i got out of my pajamas yesterday long enough to take the girl out yarn shopping. she is now crocheting a blanket.
the hubs is eyeballing a $150 coffee maker on qvc.
it has been raining here since friday. the yard is flooded. we might have to build an ark.
i haven't been on facebook in several days. it seems like too much of a shiny happy place to announce my grandma is dead.
we are leaving for wv in the morning. we are the last to go. my sister and her family left friday; my parents left yesterday after they delivered my grandma's remains to my aunt's house. my aunt and uncle and the remains are leaving today as are my bro and his family.
we have not all gotten together as a family yet. i find this odd. i have never been through a death were there was a cremation. there will be no viewing, obviously. since we will all be staying in different places in wv i assume there will be no all family get together. i find this odd.
when the hubs' mom died most all of the family stayed together at his aunt's house. while it was a devastating time, it also was comforting, to me at least, to all be together. sharing stories of his mom; sharing in our grief.
today i've made homemade scalloped potatoes and some bread pudding (i got the idea from bea). we'll see how comforting they are.
the hubs has been incredible during this whole thing. supportive, comforting. i don't even want to think of what life would be without him.
i may or may not be able to blog over the next few days. i did try to make it around to all of your blogs today and read/comment. you have all been so incredibly wonderful. thank you. and thank you to my sweet friend trish who called me and talked for a long time without being nice and comforting : )
for whatever reason i find that, the words people say to you to make you feel better, very hard to hear face to face.
