The past month has been a veritable blur. So much time spent at the hospital...so much time spent at the bedside of a dying loved one...so much time spent making arrangements...so much time spent taking care of bills and paperwork that aren't even mine...so much time spent helping a loved one with memory loss adjust to her loss...loss of husband, loss of home, loss of self identity. So we settle into our new "normal". Through all of this I must say I have been very impressed and deeply touched at how well The Comedian has handled this new normal. Today I took a vacation day to journey over to The Nana's house to clear things out so the The Bride and Groom can move in later this month. We aren't ready to sell the house because of the poor housing market so we will rent it to them and know it is in good hands. I have sooo many projects at the home front untouched and neglected. My bills and paperwork are stacking up waiting for some attention. I either want to bury my head in the sand or run screaming from all that needs to be done. But I'll take each day as it comes. Learning to deal with my new "normal".
