Finding a New Normal
When my oldest daughter moved out, the house was quieter, but not empty.
When my second daughter moved out, the house was peaceful, but not empty.
Our roomer died yesterday and we found him this morning. The permanency and finality that has descended on our house -- now it feels empty.
Do houses mourn the loss of their caregivers? It sure does feel like it.
There is not only a sense of emptiness, but that it is somehow wrong to go through his things.
I'm glad I was not home when the police and coroner showed up. Tom said the lady copy approached the house with hand on gun, telling him to stand back, etc. I told my husband she did not know what she was walking into, so cut her some slack.
It will take a while to find the new normal.
