Apr 01, 2012It's 7:30 a.m. I am sleepy and tired (and today I get the distinction). Technically I am off work this week. I want to go back to bed. But my to do list is long. I have to:
1. Go with my stepdad to see cemeteries because the one the funeral home recommended has terrible reviews.
2. Take mom's clothes and jewelry that we want her buried in to the funeral home.
3. Call my financial planner and see what heavily protected funds I can rob to pay for this whole thing.
4. Link up the people who expressed that they want to help with something with something they can help do
I know they say take it one step at a time, but damn. There are a lot of steps. I will do them for my mother because I love her and I want her homegoing to be a loving event. But if I am being completely honest, I don't think my closure will even begin to come until I can just lie down in quiet, stare at my blue wall and process.
