Sad face!

March 5th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

First the good news. An extra payment to the mortgage posted today: We're close to $67,000. I want it paid off so bad!!!

Now the sad face. Grandpa B, the kids' honorary granddad died suddenly in his sleep this week. He is my best friend's dad, and has always treated me and my children as his own family. The kids love him and he is precious to us. It's been a sad few days around here as I grapple with my own mourning, as well as supporting my best friend with her own grief.

I know how she feels, as I lost my dad 4 years ago. I'm putting a lot of thought into how I can best support her while not doing the 'I'm going to cheer you up" thing. We all know that doesn't work. So yes, this weekend we will be driving 3.5 hours to his hometown to attend his memorial and wake, and to spend time with our friends. I'm sad but at the same time hoping I can put that aside and offer some much needed laughs during this hard time.
