too much....

julie's grandfather died the day after christmas, and while it was expected and a blessing -- he was 92, fully in control, and very ready to die after a long physical decline -- it definitely threw off our plans for a restful week at home as a family. instead we spent the week with julie's folks and sister and sil at grampy's farm, about an hour from here, in the midst of a lot of stress and family angst and funeral planning. sigh. a tribute to grampy will have to wait so that i can put my house back together again (we flew out christmas night after feeding our christmas party of "misfit toys" and the house is a wreck). tomorrow it's back to the grind.

yes, i'm feeling a little sorry for myself.

Hon, I'm sorry. About the family angst and the loss, but also about the chaos and the craziness on top of the normal chaos and craziness this time of year.

Hang in there. Here's to a quiet week!

Ugh - I'm so sorry - one step and then another - and hug those babies, I mean, kids - Sara
