Today I dropped an almost full ice cold drink in my lap while driving. I’m not going to lie- it was so painful and cold that the thought of peeing my pants to regain feeling in my legs did cross my mind briefly.
Don’t worry- I didn’t do it. I wouldn’t. It was just a thought.

There hasn’t been much laughter in our house since he left.
We laughed about ice, grapes, and Disney World.
It felt good.
