Daylights savings time begins again, this time we spring forward, so we lose an hour. I like that it gets dark later now, that is good for me; since I ride the bus, and I hate walking to the bus stop at 6 and it is dark, so this gives me a little more light out. The days are just running into one another, so quickly that I am not able to catch up with things. Next week, it will be 3 months since the passing of my mom, I still cry, last night I had a good cry with my sister. I will be so happy once I can stop crying, and just have that sense of peace and calmness inside of me, no tears, just being able to talk about her, without having to tear up every time. In time, in time it will get there, just have to be patient.
Lots is going on with work, lots of things we are doing, we got in live plants and flowers, and they are selling like crazy, I have been thinking that soon, I will get some. I have been working hard this week.
I have been working on getting my apartment ready to receive my cat princess. I will be getting her a new litter box, and also a new cat tree, so that she will be right at home. Also getting a new sectional and area rug. Once I get that done and situated, I will post photos.
South by Southwest is in town now, not plan on going to any of it, I just do not really have time or patience for it. Anyhoo, life goes on. I at least have Monday off, so will make the best of it. Until the next time friends, enjoy!
One thing she loved doing was riding on the bus, she loved to go to different places, and not have to drive there. She was still learning the city by vehicle, but on the occasions she did not want to bother with the traffic, we would hop on the bus, and take it almost anywhere. She was a real trooper.
My asthma and allergies flared up bad this morning, I was to work today, but decided to call out and head down to the walk in clinic. Where I got some medication for my flare up, they put me on some prednisone, to reduce the inflammation, and I am still able to take OTC mucinex and also do my breathing treatment as well. I have a note that puts me off work for two days, but only going to take today off. I will be back at work in the am. It has been a pretty hard day. I really do not think I could have made it at work today anyway, I am so achy, from all the coughing, I just want it all to stop.
Yesterday made it a solid month since mom has been gone, we made it, teary eyed, and full of memories, but we made it. I made it. I go to church every Sunday with my family, Trying to get back to God, trying to get closer to Him, and His Word. It will take time, but I am committed to doing this.
Another day, another way. Keeping it moving forward.
This photo was the first time mom had gone to The Blanton Museum. It was a fun day after we got there, before it was a little nerve wracking, only because we took the bus, and we walked down to the museum, and I was figuring out which way to turn, but once I righted myself, we were on our way, and she loved it. I never did get a chance to take her to other museums around Austin, but she really did love this one. This is the stacked waters wall she is standing in front of. It was a very fun day indeed.
My mom loved to fish, her and my dad, and all my family, loved fishing. When we found this area in Marble Falls, this was our go to fishing place. We would be there almost every week that we could. Mom had go fever, she was always ready to go, go, go. I love this photo, because it shows her in a place of peace. I loved to sit out there with her and my dad, and just watch them fish. My mom loved to fish.
And so do I… Day by day, as I wake from each one. Daylight gives way to nighttime, and it continues on. Today back to work, for both me and dad. He took off, to deal with social security, and also a doctor’s appointment. He is going to have to keep an eye on his high blood pressure, it was a bit high, and they found he is a little anemic. Bills are getting paid, slowly, and a bit late, but still being paid.
Yesterday, I donated money to a go fund me, for a friend on facebook, who is trying to pay for fees to get to see his little boy. I felt really strong about donating to his fund, I myself had set up a go fund me, to help pay for bills for when mom died, and what I got was very helpful, and it just made me want to pay it forward to someone else that may be in need.
This is true, life does go on, and so do I.
I have decided to post a photo of my mom every week, for 52 weeks, I think it will be a healing process for me of sorts. I have chosen today to do this, I shall see how it all goes, starting something new is always a challenge. I hope I can complete this. Here goes.
I loved this photo, she would love going to lake marble falls, just to feed the ducks, one in particular that we called diaper booty, lol, which was a big goose. I will truly miss those times.
