On August 7th, it will be 5 years since my Dad passed away. When his wife decided to sell their house, she held a rummage sale and hired people to run it so she didn’t have to be there. J and I decided to go and check it out. I found this cup there:
We bought him this coffee cup one year for either his Birthday or Father’s Day, I can’t remember which. I just remember I was pretty darn young when we got it for him. I love having this cup and drinking coffee from it. I just feel closer to my Dad when I do.
Today, this happened:
I was outside with the kids and was sitting in an adirondack chair and had it sitting on the arm of it next me. Miss C came up and knocked it to the ground and it broke. Ladies, I cried like he’d died all over again. That probably seems a bit silly but I was and still am just heartbroken. Yes, we can try and glue it back together, but I doubt I’ll be able to ever drink coffee from it again. I have many mementos from my Dad, heck, we have a shrine to him and his military career over our fireplace, but that coffee cup was just very special to me. Anyways, I don’t know, it just hit me really hard. I called my Mom and was crying so hard I couldn’t even get out what happened. Needless to say, I gave her a bit of a scare, lol.
This is also Miss C’s last day. 😦 Although I am the one to chose to have them go to a new daycare because I didn’t want to keep working so late every day, I am still very sad to see her go. She is cute as a button and her family is just so awesome. J and I are going miss her bunches!
I will end this post on a brighter note though….I get to go pick up my car today when I get off work!!!! Yay…and J is home safe and sound from DC (and off mowing lawns already)!
