Good afternoon Friends,
Today was a bit rough. I went back to the crematorium with DH’s honorable discharge and his ss #. Then I had to sign papers, order death certificates, pay the bill. I was really glad to leave the place. It was too ‘dead’ for me, pun intended. (DH would have liked that coming from me.) Yesterday when I was there with Nanci, the gentleman said DH would be in refrigeration, at the same time I said ‘on ice’. That again sounded so like DH. We had so much fun together. I’m not saying we didn’t have some rough spots, who doesn’t. It’s how you deal with things, it’s about love, faith, forgiveness, encouragement, working well together, etc.
Yesterday morning I had a mild panic attack thinking about taxes and other stuff that I didn’t take care of before and will have to now. I had to take a few deep breaths and told myself to calm down.
All of this that happened this morning should take about 10 days to complete. That gives me some time to breathe and think about things. All in good time will things come about.
Today I am dismantling the day bed we had set up in our bedroom. I also found two rugs for the caravan, and was looking around in there to see what needs to be tackled one thing at a time. I’m hoping I can figure out how to hook up the lights in the ceiling. I found the instructions, I just have to cut the power to the caravan and follow them, then see if I did it right. I’ve helped DH so much over the years with all the building/construction projects here in our compound. Now I’ve got to learn how to use some small power tools and my inspiration for that is Funky Junk Interiors. Donna is a whiz at using power tools.
My boss just dropped by. Brought homemade guacamole by his wife, from avocados from their own tree. He gave me my Christmas bonus early, and he paid me for working this week. I’ll be working Thurs-Sat. I owed him for a day, but he went ahead and paid me for three days this week. We talked and cried and he said his wife would help me with the hospital paperwork, as that is what she does. So when that all starts trickling in I will, and am thankful for their help in that way. He said if there is anything that needs doing around here just make a list and he and my friend Nanci and her husband would do what they can to help me.
It is very warm and humid here today and I am so thankful the a.c. is working. That is amazing to me and I am thankful to God for that blessing.
That’s it for now.
