Well, I made it through one of the hardest days of my life so far. I think what saved me is that I was busy and distracted. It was when I was alone that I let the sadness get me. I woke up feeling very sad but I couldn't let it break me because I had to get ready for brunch. I met my friend Y and my cousin M and her two adorable girls at the Marmalade Cafe. We had mimosas (yes, plural) and tons of delicious food. After brunch we shopped for a while. Then we separated. This is when the sadness hit me again. I decided that even though Sadie isn't home, I could still buy her presents and cupcakes. I bought her some great board books then went to Toys R Us where I got her a puzzle and a little farm playset. Then I stopped at my favorite cupcake place, Yummy Cupcakes (such a perfect name!), and bought a cupcake for her and a cupcake for me. When I got home I decided to wrap her presents. Now they are on the toy shelf waiting to be opened. Y was so sweet to invite me over later for more Rock Band so I wouldn't be home alone. Just before I left, I put a candle in Sadie's cupcake and lit it. I made a wish for her (I'm sure you can guess what it was) and put her cupcake back in the fridge. Then I went to Y's where we proceeded to play Rock Band until 2am. I was so tired when I got home that I went right to sleep.
I wonder what Sadie did on her birthday. Do you think they even acknowledged it?
