My father died March 4, peacefully in his sleep and surrounded by his loved ones. We had a beautiful memorial service for him one week ago, with 150 family and friends in attendance. It still seems so strange that on January 4 he seemed fine, and now 2 months later he’s gone.
As you can imagine, the past month has been extremely stressful. I’m such a regimented person and nothing lately has been routine. I went back to work this week but I’m completely exhausted. I look awful, I feel awful, and I haven’t seen my trainer in 4 weeks. Today I caught up on neglected chores around the house, paid bills, bought groceries, and tried to rest as much as possible.
I’m in detox mode now. My diet is strictly fruits, veggies, beans, and nuts as I’ve got to get my stomach issues back under control. I’m going to go for a long walk before sunset and try to get 7 hours of sleep tonight.
Chase is coming for Sunday dinner tomorrow and I will be trying out some new recipes on him. I’m ready to get back to a normal life as quickly as I can, which definitely includes cooking and blogging!
Thanks to all of you who prayed and sent good thoughts for my family. I will catch up on all of your posts as fast as I can.
