It is done


At 1am this morning I changed the sheets on my bed for the first time in almost two months.

It’s official: I will never sleep in sheets that my husband slept in ever again.

I didn’t cry. I wasn’t emotional.

In fact I was so calm about the process I even stopped to take the above photos.

Well I guess I wasn’t completely calm. Once I stripped the sheets it took me 10 minutes to put the new set on the bed. When I finished the job and stood back to admire my handiwork I realised that I had actually put the old sheets back on the bed again so I had to remove them a second time. That was a bit tough.

I didn’t really know whether to put the old sheets in the washing machine, the garbage bin or just burn them. I ended up leaving them in the bathtub for now.

Well…that’s that.

Another accomplishment to tick off my list.

Another step further away from the man I love.

Another moment of acceptance that my life has changed, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

Just keep breathing, Sadie, just keep breathing.

  1. You’re doing so well! I didn’t comment on your fridge post but I meant to… It looks like you are slowly but surely putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward in baby steps, which is so great. Actually changing the sheets wasn’t a baby step.. It was hugely symbolic for you so well done, very brave.

  2. I think this is a great and positive step! Well done Sadie 🙂 I agree with waitingbetweenthelines, it’s not a baby step, it’s a huge symbolic step for you and you did it. Gradually, you will build a bigger and better life for yourself x
