So today should have been my dad’s 79th birthday. I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about my dad but it has crossed my mind a few times today. In addition to missing my dad I am also dealing with being alone on a day that is designed for couples. I have to say that my weekend has been pretty good though. I spent Friday having a nice dinner with my kids and then doing some shopping. Yesterday my kids and I cleaned part of the house and then watched the “Minions” last night. Then after the movie my kids made fun of me while I attempted to play a game called Silent Hill. It was so much fun having my kids piled on my bed trying to help me play a video game. I have to say that I am pretty terrible at video games but I do enjoy trying. It is so funny how I could be totally dreading the weekend and then end up really enjoying my kids. They have both been so interested in other things lately that it has been awhile since they hung out with me. I really enjoy spending time with them. I am so incredibly lucky to have them. I honestly don’t think I would even mind being single if my kids were home all the time. I go to Spain in less than a month so I need to start focsing on making myself feel as good as possible. I have got to start eating healthy so that I will feel better by the time I leave for Spain. Life is short and I plan to make the most of it with or without a man!!!
