New Beginnings

Friday, May 31, 2013

Been working on the house 12 - 15 hrs. a day for the whole month of May, clearing, cleaning and making changes and still not done with my to do list but it's starting to feel more like mine - lots to share soon

    Hi Lynn!
I actually got to see this the other night but was interrupted before I could leave a comment.
Anyway, you know where I'm at right now. Facing the nursing home situation very soon, I'm sure, and trying to take care of all that goes with it ... including selling Mom's house. Had it appraised on Monday, but it will take about two weeks to get the final appraisal in my hands. My Dad built this house and ... well, enough said.

So much emotional torture right now. I have cried the tears of the world ... I have gone off alone and screamed and cried until I have become ill from it all. Even now I am fearful of what this decision making process has done to me, health-wise, and not sure I can survive it, still intact, mentally or physically. A real mess I am this day.

So, you have walked the Green Mile of that decision and all that went with it and goes with it from here on out ...and while no two situations are exactly the same, I look to you as a comforting light, even if comfort does not come until I have exited the dark tunnel that I, too, must now walk.

You have done what you had to do and when YOU determined you had to do it. It is by no other measure or recommendation that such a decision can be made. When coming from others, such advice sometimes seems cold to me, even though I know that it is not meant as such. It's like people who are not emotionally affected by the decision are telling me that it is perfectly acceptable to drop my dog off at the boarding kennel (a dog that I never intend to retrieve). But this isn't a dog - It's my Mom ... (God, it's my Mom and what a traitor I feel like!) and the decision to do what so often becomes necessary is not one that can be understood, not completely understood, by anyone who has not had to face the exact same thing. And, yet, you have faced it. God knows you have faced it and God knows the toll that it has taken on you. But you are determined to survive this, and that, my dear friend, is the light I see in you ... the light so welcomed ... so needed.

Thanks for sharing this! I love you, Lynn!

    First, I love your accent!
Second, (which should be first, but, I really do love your accent) Change Sucks. Good, challenging or otherwise it just sucks suckage.
Third, VIDEOS I used to live off of home reno improvement on Home and Garden Channel like 20 decades ago. I'm looking forward to your videos.
Fourth, I would change everything in the house as much as I could too. I keeps constant reminders at bay.
