It has been five months since my last post. So much for my New Year's resolution to keep things more current. Sorry about that.
I have been traveling constantly with my "new" job. Been at it for 7 months now! Usually on the road Tuesday through Friday most of the time. My iPad does not allow me to blog too easily, at least not that I have figured out. Anyway, I was only home for about 8 days in the month of March due to business travel. Lots of people ask me if I am traveling so much to "escape." To "escape" so that I am not home so much to think of Tom and the accident and my life without him. The answer to that is NO. I have always wanted a job where there is heavy travel involved. I LOVE TO TRAVEL. I used to have a job like this in the past, several years ago. Tom would travel with me whenever he could and he loved it. He was great on his feet...able to entertain my clients and do well in any type of situation. That I do miss very much. The social aspects of my job and knowing I could just brief him on who the client and spouse was and he would take it from there. Entertaining a couple when he was around was much easier than me entertaining a couple alone.
On a more personal note, I actually have connected via email with the widow of a pilot who died in a private plane crash a few months before Tom. It has been very good for both of us...to share experiences as only we could understand. She lives on the West Coast and I am out here on the East Coast, but hopefully we will meet at some point in the future. It is amazing to talk to someone else who gets what you are going through. It's something that not many people understand and I hope they never do!
Well, that's all for now. I won't promise to do a better job at posting because I clearly can't keep my promise. LOL. However, I do want everyone to know that I do appreciate all of the thoughts and good wishes that continue to come my way on a personal level. I have only met a few of you in person, and emailed others, but I feel like I have known you all for a very long time. Your thoughts and wishes are very much appreciated.
