Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! I had decided to battle my outrageous gas bills by turning off the heat completely and being that the weather was in the 60s and 70s last week, I felt like it was a safe bet. But today, Fate is laughing at me as I am bundled in 3 layers sitting in my home. I refuse to wear a coat in my home, but I also refuse to pay $400+ again for heat. Dilemma?! Maybe the layer of ice on everything will help insulate the apartment better than whatever is supposed to be insulating it!
I've gone through Katie's saved Favorites folder on the computer. Well, everything except the one that was labeled Cancer and Pregnant. It's nice to see her "fingerprints" on things and she saved everything on the computer which is so different from physical things which she loved to throw out. I am planning at some point to grow through her saved files on her email. She's had the email address for years so it might take some time. I also pulled out some of her photo albums that I'm going to look through later. Probably not the best idea but I'm a glutton!
St. Patrick's day was such a fun tradition for us. We always gave each other gifts and did something. Usually found some place with green beer. We did something every year except the year we found the melanoma. She was still recuperating from the surgery and waiting for the results such a fun time but we still enjoyed the day. In fact, we always enjoyed every day whether we escaped to the beach or country, went to dinner or just sat around the house watching the TV or each other. I miss enjoying things. I've done some things with friends but as far as actually enjoying anything, I haven't. I can't figure out how to enjoy. I can have fun. I can laugh. But it all feels hollow. Life feels hollow. I guess it will change. Who knows?!
I'm attaching a picture of Katie at Cat's Meow with the manager. It was our first time in New Orleans and it was St. Patrick's day. Our first one together. Good times.
