Today it is rainy which has served to keep visitors to a minimum except for Hadija who came over at 7am and decided to watch me do Tae-Bo for a while since it was just too bizarre to miss.
It is pretty quiet here so far this morning and I can actually THINK, a rare moment. And I have decided today I miss my family. Like really miss them. Not in a sad weepy sorta way but just really wish we could be with them all even for a day; hear the familiar laughs, listen to the same old stories, eat comfort food, and share.
Happy 60th Birthday to my Dad! I called him and he actually picked up the phone yesterday!! I told him I missed him and loved him and that if he was here he would be like ancient 🙂 I listened to his birthday dinner plans and his football hopes for the Illini and then we said goodbye. Hearing his voice made me remember there is this whole other reality that we are missing out on.
Yep, today I really miss our family.
