It's like the cracken was released again !
Still can't get my hair done but they are letting people have elective surgeries as long as they don't have to stay overnight and our indoor flea market where I have a booth is now open again. Had to cancel my doctor and dentist appointments for now. I'm just not comfortable with that yet.
The restaurants are going to be the last to open and then there will be 6' distance between tables and booths. I just hope we don't get another surge of it and screw everything up all over again. All the people who have started getting their unemployment will have to re-apply and it was hard for some to even get it in the first place. This has sure been a learning lesson for us all.
Yesterday it was beautiful weather-wise ..we got the goldfish out of the barn and into the outside pond. It was 70 degrees and today it's in the 50's and COLD!!! This weather is as screwy as the virus! Still processing mom's passing. I know it's going to be a long while before I can move on. Right now, my lawyer is supposed to be filing her will with probate so I'm in a standstill with trying to sell her house . And with the virus I haven't been able to have the estate sale just yet so I'm in a holding pattern. It's costing me money to keep the insurance on her house ( Beth, when your dad died did you continue to pay the insurance on his place ? ) I don't know what to do. Tom says since mom was on Medicaid I had to keep "their asset " insured but now that she's gone he doesn't think I need to insure it. I asked my lawyer but he hasn't responded just yet. This is the kind of stuff that keeps my mind busy at night. and her water and gas have been shut off but the electric is still on. UGH !! Oh well, it will get resolved sooner or later. I called the nursing home to thank one special nurse for taking care of her and she says no one has the virus there, not even the help. Still can't go visit and only family who has a resident who is dying is allowed to visit. They moved everyone down to one hall and left the other hall free just in case they get some Covid 19 patients but so far so good. I told my nurse to tell my mom's old roommate I would visit her when I could. She was a good roomate for my mom and watched her like a hawk. When she was dying I asked her if it upset her to have mom in the room and I would have her moved if it did and she said, " No, I want her here with me, she was my friend and I can handle it". She sat with me on the side of mom's bed . Tom says he and I are now orphans. I know the grieving process is messed up because I didn't get to have the right kind of funeral for her with normal calling hours etc... I watch shows at night and something that is said will cause the tears to flow. Blanche on the Golden Girls said when her dad died, : Now I'm nobody's little girl anymore" and I cried my eyes out. It's things like that that get to me right now. I'm 66 yrs old and I was still mom's little girl. She'd see me coming down the hall and she'd say, " Here comes my girl !" That was before she lost her memory of who I was.
Sorry for going on like this. I guess I just needed to vevt a little.
