Affairs in Order

I am staying SO BUSY getting Steve’s affairs in order. There are so many loose ends to tie up. Seems like whenever the mail comes there’s an account I need to call and take his name off.  So many things I haven’t thought of! The funeral home was kind enough to call me in for a meeting to make sure I knew about some of the things that need to be done. For example, the Social Security Administration will send me a $255 death benefit if I just ask. Who knew?
crock potIn a previous blog I mentioned that I want to start cooking again. I got some great ideas from readers, then one of my friends brought over a crock pot and a cook book! Really, I have some great friends. Thanks Sharon! I went shopping, I mean really shopping for food to cook for the first time since Steve got sick. It was the first time in a long time where I wasn’t in a big rush to get back home. I walked down every aisle slowly. I bought a bunch of stuff that will go in the crock pot or be on hand. I gotta say, I got tearful in the store. It’s funny how some things just bring back poignant memories. Not that shopping is poignant, but Steve and I often went to the store together and I missed him. I never know when the grief will hit. Even at the grocery store!
