I finally started writing drafts for the puzzles I’d assembled but hadn’t published before mom went into the hospital. I find that I want to write about them all in relation to her – either she bought it at the thrift store, or it’s one we did together, etc.
I know this is a blog about puzzles first and foremost, and I’m doing my best not to be too maudlin or sad, but that may just be how it is for a while. I usually try to at least sound cheerful even when I’m not feeling it, or I used to. I’m not sure I can manage that just yet, it seems overly fake when I see the words.
So bear with me, if you can, I’m sure after a while I’ll feel somewhat like my old self again and be back to the happy puzzle-y posts you’re used to. Although, be forewarned, she bought SO MANY puzzles at the thrift store it may be a year or more before I get through all the puzzles that she bought us! 😎
**my oldest has a blog about his movie collection, and he wrote a beautiful tribute to mom, if you’re interested click the link. He’s a pretty damned good writer, at least his mom thinks so. 😉
