With Tom being so sick the last few years, a lot of those jobs have shifted to me or to someone who helps me out. I cannot carry 40 pound bags of water softener salt down the basement steps so either our friend Pat or our son Josh has done that. But today, I wanted to share a funny story about one of those jobs.
Several years ago, we had a mouse and had put out sticky traps and caught it. Tom asked me what I wanted him to do with it. I told him to just consider me a "mob wife". I knew there were bodies, but I didn't want to know what happened to them. LOL. After Tom got sick, I told him that I really missed being a mob wife when I had to take care of things like that. When I hit a bird with my car and the bird was caught in my grill, I had to take care of it. That was pretty much the grossest thing I have ever done.
I think these are the types of things you don't realize will have such an impact on your life when your loved one is gone.
