Life

Hello all. I don't have much to say today actually. I just wanted to put up a post to let you guys know I haven't forgotten about you and that I am still making my rounds to your blogs.

Life here at Casa De Diva has been pretty standard as of late. I just go to work and come back home. Getting back to my normal work routine has been good for me these days. I did go to the movies and lunch and shopping with a good friend of mine this weekend and I really needed that so it was great fun.

I've also been dealing with tying the loose ends of my mom's affairs. It hasn't been easy but things are actually OK. I've had so much support from family and friends that it has been overwhelming. I am truly blessed.

I've never been one to just call folks and keep up with them unless you were in my intimate circle of friends. I probably talk to them almost every day. lol With so many family members reaching out I really need to do better about keeping in touch with them. I acknowledge that keeping up with people has never been my strong suite but I asked God to help me get better with that. I really appreciate my family and I want them to know that so I really need to get on the good foot.

On other fronts, I've been wrapping my head around my eventual move to Atlanta. I know I've mentioned this before but now I can really start to make that happen. It won't be for several months because I still have to tie up mom's affairs and all but I am hoping that I can be down there by the end of the year unless God has other plans that is.

I hope all is well with you guys, How was your weekend? I want details!

Finding that degree of 'normalcy' is a good thing... take time to honor and reflect on your Mom and your memory of her...

The absolute worst time in my Life followed the death of my Dad...

Take as long as you need... there is no hurry... really...

I read someplace a good while back a list of things that are mega issues in the stress columns and can often result in depression. One was death of a close family members, unemployment was another and I recall too that making a major move could create issues along those lines too. I know you've thought of this move thing for sometime now but I got a little concerned when you mentioned the move again in this post. That is until I saw that it won't come about too quickly, thus giving you a bit more time to adjust and adapt to all the circumstances surrounding you.
I was also glad to hear you have been getting a lot of support/help from family members and that is a really important thing -as you noted. Keep 'em all close to you as much as you can as it really is important and does often come in handy when things like this happen.
Peace and hope you are able to finagle a way to get your move done as seamlessly as possible.
