It has been one of those looonnngg weeks. Not just because it is 4 days after the Monday that marked the week, but because grief has been a bit heavy. Last week your sister and I went to New York for the weekend for one of her best friends from camp bat-mitzvah. I love that we can take her to as many as we have been and will hopefully be able to continue. Between her trips and your brother's hectic hockey season, I will hardly be home on the weekends for the foreseeable future.
It was a great trip. We stayed on the upper west side. I had forgotten until we went to grab breakfast Friday morning that we had been there before, with you. I was so annoyed because there was hardly a place to maneuver your wheelchair. I remember the last time we were at the upper west side with you I wanted to complain to every store manager over the lack of accessibility manhattan has. Your father wouldn't let me, so I would stew silently over it. Anyway, it was nice to be in a place you had once been.
Your absence is constantly felt on these solo trips due to the ease of travel.
Our return trip home was extra exhausting due to the weather. During landing, we were diverted to Las Vegas for a bit to refuel and wait it out and then returned back to Phoenix. Laeya slept and I got a lot of needlepoint done, so that part was very successful.
Work has been nice but exhausting.
I tried to do a juice cleanse this week, but it didn't work out so well, I think I will just stick with smoothies and eating healthy and not attempt to drink bottles with juiced collard greens.
Your sisters are enrolled in Moshava for next summer and Tzvi's current summer status is on hiatus until we wait to see where he is excepted. He really didn't want to go back to Moshava, and I made him try it for two years, so we are attempting something different, but we shall see what is meant to be.
Meena has been back at gymnastics for less than 4 weeks and has only been doing it for a little over a year and she got her round-off back handspring. We are unsure when she will start to compete and at what level she will start, could be 2 or 3. My vote is to wait until next year so I have time to wrap my head around two competitive sports in the house.
The master bathroom shower doors were finally installed! We are just waiting on the custom laundry room door and then the interior will be complete! The pavers are going in in the front yard, the end is finally near!
Anyway baby girl.
We miss you and love you lots!
