When Did I Become the Adult

Back in December, I alluded to the fact that there was a tragedy that happened. It really rocked me to my core. First, my best friends mother passed away from lung cancer on December 1st. Then, 3 weeks later, her husband died on Christmas Day. They did not discover he had passed until the 27th. We got there right as the coroner was leaving. It was a very disturbing discovery to say the least. That's how I came to foster the kittens. My friend has a senior cat that would not be able to tolerate the "kids" and they are only 3 months younger then Bogey. They have totally bonded with. Bogey :-)

Needless to say, it was earth shattering for D. Fortunately, we have a good group of friends that helped with the moving and closure of their residence. It was an eye opening experience for me and it also prepared me for what I will need to do when the time comes. There are so many details to attend to!

We put together a memorial for both of them last Sunday. I wrote the obit for D and got the word out for her. We went shopping and a lot of people brought food too. It turned out beautiful and I was so glad there was a big turn out. I got pretty emotional though and left in the afternoon. I did not want to upset D so I felt it was better to excuse myself.

I know that I am an adult and have dealt with adult things but it seems like all of a sudden we became the next generation. Being in charge of my moms affairs and then helping D has really made me feel stronger about how I'm handling my life and affairs.

My weight is still in a holding pattern. Still 255 which I have been for way too long. While I'm glad I'm maintaining, I really need to start focusing on weight loss again. I recently lost my Fitbit so I upgraded to the Fitbit One. I will do a full review soon but it has the same capabilities as the previous version but this one updates via Bluetooth to both my laptop and my phone! Up to the minute data helps makes make it easier to know how to manage the calorie bank.

I miss you all tons and wish I could blog regularly like before but I can't seem to get in a grove with it. I know I am better emotionally when I can come here and vent. Thanks for sticking in there with me.

Until next time...


  1. I know what you mean about having to be the adult. My dad passed away two weeks ago and I have had to deal with everything because my mom can't handle it all. It has been very difficult and hard. I don't want to be the adult! Cute kitties :).

  2. Beautiful kitties! I love their fur.

    I'm 33 and yes, that's still young, but I am learning lately what it MEANS to be an adult. I've always been responsible and more mature for my age. And yet, I'm just NOW realizing that life isn't fair, things don't always go the way you want them to and "free time" often = chores around the house!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
