In an effort to dig myself out of the latest hole I've found myself in, I've had to let some things go. Notably, the condition of the house. And the meager amount of cooking I do. And my blog. Just way too much going on right now. I am hopeful that by the end of April, I'll be done with selling all of my dad's properties and will have the estate stuff wrapped up, but that remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, I had to drag myself out to my childhood home with Spouse for one last time. I knew I needed to visit once more before the closing but at the same time, I dreaded it. I'll write more about it when I've had time to process my feelings. Let's just say that it was gut-wrenching to walk through the house one last time and know that now I really must leave my childhood behind.
So for now I'm hunkering down again, trying to get on top of everything I've taken on. April will bring a little relief, I think -- I hope -- so until then, I'll just keep doing the best I can. Grief has taken a lot out of me. I hope that in time, I'll be able to gather up the pieces and put my life back together again.
