It is my mom's birthday Sunday, Bubber reminded me.

I'm being mean but I kinda don't even want to do anything for her. Or for some reason I just think What's the point? Maybe what is the point in celebrating her if she doesn't celebrate herself?

Craft Giveaway

She is crying so much over this. At least so frequently. Pretty much every time I talk to her she cries at least once. I don't understand why it is so hard for her. Kinda starts to drag me down too.

But we just have to keep moving forward.One foot in front of the other.

Going over tonight to sort through the last few things hopefully and then heading over to the church tomorrow after work to help set the stuff up and probably to help man the tables. Not really sure how it's gonna work. I want to give a prize to the person who takes the most stuff or something haha. Or a huge hug.

I have a tag in my gmail for "hoarding" and one in my google docs as well. Haha. That is funny. I sometimes don't realize things are weird and then I take a step back and nope, it's pretty effing weird.

We have been going through the scrapbooking supplies. It's so hard, somehow. I can of course see that it's more than she uses, more than she'll ever need, it's piled up, crammed in there in a totally non-organized manner, spilling onto the floor, she can't use it like that, yet she still feels like each item is so important. Anyway though we are paring the collection down to about 1/8th the size, hopefully a more manageable amount, and having a give-away for the ladies at church, because they are all over that craft stuff.

I told her once they move into the new place I'd have the professional organizer come and help make a little craft area that's nice and useable. 

Sometimes I feel like the whole thing is a farce, some elaborate story we’re telling ourselves. We’ll never get to the bottom of it. They’ll never sell the house. There will never be a new house. But no, there is progress, things are looking better. I think the craft supplies are the last big obstacle. Thank God for my sisters. Really.

Had a nice trip to Cape Cod last week. I'm making sure I am enjoying my summer, too. Life is here, it's now, it's to enjoy, even when you're dealing with crazy shit.
