Day 34 – One month + 4 days (November 13, 2012)
Woohoo!! Thanks to the son of a good friend, half my Christmas lights are up. Too bad that it’s raining and slippery outside. Funny story from across the street, one of Amanda’s childhood friends kept pestering her dad to put up their lights as the Celebration Memorial is approaching. Slowly but surely, he did. Now to make it snow ….. What an interesting day? It was the Bullying Summit organized and hosted by Christy Clark and her government. I heard it went well. That there were things that got accomplished in it. Interestingly enough, Amanda Todd’s name was mentioned throughout the day. Christy Clark even mentioned Amanda saying “We lost Amanda and it was a tragedy but we should learn from that. She would want that from us.” Yes Amanda would have wanted that but she also would have wanted me to be there with her in spirit. That is just something not many people knew about Amanda and I in the last year. We bickered. We argued. We played. We swore at each other. We went to get our nails and toes painted (I hated it at first but she talked me into it). We did the make-up aisles together. We argued about what kind of potato chips to buy. It was all mom and daughter fun and I will miss it terribly.
This is a short and possibly boring blog. Going to bed now. Is it still raining outside???
Love you all.. xoxo”
