Post 4th of July

I'm back in town after a whirlwind 5 days. I don't have anything really exciting to share, just thought I would post about my holiday. I spent most of the time traveling. It began Thursday with R's funeral and burial services. I have to say, I had a hard time when both my maternal Grandpa and Father-in-law passed away several years ago...but I am having a real hard time with R. Maybe it is because he was so young...maybe it was because he was such a good friend...or maybe because we miss him so much and can't imagine him not being here. I really don't know why this one is harder, but it truly is. Thursday was one of the hardest days I have had to go through in a really long time. I still keep re-living that day in my head over and over again...word for word, minute by minute. After the services and spending a few hours with R's parents and my 3 Aggie friends who attended with me, I continued on with my travels.

I headed to my Dad's for the 4th of July weekend. Every year, we spend the 4th on the lake with my family celebrating the holiday and my paternal Grandpa's birthday. Still dealing with R's tragic death, I had a hard time going out in the boat or riding the jet ski, because I kept thinking about how R died. He drowned (sp?). I was scared!!! He was so young, it could happen to anybody...even the best of swimmers. We carried on with the weekend and despite everything going on, we had a great time. It was good to get away from everything - Office work, house work, telephones. It was great to see family again we hadn't seen in a while...well most of them. My Grandpa's wife decided to be a pill, but we tried to ignore her and not let her spoil our fun. I was ready to come home, but I wasn't ready to come back to work yet. Today is my first day back since last Wednesday and I keep thinking - man how I would love to either work from home or not have to work at all. I am jealous of you Jenn. I hope everyone had a great 4th weekend and is getting back into the swing of things as I am.

Death is always hard to deal with, no matter who or how. Just ask God for help, he's just waiting for you to ask. I have some news to share with you...I'll give you a call. Oh, and your order is here.
