Writing, for me is therapeutic.  I have another blog, one that mostly dealt with education and teaching issues. I unloaded lots of stuff there but also shared some of my feelings about NYC, the city I love, vacations and of course, my family.

My dad passed away several weeks ago.  I pretty much had the responsibility of overseeing his care for years.  I was the only one nearby for him after my mom died.  For six years I called 3 times a day, at least and visited every week and more if he needed me.

My husband and I are now in the process of emptying his apartment.  It is both physically and mentally draining.  I am starting this blog as a place to unbottle what I am feeling and to also share some of the things I learned about hospice and end of life care.  Hopefully, while helping myself, I will be able to post things to help others.

  1. I'm so glad you're doing this for yourself. When you suggested it to me last week, I thought it was a great idea. I just haven't fully committed to it yet. If I decide to take the plunge, you'll be the FIRST to know. =)
