What a sad and crazy week. My father-in-law's funeral is today and so today should be the last crazy day around here. We're all sad and odd things will bring out fits of tears, but we're all doing much better than I thought we'd be, especially my husband. I figured he'd be a jellified wreck of a man, but he's turned out to be a lot stronger than I gave him credit for. In fact, it's me that has turned out to be the jellified wreck of a person. My kids tend to look at me like I have suddenly burst into flames anytime I start crying at strange things like commercials, packages of hamburger, the kitchen sink.
Grief is a definitely a strange mistress.
But slowly we're adjusting and I think once the funeral is over this afternoon we will all pretty much be back to feeling like normal people again, just with huge holes in our hearts...but that's to be expected.
So tomorrow I expect to FINALLY be able to be here full time. Fingers crossed!
