Kentucky Summers

Friday, June 11, 2010
Summers in Kentucky feel like you're wrapped in and breathing through a thick, wet blanket. Ick. The humidity is almost unbearable. Gotta love summer. :)

DH (that's dear husband for those that don't know) and I made some pretty big decisions last night.  We had a really nice, long talk about everything that's happened, the whys and why nots, the grieving process and healing, and even the future. We find it very therapeutic to talk.  We always feel so much better.  I think the healing has begun.  I honestly don't think either one of us will ever be "healed" but we're on the road to recovery.  Now if I could just get this blood pressure back under control we'd be golden!  I have a feeling I will have to battle this for the rest of my life. Thanks a lot, pre-e.

Next week I have to call the funeral home again. I've been dreading this.  It's time to pick out Josey's headstone.  I think I already know what I want, but having to go through the act of actually picking up the phone and calling and then going to the funeral home isn't on my things I wanna do list.  But, it has to be done.  Once it's all finished, I'll take a picture and post it for everyone to see.

Well, back to work. Break time is over. Happy Friday!


  1. We put that off until the last minute too. It sucks, but I'd be happy to show you a picture of what we did if you'd like. (Since our daughter is buried in a national cemetery we didn't have a whole lot of options, though.)

    I'm glad you feel like you are doing better. There will still be bad days and good days, but it seems like the bad days become fewer over time. I look back and am amazed with how far we've come in the past 8 months.

  2. Good for you. Sounds like things are getting a little better for you. I sure hope so. Think about you often and still read your blogs.
