I'm hoping to be home around noon. I'm going to take a nap when I get there, then get on with it. Still dealing with the emotional roller coaster from losing mom, but it is what it is. Just fyi, if anyone else is dealing with the loss... Read more

That's what my trip home will be. Hubs is going to stay another day to help clear out mom's apartment. I'm heading out later tonight, probably. I need some more sleep first. We went to the shop and got hubs truck back, so he'll be able to get... Read more

I wish log in for our sparkstreaks was automatic for being active on the site. My click on the wheel yesterday didn't go through, so it put me back on day 1. Sigh. Not up for dealing with it or trying to do it on cell, so will do it when I fee... Read more

I've gotten the cookware and dishes boxed up and my niece took them to drop off. I sorted most of the photos, and the nieces took a bunch home. Hubs packed up movies and cds, I sorted most of the yarns, threw away stuff that had no hook wit... Read more

Hubs will be in later today, so I will FINALLY have the safety and security I need to be able to process and cry as long as I need to. Until Hubs is with me, I have to stop myself every time I start to lose it. The weirdest thing is that I... Read more

That's still how I'm managing to function. Being alone to do it is HARD. Hubs should be here sometime tomorrow, though. I found someone to groom the little dog for a reasonable price, and I don't have to keep hunting for the shot records. ... Read more

That's how I'm feeling today. My sister had asked me to pick out the obituary photo. With the people in mom's complex having the nerve to already ask YESTERDAY if they could have her things, on top of the physical exhaustion from a week of less ... Read more

My mom passed this morning, rather unexpectedly quickly. She had a perforated bowel caused by pain meds backing her intestines up. She would not have survived surgery, so it was pointless to put her through it. They kept her comfortable and when... Read more

My sister and I talked to mom's Dr. We agreed dnr. We are at the point where it needs to be God's decision, not mom's. The doctor was very relieved that we were aware of the games my mom plays. When my mom is alert and aware and demands fu... Read more

My mom is still choosing to make drama, deliberately endanger herself for attention, being manipulative, and being mean. I am choosing to put myself, my health, and my sanity above her drama. Which, according to her, makes ME a bad p... Read more

Mom had another tantrum yesterday. She demanded a strawberry milkshake and told me it had to be from burger king. I told her it had to wait until I came back because I was not making a special trip. Then she whined and complained to my youn... Read more

My youngest niece called last night and asked me to come to ohio. She's scared and worried. I've always told her I would be there when she needs me. So I got up at 4am and drove 600 miles. Mom's not doing well, so I will be here for a whil... Read more

She was supposed to have her surgery on her back today. I was ok with that, and it was going to be what God needed it to be. I planned to come to campus, study for a bit, take my accounting exam, and run some errands. (the order was a little up ... Read more
