You know that feeling like you forgot something, and you aren’t quite sure what it was. There I was riding in the car with my family, on the way to my son’s football practice, and I asked my husband what the date was. He was puzzled, as was I. I glanced down on my phone and saw, 8/27/2014. Suddenly it happened…. tonight, something hit me, like a ton of bricks.
It happened, it really happened? I missed my Dad’s Death Anniversary? How could I have forgotten the date? How could I have let this day slip by without even acknowledging it happened. Why didn’t I remember? Was I so wrapped up in everything else going on, I could have accidentally missed it. Did I miss a sign? Does he know I forgot? How come no one else remembered. I swore this would never happen. It did, and I have mixed emotions. Sad, and Angry that it passed without me remembering. I was/am the responsible one. He trusted me…he counted on me.
On the other hand, I felt semi relieved that I did not crawl in a hole on this day. Not that I usually do, but usually I have a quiet cry, and focus on doing things in his honor on this day. Maybe I have moved on. Maybe I am finally done mourning? NO! I don’t want to be done with mourning the loss of a significant figure in my life. I refuse to wipe out the sadness and bad memories of watching him peacefully take his last breath in that hospital room. Watching his body quickly turn from a 54 year old to an 80 some year old man.
Life goes on. I know. It gets better with time. Maybe it does. But, what I do know is Last Saturday, August 23rd, 2o14 was the first time in 6 years, I missed this date. I was busy with my duties as a Mom and wife, cleaning house, a football game for my son, and running Back to School Errands. Mom Land, my normalcy. I went on with my day as planned and didn’t once think about the significance of this day.
No phone call from my Mom, Twin Sister or my Younger Brother on that day, either. They must have forgotten as well. In their defense, I am not sure. I made a promise to my Dad that I would continue to continue to carry on his legacy, and make sure no one would ever forget him.
Last Saturday, I did. I forgot. This was a day, that I remember like it was yesterday. I can tell you what clothes I was wearing. What the hospital room smelled and looked like, the noise and silence, and everything about that day. Those little details are what gives me strength. That moment was the last time I saw my Dad alive. Full of life, he was not, but he was still with me.
The ironic part of this whole story is, today, 8/27/2008 was his funeral and memorial service. Still not sure quite to make of this. I’m shocked and sad that I could have forgotten such a day.
If you care to read more about the full story behind my Dad Death, you can read about the blog I started when he was in the hospital, if you care too.
For now, back to reality, Mom Land. My normalcy.

Thanks to Smiley360, I am on a Sleep Number Mission! I visited a local Sleep Number Store today, and an excited to share about my wonderful experience! This post is written for a Smiley360 Mission. All opinions expressed are my own. No money was received for this blog post.
My mission was to visit the Sleep Number store and try out the Sleep Number® bed with SleepIQ™ technology. The Sleep Number® bed is the only bed that lets you track and optimize your sleep with SleepIQ™ technology.
Upon completing my visit to the store, I went back to Smiley360 to share about my experience!

I immediately fell in love with the Sleep Number bed! Let me start by saying my mattress is super old (Like 11 years)….we received it as a wedding gift from my in-laws. *GASP I know this is embarrassing to admit I know we should have looked in to replacing this a long time ago! However, in talking with “Jim” at my local Sleep Number Store, I realized that many people are in the same boat! Therefore, I was more than excited to try out Sleep Number Thanks to Smiley360 and Sleep Number
My In Store Sleep Number Visit
Walking in to the store I immediately felt a sense of peace. Keep in my I brought my husband with as well. The lighting was perfect and the quietness of the store, immediately put me in relaxation mode. ”Jim” was the “Sleep Expert” that spoke to use about my SLEEP NUMBER and Smiley360 Mission.
Our first step was to get “Sleep Numbers”. We headed over to the C2 bed as pictured.
Next, “Jim” explained to us that he was going to do the Sleep Number Test. The bed was started at 100 the firmest level. Next, “Jim” dropped it down as low as it goes, and slowly increased the firmness until I said it was too firm. Turns out my number is 60. The same test was done to my husband and his number was a 45. Obviously, we both enjoy different sleeping comfort and support.
“Jim” showed us on a computer the SleepIQ. He explained that the bed can actually tract and optimize your sleep. Using Dual Air technology inside the Sleep Number Bed, our average breathing rate, heart rate, and movement will be monitored to track how we are sleeping! You can view your Sleep IQ store with the remote, web, or an iOS app! Keep track of your daily habits and activity levels to help identify quickly what affects your Sleep IQ score!
I love this!
In addition, I loved that our personal experience was emailed to us. The monitor showed the relief of pressure points at as the bed was set to my Sleep Number.
I would love to own a Sleep Number Bed. I was more than impressed. I highly recommend everyone to go in and get their Sleep Number today!
