Coming home

Most of the loose ends dealing with my Mom's estate (if you can even call it that) have been taken care of. That allows me to return home as there are no other papers that I need to sign and all of decisions have been made.

We held a service at Piper's house on Friday, then we received the death certificates on Saturday which allowed us to begin notifying all of her creditors and the California State Teacher's Retirement System to have them stop her retirement payments. There were many others that we contacted as well.

We received Mom's ashes on Tuesday and we will be burying her cremains tomorrow. There will just be my grandmother, Paige's family, Piper's family, and me at graveside.

I will be flying out on Saturday morning and heading home.

I've tried to write this entry a few times and it keeps coming out clinical. I don't know why I can't seem to include my emotions and feelings into this entry. I wonder if it is a sort of safety mechanism keeping me shielded from the reality of it all.

*cough, cough*

I think my cold is on the way out. I feel a whole lot better even though I'm now sneezing and coughing. I like when I sneeze. It gives me about 2 minutes of easy breathing.

I slept a lot today. I crashed on the couch when I came downstairs right after waking up, and after I fell back asleep (10 minutes later), I only stirred a couple of times as people walked by me. I finally woke up at 12:30 in the afternoon.

I'll even feel better once my nose stops running. It's running faster than my tongue can lick it. J/k ;)
