Christmas Tree

Finally figured out how to put the Christmas tree in this post.  It's a bit early but the past four months have been extraordinarily difficult, sad and life-altering.  Putting up the tree has helped some.  I just want to end the year with something positive, pretty and fun.See More

Thinking Ahead

It's been a difficult, sad and life-altering year.  For the past four months my life has been consumed with settling my husband's estate, taking care of my developmentally delayed son and just getting through each day.  The arrival of November has been urging me to start planning for the holidays.  For the first time ever, my youngest sister just told me that her children have to work on Thanksgiving so her family won't be able to come.  My daughter's boyfriend has been on an out of town job…See More

Pegasus commented on Rainy (Misty)'s blog post I came across this meme today on pintrest and thought it is worth sharing.
"For me, every word of that is true.  I am grateful for the 51 years we shared and the memories we made that I will have forever.  At the same time, I am reminded every day when I wake up that he's not there and I feel the loss and…"

Taking Care

Dear God, just checking in, as I do every day, to thank you for taking care of my Bob.  I know he's free of illness and pain up there with you and that he's happy being reunited with his parents and brother, but I sure do wish that you'd seen fit to let him stay with me and our children a few more years.  That may be selfish but I know you understand.  There'll never be another like him in my life.  He was my first and he'll be my last.  Throughout the years I've thanked you before for sending…See More

Making Progress

Posted on October 8, 2018 at 12:05pm 4 Comments

Progress has been very slow but as my husband always said, "It may be slow but it's progress as long as it's moving forward."  Today I am waiting for the arrival of two tow trucks to pick up Bob's two vans.  I'm donating them to a charity that uses the proceeds to fund the education of under privileged children.  One is good for nothing but scrap, the other is old but runs fine.  They're happy to get them and I will be happy to have them gone.  Donating the vans is my first act of releasing…

I totally understand your loss of your husband. I’m glad you had a little time together just to be with him and maybe get a few things in order before his passing. I have had to deal with shared iPads, his phone, his amazon prime, our Costco cards, health insurance all co mingled with his office.  He was just 71 but did not want to retire and was working part time from home. Most is taken care of now. The amazon prime paid for by his company expires next year. Same with Costco card. I had to change the email address and credit card in the amazon account to mine. What a mess he left me with and I tell him this. He was the technical one. Did all the Apple stuff for his company and us. All Apple ids were his email at work, which if not gone now will be removed from his Apple items. I still have one of his iPads, as he had 2. I have not changed anything in it yet as his office said until they change it to leave it alone. His work was uploaded to the cloud and they are still retrieving it. Early this morning I was having a strange dream. In the background at 4:30 I hear his cell phone ring tone and at the same time I had a jiggle in my bed. He woke me up. My bed is a  Tempur-pedic and they don’t move. This has happened a few time since his death 2 months ago. I know he is here to try And help me with this grief. Life is oh so,different now.
