sorry about the delay...

it's been a lot of craziness going on

Last weekend I got a phone call from home telling me that my grandma died. Dad (his mom) said we've got to make plans so think about it and call back the next day before they call my aunt and uncle and let them know what our plans are. Then he says, have fun the next day. Ok, so I did, but occasionally throughout the day and the next and well all this week, I was sad and then got distracted, then sad, then distracted... etc. Luckily the distractions far outweighed the sad reflective moments.

The next day I spent in Boston all day and I'll get to that in another post. I think I left off at the previous Tuesday, so I've got a few days to fill in first.

Then there was the day of travelling. Dang terrorist plans screwed up my day. I had hoped to spend some time doing something in the morning, but noooo I had to be at the airport 3 hours before my flight instead of the 1 I had originally planned.

My new full-time job started this week and for the beginning of the week, the old secretary had her last day and we went over all kinds of things. Where things are that I ususally haven't run across and procedures on things that happen only a couple times a year at most. So that day was shot.

Yesterday was my first day on my own and because together we didn't really get the regular day's work done I had Tuesday plus Wednesday's work to do. Oye. And today was really busy because I will be taking Saturday off so I need to finish up producing Sunday's bulletin tomorrow, so I created 90% of it today so I can start printing about 10:30 or so to give me time to collate and fold them by 5 so I can go home and pack and do necessary laundry. Ugh... my brain is fried just thinking of all i still have to do.

Oh, and its actually a very good thing grandma is dead. She's with God and she has had really bad dementia so that she didn't recognize anyone and wasn't happy or healthy either. But still I will miss her. I did say my goodbyes last January which was the last time I saw her because I just knew I'd never make it back again. Didn't really want to either. It sucked to see her like that.
