I emailed my instructors yesterday. I apologized for not dealing with things better and keeping up with my classwork. I asked if my grades can be salvaged or if I need to drop and retake the semester. No excuses, I'm the one messing up. I g... Read more

I didn't think it was possible to feel even worse about things, but here I am, struggling even more. Sigh. Evidently, that's part of grieving. It's not one of those things you can just deal with and get over. And we ALL know that patience i... Read more

Mom's funeral is over, she is buried with dad, and I can start getting on with getting past it. It was harder than I thought it would be. A few people came, but not many. One aunt tried starting trouble and I shut it down. I'm not particip... Read more

Hubs just loaded freight and will be here later today for the funeral tomorrow. This is as hard as it was waiting when mom passed. I have things I COULD be doing, I just don't feel like it. I COULD be doing my tax project. I COULD be workin... Read more

The drive wasn't too bad, until I was about 2 hours out. The closer I got, the harder it got. It's the first time I've been back since my dad died in 2010. I got checked into my hotel, made a small grocery run (healthy dinner, celery, chee... Read more

I'm struggling with the grief today. All I feel like doing is crying, but I'm not letting it happen right now. I don't want to fall apart during class. To be honest, though, it's probably going to happen. More than once. Sigh. It is what it is. ... Read more

So I made homemade ham and bean soup and have cornbread in the oven. Used a smaller pot and only made enough for a few bowls. Didn't make a giant cake pan of cornbread, either. I'm getting there.... Read more
