262 Day Countdown

Well my bloggy friends, it's been a crazy couple of weeks since I was last on here.

Two Fridays ago, B and I headed down the pier and said our final goodbyes to J. We had a crazy couple of days leading up to that trying to get all the final touches completed and squeeze in as much family time as we could. It was very, very sad. I have to admit that I got misty and was a little at a loss of what to do once we got home. It felt like there was this giant hole missing in the house. No matter where we looked, something reminded us of what wasn't there anymore. The comic book boxes in the corner, running shoes by the door, just everything seemed so empty. Even our pets knew something was up and were a little bit down all weekend.

So, to drag ourselves out of the dulldrums, B and I hopped on a plane to Orlando, FL to take a trip to Disney (had originally been planned as a family trip). We met my parents there and took 5 days to relax and escape our sadness. We had a great trip, B had a blast and it was nice to spend time with just my parents.

Then on Sunday, we began our journey back. When we got back to the house, the same gapping hole was still there. B and I did all of our errands and got home to just relax before I had to head back to work today. While I said downstairs watching TV last night, I looked at a calender and realized the significant amount of time that was streched out in front of me. I resolved that B and I weren't going to mope (much) and plan some fun adventures to fill our time. First up, a trip to the comic book store and the zoo this weekend and getting our fall flowers planted this weekend.

Plus, we have an interesting development which I should know more about tomorrow...more on that later!
