This pile of flattened boxes and 13 china boxes crammed full of paper are now at the recycling center.  Still lots more boxes to go!  It's slow going, but at least it's going!

March 11,2012

March 11th........Momma's birthday. She would have been 76 years old.   It has been 6 months since Momma died and today it feels like just yesterday.  My family and I went to visit Dad today....thought he might want/need the company.  I guess he enjoyed the visit, at least I know that my grandkids made him smile a few times, even though they were subdued.  I think they knew things were different.  While lunch was warming up, I wandered around the house.  It seemed that Momma was everywhere and at the same time no where.   I think about Momma everyday but today it was different.  Maybe it was because it was her birthday, maybe it was because this was the first time I had been back home since LaDonna left and Dad was by himself. I don't really know but the house seemed like an empty shell.  The heart was missing. Don't really know how Dad felt.  He never said.  All I do know is that as soon as lunch was finished, he said he was going back to bed and went to the bedroom.  We got the kitchen cleaned up, told him bye, and left.

By the time we got back home, I felt that I needed to share.  LaDonna called while I was writing and we talked a long time...laughing and crying together over the phone.   I think that we both needed the time to deal with everything.  We both came to the conclusion that we needed what I termed 'a cry fest'.  We both know that Momma is so much better off as my granddaughter said " she's all better"...and we will be also....given time.

Boxes, Boxes, Everywhere!

It's been a long 6+ months. 

March 8, 2012:  A beautiful day for which we were very thankful!  It rained the day before and it's raining today, the day after.

Fergus is now very happy to have "his" sofa back!  The movers had a lot of fun teasing me about all the boxes labeled "sewing room"!  Now, the work really begins with trying to find a place for everything!
