Things get better slowly
Sunday, July 28, 2013
I accidentally left my gympact set to work out 6 days this week. So even with all the stress of my dad dieing I have managed to workout 6 days this week mostly walking. Everyone keeps telling me I look like I have lost weight. It's this great new diet called grieving, please don't try it! It's weird cuz I haven't really been eating that great. But someone up there is giving me a metabolic pass it seems. Thanks to whoever that is, I appreciate it. Every other time in my life besides this, if something this stressful would have come. I would have turned to food to feel better and started shoveling it in. But this time I have really turned to walking and exercise to get me thru and make me feel better. Live and learn and put it to work, I guess.
It's amazing how every step of this process has been hard. I knew when someone died it would be horrible but all of the other stuff that goes along with it can be even worse. Like the hospital lost my dads wallet, they are doing an investigation. The guy who does investigations evidently works hardly at all. So waiting for him to come in and get on that is still a question, kinda need that stuff. Getting a death certificate, they told me that can take 60-90 days. You kinda need those to close any of his accounts and since he had a business, we are like stop stopped in our tracks completely. Today his Bonsai club leader if coming over to look a his collection and hopefully take some. Or just tell me what they are, that would be nice as well.
Funny thing is when all of this stress has been happening good has happened too. I am too blind to be happy though. Like I managed to get a job, it starts the week after next. Also my health card arrived and we can get pregnant finally and be covered for maternity. Funny how the stuff you are waiting around to happen suddenly gets very small when tragedy strikes.
