First things first-- I did finally put all the photos away -- still have these four boxes to sort through and give to the kids or put in albums/boxes. But at least the mess is cleaned up!
The kids are coming out on Sunday and we're having a cookout. This will be the first holiday without Bill, of many more to come. Having the grandkids all there will make it a lot easier though, I think.
I had dinner last night with a good friend and she gave me some really good advice (she lost her husband 4 years ago). The advice was to write everything down -- everything I do everyday -- which is really a great idea -- I'll have documentation of the phone calls I made and what I've done so far. Later on I will surely have forgotten what I did when or if I did certain things, so this advice was really invaluable. Thanks, Ginny!
Good friends to lean on.
Getting more and more things done every day. This is such a long process and it really helps to see what has already been done.
