today is the 6-month anniversary of my dad's death. each day with him gone, means i have to let go of a plan i had for my dad. he will not play catch with the boys in the backyard; he will not watch the boys play football; he will not be there when the boys hit a homerun for the first time; he will not help design and build the boys a fort; he will not advise me on the tools i need to construct furniture; he will not fix my electrical problem in the laundry room; he will not be there when we build above the garage. i relied on his guidance and expertise a lot. i miss you daddy.
i finally sent in the paperwork for my insurance inheritance. i have no idea what i am going to do with it. ideas i am toying with are lasik eye surgery, landscaping our yard, family vacation on a disney cruise, savings bonds for the boys' college, adopting a girl...
i want to do something that he would approve of.
