Most people associate “Hump Day” with Wednesday…or maybe not. For me, I’ve started to associate it with the turning point in Noah’s long visits when it goes from being easy for me to “I feel like crumbling on the spot.”
Today’s Hump Day. One week after he leaves. Father’s Day. Scott’s son, Auggie, arrived today for his first long visit with us. I spoke with my Dad today for the first Father’s Day in two years. He told me he loved me…without me saying it first. And we actually conversed. I’m going to be a mama to only Auggie for the next three weeks while trying to balance work, play and keep my emotions in check because Noah’s not here. I feel like crumbling on the spot. Today is definitely Hump Day.
But. But, I know that while I’m feeling lonely and feeling sorry for myself today, Noah has had a great time this week climbing mountains, riding his bike and today he spent Father’s Day with his dad at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
But I can still miss him.
