Today it's been exactly 10 months since you died. :(
On November 17th...we went to the ASPCA and then The Humane Society looking for a dog. Katelyn found one at The Humane Society...a red nose chihuahua named "Buster". Not quite what I expected...but a very sweet dog nonetheless. Thank you for leading us to him. He adds a little too much work to my day...but I still like having a dog that you helped us find. ♥
November 17th was also Survivor's Day. And no offense to you...but it was kind of nice to have a day just for us!!
November 19th I went to the Support Group by myself. There weren't that many people there...and I really missed Charlotte...but it was kind of nice nonetheless.
Then of course came Thanksgiving. I made Thanksgiving dinner this year!! Can you believe that? I had to get some advice from Mom on how to do the turkey. But I made it all myself...and miracle of miracles got no complaints!!!
It was a tough weekend after that though. :( Remembering the last time I saw you. It was VERY painful. I got through it with some help from a few of my friends...but it was tough.
Not long after that came your birthday. I threw you a little party. Two parties actually. One online...and one at my house. Both went well.
Mom and Dad came over for dinner. I had rotisserie chicken, green bean casserole, mash potatoes and gravy, brownies with just a little frosting, and chocolate marshmellow ice cream. I made everything for dinner except that Mom brought stuffing.
I said the prayer before we ate...all about you of course.
And I lit one candle on your cake...and we sang you Happy Birthday. Boy was that weird and awkward since there was no one to give the cake to for that. :(
I know Mom really liked the party...I got a really nice email from her the next day.
Then just yesterday it was Worldwide Candle Lighting for the Compassionate Friends. I got to write in their Remembrance Book. Mom did too actually. I lit an online candle for you all day. And from 7:00 to 8:00 I lit two actual candles.
And that's what I've been up to this past month. What about you? :)
your big sister,
