saw Fireproof (great movie, totally recommend it) and then grabbed a bite at Los Cobos (yummy!). While Rusty went to the casino with his dad. I liked it because he actually won some money!
Saturday we had lunch with friends and I did some shopping with the girls while the men watched sports and did "manly" things. Then we went to a wedding reception. It was a really nice reception with some GREAT bbq. I'm so excited for them.
Monday was a very emotional day for me. I cleaned the house but I would have moments where I would just break down. It is so hard to go about my daily activities and not have Abigayl here. I find myself trying to clean quietly so that I don't wake her. Then it hits me all over again that she's not here. It tears my heart out every time.
Last night we went to a "getting through the holidays" grief workshop. This probably won't sound right but, it was really nice to connect with others that are going through similar emotions. I actually met a woman who lost her 2 yr old in September. Her daughter had heart failure and was going through her 3rd open heart surgery. She is also a stay-at-home mom, going through the same emptiness that I am. It is a strange thing to make friends through such a painful tragedy. Rusty and I both feel we got a lot out of the meeting.
