Trying to move on

Since my mom passed I have been going thru her things and it has made me realize how much STUFF! she and I both have. I can only weed thru her things a few days a week without breaking down and crying. Crying like I am now just writing this. If you read my blog you know I have done some weeding of my stuff…purses mostly. Well I am “TRYING” to go thru my things also. Since I do crafts I notice that I keep a lot of things because I could use this to make something! So my first step is not to BUY anything that I don’t actually use, need or eat. And it has been hard. I LOVE those solar dancers. I have stopped BUYING THEM!
I went thru my socks, nylons, pj’s & other items along that line. I am starting on shoes! My weakness in shoes are FLIP FLOPS from the $1.00 tree. So I wear a different colour every week! I went thru my heels and the ones that hurt my feet went to good homes.
My mom has a tons of shoes….well at least I come by that naturally! She wore a size 6 to 6 1/2 I wear 7 1/2 wide! Thanks Dad! So there is no temptation to keep her shoes!
My long term goal is to keep and use what I have and to only buy what I need. The crafter/artist in me is screaming! NO but I will just have to do more craft fairs so the stuff I buy for my crafts will be sold as a craft. I have a craft fair next month and I am sewing up a storm…well a light drizzle!

Thanks for letting me vent.

Long weekend

My mom had surgery Friday and it went fine, now she just has to wait until her drainage tube runs clear so they can remove it and she can go home. I am at work today, but I have friends that are going to stay with her during the day and then I will go to the hospital after work.

Bye July

July has been a busy month for me. My mom has had a lot of dr appts and next month will be busy also as she will be having lung cancer surgery. It’s just 1 small spot, which is great since my mom is 81 has been smoking since she was 15, but surgery is surgery.
Hopefully the dr wont find any cancer in her lymph nodes and she recovers fast.
With all the going on my work place is moving to our new building in October, but the building is still being worked on. The Boss Lady is having us move by floor. My dept and several others will be on floor 7. So that should be fun (insert snarky voice here)! However I try to not to borrow worry and whatever happens in October will happen.
So bye July and Hello August!
