Things I Do Differently Now

Monday, February 11, 2013

There are many things that I do differently now. Some by choice and some because that is just the way life is now. They are:
1: I eat alone most nights
2:I sleep alone
3: I sleep on the opposite side of the bed from where I slept before Oct. 2, 2o12. This is by choice so that I don't reach across the bed for Ed.
4: I mix my own martinis now when I have one. Ed used to do this and we enjoyed a cocktail together
5: I do laundry once every couple of weeks unless my daughter brings laundry to do here and puts mine in with her laundry. Before I did a couple of loads a week.
6: I don't look forward to comng home when I have gone out either for a walk or for some other reason.
7: I don't have my grandboy and grandgirl spend the night with me now and I miss that but I can't do it by myself because of Keegan's Asperger's Syndrome
8: I recycle now. My neighbor said that I could use his recyle bin; so, I recyle cans and newspapers now
9: I cry a lot and I rarely cried when Ed was alive but laughed a lot with him
10: I don't laugh very much now

Just ten things on this list but I will add more as time goes by, I am sure. Just tonight I think that ten is enough.

    I'm so very sorry that your dealing such sadness. I don't know your situation, but if the grandkids make you happy maybe you could stay with them for a night or two. I hope this is easier as time passes and it sounds as if you have many happy memories to cherish. emoticon
