Just got done watching the bucket list with mom and Meryl. It was a good movie. So last night I had Rhonda, Hannah and Tabitha sleep over at the cabin. I’m pretty sure it was one of the best sleepovers we’ve had like ever! And it was a ton of fun! So, everyone got dropped off here between 3 & 4. We drove up, unpacked and went to get the mail. Rhonda had called Aaron’s house on the car ride up and he was at work. So, we knew he wasn’t home. But we walked down the street and took pictures. Pretty much all we did last night was go for walks and talk. We stayed up til 3am and slept in the loft. Aaron didn’t show up at all and I didn’t have any feelings like he should be there. I think it was almost better without him there. Because it was more so us four could hang out together. So, we also had a campfire.
So, this morning we woke up at 10 and Tabitha left at 11. So, us three walked down to the end of the driveway and we see legs from under one of Aaron’s cars. He looks at us and Rhonda waves and smiles really big. We walk down the hill, and he comes down on his atv. Just like the first time. We talked to him for like 20 minutes then had to leave. Yeah, it was one of the best sleepovers I’ve ever had!!

Present day me: This is a bittersweet entry to revisit as well as cathartic. I’m grateful for these good memories.
