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!
