One full day of no job is now complete. Today, I did all my laundry, cleaned the house, made breakfast and lunch ALL BEFORE NOON…Oh how PROUD Mark would be of me…he always said that if you sleep the morning away, you’ve wasted the day…DAMN I’m good.
Then the afternoon consisted of binge-watching This Is Us, and making dinner for the hubby. Because I figured it was OK to relax for at least a half-day…right? Now, I’m only one episode away of finishing the first season…pretty productive day!
Another thing that happened today…? We lost someone very special to Greg’s (and my NEW) family. Greg’s Grandmother (aka “Shorty”) passed away today after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She used to live on Cape Cod with her husband, “Buppa”…and they both moved into an assisted living facility in Michigan last summer, and be a bit closer to the other members of the family.
The picture above is from Buppa’s 100th Birthday Celebration. Held on Cape Cod in February 2016, we were lucky enough to see them both one last time before they moved out to Michigan, and I’m thankful that Greg had that opportunity (like the rest of the family) to see them both.
I know this post is Short(y)….and SWEET…but it’s oh-so-poetic to the kind of woman she was. AND if my decision yesterday to quit my job wasn’t solidified by today’s news that life is too short to waste it being unhappy…then I don’t know what to think. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from my family and friends – I didn’t expect any of this, and am INSANELY humbled by all of it. I love you all so much.
Thank you for everything…you all mean the world to me…
And Shorty…you will be tremendously missed. <3
