twinkle lights.


i'm still feeling so sad over losing my friend.
going to work feels weird.
being at work feels weird.
my work family is in mourning.

today, i overheard our custodian learning of the news of wade's passing.
she kept saying, "no! no! NO!" out loud, over and over again.
i felt like throwing up.
the loss is still so fresh...

at home, my head and eyes are tired.
i have no energy at all.
but today i couldn't handle the mess any longer.

i scrubbed the kitchen for over an hour.
it feels good to have a clean sink again.
now if only i could find the bottom of the laundry pile...
one day at a time, right?

after i cleaned the kitchen, i got out the scrapbook paper and cut out some stars for the big kitchen window.


the kids helped me hang them up.
i decided we needed more twinkle lights.
"meanwhile, i'm putting on more twinkle lights."
name that movie.

they are definitely helping to cheer me up.
