Weekly Update

June 27th, 2017 at 03:07 pm

Today marks the third month without my sister. It is very difficult not being able to talk to her but I've come to accept her death. Grieving is a very strange thing; sometimes there is complete calmness in my heart and there are days in which the storm never seems to end. Anyway, she will always be in my heart.

I am also participating in the Uber Frugal Challenge in July (see details at Frugalwoods.com). I just want to force myself to make meals out of things we already have in the freezers and pantry. Way too many things in there that need to be eaten. I want to be able to reach 74% mark on on our lofty savings goal by then end of August. We're at 71% as of today.

We've been busy bees on the house front. We are cleaning windows and screens, power washing the siding and porch deck, landscaping, etc. I'm taking advantage of my hubby who is on vacation this week.

This is all of I have to tell you today. Patient Saver, Thriftorama, please know that I'm thinking of you.

    I totally understand the bewilderment felt by loss of a much loved sister. My much loved SIL passed away a bit more than a year ago and I still react to some notions, wanting to phone and tell her my latest quandary! I've read enough to understand the seven steps of grief but I continue to stumble over...'it's not fair.'
    Very interested in your July experiment with Frugalwoods. I am such a coward and DH makes snide remarks if we've had 'make-overs like pilaf or jambalaya more than once in a pay cycle. Would you make a meal plan or pick a product [can/package/frozen item] to base a day's meals? Do you make stew or soup from small portions anytime rain is forecast?

    I was just talking to a lady today who put her husband in assisted living. She is at a loss at this point because so much of her life was tied up with his care and although she visits him regularly and does things for him, she just feels like something is missing. We felt that way after my mother-in-law died after 18 months of battling cancer and many visits and doing stuff for her. The night of the day she died, DH and I weren't sure what to do with our time. I am sorry for your loss.
