Slept like a baby...

Thank you Unisom! And I'm imagining the purge I did yesterday on my blog helped a bunch. I feel great today. What a difference resting my eyes has made. I can see clearly again. Yay! :) Thanks to everyone who encouraged me yesterday. The support is always, always appreciated!

I've pulled my mom's things from the drawer I kept them in and set them out. Every day I'll work on doing something new. I'll package them up tonight. Tomorrow I'll put addresses on the labels, and next week, they'll be ready to go to the post office. A little at a time. Makes it less daunting and heart wrenching.

My other goal, in the next few weeks, is to put together a book of "Mom"--a bunch of her writings and things I've saved from her Diaryland and other places. I think this will be a wonderful tribute to her. I'm planning on getting done through, something simple and inexpensive, but something anyone can order to have on hand for Mom's grandchildren, neices, nephews, etc. I think the family would like that.

Anyway, I've got a boatload to get done again. Monday, D2D goes off to the printer, so I'm excited to get the copies in my hands ;) Honestly, I've been waiting a long time to write this book, but it's turned out even better than I expected. I hope everyone will love reading this one.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day!

I'm told Createspace is less expensive than Lulu. You might want to check it out.

What a wonderful project! I wish my Mom wrote. She's such a private person, even though we're close I don't know much about her internal life. You have a treasure that will last forever in your mother's work. HUGS!
