F as in Friday

Well, it's Friday, and I have survived the week. I use the word survived because I feel as though I'm not going to make it through every day. As the week passes the days get longer, how weird is that. I used to jump for joy for TGIF, and now I'm dragging my feet through quicksand.
All in all, I would have to say that I am getting by just fine. I have my sad days, like today. Wednesday was two weeks (already) since my Daddy passed away. I have trouble knowing what day is what. People around me have to remind me ten times that today is Friday.
The family is all okay. Momma is doing as well as she can be. I've been staying with her, which I find comforting to myself, but also painful and heartbreaking to see her heart literally breaking in front of me and there is nothing more I can do but just hold her and hug her and tell her how much I love her.
Trying to get kids back on school schedule, dinners prepared, laundry and general cleaning around my house has been difficult. I can't even tell you how thankful I am for my husband to be helping and giving 190% to everything, even after an entire day of work. I'm so grateful, and so proud that our family is pulling together during this difficult time.

I thought today I would try blog some 'Fill In The Blank Friday'... trying to get me feeling normal and out of the funk. So, here goes.
1.   True happiness is       knowing love, and knowing Gods love.

2.  The most surreal moment of my life was   when my Daddy passed away. The entire experience from his shell to his beautiful funeral to burying him, it's hard for me to grasp that I just went through all that.

3.  My favorite texture is       soft and fluffy .

4.  My signature color is     pink. I have to say pink. I love wearing it, it's just so girly, and I am really girly.

5.  My signature style is     yikes, I don't think I have one. I like comfy clothes, I'm usually a jeans and top girl, dresses are fun too (I'm wearing one today) but Shoes... always Shoes with me. Yum.

6.  If I could choose one store to spend my life savings at, it would be       oh goodness, I want to say DSW because of their shoe heaven, but I would say Macys. They have everything (including designers) and their shoe dept is nothing to joke about .

7.  My best thing about autumn is      baking, probably. Chocolate-covered pretzel sticks, candied apples, apple pie, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, roasted fall vegetables, white chili, butternut squash soup, popcorn balls, lol. I'm hungry now!

Have a lovely weekend, if I don't talk to ya before then!

Soon the quicksand will let go of it's hold on you. Keep going, it gets better. I've not lost a parent but I have lost very close and dear family members and though you will always be able to access these feelings and moments as if they were yesterday the space between opens up more room for you to breathe and go on. Thinking of you still and wishing you well.
