It's been going along better finding items and unpacking them and starting to feel a bit more normal about living here.
We are now receiving all the "snail mail" forwarded to us from my in-laws. My father-in-law's 97th birthday is this month and my husband gently told him that his wife has died. We are not sure that he understood. My husband feels better having told him but we are still worried that he will have to be told over and over again.
I was just wondering how to tackle the photos from his family when yesterday, we got a forwarded letter from one of my father-in-laws relatives. She is elderly but writes quite well. I think she can help me with this project. It felt odd opening a letter that was NOT addressed to me but I think that this is something I will have to get used to.
Oh, and by the way, she lives in the NEXT town from us.
