Just in case you've missed her... here's a snuggly pic of Stitch the bunny!
Today was a rough doctor's visit at the hospital, so I'm on strict orders to ice ice ice all day. (I'll spare you all the gory details of what happened. ) The best part of all this is having more dedicated time to snuggling up with this cutie! I mean, come on!!! Look at this fluffy face! #bestshopmascotever
Tomorrow should be better. I have another early doctor appointment, and I'm hoping I'll be feeling good enough afterwards to be able to prop up at my desk and work on some fall & Halloween goodies!
This. Is. It.
The last time.
The last time I spent a secret moment you. I felt a little scandalous taking this - you would have laughed. Now I'm glad I did. Pictures of us? There were few over the last 6 years. But. I have this.
You had the most amazing sense of humor. The most generous spirit. The most wide-open, loving heart. You loved everyone. And we're so talented. This is the last time I whispered to you. Told you how much I loved you. Begged that you would miraculously open your eyes and heal, while at the same time telling you how I understood why you had to go.
This moment is one of my most cherished
memories. All at the same time.
A Contradiction, at its finest.
I can't believe it's been 365 days since you were with us, laughing, singing, impersonating some goofy person or another.
I think of all the things I'll miss about watching you come into your own: celebrations, births, love. Children who will never come to be, laughs never laughed, tears never cried. I think of it all, the if-only's, the what-if's. My word! How I would change things if I could.
I feel you with me, and want more... always more. I wish I had soaked up more... moments together, laughs, YOU.
Watching your light slowly burn out 365 days ago was both the greatest heartbreak and PRIVILEGE... all at the same time.
Love you, sister... miss you.
You know, it never ceases to amaze me what can be done in 21 days!
You have the power to put on 7 pounds, but you also have the power to lose 7 pounds.
You have the ability to be happier, or you have the ability to be sadder.
The thing is, as I have learned these last 21 days, the time will pass no matter what. You have the choice to either make it a productive 21 days, or to make it one where you sit on the couch, and are kicking yourself for not doing anything the last 21 days.
I'm ashamed to say, these last 21 days, I did the latter. But, no more! I have a SpooktABular group to help me out and I WILL have these abs back for Halloween!
And I'm still donating money to #hurricanerelief on behalf of everyone that joins me :)
So, how will you spend these next 21 days? #ThrowbackThursday#ReadyToShiftAgain
And there it is! I'm thrilled with the way this turned out! Seriously quick and easy project. I'm definitely keeping this in my memory bank under "Quick, I need a gift to bring!" I probably use that category more than I'd like to admit...
I'm meeting with my boss tomorrow evening, I wanted to sit down and explain what I needed to stay and work, but also have what I needed to make ends meet
I need to be able to work from home, AND decide my own hours, which would vary day-to-day
I need to have 25% off any services from the organization AND if I found other employees we would share a higher percentage of what they / I brought in together
I need them to send me monthly gifts for doing my job, quarterly bonuses, AND they need to take me on vacation, to hot, beautiful places Finally,
I needed to be able to work for as long as I want, and also hold employment with other business and / or leave if I ever felt it was no longer for me Have you hung with me this far If so I'm sure you think I'm crazy, no traditional organization or boss would ever agree to such ridiculous terms for an employee
But my boss will, my organization will
I'm meeting my "boss" aka the President of this wild organization tomorrow evening in Halifax .. like what
It was a risk I took, completely unsure what was awaiting me, but I'm sure glad I fearlessly got in on this gig, because it's literally like no other
