Today I was at Kevin’s. Linda’s kids were there going over things. There is SO MUCH! I think she was a bit of a hoarder! Everything was, “you know, you might need this someday.” She had a nice collection of dolls, but I don’t want anything like that. I just wanted my little DeMarco statue that said friend, a plant, and some odds and ends. Kevin gave me her fitbit. (Didn’t want that going to Goodwill). I am undecided about things. Everything is attached to memories, and makes me cry right now. I might change my mind about some of the clothes, and just put it away for a year. If I feel differently next year, I can wear it, otherwise will donate it then. She had tons of purses, everything! It is so sad. One sees how much of a lifetime is attached to things.
She had a ton of jewelry, Red Hat stuff, etc. I told Kev if he wants to get all the Red Hat stuff together, we can put it on my pool table, and I will have the ladies have at it.
Happy to report that Kevin is doing well. He, too, had been grieving for a long time. He said the house is so quiet. I told him, he might have to put HGTV on for background noise! He is just trying to move on. Linda had a lifetime in that house, so he has much to go through and give away or whatever. He is working, playing cards on Wednesday with his golfing buddies, going out for fish on Fridays at the golf course. Tomorrow he will watch the Packer game with his daughter and her husband at his twin’s house.
I am going to try and get back at the church's scrapbook. I also am trying to get back into Bible Journaling.
This is my latest entry. I was inspired by Jesus' baptism. John 1:29 "Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the World."
This is not typical Wisconsin weather. Two weeks ago, it was below freezing with the wind chill.
Jim could not sell his wildcard tickets, so he and Dan went to the game. The high was 13°
It was an exciting game, against the Lions, but Jim said never again!
They got to the game early and took this selfie.
Monday, we had an ice storm. No fun driving my son to work! He almost fell, and I had to walk him to the door! (I had offered earlier, but he's so independent!)
This week has been rain, rain and more rain. The snow is melting. It is in the 30's and supposed to get to the 40's next week. I think when Old Man Winter comes back, he'll be back with a vengeance!
