Today I went to Costco. Something that John and I did together and enjoyed doing. It became a family outing. We had a list but always added to it as we went up and down the aisles. As the cart got heavier and heavier and harder to maneuver, we started guessing what our total cost was going to be. It was a contest between us to see who would come closest to the final cost once we were rung up at the register.
Then we quickly went home before the frozen food started to thaw and the ritual of putting all the food away was another chore we shared.
Through it all, we laughed and just enjoyed each other's company. John had a way of making everything fun.
Today I did all of that alone.
And it wasn't the same.
It will never be the same.
