Mixed Bag

Oh my - lots on my mind today! I couldn't think of any appropriate title other than "Mixed Bag," because none of it is very related except for by the fact that all of it has to do with my life, and I'm pretty positive I've used the title "Life" one to many times...

If you've noticed that I've been missing from the blog world the last few days it's because we took a trip up north for my Granny's funeral. Peter, Mo, and I traveled together and shared a hotel room to save money. Mom paid for the hotel room, but we were still trying to be smart :P

It was an emotional weekend. We got through it, I'm glad I was there, but it was hard. Now comes the process of moving forward. Moving forward is different from moving on. Moving on implies your leaving someone behind, and it's often a negative connotation. Moving forward...moving forward means taking everything that's come before, acknowledging and incorporating it where appropriate, and then taking the next steps in your life. At least that's what it means to me.

It still hurts.

I'm starting to slowly work towards my usual routine, and feeling more like myself. The last two months have been really hard (it was all so fast!) and I know there will still be hard days to come, but there is a feeling of closure in having the funeral over, and I'm trying to be disciplined about getting done what needs to be done.

My dear hubby installed windows 7 on my laptop (his name is Jack) today. I haven't gotten to play around with it as much as I'd like yet, but so far I like it. Mo says Jack will run faster with 7 than he did on Vista, so that alone makes me happy! I also like the changes I've noticed so far.

Random note: My hubby says my brains wouldn't be good to eat because they are probably tough and stringy since I use them so much. Isn't that sweet of him?

I've been experimenting with cooking more (I can't remember if I've mentioned that or not) and I'm having fun! I've made a stew from scratch, baked my first whole chicken (well, in like 10 years), and tomorrow night I'm going to branch out from cooking salmon when we have fish to cooking Dover Sole this time. I know, doesn't sound like a lot, but it's one of those little victories for me because it's been really hard to cook with all my health problems! I'm slowly getting stronger, and we're going to eat better because of it :)

Have you been watching the Olympics? Nothing has really stood out at me yet, but yesterday was the first chance I had to watch any, and I fell asleep with a migraine around 5. I have a feeling the stuff I wanted to see (figure skating) was on while I was asleep...
