Getting Settled

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
So, we got the house! We finally got the keys almost 2 weeks ago. It's been the craziest two weeks I've ever had in my life! There's been MANY hours of no sleep, a few fights, a few tantrums, and a few "WTF?! Are you serious" moments, but on the whole it's going...well-ish.

The only thing that's sucked, besides not getting any sleep, is moving all my dad's stuff and coming across my mom's stuff. Reality is a bitch, yo! We were unloading the uhaul and came across her leg braces and the bag we brought home from the hospital after she passed. That was not fun. I ran into the bathroom, hoping to make it into the shower before the meltdown started, but I only made it to the bathroom floor. So very glamorous crying on the bathroom floor into a towel that we use to soak up water after we get out of the shower. Dirty came in and let me have my little breakdown and it's been going on and off ever since. Not to mention finals have been this week and we got a puppy. Yeah, no sleep here for me.

My dad has AT LEAST 10 years worth of stuff. Before my mom died, she was the one who made him throw various papers and knick knacks away, he hasn't done ANY of that since before she got sick. Not only does he have years of stuff, he's also acquired MORE stuff. I swear he has 5 entertainment centers and 3 desks, not even kidding! Oh well, we're getting through it, day by day. My lil sis has been here helping, so that's been a plus. I don't think I could handle going through all that stuff, emotionally by myself. I would throw it all away because I wouldn't want to randomly come across it. Reality isn't my strong suit, it's a work in progress.

Having my mom's stuff here is weird, but I'm slowly getting use to it. I don't love it because it still hurts too much, but I'll get there. In the meant time I'm trying to pass my sociology class and try not to kill anyone.

Hope everyone is well. I have a six week vacation starting after my final today and I plan to catch up with everyone!

That sounds really hard to run across your mom's things.

I hope the settling period goes by quickly for you. Hugs.

Moving is so exhausting even when it's not emotionally charged. I hope things get less crazy soon & you enjoy your vacation.

Yay for vacation! I'm glad you are getting a break - you need one!

My dad is the same way - borderline hoarder and I always think about how hard it's going to be when he passes away. I can only imagine how hard it would be with all your mom's stuff in there. Sigh, just when you think it's going okay it hits you hey! Big Hugs to you!! I'm glad you've got Dirty - he's so good to you :)

Now stop reading this and go to bed!
