Doin it the way my family would have!
I went on a walk this morning/afternoon and it was beautiful. The paths were covered in a carpet of leaves. Everything was beautifully colored in the colors of fall. It was hard to turn around and come home because everything was so peaceful and nice to look at.
I did get out of the house. My friend and I went to a few stores in town and window shopped. We were being our silly selves and I embarrassed her a few times. Good times had by all, especially me!
I bought a cake mix, frosting and a bottle of wine. When I got home, I made dinner and started my cake. After the cake was in the oven and baking, I opened up my wine. After it was cooled, I frosted it and we all sang happy birthday to Oma.
Zilla doesn't really remember my mom, which is both a blessing and a curse. Sometimes he gets why she isn't here and sometimes he doesn't. He and Nae sang while looking up. That was really sweet and kind of made me tear up a touch.
I did talk to my dad and sister and they were keeping busy today, just like I was. Whether that's healthy or not, I'm unsure, but that's what we did. So, all in all it was a good day. It was a bittersweet day, but hopefully things will keep going well for the 3 of us.
