Today has been a really up-and-down day.
I was able to go shopping with hubby today, and some other errands, whereas yesterday I couldn't have walked the length of myself, let alone done any driving.

Our new fridge/freezer is in place, and plugged in, and - well, no, we haven't been able to hang the doors on the other side, yet - major problems, resulting in me on my hands and knees, and on my stomach, on the kitchen floor, trying to deal with screws at floor level. Hubby can't get down on the floor, so I have to do that bit despite my arthritis and other problems - it's still easier fir me to get down there. But then, next day, I'm fit for nothing.
Problems have been worsened this time because I'm still recovering from a fall a few weeks ago where I sprained 1 ankle and damaged the other knee a wee bit again.

Today I managed to go into town with hubby for a variety of errands, though still limping on both legs.
Got in a load of shopping, and got it put away in the new fridge freezer.
Made a very quick meal.

Then a wee while ago I got a phone call from a cousin, telling me that my youngest cousin died at the weekend. The funeral is this coming Saturday.
A very few minutes after that phone call, I got another phone call, from my brother this time. I haven't heard from him since last January. But give him his due, he was phoning to see if I'd heard from our older cousin. But beyond that - we had a nice chat, and caught each other up with our kids' achievements.

Like I said - a day of plus and of minus, mentally.
Now - I need to get stuff done to get the sitting room ready for tomorrow morning's bible discussion group.
And I need to go to bed, try to sleep, but at least relax.

I'm obviously feeling a bit down, tonight, just now.
Tomorrow, I'll be better, mentally and emotionally, and ready to get on with stuff, again.

    I'm sorry for you loss. It's good to know that you need to relax and that tomorrow will be better. It's good that you can write all of this down (way better than emotionally eating..Like I used to do!). Somehow we get through the hard times, hope this one goes as well as it can for you.
