Woke up feeling that a mini vacation is desperately needed. Then saw two separate friends who I haven’t seen or spoken to since Nicks accident. They each said to me they could tell we needed a break and change of scenery. I think one of them said I needed to spark it up a little, referring to life in general. This is not coincidence, but confirmation that we should take a weekend away soon. Very soon.
With less than 40 hours until we get to pick up Nicks legs, the anticipation is high. We keep giggling about how familiar this feeling is. In August we counted down the hours and days leading up to Nicks last back surgery. And look how long it’s been since those days? Seems an entirely different lifetime ago. And this simple realization helps get us past the difficult days. I find peace knowing that one day we will look back and vaguely remember this strange time when we were foaming at the mouth just to get our hands on Nicks legs.
It’s Dans birthday today, so we had a delicious dinner at Moms house. The whole family was there laughing and enjoying each others company. Dan got the funniest gift. It’s a sexy swimsuit calendar full of all the San Diego Chargers girls. When he opened it up we realized there was actually no calendar, only a list of numbers down the side of each month. Perfect! Who needs to know what day it is when you have the Chargers girls! Happy Birthday Dan! We are so blessed to have you living with us. You’re a great housemate, friend and brother. We love you and hope you enjoy living with us as much as we enjoy having you with us.
