I Love You, Mom, Rest in Peace
My Mom passed away on Tuesday early morning. Didn't go to work that day after I got the tearful call from my brother and, after picking up some groceries, spent most of the day at home, hibernating and processing.
Went in to work Wednesday, which was pretty tough, but okay. Was planning to go in yesterday, then my car broke down, and I had to take it into the shop for a repair. My air conditioner will have to be non-functional for now (versus a $900 replacement), but it's running well.
SB was helpful and comforting on Tuesday night. We are still seeing each other, and the other guy has gone by the wayside. He was too unavailable and unresponsive.
Anyway, I'm making it through okay - it's so strange how you can see evidence of how alive they were not long ago, like in texts and on Facebook, but now they are gone and that's hard to reconcile. But would appreciate your prayers and thoughts for my family, especially my Dad. They were married for almost 40 years.
