Happy dad..I know what you mean. But as my late hubby was a JW..we rarely shared movies like that..
So I sat and cried alone even when he was alive.
I mostly enjoy being alone now..but I sure do miss having someone to share things with....Even little things like laughing at a movie..my laugh echo's in my mind.
I have two daughters and a son that are grown and have families of their own. Besides kids just aren't the same..they have their own interests ,lives and families now.
And forget vacations unless you have a close friend.
I used to go to the park that hubby and I shared after he died but I would end up bawling and have to leave.
Snoozy...who sure misses hubby...
I think next year I will volunteer or something ...maybe that will help.
