Where I’ve been was a topic I addressed in a recent post. The short answer is Slovenia. I have done a number of posts about the trip with more to come.
The long answer, aside from my physical location at home, is in the ozone. Well, not literally. Or in a fog. Not literally that, either.
I’ve been juggling a lot of things for a long time, primarily caretaking for various people. After my mom, known as Nana here at TJCM, passed away in May and after the immediate busy-ness of the funeral and the bunch of paperwork and phone calling that needed to happen, I had hoped that I could be more organized and not feeling like my mind is scattered most of the time, but no. At least, not so far.
A friend reassured me that it is still early days, that my sense of clarity will return, but that it takes a long time.
Admittedly, it doesn’t make sense to reorganize my life now anyways. We are in the final weeks of having daughter E and granddaughter ABC in residence. We expect her visa to come through sometime soon and then she will need to move to London within 30 days. I am expecting that, when they leave after 2+ years of living here, there will be another period that is like mourning, too.
So, I guess it may be a long time before I feel like I can think, plan, write, organize, as I used to.
Before I feel like I know where I am going.
