    Oh, Rats!

    Here it is....2:38am, Monday morning, and I am still up! I've been watching "Dexter" , on Netflix... It helps take my mind off things, but I am so hooked on the show, that I keep promising myself that I will just watch "one more " episode... Right.....

    Tomorrow...or rather today....would have been our 46th. wedding anniversary,... We missed it by twelve days...

    My two kids are taking me to. " our" place tomorrow evening.... Earl loved the wings at the Outback...and the great bread.... I don 't know how I feel about this idea, but they wanted to do it for me...so...

    At the funeral, we noticed (from pictures) that the two of us were dressed in the same clothes we Eire to the Outbavk on our 45th anniversary..... What are the odds of that happening?

    Going to take an Ativan, and try to get dome sleep....

      Prayers for you. It's so difficult. My sister is going through the same thing. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

        I can't imagine you pain right now, I pray that God will wrap you in His loving arms and give you peace and comfort on what should have been a wonderful day with your beloved. You will see him again one day, but until then I hope you can recall all of the joy and love you shared.

          Wishing things could be easier for you but it is a process and just know your quilting friends are here as you go through your difficult days ahead. Gods Blessing.

              My first husband died after 32 years of marriage. I know that you miss him. Keep busy. That helps.

                Sandy, I have been thinking of you. Hope you have a nice dinner.
                I love Dexter also. We need to watch the last 3 episodes.

                  I think it is a good idea to get out especially on this occasion. Earl would want that for you I am sure (although I do not know what your husband was like). Go and celebrate this wonderful memory you have of the two of you.

                        Celebrate with your children and don't feel guilty, he would not want that. Just think, if it was the other way around, you would not want him to sit at home, you would want him to spend this special day with your children.

                          Cyber hugs to all of you! You guys always make me feel a lot better.... It's 9:45, and I got up around eight, so I did get some sleep.

                          You are right.... This is a day that should be celebrated....not mourned.... We will celebrate a marriage that lasted many years, and a man who meant the world to all of us....

                          Learning to be a widow, is a challenge, but I know I can do it.... My sweetheart is still beside me, encouraging me as I struggle to live without him bring physically here.... Learning to take care of the bills, remembering to lock the doors, walking into a house where no one shouts "is that you, Honey?" Thank goodness for the two little dogs... They stick to me like glue....running to meet me every time I return home...and snuggling on my lap everytime I sit or lay down..... They WILL not be ignored....

                          Time to get going... I'm working on organizing my old/new sewing room.... Once I get things into place, I 'll have to start going through my fabrics, and organizing them better.... They have all been moved twice, by people who have no clue about fabrics.. or quilting tools....


                          Wish me luck getting everything organized.... Organization is not one of my gifts... Not even close!

                          Thanks for your continued support....

                              Sandy - I'm very sorry to hear about your husband's death. I keep telling my husband I hope I die first. The thought of losing him is too much to bear. I know he will handle my death much better, so I'm hoping it's me going down that road first. WOW! Forty-six years is pretty significant! How wonderful you had so many years to be together. I hope your outing goes okay. Seems a bit soon to take you there but I understand your children mean well. Once again, my deepest condolences.
