Having to start life without him
May 29, 2017 8:07am CST
Well it has been 21 days since my husband accident and 13 days since his funeral. Family has all went back home and back to their lives. I am left to figure out how to live life without him. I am so grateful and thankful for the friends I do have they have been by my side ever since. My neighbor and I started out as neighbors and through this have become very close friends. They have been my rock through all this. I've been thinking about what to do from here. Im waiting to hear back if the people that own the house the we are currently renting will sell it to. If they do then thats what I plan on doing and upating a few things and doing the yard up like my husband and I had often talked about. If for some reason it doesnt work out then I will start looking for something to buy. That was one of our goals and something he wanted for us more than anything. We had decided that we would stay for the lenght of lease and if it all worked out buy it if not starting shopping around. I have that much sorted out everything else Im just not sure yet. This week I guess I am going to try and get back into some sort of routine for the kids and I. It helps if I stay busy I am ok during the day but night time is when it's really hard. Thank you all so much for all your kinds words of support it really means a lot to me.

Just take one day at a time. It is not going to be easy but you and your kids will find a routine that works for all of you.

You are very strong and courageous. Keeping busy will help a lot in moving forward. Take things one step at a time. Remember to ask for help when you need it, and make sure you have people to talk to often. The grief and pain may not go away completely, but it will get easier in time. I am still here for you if you need someone to talk to.
