I have a love/hate relationship with spring

Spring is beautiful. I love the green, the flowers blooming, the rainy days and the sunny days, the fresh breezes, etc. I hate the fact that it lasts for a few weeks and turns into summer. I hate summer.

But yesterday was a LOVELY spring day. I love the grey skies and the green of everything else. They grey makes the greens look greener, I think. Today is looking gorgeous as well, and since it was cool yesterday I’m hopeful that — even though it’s sunny today — it won’t be too warm.

Still in bed, but working on getting up. Katie came over yesterday (after we spent the afternoon at the Frist) and bought a bottle of vodka. I didn’t get too sloshed and feel fine this morning, but I did sleep until 9:30….

Tonight we’re supposed to go to Matt’s friend’s house for dinner. They were going to come here, but can’t leave their dog alone because he, somehow, lost a couple of inches off of his tail. The silly dog. So I’m supposed to come up with an entree to take over there … and we’re going to teach them how to play Settlers of Catan. Matt wants to stay for Scattergories as well but I plan on reminding him that I have to work tomorrow morning. I don’t know why he always plans stuff on nights that I can’t stay up late. It’s annoying.

But I’m going to try not to be stressed by the looming social interaction. Instead, I’m going to go do some laundry and enjoy the lovely day. So.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

  1. That sounds like fun! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it after you’re there. I love playing games…except simpson’s scene it. Matt is just too good at that one.
