Now we are trying to renegotiate a new normal in our lives. He sleeps in, I sleep in. Before retirement I would hit the stop alarm, turn the TV on the the news and we would get up. He would fix his bowl of cereal and coffee, and I my coffee and protein bar. He would sit in the living room eating and watching the news. I would go to my chair in the bedroom and turn the TV to Charmed, something I've watched every morning for over 20 years. After a bit it was the bathroom stuff, get dressed, brush teeth, etc. Now it's cockeyed a bit. We get up with no alarm, just a normal gradual wake up. Now it's me with no Charmed, him watching his recorded stuff or on his phone. It's like 8 maybe 9 am and we are still trudging around. He still has stuff to do at the shop, mainly getting the units ready to rent, paint the fence, fix a leak in the roof, stuff like that. I might go and paint, do a little book work, pay some bills, IF I WANT TOO!

Happy Mother's Day
Honestly it has been a weird Mother's Day. I haven't seen my girls but I've talked to them. I also had Snicklefritz stay with us for the weekend and had an awesome time with her. Lives are very busy in our world and I do totally TOTALLY understand. I think it's weird because I am really feeling the loss of my momma today. It's been 17 years but the hurt and loss still creeps up on me at unexpected times, especially on Mother's Day.
