Marisa: With all the kids away at College things here are very quiet.
I started to get alittle depressed and spent a lot of time out by Eric's grave. I yelled, I cried but things didn't really get any better.
I soon came out of that funck and decided to get fit. I still had the obstical course from my military days.
I figured since our eldest daughters were best friends and our younger kids were dating we should get to know each other better so I invited the Beckers over for dinner.
I also found myself spending a lot of time in the greenhouse and soon had a Bronze Badge in gardening.
Ethan came around one evening and we talked about the renevations I was thinking of doing around the house. I figure when he comes home the family would grow quite quickly.
After a lot of planning and a lot of mess I had the main floor redone and the outside painted. I think it looks really good.
After the dinner with the Becker's, Amy and I soon became good friends. She came over to see the renevations and then she said.... "you've done a makeover on your house now it's time to do one on you".
Amy helped me and we re did my hair and a bit of makeup. I feel a whole new person. Ethan won't know what to think when he comes home again.
