You will eventually ease off on doing the familiar. There are so many words you won't say anymore. There are so many familiar sounds in the house--at first I kept hearing his footsteps on the stairs. The dog kept looking for him and finally gave up. Give yourself time to grieve on your own timeline and reflect on your love story. It is hard to adjust to a new life. Takes time. Take good care of yourself. Hugs.
