Last week

Well, I survived my first birthday without my mom. What an emotional week it was. Mom always called me first thing in the morning on my birthday so she and dad could sing happy birthday to me. Who knew how much I'd miss that.... Dad called later and said he wanted to call that morning but knew he could never get through it and didn't want to ruin my day. He didn't realize my day was already ruined. I would have preferred to stay in bed all day but unfortunately I have too many "duties" for that to happen. It's probably for the best. I needed the distraction of work. I don't know why but I think it just really hit me last week that she's really gone.

I did get many birthday wishes from all many friends and for that, I'm thankful. I even had one dear friend (who knew my mom always called and sang to me) call me later that night and had her entire family on the phone singing to me. Too sweet and funny... even her hubby sang along!

My dad came up to visit the next day and spent the week-end with us. The boys and I love when he visits. He was able to go to all three boys' basketball games, which he really enjoys and they love having him there.
Speaking of basketball, Reed wanted me to mention that his team is STILL undefeated. 12-0! : )
