Easing My Way

So, as my life has been learning to deal with the loss of Steve, in every aspect… daily mundane conversations, weekly plans, what are we having for dinner… blah blah blah. Since all our kids have flown the coop, and Steve isn’t here, it’s all totally on my plate to deal with my special needs…

Calculating

Here’s what I found to be calculated: I know I’m lonely. I know I need daily conversation about nothing. I also know that I’ve discovered some of the best times to text and network with my kids, family and friends. Why? Because I have all the time in the world now to discover this and…

And Just When…

And just when everything starts to feel okay with the world, while you do the most normal part of your daily routine, a realization will hit you like a ton of bricks, and suddenly you don’t feel so normal or okay. I just let the cat out, and I let her back in at the…

Let’s Talk About It

Anyone who has been in any type of relationship has talked about it. “It” being… anything. Whether it was dinner plans, a future vacation or where we’re going that day… The talk about “it” could mean many things. And I don’t mean that every day decisions like a meal should be a big deal, but…

Navigation

All of our lives, we navigate. We may not feel like we are the captains of our ship at times, but we are. When we make decisions early on in our lives… and I mean primarily starting as soon as we are presented and given options. What sports do we want to pursue? What are…

A Bottle

There was a post in the Nextdoor app about how a woman met another woman at the checkout line in a store. The one stranger, “Mary,” gave “Sue” some words of encouragement and kindness that Sue very much needed. It was a thread from a local county. Sue posted it cause she just wanted Mary…

Never Judge a Book by its Cover

I am pretty much available all the time, except for our daughter’s weekly scheduled music therapy and her companion takes her two days a week from 9-5. That’s when I schedule my personal appointments that I can’t take her with. I find myself inviting people over now that the weather is nice, just so I…

Things I Dislike

I actually wanted to title this “Things I Hate,” but I don’t think that word should be in any vocabulary. What you “hate” today, as you ate it, saw it, read about it, smelled it, in another perspective, you might be okay with it. I dislike going to sleep at night now. I don’t know…

Life is a journey

When you lose a significant partner in life… you go on an emotional journey. Steve and I used to go to our favorite winery 4-6 times a year. It was Childress Vineyards, in Lexington, NC. We started going there as we were both big NASCAR fans, and Steve was a fan of Richard Childress. We…

Time for Plans

I have previously talked about how life goes on – how my life has changed directly, while others say they feel or felt Steve’s loss, they don’t feel it every day like I do. Some of our friends are still working full time jobs, a few here and there are retired. I get the craziness…
