After one of those wild up and down days to which we are all subjected to now and then, today was smoother.
My daughter in law and her sisters spent the day at their mom's apartment and with the funeral home getting some of the more pressing details underway. Her mother had already purchased a site beside her husband, so that part was taken care of. They took care of the perishable foods, and made decisions about the furnishings. All the girls have plenty of furniture of their own, so much of it except for special or especially useful pieces will be going to charities.
I guess it affected me a bit more than I thought it would as her mother and I are close in age. It certainly made me stop and think. I didn't get much exercise in yesterday but I got some in, and even more today. My daughter in law wanted to fix dinner tonight with some of the things from her mom's, so she did. It was a pretty carbohydrate heavy meal, but it won't be that way tomorrow. Although it was not the balance we would normally have, I figure it is a blip, and it isn't something I can expect to happen all the time. At least, I'm going to make sure it is a blip!
Tomorrow will be another day, and I am determined that it will also be a day filled with healthy choices.
