I'm glad you're feeling a bit better.

Going through sentimental keepsakes is always a bit bittersweet and melancholy. You're worried that no one will be there for your "stuff" to go to. I'm worried about the opposite. I've got "Throw away without opening in the event of my death" all over lots of stuff. One is the binder I used to bring to therapy (got some odd looks in the waiting room). There are some things you just would never want your children seeing. My word, if I think about it any more, I'll end up with nothing but empty rooms. :)

It sounds as if you're keeping busy and productive in your sabbatical.

A lot of the contractor stuff feeds on itself. We started one project in the backyard, which required that another one be done, which really pointed out that something else needed to be done, etc.

My newest brainstorm is that since we just had dirt and grass added, I should dig a trench around the entire garden area and fill it with cement. That way I can just run the lawnmower along the cement and the grass won't grow into the garden. My mother did it in her front yard and it makes the garden look so neat and tidy. It's invisible behind the grass, so it doesn't look concretey. And it makes the weekly yardwork easier. My husband thinks I'm hypomanic and is threatening dire measures if I start such an ambitious project with several work deadlines looming.
