Thank you TS. Just what I really needed to read right now. I could sure use some avoidance! And the cat litter and poop story was invaluable!
I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

I ask my daughter for fashion advise way too much!!  What can I say she has good taste.
Rigo, quiero cerrar mis ojos y sentir que estas conmigo.
Love you then, now & always.

DD has a load in her pants but I'm letting her stay outside and play at her sand table anyway. If she doesn't care why should I?

My 7yo dd lost a tooth tonight. My 13yo dd helped her pull it out.  That means I had tooth fairy duties because my 7yo still believes. :) I rarely carry cash these days because I always use my debit card. Well, sure enough I check my purse and no cash. What do I do? I grabbed a dollar bill from my 7yo's wallet. She'll never know. I'll sneak her another dollar the next time I have cash.

Virgo I have done the same thing!  If I have cash it's $20 bill from ATM so I have indeed raided his wallet to put his own dollar bill under his pillow!
You will forever be my always.

Being a parent is the only part of my life that I enjoy right now. *wish I was at home with my kiddos right now*

I don't feel like fixing dinner, so I'm thinking about just making scrambled eggs and waffles.  Yet here I sit. Cereal anyone? lol

Could not deal with dinner tonight either.  Let 8 year old make her own - mac and cheese.  It took her an hour.  She used like 50 utensils and dishes but I am all about 8 year olds who can cook, do laundry and take out the trash these days.....

My daughters are 15 (almost 16), 13, and 7 (almost 8.) All more than capable of fixing dinner once in awhile, but it's still left up to me. lol We had scrambled eggs, waffles, and grapefruit.

I confess:

Dinner was a bowl of cereal tonight. I could not be bothered with anything more laborious than that.

I wanna slap my friend round the face for her blithe affect in life (jealous much? Um, helz yeah, I am!). She doesn't make the faintest attempt to understand why I'm struggling with grief. Still. (Like, shouldn't I be over "that" or something??). Um, Google "grief", hooch!

Opportunistic people around me that try to be advantageous of my giving nature and avail themselves of use of my husband's things, or presume I am loaded due to my being widowed. Widowed = windfall, right?

I'm fairly surly tonight.

I ate the following at the little league concession; jumbo hot dog, soft pretzel with nacho sauce, coke - dessert was a freeze pop. Hell compared to some of the crap I've been eating at home, it was a 4 star feast. Pathetic  :-\

There was a lot of breakfast going around last night wasn't there lol. I had breakfast casserole and bacon. Because the meltdown of my dd dying and frying her hair and having to take her senior pictures yesterday was about all I could handle in one day.

We had Open House night at school, which meant a late night for me. I was trying to get things done in my classroom and didn't head home, until after 8:00, so my dinner consisted of 2/3 of a pack of peanut butter crackers, half a Hershey's pie, and a root beer soda. Thankfully, my son had enough sense not to wait on me to get home to feed him. At least one of us ate a decent meal.

Thank you, my dearest Kenneth, for loving me and for giving me the best 13 years of my life.

I finally did what I've always said I'd never do.  Went to walmart in PJ bottoms, a tee shirt and flip flops. Oh and wet hair.  OY!

My kid brushes his teeth about 3 times a week. The fight is exhausting.

I hate being around "normal" people. Am I the only one who notices how conversations are no longer about spouses when I'm in the room.

I have used the "oh, I'm just so overwhelmed" excuse to explain why I don't clean my house. I'm not overwhelmed. I'm under supervised. I don't clean my house because I'd rather play candy crush.
