Thought I would quickly do a blog in case we lose power, as some people have lost their's already. We have had a fortnight of hot weather, so over it now but it is now raining. We have had about 1 inch so far. So now it is very muggy. Cool change later tonight or tomorrow.

Again i let life take a hold of me and it got my down for a while. Not happy with myself for letting this happen. I think I exhausted myself with how much I had to do in such a short space of time. Things are settling down now, still waiting tor the death certificate and on. Still trying to put everything in place but at least it will be easier now.

So in the last couple of days I have had to get my thinking about me back in place so I can put my plan into action. I need to remember to put ME first. As I am the most important person to me here. I was really not doing me any favours as i was still putting everyone else. Not the sensible thing to do when it is to the detriment to my health.

I need to remember to put me, me, me, me, me first

    I've missed you dear Wendy,
I've thought about you alot while you were gone. I too have had my struggles the last few weeks and it can be overwelming. Take a breath, you might have to take a step or 2 less than where you last were but you can do it. I know you can. You did it before and you WILL do it again. I have faith in you. I want you to be able to reach the top of that water tower and take a picture of the view from the top. You have proven you are emotionally strong for your son. Now do it for YOU! Yes, it will be steep and scary. Putting all that stuff together helping your son after his dad died was hard and difficult too. He needs you more than ever. You need you more than ever too. Hope to hear from you soon. Hope you have a great day. emoticon

    It's funny how we go from "me,me,me" as children, thinking about no one but ourselves, to learning to love and give to everyone else first--to have to relearn that there is a time and place for "me,me,me" that preserves our ability to give!

And that second version is HARD! Ironic, huh.... LOL

Glad to see you getting back on track, sweet lady!

    HI Wendy, some life events do tend to take us over, so don't be too hard on yourself for the fact that it took over for a while. We are waiting for a cool change to come too...no rain expected though - we badly need some! Take it easy and look after yourself now - you deserve it!

Hi everyone, The funeral was today, of course it turned out to be very hot but we had it in the morning. very nice graveside service. A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders, knowing he is buried. He died of heart failure.
Caught up with some of his friends that I haven't seen for many years, that was really nice.Had lunch with them.
Have a appointment with the lawyer in the next couple of days, need to check when that is. LOL I forgot the day, know the time.
I will be glad when I can get back to me. Had two really restful days, needed that.

    PHew, what a relief, huh. I'm glad you had a few restful days. Once that lawyer is taken care of, I thing you'll find that it always takes longer than you expect for things to settle down after this kind of life event... and then it will finally really hit you.

... so take care of yourself and your son. We're here for you, sweet friend!

I am having a very restful day today, so tired and sore. Haven't done a thing only got my breakfast and lunch. Went over my parents and had a game of cards.
Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement. You have all been a tremendous support to me. Funeral is Monday. Still will take time to settle but at least the worst is over.
Today is me day to do what I want and when I want to. LOL
Good frame of mood now.

Changed my background again this is the state of Australia that I live in.

    I love cards! What do you play? I have hearts, spades, pinocle, gin, and solitaire of course, on my iPhone because I don't have anyone to play with. I find them so diverting - it's good for getting your mind off something for awhile.

    emoticon emoticon You certainly deserve the rest. You can still exercise and I hope you entered moving boxes/ furniture as exercise because it still counts. The best exercise now is a nice quite stroll in your favorite spot pending the heat. Be good to yourself, dear lady.
