Paying My Respects

I’ve been meaning to write this since Tuesday, but hadn’t gotten around to it till today. It’s just that this is a hard subject for me to talk about. How would it feel if something that you have been with for almost three years is no longer there? It’s a very hard transition to make in my life; I think that I am going to have to do some serious soul searching. I know that I will make it out of this alive and a better person for it but I may take a few months to recover.

Well I will cut to the point. On Tuesday while I was at work my Iowa Hawkeye’s wristband broke. And with it my streak of carrying something Hawkeye with me for almost 3 years is over. I know I can start a new streak, and I plan on doing so, it’s just the fact that it was my first Hawkeye wristband, and it will be a hard one to let go. I may take a couple months off before I try and replace it. I think by taking this time off I will be able to step back and realize all the memories, good and bad, we have had. When this hiatus is over I will be ready for a new wristband.
