I got word early Saturday morning that my grandfather had passed away. It's not a surprise, as he has been ill for a long time, but still it is hard. So, I've been dealing with that the past few days. Trying to schedule to get to the services, where I'm supposed to be when, helping plan things, making notifications, etc... you know, all that fun stuff you have to deal with when someone dies. So, right now I'm having to plan our trip Tuesday morning, for a 4+ hour drive, get the family dropped off, drive across Atlanta to the airport to pick up family, and be there by 3:00. Have you ever driven around Atlanta? NIGHTMARE!!! Especially knowing I'll be coming back through it in rush hour traffic.
Then this morning, my wife's mother, who has been sick for a while now, is having an emergency appt with her Doctor, because she is only getting worse. So, my wife is taking off up there today, another 3 hours away, to see about her mother. I have to leave work, get daughter to school, go back to work, go pick her back up and to the babysitter, go back to work, then pick her up on my way home. Knowing she won't have had her normal nap, and will be tired and ill by this evening. there is a chance wife may not be back tonight, so may have to get me and her packed and dealt with so we can leave in the morning.
It just seems to be one thing after another. I just have to remind myself, it's really not that bad, and there is always much worse. I had planned on getting back to some regular posts this week, but that's not going to happen. Hopefully I will be back or able to get Friday's picks together and posted. If not, then you know why. Sorry for making you read this, and venting my issues to bore you all with. I hope you all have a much better week than mine is shaping up to be!
