Day is done (yay)

Got a funeral in the morning. It took me all afternoon and evening to get my head wrapped around writing the funeral message, but that's finally done. In the meantime, I've been assembling and putting stamps on The Pathfinder, a newsletter for SI-NAUMS* that I edit.

All kinds of things distract me these days. I'm physically tired all the time, mentally foggy, emotionally drained, spiritually blank. I told collinsmom that if 70% of life is just showing up, then I guess I'm earning a passing grade, but I can't claim much more than that.

But, "there ain't no discharge in this war," so I soldier on.

Cuthbert has been demanding attention all day; Sassafras has been feeling OK, but she seems as listless as I feel most of the time. We all just kind of hang around each other. They are a great comfort to me.

Time for bed soon. Must be up betimes.

*SI-NAUMS = South Indiana (Chapter of the) National Association of United Methodist Scouters
