Weekly Update

May 13th, 2017 at 07:10 am

I am starting to be able to talk about my Sister without crying. Some nights, I found myself looking at pictures I have of her and listening to messages she left me. One morning as I was getting ready for work, a thought entered my mind. I said, "Let her rest in peace, she is no longer on dialysis three times a week, no longer in the hospital every other month, etc." Ever since then, I think of her often but I am a lot less weepy.

On a financial note, we closed on our refinance loan Monday and just yesterday all funds were disbursed. I am happy about the HELOC is paid for now. The ARM on this loan was going up every other month and it was making me pretty uncomfortable. We do, however, have a mortgage now. I'm not worry about it as we don't have any consumer debt and we are done paying for college. we don't think we'll be paying off this loan quickly as I have in the past because I really want to have substantial cash in the bank to offset any life events.

We are also celebrating my son's college graduation with friends and family next week. We are catering most of the food for the event as I would really like to enjoy our guests and not worry about food preparation.

Well, this is it for today. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and for all of the mother's here, Happy Mother's Day!

    Glad you are doing better. It is tough when you miss someone and the grieving process isn't quick. That's OK. You do what is healthy for you.

    Glad to hear that you are starting to come to terms with your sister's death. You will get there, it's a long road. She will always be a part of you and at least she is in peace now. {{hugs}}
