On Day One

“I bet this is what heaven looks like.”
The statement is received with a standard rolling of the eyes that I would expect from the boy sitting next to me. My nonsensical outburst is meant to sound sweet- childlike; however, I can tell that my literal-minded fiancé finds it extremely morbid. I look up again at the unusually violet sky, riddled with impossibly opaque puffs of white cotton. Unreal. This whole day has seemed different than most…a beginning.
Like any other Tuesday, I awoke to my clock radio belting out the sounds of the “70s, 80s, 90s, and today!” Gruesome. I flipped the knob to off, unconsciously swinging my bare toes onto the cold wood floor. The sudden departure from my cozy feather comforter sent a chill up to my earlobes. It was as though my feet had never before experienced a change in temperature. Eerie.
A mediocre day ensued, yet each experience- a dull “good morning” from an even duller coworker, the smell of my microwaved, “gourmet” lunch, even the spectacular view of the dumpster out my peephole of a window seemed, impossibly, new.
Even currently, as I peer out the passenger side of my fiancé’s Civic, at the smattering of shadows created by oversized and un-manicured pine trees, I sigh loudly. The boy turns to me with half a smile.
“Yeah, it’s probably something like this.”


  1. i to have days like that. Day where I look at my fiance as a stranger and wonder how did I ever get so lucky. It is sort of like a dejavu episode just without the repeat button lol.

  11. Hi! I am your newest follower from the Saturday Blog! I have only been blogging a little over a month and it started out as a way to relive some stress but, then I got into the blogger's contests and I found out I could get more entries for posting their giveaways. I am really enjoying it so much. Now I want to try and start working on becoming a reviewer but to qualify I need more followers to show that it is worth it to let me be a follower or not. Who knows where this may lead. But I am going to give it my best shot and see what happens. I have not worked since 12/05/11! Then took 3 1/2 years to get approved but it was a long tiresome journey. I am so close it amost then seemed like it was happening to someoe else, not me! I am following you thru GFC and would greatly appreciate a follow back. It would help me so much!
