Dear Diary,

Emptying the home of someone who has passed is overwhelming. I will give credit that it has gone mostly efficiently. To our credit, my siblings and I don’t have much infighting. It’s been a largely supportive and pragmatic experience. As I sit here tonight in the empty carcass of her formerly full and blooming garden though, I’m struck by how quickly we can be erased from a space. We’ve all moved a lot in our lives though so I guess it makes sense that we’ve powered through it and gotten everything mostly removed in a matter of days. This whole thing is just weird…
