  1. Dear FIL passed Friday afternoon

    He's at peace, with his Saviour, while the rest of us seem to be in a daze. He was at home, as he requested. Surrounded by friends, family. Holding his hand was the love of his life, while DH (of mine) read Psalms, through tears to him. Peaceful, quiet, and just what this wonderful, amazing, and humble man wanted.

    The last three days have seemed a week. I'm numb, still in shock, I guess, haven't really broken down, but can't concentrate on anything.

  2. Disappointed in lack of 'chore' completion

    Housework is slipping, some. I'm more tired than I anticipated, working the 'day camp.' We do have clean clothes, and dishes, but everything else has been let go for the moment - what a cluttered, dusty disaster! I need to do housework today!!

    Also, FIL is needing DH and I regularly to help move or adjust his position (laying on bed to wheelchair to sitting up on bed to commode). MIL can't do it by herself anymore, FIL has no strength left, it seems.

    We've had a ...

    We are 'blessed' to have my inlaws living next door - literally, not 50 ft away. My FIL has been battling cancer for two-plus years. His health has taken a nosedive the last month, and was told he had 5 months to live. This week, it is supposedly 2 months. My MIL has been in serious denial up until yesterday, when hospice came. She refuses help, won't ask for any, and wants to do it all herself. She is healthy, but is totally exhausted. FIL is sleeping during the day, up at night, MIL is trying ...

    Tomorrow I'm going scrapbooking - it's a free retreat, and I'm bringing my own snack and lunch. Time to take care of me, for a change!
  5. Office Tackled.

    I've been a very busy girl these past two days (yay, me!) My office slash guest room slash scrapbooking, quilting, letter writing, photography, floral design, slash junk ROOM (no junk DRAWERS here! ha) was conquered, well, most of it anyway.
    I do see floor (imagine!). I can walk into the room without the threat of bodily injury, whoopie! I do have a guest bed - thought so! (still somewhat rumpled, however). I've put away *gasp* stuff from stepdaughter's wedding, tossed mounds of work-related ...
