Just wanted to let my followers know this week might be a bit tough for me to update because of my great-grandmother's funeral arrangements are being taken care of all this week. Today, i spent most of the night picking out pictures that would look good to put up for the wake and funeral. Tomorrow, we're doing more of that, Friday is the wake, and Saturday is the actual Funeral day. I imagine I'm going to be exhausted by the end of each one just like I was for my grandfather's last year.
I started an official family tree last night since I was so tired of hearing names of family and not knowing who was who. So far i have listed over 130 people, but have a fair amount more to put in. It has been comforting to do for some reason. I mean, it's not like I am depressed about great grandma dying but I do feel rather out of sorts still. My only grandparent now is my grandmother who is the daughter of great grandma. Dad's parents died about 10 years back, mom's dad died last year (and on his birthday). I suppose I still have my uncle Dick, step-grandfather and more of a grandfather figure than my dad's actual father, but he's not doing quite well either.
I guess great-grandma's death has affected me in some ways; making me realize how much older I am getting, since people who I felt like they'd be around forever are starting to leave me.
...I just realized I had a rather unplanned introspective moment. I was planning just to type in about how I am getting busier, and I ended up writing a lot more than I thought I would. Ah well. I leave you with a more comforting image.
