Grieving is hard work-

I was doing ok. I really was handling things pretty well, all things considered. Then I got a text yesterday that sent me into a tailspin. From the landlord at my shop. He had messaged me about calling the signmaker and asked how things we... Read more
Just UGH.

So, I'm still battling the reaction to the flu shot. Which stinks, because I'm feeling worse by the day. Sigh. It is what it is. A few days now is better than a month of illness later, I guess. I got up this morning and went to leave for s... Read more

It's going to be a long and most likely rough month coming up, but I will manage to get through it. Mom's obituary is posted already. I find it ironic that the family members that were so insistent I get things planned are not only not comi... Read more
Insane? Yep.

So, the definition of insanity is repeating behavior expecting a different result, right? Every time I get a flu shot, I get sick. Don't start on me that vaccines can't make you sick. The flu shot does with me. EVERY TIME. Not as sick as I ... Read more
Looks like the season is done...

High winds again yesterday and more wind and rain coming in today. I think my outdoor season is over. Son and I are going shopping today in green bay. We'll see if we can find music for the service. Sigh. Another month and it will be done. ... Read more

I just made the corrections and approved the obituary for my mother. Am I done being an adult for the day? Her service is next month (she was cremated, so it's not creepy) and the newspaper version will be printed the Sunday before the serv... Read more

For the memorial service. The day and time are what I'd hoped for. I get the proof for the obituary tomorrow. So many more details to work out...I can do this, one day at a time... ... Read more

If you're going to weigh yourself, do it before you're completely dressed...including shoes...with your pockets full of change and your backpack on. If you don't, it's going to say something rude! Like you're up 5lbs instead of maintaining ... Read more

I called my counselor and went down to see him yesterday. I let the schoolwork slide a little to do it. It was necessary. I've got to deal with all of this in a healthy way and not let it put me back to where I used to be. I can't imagine h... Read more
So, that happened...

My weekend was a nightmare. The next five and a half weeks until Mom's memorial service don't look to be much better, but I'm dealing with it. I'm not off the rails, I'm not binging, I didn't drop out of school, and I'm functioning. It... Read more

Skipping today's market for high wind warnings. Last week I lost 2 racks to the wind. Yesterday, the scrubbie bins blew over and stuff wouldn't stay on tables. (Obnoxious woman next to me said "I heard the crash" in this superior tone of voice ... Read more

My Friday the 13th

Was spent planning mom's memorial and burial of her ashes. Not a great day. Hubs is being amazing, as usual, but it's all on me to plan and arrange. According to him, he's "just in it to provide moral support and pay the bill. Oh, and play ... Read more
Holy cr*p, I'm getting it?!

I blogged about butting head with my instructor about my integrity and refusing to resubmit my work after correcting it with the class. Well, the assignment in question has been graded and I got...Wait for it...95%!!! Not exactly sure how I... Read more
