Simplify Everything

May 25, 2018

2018 has been rough - started with my mom's hip surgery at the end of January and then my dad had a small heart attack shortly after that in February.  And then of course the end of March sucked.  We all know that.  The beginning on April was full of the usual sad events and feelings of intense anger and frustration.  Along with a general lack of wanting to do anything but read books, because entering a totally different world and mentally leaving yours behind is clearly appealing, and decorate our house, because it's nice to nest and completely control something, anything, when the life outside your walls is something you can never control. And then in May, I suddenly felt a huge desire to simplify absolutely everything in my life.  Which was sort of a weird feeling to have come out of all that, but let me explain.
