Chilly today................

The heat vent comes in handy when you have to go outside early in the morning - even when you're covered with thick fur.

It's going to get a lot colder before winter's over.  As the sole caretaker of our little house (besides Rascal)  I hope I have everything covered.  Some extra wood on the covered patio in case the heat goes out, yard taken care of, Perry (my son-in-law) checked everything out - even tightened the bathroom stool!)  I had the furnace checked out.  The guy asked who took care of it before.  Leonard did, he took care of everything, I tried to learn some of the things but I was very spoiled.  No appliance man to pay for his services, or plumbing, or electrical - I always treasured all that.  He took my car to the garage for maintenance.  Amanda did it when she was here but now I'm on my own.  I'm sure I will manage because I love my little house and want to be here.

I miss him every day.  Things seem to be going along fine and then some little thing will break through my consciousness and the tears come.  I don't want to go to a grief group.  I was married to him for 30 years, I will take my time.

Hope your day is a beautiful one.                                 Diane

Hello Diane, I am so sorry you are having a difficult time. I can understand your sadness. One day at a time. You have your furry friend to keep you company. Have a good weekend.

Oh Diane,I can feel your heart right now. I too was spoiled and now I have to take care of all those things.It was a steep learning curve for me.I never did go to a grief group,but took my time and am still working through things. I don't think there will ever be a day when I don't miss Jake,but I am learning to live without him at my side and you will too. Love and hugs to you.

There's always friends and family who can be there to help you make sure you've taken care of the business side of living. But you have to take care of the personal inside stuff on a daily basis so sometimes a tear session is in order. Crying is our emotional release so don't hold back the tears. It's a cleansing for your soul. It takes time.
