I'm back and tired

There are so many thoughts swirling around in my head. We spent 7 days getting my Mom's house ready for sale, handling legal and financial issues, making donations, visiting another elderly relative and burying my Mom. I took a day of rest and then drove home by myself with a car full of family pictures, family art and mementos.

I'll pass on some of what I learned once I can organize my thoughts.


  1. I understand your tiredness. I lost my sister suddenly in November at the early age of 58. I am executor (she leaves a 24 and 19 year old) and it is hard work.

    1. So sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. It is hard work to be the executor and I'm sure you are also helping your sister's children through this. I was very emotionally tired after 7 days of work, took Saturday off to just visit with my DB and SiL and then drove almost 1200 miles in 2 days. The drive is why I am pooped today I think!

  2. Nice that you took a minute to post after all that; hope you will take some time to yourself now!

  3. Take a little time to heal and rest yourself, you have had an emotional and stressful time x

  4. You are both so kind. It was emotional but there was also the gift of spending so much one on one time with my brother. Hasn't happened for decades.
