How is everyone doing today? I know that holidays are often very difficult, and for me, I try to put on a happy face, but then the day after I crash hard. I just wanted to check on you all and see how you are all doing.
I'm not too bad right now; I missed my mom at Easter, she would have loved that I made Easter bread for the first time. I think she would have liked that I'm trying to carry on with her traditional big family dinners-I think she would be proud. It sure sucks not having her here
It didn't hit me as hard this year as it did last. I'm sure that next month and Memorial Day will be a different story though. It was Dad's favorite holiday and I will be spending the night before and most of that day at his house. I have very mixed emotions about it all.
I thought I was handling this past weekend fine. Saturday would have been my Dad's birthday, and it was my first time going back home since I was there for his death/funeral/etc. It was sad, but I thought I was doing really well. Until today. Today was just a horrible, awful day. I don't know if it is missing my Dad, the continued struggle with infertility, a combination of both...everything is just a mixed up mess of emotion and I'm not sure where to start. At least the day is almost over, and hopefully tomorrow will be better!
