Yesterday, my brother-in-law was taking his boys sledding close to my house. He texted me and said he'd be there in case we wanted to come along. Malea didn't want to go - but Keagan did. Dave always took them sledding - at least a few times per winter. I'm not sure if they ever went last year with it being so cold. I know I didn't go. I generally stayed home to get things done and he didn't seem to mind. He knew I wasn't a big fan of the cold. It was nice yesterday though - I had to take my sweatshirt off because I was sweating! It was a nice time - but it also made me think about Dave.
Dave was certainly a one of a kind guy - at least it seemed to me in observance of other people and listening to others. I think part of it just had to do with the way he was brought up. As I was walking around at the park (we had to walk a lot when I first got there) - it was very slippery. There were tons of hills. Keagan, of course, has tons of energy and was so far ahead of me and just seems to run on snow without any issues. It was hard for me though - I really had a hard time with especially going down the hills. Dave always looked out for me in these situations. He knew the kids could take care of themselves - and he always made sure I wasn't going to fall. I'll miss that forever!
Tomorrow....I'm buying my first house to flip. I hope it is the first of many. I do know that it will make me miss Dave a lot. For the most part - we did all of our household projects together. Even if I was just painting - he'd help me by doing the edging and listen to me debate paint colors and give his opinions. I took the kids to Menard's to help me look at floors and paint. Malea gave her opinion on floors, but for paint they just grabbed a million samples. I'll have to narrow it down and try to figure out what I want. I have to think of the whole picture as well - since I'm selling it. I want it to show well - so I have to be smart!
This week is so busy - I hate being the only one that can drive everywhere. I only have one day this week to go to my flip house to work on it - and most of that time it won't have heat - since I'll be there waiting for them to come turn the gas on. I have something going on every other night! Hopefully that won't happen every week - I need more than just weekends!
Well - thanks for reading :) Have a great week!Well - thanks for reading :) Have a great week!
