Weekend News

I'm not sure how to classify this weekend.  Was it good? Yes, for the most part, but I got some tragic news about a someone I worked with for a number of years.  And of course, when you've worked together for over 4 years, you become friends, even if you don't do anything together outside of work.  So, yes, I got some tragic news about a friend of mine.  She decided to end her life this weekend.  I don't know many details and I don't know what led her to make this decision.  I know that she has been out of work for over 2 years and broke up with her boyfriend recently.  I'm not sure if those were reasons enough to drive her to want to not live anymore.

I know that we've been trying to get together for a lunch date, but then I has to postpone.  Then there was the family vacation so I we couldn't meet up until after we got back.  Then when I got back from vacation, I needed time to settle back into our routine so we couldn't meet up that week.  Then it was too late. I don't know what I'm trying to say, but I keep thinking that maybe I could've done something to prevent the outcome.  I know it's ridiculous to think this way, but still.

Anyway, I just couldn't help thinking about her after I heard the news, so I thought I'd write it down and hopefully find some peace.

Our weekend was pretty quiet.  The boys played with their friends. We are enjoying game-free weekend.  Soccer and lacrosse games start next week. 

Tonight, we are celebrating M's birthday with a dinner at home.  His birthday is actually tomorrow, but he has a soccer game so he requested that we have it tonight. His parents are coming over, so I hope the food turns out well! I'm planning on roasting a chicken and serving it with potato au gratin.  Whoop! I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Took some pictures of this little cutie this weekend. He is WALKING!
