Mother’s Day came and went and with that my mom turned 87years old. My sister Len made my mom her first birthday party. The whole family was invited. We had the party in my mom’s backyard. Most of the family came. It was so wonderful to see everyone without going to a funeral. This was fun. It was a long trip for me as I had to drive to California, but well worth it.
In the past couple of months, I have made adjustments to my everyday life. Joined a couple of groups to socialize and meet new people. It has been fun, but I also enjoy my days alone at home.
I am preparing some items so I can have a yard sale and my friend Barb is helping me. It feels out of sorts for me but getting out of my comfort zone is good for me. Completing all important documents has been a task but feels good to finally finish it all.
Question for my fans, would you like me to talk instead of writing? Would doing a live video of my conquests be better for you? I enjoy writing and am shy in front of a camera. So let me know.
My days are filled with cooking new recipes and getting rid of things around the house that I no longer need. Living and being alone doesn’t require things such as cooking utensils, home essentials, etc.
When the days are quiet and I start thinking about the past, I journal. Writing my feelings and thoughts helps to pass the emotions. It gives me a sense of self and continuing with my life. I do feel comfortable being alone, now. At first, I missed the talks, conversations, kisses, and outings. Being with someone that you love can take a life of its own. Now being alone I have to take my life on its own. It's scary sometimes but not being alone with someone else can be scary. It's an opportunity for me to find myself again. I don’t remember a time in my life being alone until now.
