Mornin all! Nice weather we have been having. Is this still called Indian Summer? Or is that politically incorrect?
Well.. News from me is we are moving back to WI. Not Racine, "Up North" to you. Been working hard to get things packed and sell the house. It's not an easy thing, if you have ever sold a house! Dad (Dave's) is getting up there in age and we decided he shouldn't be alone. Since his wife passed away he's been lonely and he won't come here, so we will go to him. Don't want him spending the winter alone.
So, as soon as we can get things moving here, we will be living at the lake house. I'm going to miss Minnesota and my friends I've made here. But family is important. He's the last surviving parent for both of us.

MC, moving sucks, but time with parents us a great thing.
Last night began the process of saying good bye to my mom in love. Today is it. I cried so much when she was hanging on, but have not been able to since she passed. I can feel I need to, but I'm just stuck. I know it will get better, just need to adjust to her no longer being here. I still have moments that I want to call her and catch myself... such a wonderful lady, and so very glad she was part of my life <3

MC - good luck with everything.

LM - this is the hard part. I can't tell you how many times I was going to call my mom and then realized she was gone. You will cry when you need to and sometimes when you don't want to.

Rain predicted today; it's humid enough that's for sure.

Have a safe day Irregulars.

MC- Good luck with the move I know how you feel about packing I never did like to do that either. You are right when you say family is important.

LM- If you ever need to talk don't ever hesitate to call me. I am always here for you.

MC, I hope the transition is smooth.

LM, OKIE is right about thinking of asking someone something, and then you realize that they're gone. Mom died three years ago and my sister 3 months after that. I don't know how many times I've had a question for my mom before I realize again that she's dead. Then I think maybe my sister would know. But, she's gone, too. It's a little maddening at times. An entire universe dies with each person.

Crying can be therapeutic.

I'm not a crier. It took me a long time to let out the emotion after my mom died. The end was not easy for her. It was a relief to finally let her be at peace, and that made me feel guilty in some ways. What I found was that the tears sneaked out at odd times.... a sappy commercial, or other emotive things that I previously had no problem with holding myself together. Okie is correct, it will happen in time when the shock wears off, whether you want it to, or not.

I find myself smiling and thinking about all the good things, more than grieving. We all have our raison d'etre. Those who have passed, have satisfied whatever they were here to do. You just have to think of the things they gave when they were here, and hope you leave a decent legacy when it is your turn.
