5 Years

| 1 Comment

In the past 5 years (in no particular order):

I've performed on the Comedy Central stage in Los Angeles.
I've performed 7 wedding ceremonies.
Christopher and Katie moved to Africa.
I have completed 4 triathlons.
I had a major accident and recovered.
I've choreographed a number of shows.
I created a fun drinking podcast.
I started going back to church.
I've done a number of Blewt! projects.
One of my cats died.
We cleaned out the house in Vicksburg in a week and found home/places for all the animals. This is one of the hardest things I've ever lived through.
My grandmother died.
All of Mom's medical issues.
Christopher got his masters degree.
I got visable tattoos.
I worked through my issues about The Nutcracker, through a show, no less.
I started dancing again.
And so much more.

And Dad has been gone for all of them. I really miss him and wish I could talk to him and share these things with him. People always say that it gets easier the more time has past, but I don't know if I agree with them. I mean, we've made it work and we've kept moving forward, but it just makes the absence even more pronounced. And I get weepy every time I talk about him.

My dad was so cool.
He was so funny.
He was so positive.
He found the joy in everything.

I hope I can keep that memory alive.

Beautiful. But I can't help but wonder what Lucy, Ramona, and Sunset Sam look like today!
