I’m in Dallas now until Tuesday – this time I flew (airfares were cheaper if I waited a week – BTW, the bereavement fares are a joke – they’re 1/2 of the FULL fare on a flight – therefore they start at $600!)
Yesterday was sorting day. My sister in law and I went through my brother’s closet(s) and sorted a bunch of stuff that had belonged to him, to my father, etc. His high school jacket (Whitmer) and his jean jacket cut-off vest (Harley-Davidson) were two things I really wanted to keep. Most of the stuff is sorted in piles for friends, brothers, goodwill – I think the hard part of going through each piece is finally finished, though.
It was very hard for Karen. I’m still on auto-pilot -a nd it’s made easier by the fact that I’m not in my own home (the pain feels stronger when I’m at home – here I’m just kind of numb)
