Happy New Year, I think...

Yup...thats what I feel like this dreary Monday morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend - I'm almost positive it was better than mine.

As many of you know, Dan's stepmom, Jean passed away last month after a long battle with cancer. Her memorial service was scheduled for Jan 3rd. We got a call on New Years Eve day that Dan's Grandmother was on her way to the hospital because of trouble breathing. Not abnormal - we didn't think anything of it really - she was doing pretty good for 89 years of age. Dan's Mom was at the hopsital with Grandma - Dan was in the area, so he drove up there to be with her. He got there 4 minutes before Grandma died. He said he got to watch her take her last breath. Sigh.

A whirlwind of scheduling ensued and Mom was able to get everything taken care of and scheduled Grandma's service on the 4th. Since everyone was already up for Jean's service, they were all able to be there for Grandma's too. It was an insane weekend filled with tears, laughter and more food than I care to remember. I'm relieved its over.

Anyway, needless to say...I'm draggin hind end today. Tired. Drained. Spent.
I'm gonna go warm up my 3rd cup of coffee.
Please...everyone try to have a good day :) I'm gonna try reeeeeeeally hard. :) Thank goodness for naps!

Love to all!

It sounds like you stayed home today Ang and I'm really relieved to hear that. I know this past month has just been so trying for you. A whirlwind of emotions and situations to deal with.

You're always in my thoughts and in my heart dear friend, truly - always.♥

Ah Sharon ~ wouldn't that have been lovely? lol No, dear friend, I'm at work. Blech. Unfortunately, I had to come in and be here at regular time. It was a struggle, but I made it :) Thank you so much for your support my sweet friend. ♥

You are such a trooper Ang! I was really hoping you'd have the day off. When you mentioned naps I thought just maybe but desks can be good for crawling under as well. ;-)

Hang in there dear friend and know that you are loved so much!♥

I am so happy you made it home safely but sad for the losses :-( Now that you are home, you can get some rest and remember the good times. Being emotionally drained is not good for our bodies so make sure you get a good nap ;-)
Love ya dear!
