Casual Friday Lunch

One of my favorite things to do is go to lunch with my sister on her lunch break. We go to the same spot every time: Pizza Port. They have delicious pizza, salad, and beer! But what we really go for is the grilled chicken caesar salad, it’s so good! Last Friday was a special lunch though because my mom and niece also joined us. We had such a nice time talking about random stuff, it felt normal again. When I say “it felt normal again” what I mean by that is that ever since my dad died and we’ve had to sort out my dad’s estate, everyone has been kinda on edge. Whenever we’re together, we always somehow steer the conversation back to my dad’s estate. Sometimes it’ll be completely random, like something about selling the house, or it could be mentioning we don’t have time to do anything because his estate takes up a lot of time (especially my sister’s time, she’s a saint!). So it’s gotten to a point where having a conversation where my dad isn’t mentioned feels normal.

I’m trying to soak up all these lunches the best I can because I know it won’t last much longer. Soon I’ll be working again and my sister will be even busier when she starts student teaching. Sometimes I wish life could be a little simpler, such as just having time to spend with those you don’t get to see that often. I went from seeing my sister and her family and my parents every weekend during my first and second year of law school to seeing them maybe once or twice a month. It’s a weird transition but one I know I’ll have to get used to.
