- Today began crazy for me, and ended with a moment to rejuvenate myself.
- My OT session was a positive one. I received more Kinesio tape for my left hand, and got to take some time to rest.
- I got to replace my Freestyle Libre sensor today. I also got to read a positive article in a magazine during break.
There’s so much more I would love to share about Johanna, yet the right words are hard to come by. You would think that as a poet, words would flow onto the screen easily. All the memories of our conversations come at me at once: the phone calls, the text messages, the group hangouts. I want to write about it all, yet every memory gets lumped together, and I’m left in shocked silence. And all that’s left are the ‘if only’ thoughts: If only we hung out in New York more often, if only I made more of an attempt to text her, if only I wasn’t so consumed with ‘what could fail’ and focused more on ‘Look at all the things we can share’!
All I can think about is this: there’s such an absence now that Johanna’s gone. These wonderful moments with her are now precious memories. There were other moments that I wished to share with her, but they will never come to be. Life indeed passes too quickly.

This afternoon I went to Jersey Girl Brewery with Andy and a couple other friends. It was a great spot to relax and enjoy a flight for a couple hours. I really admired the selection of apparel the brewery contains.
Earlier today we received an email from a deacon assigned at our church, reaching out to schedule a date to meet and discuss. We’re both excited, since this is one step closer to scheduling a date for the big day.
Andy and I finally saw Avengers: Infinity War this afternoon. It was very good, filled with action and unexpected twists. I especially enjoyed viewing the scenes after the film. It brings much to look forward to when the next Avengers movie comes out.
The next movie we want to check out is Deadpool 2. The first Deadpool movie was enjoyable, and the main character was hilarious to watch. I’m curious to see who he will battle with in this film.

My ankle is feeling better than it did a week ago. Around this time last week I could barely walk on my left foot, very painful. Now, with the exception of a little soreness when I turn my foot, I can walk feeling little pain. The air cast is certainly a big help.
I look forward to the extended weekend! Andy and I will visit good friends from Andover on Sunday. We may also attend a special event, but we need to see if we want to get up early that day.
