The weekend just flew by. I can’t believe it’s Monday morning and it’s back to the grind. Mick took Friday off and we got stuff ready for his party on Saturday. Saturday we pretty much did the same thing until guests started arriving. We had about 30 people here and Mick had a good time celebrating his big FOUR OH birthday. I made home made beans (black and refried), green chili, guacamole etc… and it was a huge burrito feast. It was beautiful outside so the party was basically in the back yard and on the deck. Towards the evening we built a fire in the fire pit. It was so nice. I’m SO glad I got that.
Sunday was a very mellow day in our house. I had a full blown migraine that I thought was gonna blind me. I haven’t had a headache like that for years. So I laid in bed all day taking various medications to lessen the pain and deal with the side effects.
Today is the first day of school for me. I leave in about 30 minutes. I decided to take only 1 class (painting) and then do an independent study in printmaking. I’m happy with this decision as any more classes would just be overwhelming right now.
My parents are in Houston with grandpa now. They were hoping to have grandma cremated and her ashes brought here to scatter along the coast where she grew up. There is some one week waiting period in Houston for cremation, apparently. I’m still ok with not flying to Houston to see her one last time. I will not miss her memorial service though.
My Mother-in-law is here. She’s having a nice, relaxing time. She enjoyed meeting all of Mick’s friends and even stayed up until the last of the guests finally left- around midnight. I felt badly yesterday- the weather was gorgeous and she was kind of hoping we’d venture out for an outing.
I hear my Mother-in-law in the kitchen so I’m gonna go chat with her awhile before I leave for class.
