party of 3

Hi Everyone!

well it's friday. i made it through the week alone at work. and it's only 1/2 day. thank goodness.
i think i've pulled a muscle and it's pulling my rib on of place. it's almost like an actual knife stabbing pain when i move a certain way. i think i did it cleaning out mom's apartment. i can't lay down. which is ok, 'cause i'm not sleeping anyway. so i sat in the chair all night. i'm exhausted. i've got to go have it looked at today, after work. i think i'll call the chiro and see if they can squeeze me in. i sure hope so. it brought me to my knees a few days ago. that's how intense it is. *sigh* something else to deal with.

so my list is short....

ds, up dressed, breakfast, camp
me work -'till noon
call dr
dinner? who the heck knows??
(i've got to get back to my menu planning and grocery shopping.*sigh*)

it's been 4 weeks today. and it's really not getting any easier. i'm barely making it day by day. why? :sad:

i have not been posting because i feel like sad sally. i never have anything good to say. it's been all bad. sorry you guys. i feel like doom and gloom over here. :rolleyes:

i just miss her so much!:angel: my heart is broken. :sad1:

08-07-2009, 06:52 AM
Holly- iot is undersatndable that you are still feeling sad and we cantake it- we love whether you are happy or sad- we stick with each other through thick and thin not just the good times- post and let us do our best to comfort you some- sometimes just getting it out helps and we are all okay with that.

SIOH- good luck with the first day!

Buffy- enjoy the new car

Joyah- good luck with the yard sale

pack and mail color and everyday swaps
work on swaps
graveside service
shopping in town- Joanns, Big Lots, pet store (food), somrthing else i can't remember
kitting for SDV
order photos

Oh Holly my heart is aching for you. I realize it feels like forever but it hasn't. 4 weeks is really a short time to morn someone like your mom.
Don't stay away just cause you feel like a sad sally lean on us that's what we're for. And I can't lie to you all these little mile markers are going to hurt for a while. the holidays and birthdays will be the worst. My youngest was 3 when he lost his MeMe and not a day goes by that he doesn't sleep with the bear she made him. He's 8 and it's a good thing he can't get into this account cause he'd never speak to me again for that comment.
Holly hold on tight to your memories, remember she's not in pain anymore and can freely do all the things she loved, it's been a long week at work and your body is hurting(it's probably telling you to take a nice weekend off and enjoy your DS and DH. Go do something in honor and memory of you mom, make memories for Bubba and you'll come through. time is the only healer and it takes time. Just be glad you don't have my idiot FIL to ruin memories at everyturn. Nan can tell you I had to vent to her one day it was so bad! (and now I'm considering a restraining order.) Remember your Mom loves you and is very proud of you she knows you're hurting but she'd also want to see you smile!
Hugs my friend and please don't try to keep your grief to yourself we are here for you.

08-07-2009, 08:05 AM
Joyah, you worded that so well.

Holly, I hope you feel you can turn to us. Don't keep these feelings in, you need to talk about it. Of course you feeling terrible, you love your Mom very much. You were blessed to have her not only as your Mom but your best friend too.

Please call the dr as soon as the office comes in. You need to be well physically so you can take care of yourself emotionally.

Your Mom is with you, in your heart and in your memories. Are you writing all of it down? Bubba is going to want to read it some day and it will help you.

We are here for you honey.:hug:

08-07-2009, 09:50 AM
Mom's with you Holly, and we love you happy or sad! Please don't stay away, this is a place you can talk about it all!

I'm at work. Had an okay day at the beach yesterday. It was a bit overcast, but that was fine, because it would have been too hot if it hadn't been. Morgan had a BALL in the water with her cousin, they buried each other in the sand, played on the boogie board, and just had a fun fun time.

I'm exhausted, the bed was too short, the room was so flippin' hot with no air moving through the windows, Morgan is a mover and a shaker all night long and she sleeps HOT and she got up at 5:56 (but she was awake and woke me up around 5:00 am). It was a rough night. I had to count mile markers to make it back safely on the drive though! Last night was much better at home, I have to work all stupid day, but I'm going to Joann's after work for fun stuff!

Hope everyone has a great day!

08-07-2009, 12:17 PM
HUGS to you Holly - my heart aches for you. I hope the chiro is able to help you out. I wish I could come give you a hug.

Buffy - how is the new car!!?


DD up to feed and exercise her pig
Breakfast for everyone
DDs dressed
Start laundry
Dishes Away
To horse barn - DD to ride - I have to clip her horse
Grocery store?? - getting to be slim pickins around here
Drop drycleaning??

Horse barn is in Madera - usually run errands on Fresno side - hmmmm - guess maybe I will go to town after DH gets home tonight and do grocery shopping. Best go find something in the freezer to dig out. At least here on the ranch there is always beef in the freezer.

Everyone have a great Friday!! It seems some of you are cropping - what is everyone else doing!!? And am I the only one out here on the West Coast!!??

08-07-2009, 09:11 PM
Car is good, it took forever though!! Then we went to the chiro, I cold not sleep last night I hurt so bad. We had to do 3 different positions to get it adjusted. And we went out for Thai food.
Didn't get much done but that's ok, there is always tomorrow.

Lisa, I told the kids about mucking stalls if they make messes, DH said the second person to spill anything has to muck them barefoot! LOL

I wonder if they know how much manure sticks in the hot weather. :rotfl2:

Can't wait to see your pretty ride tomorrow. :)

The dentist went very well, very, very well. That kid always makes a liar out of me. LOLWe did go out to breakfast beforehand with Grandma. DD did so well, it's the last day of school, Grandma and I were talking, DD was finished with her breakfast and signed that she wanted ice cream, how could I say no. :confused3 Grandma and I had another cup of coffee and DD had her coffee ice cream. :goodvibes The dentist said whatever we did we should do the next time. Hey, doctor's orders are doctor's orders. :worship:

08-07-2009, 10:08 PM
DD went out to eat with you??? OMG! I would have cried!
My baby really is changing isn't she?
