Elatia and I had a great day! We had pedicures, then lunch, then funky monkey martinis. Mac, our bartender, was off so we didnâ€™t trust ordering tiramazu martinis, but the funky monkeys were YUMMMMMMMEEEEE! Chocolate and banana flavor! Then we were off to go shopping.
I gave her the silver charm Andrew had picked out for her, â€œI Love My Sisterâ€ to wear with her thumbie. (Andrew’s thumb print in silver) I gave it to her in Andrew’s room. I gave it to her after our pedis but before we went out for lunch so she could wear it. She loved the card and will read it whenever she wants to feel Andrew talking to her.
We laughed, we talked, we laughed some more. We had lunch paid for which was AWESOME! It was a great time! Tomorrow we head off to the beach where her friend will have her boat anchored close to the beach for us to swim to. I haven’t been swimming at he beach in years. Hoping I don’t fry myself to a crisp which is why I don’t go in the water. I’m like a vampire! LOL
Hard to believe it was just over a year ago we were at Manhattan Grill with Andrew, Jeremy. But it is still hard to believe Andrew wouldn’t be here 11 months after Elatiaâ€™s wedding. It’s hard to believe Elatia almost wasn’t here 5 weeks after her wedding. Yup! Itâ€™s been one big mind F**K!!! It’s the only way I can describe it. My life has been totally insane and out of control. I still can’t believe everything that has happened to us within 7 months and dealing with the after shock of everything for 18 months! AND we’re still standing.
Iâ€™m ready for some kick ass, fun and exciting adventures too Jeremy!!!!!!!!!!!! I know I have earned it! I have Hawaii to look forward to in October, right around the 1 year anniversary of Andrew’s ascension. Again, his timing is impeccable! :-)
IT’S ALL GOOD!
