I started this heart quilt as a gift, but I don't know about that now. I am tired, and I keep starting projects (all types), getting frustrated and upset. I cry too much. I have a grief support group meeting tomorrow (not tomorrow-SUNDAY at 4:00-try to remember this time). It is good for me, but I missed last week's meeting. I was shopping after church and lost track of time.
Church was no fun last Sunday. The minister imitated the shaking of a Parkinson's patient to illustrate a point about a sick man, and, since my husband shook uncontrollably until he died, and later we found out he had Parkinson's perhaps for as long as three years, I tried not to cry, but ended up leaving in tears.
I know it will get better. Along with the depressed time, I also have good times. Most of those involve buying shoes though. I've lost weight, so I can wear heels again. I have thrown out lots of my old clothes and I need a new suit to wear to a meeting on Monday. I guess that means I will make a trip to the Mall again soon.
Oh, and also on my bucket list is a trip to the beach. I need to walk on sand and play in water. Or will that make me too sad?????
