The sea crate was delivered yesterday. Hubby won't admit it but he is pretty excited. I think this is just the thing to get him going again. This past year has been really rough on him. He retired a year ago then in January had heart surgery, He has developed emphysema which has really slowed him down. Then with his father passing away and all the care leading up to his death-now he is executor and has all that facing him. He has been quite discouraged lately. Now he is busy making plans for building shelves, buying filing cabinets, and then sorting through the detritus of 50 years of farming and living. Our son and family are coming in this Saturday to stay for several days. He will help hubby build shelves. Then we will all start sorting and moving STUFF! Being that hubby is a borderline hoarder - there is an unbelievable amount of STUFF! Daunting just to think about!

Today we went into San Angelo to look for a sea crate. Hubby has been talking about getting one for three years now. He wants to move a lot of stuff from his large shed and his workshop so he might actually he might have room to WORK there! We found one that had been used in the oil fields . It had been extended 5 feet and an office made at one end. We will probably get it. Hubby has lots and lots of archeology stuff-notebooks, records of sites worked, etc. He may use that as an "archeology" office.
We went to lunch at Joe's Italian. While eating pasta, Hubby broke another tooth off (he only has about 12 left) We went two blocks down to our dentist. Got the estimate and work involved for dentures. The receptionist said "you finally decided to bite the bullet and get this done". Hubby said "if I could bite a bullet, I wouldn't have to be here!"

It has been a rough couple of weeks. Two weeks ago Saturday, my FIL passed away. It was expected but still difficult. especially for hubby. Except for 2 years at A&M and 2 years teaching school, he has lived with or within a mile of his Daddy. Farmed together for 42 years. My step MIL will be heading back to South Texas where all her brothers and sisters and kids and grandkids are. Soon it will be just hubby and I on this big old farm. Don't know what the future will be like. Feel like we sort of in limbo . . .
