This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Carol.... Hi I'm doing ok thx for asking but I know what you mean getting tired especially with granddaughter, but how nice. Nice you & Marsha live near each other! It's been hot here too! Yes, I think you will like the movie & the book I sure did for everyone who didn't read the movie is called "The Shadowlands" w/anthony hopkins famous professor in England Oxford & Cambridge he also wrote many children's books even though he never had children!! of course he was one himself!! LOL!!! I just admire him so much.. he passed away around 1960 & still has such influence! Google his name that's where I learned alot about him he & his brother were roomates & he also took care of his buddy's mom after the War (his buddy got killed) & he promised him he would take care of his mother
his buddy's mom actually lived with him in a huge house hows that for taking good care of her??
Theresa .. all counseling is free from me. Now if I could only take my own advice I could be doing better, but trying hard to center myself like we are all doing. I find I'm either nil of energy or suddenly I race around like a demented elf here and there and I am practicing slowing down yet getting done what I have to do. I don't like feeling dependent on others either and I think all of us feel that way. I find I am getting more independent all time and so will you. I'm proud of you for keeping as busy as you are doing. Keep a journal every day and you'll begin to realize just how much you are doing during your time of grieving and it will shock you.
Theresa .. I am so sorry you fell and that's something all of us have to watch. I'm in the same situation you are because if I hurt myself there is one to look after me either. Not a nice feeling.
It's normal to have bursts of energy and then we find ourselves racing around doing far too much. Please try to pace yourself and don't take on too much at one time. Look after YOU!
Carol ... It's been a lot hotter where you live, but even where I am it's so hot I've been 'flashing' the on-coming traffic just to catch a breeze and it's one ugly scene! Look for me on Global News! LOL Suppose to be cooling down by tomorrow so here is hoping .. me widdle bawd can't take much more of this. LOL
Hope all is well with you.
Love & Hugs
Thank you Carol, for your input. I have been feeling very emotional, lately, and have decided that this is not the best frame of mind or spirit for making serious decisions. There is no hurry about making a choice. I will keep your suggestion in mind.
Thanks too, for your good wishes.
