Spring Cleaning

At least, I hope. There were those 2 (or was it 3 after all) drawers, and I got rid of the dust bunnies (more like ponies) behind the television. So, as I often say, there is that. I am attempting to pitch and sort and decide...because I don't know what to do or where to go right now. I just know that this was our house,and yet I cannot think of it as my house. I don't think I can go on here without him. But, the sifting through of our life (too short) together is too much to contemplate at some points, and not so bad at others. Tears are threatening so I'm going to cut this short. I miss running around, visitng blogs. Perhaps I will do that tomorrow.

Don't think about it all at once; it's too much for anyone to bear. One drawer at a time is enough; it's plenty good, as a matter of fact. Hugs to you.

Whatever you can do ,at any given moment is enough, It truly is.

Do what you can when you feel you are able. Hannah's room is a disaster area because we go in, we visit, we leave. We haven't done ANYTHING with her "stuff", and quite frankly, the thought of getting rid of any of her "stuff" is anathema. Anything we haven't figured out what to do with gets put (sometimes *thrown*) in her room.

Until I'm ready, that's how things stand. Some days I can look at her "stuff" and smile, other times I feel it's my last connection to her. Do what feels right, friend, and don't force it.

Many HUGS!

Don't force yourself to do anything. Whatever you can bear is perfect for you. Like RachD has said many times their is no right or wrong way to work your way through this. Do what works for you! I don't think there is a single person who reads your blog that is not incredibly proud of you and honored to call you a "friend." I know I am.

Hi Laura,
Thinking about you. "dust ponies" is cute! I think I understand the always "our house" feeling. Sending you hugs.

I don't know what I would do. It's terrible to think about just you doing it. I'm sorry.

Artemisia said...

I think the advice from others to just take it one little space at a time - and when the time feels right TO YOU -- sounds best.

Hugs.

I can't imagine how that must be to sort through his stuff. Do what you can when you are ready.

Like the others say, maybe a little bit here and there is all you can do if you are ready.

Thinking of you.

I have dust ponies in my house too. Just take it little by little, do what you can and the rest will wait.

Jeanette said...

Take your time and do what you can when you can. No rush. Thinking of you!

One piece at a time if that is all you can do. Only you can determine your pace. Sounds like you are doing fine.
