I Made It Through Another Friday
Slept a little better last night but still had a few strange dreams. Don't remember any of them though. Got up around 7:15 am and had breakfast and then drove over to Central Park in Saugus and did a 1.5 mile walk. Came home and was out filling my birdbath and watering my plants and I noticed that the house behind me was having new flooring installed. Just then I flashed back to Ben and me sitting on the patio watching DVDs the day our new carpet was installed last year and the memory made me cry. Seems like “everything” makes me think of Ben and causes me to cry these days. I guess this is the “depression” stage of grief. I put a boneless chicken breast in my crock pot this morning and later I'll add a packet of “Grandma's Noodles” that I bought at the store the other day. When I was a little kid, my mom used to put chicken in a pot on the stove and then she would get out her Bisquick and make home made egg noodles. It was always one of my favorite “comfort foods”. The “Grandma's Noodles” are a pretty close second to those noodles my mom made. Had lunch and watched The Young & the Restless then I watched a free On Demand movie called “Final Days Of Planet Earth”. It was a strange movie about huge insects from outer space coming back to earth on a shuttle and taking over earth by using humans as their food source. But it kept my mind occupied. After the movie I went out to get my mail and noticed that it is humid outside. Now I face another long, lonely weekend.
