Happy Spring everyone. I hope this post finds you guys getting excited about the warm months ahead. I know I am looking forward to the warmer weather. Here in Georgia, we have already had days that reached 75 degrees which is my happy temperature.
There is a lot going on in my life at this point in time. 2 1/2 weeks ago, the youngest of my three older brothers died. He was only fifty-six years old. It is believed that he had a heart attack and he went quickly. I like to believe that, even though I sometimes have my doubts.
My brother and I were very close. He was a lot older than me and lived in the house when I was growing up. He took on a lot of roles that should fall under the "dad" category. There are many things that I had when I was a kid that would not have been possible if Cullen hadn't been there to help mom pay for bills. Cullen was the type of brother that bought a Surface 3 for over $900, decided he didn't like it, and just gave it to me. He was a generous person and we loved him. He will be missed.
I am still recovering from this loss. I have days where I am fine and then moments where something hits me out of the blue and I break down in tears. I find that I function better when I stay busy so I have been keeping myself occupied. There is definitely a lot to do and my task list grows longer every day.
At this moment, I have two houses that I am trying to take care of. We are currently cleaning out my mom's house and I am trying to keep my house clean as I bring things that I would like to keep from mom's house to mine. Once her house is cleared out, it will need a lot of work. My husband and I have already started compiling a list of the many things that will have to be done before we can move in. It will be nice to go from renting to a house that is paid for, but it will take some work.
This stuff is pretty much consuming my life at the moment. I am doing some reading and watching a few YouTube vids here and there. I am going to be so behind once I get a chance to sit down and catch up. If I didn't have my planner, I would be completely lost because there are moments that I can't remember what I should be doing. It's a lot.
I hope that all is well for everyone and I will be back to drop a post when I can. Take care and happy sunshine filled days.
