Worn Out…

Spent the day with friend KD and his GF. I’d never met J and needless to say, I’m pretty sure she thinks I’m crazy at this point. Which is okay, cause I kinda am! She seems very nice.

We managed to get funeral arrangements made and obituary *mostly* written. These things are hard.

Picked out the music for the viewing and the service which will be Saturday. It’ll be a bit, to me, non traditional. And that’s all right.

________________________________________________________________


I haven’t spent much time thinking about what happens when I die, but I’m thinking I want to be cremated and scattered somewhere I like, or that is interesting to me. And not too soon right?

I’m worn out. I need to get out at some point though and take care of some things today. Not sure I have clothing (that I can wear) that is appropriate for a funeral.

Holiday time is a helluva time to die.

________________________________________________________________


And I’m seriously tired today.. bleh. They exhausted me.

I want to be cremated and scattered in the mountains. This sounds like a hard thing. Who died? :(

This IS a hard thing. Friend KD's mother passed. She was in her mid 80's.

Oh wow. You are a very good friend to help him and be so involved with all that. :)

He asked. I answered.

So here we go...

I don't envy the man the next few months. But he has to be feeling some sense of relief as well.

I know he was exhausted from dealing with his mother's illness, in home care, in hospital care, and finally in hospice care. He's got a bunch of stuff to clean up. It's gonna take a while.

I would imagine he does feel relief. It's hard to care for someone through a long illness no matter how much you love them. He was a good son. :)

It's a hard thig to do. It would take it out of you. Rest well, and tomorrow is a new day! I hope you can find appropriate wear. It's a heck of a time to try to go shopping.

Shopping wasn't too bad, although expensive.
