Archive for April, 2011

It isn’t that I’m arguing, nor do I necessarily disagree that maybe some changes are needed, but in the past month these plans have been “final” five freakin’ times.  I don’t want to mull over or discuss or ruminate on the issues.  I’m totally burnt out on the issues.  I want decisions made so I can make the changes and then the plans will be done.  For real. For good.  Until someone else changes their mind about something.

April in the D

Last Friday was Opening Day and once again Brad and I took the day off of work and spent the whole day downtown. Despite the fact that it was freezing and rained for much of the morning, lots of fun was had by all. In a new development, my phone wouldn’t work inside Comerica Park, so I missed out on seeing some people, but got to hang out with our friends Marc and Trish, saw Scott and a bunch of Phi Taus for like 5 minutes and then crashed Yeimy’s work party. But apparently 9:30pm is our Opening Day limit; for the third year in a row we were back home by 10pm. Because Michigan has wonderfully crazy weather, after spending Friday wearing 2 shirts, a sweatshirt, a fleece jacket, my rain jacket, a scarf and mittens and still being cold, at the game on Sunday I was melting in a t-shirt and jeans.

I am excited for the nice weather – I’ve already spent two evenings out mucking around in the gardens, cleaning up and getting a jump on the weeds. I do think that this year I may try to start a small vegetable garden.

I really want to write something about Trisha, but don’t know what.  It was hard to say good-bye to a sister, but I know it was so much harder for others who were closer to her than I was.  I will always remember her as smiling, laughing, a little irreverent, with a huge heart.  I was wowed by her strength, to be a foster mother, and I truly hope that the boys will always know how much she loved them.

Looking from the outside in, depression is so hard to understand, it really does change the way your mind works.  I look back on my experience with depression, and I can’t grasp now how hopeless I felt then.  It breaks my heat to think how Trisha must have been feeling, to choose this as her way out of pain.

I am glad I got to go to the visitation on Sunday.  I was dreading it, but despite how incredibly sad it was, I was happy to be there with my sisters.  I love you guys so much and feel so blessed to have you in my life.
