DD's last night at home is not one I will remember with fondness. I was depressed and, despite determining not to say anything, couldn't help myself. So many things left, unnecessarily, till the last minute. I would have liked for us to spend some time together but I barely saw her all day or evening - she was out till 5pm and in her room all evening except while we had dinner [and then my parents were watching the news so we couldn't talk]. We did have some time together - at 9am - she had a pedicure and I had a manicure [the first of my life!]. She was then taken away for a facial while I had a pedicure [also my first].
I know I sound selfish - maybe I am - but the grief is real and must be gone through [unfortunately].
And how is today looking?
