The kids, Eron and his wife Meredith, helped me clean the bedroom. We moved the nightstand he, AC, hit when he fell out of bed to my side and put mine on his side. Mine has rounded corners. Not that it would have mattered; the area has become a small memorial to him.
I am grateful for the support shown by friends and acquaintances. I made sure to acknowledge every card.
Co-workers Penny and Travis brought me yummy food. Shopping and cooking have yet to make it to my agenda.
I tried to drive to Cobb county for the East Cobb Quilter's Guild show yesterday, but sadly didn't get very far before I was overwhelmed. I got off the highway and drove to Planned Pethood. I'd gotten an e-mail from them saying they needed people to come pet, and perhaps foster, some kittens. Kittens would surely cheer me up; they cheer everyone up, so I thought I'd foster a litter.
They were closed, so I sat in the parking lot and sobbed to Mom. She said "go home and clean your sewing room." I got my quilt book shelf cleaned up, but the sewing room might be too much for me right now.
A few days ago, I found a beautiful bowl for $3 at Marshalls. It makes a great place to store my glasses next to the chair in my reading corner. This was formerly where he and I sat to watch TV. My Jasper secretary replaced his leather recliner when we cleaned up. It was too much to have it empty beside me. I also have not watched much TV.
|Yes, Mom, that is my new lamp, and it still has the cellophane on the shade.|
The bed has new linens.
I don't remember being alone.
You get used to it.
Other women tell me.
It must be so.
