The funeral of my Nan was today. Usually this would be ass, obviously, but not for me...it couldn't have been better. The service was beautiful, even though it was sad, and exactly what she wanted (though it's going to be a while before I can watch Lord of the Rings again) and we (the family) spent the day laughing and remembering as we ate too much and drank a little more than usual. The weather was amazing, the sheer amount of flowers on her coffin was jaw-dropping and everything was just perfect.

God bless you, Nanny. Rest in peace.

I'm glad to hear you found a bit of solace. It sounds like a beautiful way to remember a loved one.

The astounding: we're going to my dad's for the weekend to forget about all our issues for a couple of days.

The catch? My parents, my husband's parents, us, the baby, three dogs, AND a cat! And a two and one-half hour car ride. One way.

Should be interesting. :cracked

Don't have a stereo anymore. :shifty How 20th century.

While we had several misadventures such as food poisoning, exploding crockery, getting kicked out of a park visitor's center and my father-in-law accidentally washing his hair with dog shampoo, we had a good time.

And we've discovered Kiley absofuckinglutely LOVES Grover and Ernie and his rubber ducky song.

Training night at the fire station was fun, not because of any big news from the President (the mood was actually a bit subdued over that), but because we celebrated the simultaneous birthday/promotion party of one of our firefighters and the very recent birth of his niece (who also got to meet all of us and seemed to like us well enough to stare at us without crying). Life goes on, and sometimes it goes well.

On the plus side of what I said int eh "ASS" thread, Osama *IS* dead and that's at least a bit of a relief.

We can leave Afghanistan now, right?


Right?

My inlaws are here today, so not only do I get a bit of time off baby watch, but my father in law has installed a new light fixture in our dining room, a great big decorative clock I bought Scott two Christmases ago but we never put up, relocated some shelving, and put up our baby gate.

Woot for free skilled labor!

People dropping like flies at Dave's, (suspension, firing, quitting), so I'm getting boosted hours and better shifts in the kitchen/pizza, which is great for moving into my new apartment at the end of the month.

Double post, but meh, I don't post in this one often enough XD

Things are going amazing :) we're finally, finally getting it together. It's going good, benefits have finally settled and there's a chance I'll be referred for Incapacity, which is amazing - in my current state I just can't work, no matter how much I might want to.

And I'm even getting a new computer! This is a good thing ^^ Desktop, as - including not being able to work - I'm not exactly going places any more, so a laptop's not really worth the hassle.

The only bad thing is the deteriorating health, but so long as things stay on a constant, I can live with the walking stick and fistful of painkillers/anti-deps ^^

Took the kids for a walk around the neighborhood and to the pool (indoor pool- it would be too cold to go swimming otherwise). It was a gorgeous day full of springtime smells and chats with neighbors. Then Mr. Ange took us out for dinner- full sushi dinner and chocolate lava cake for dessert. After that, I read some favorite old books to the kids and watched bad old movies with the husband.

Kiley outright laughed for the first time tonight!

It was the giant, toothless grinning hysterical baby laugh - she totally sounded like that baby in the ripping paper video and it was the most adorable, funny, cute, adorable, wooby, mushy, fantastic experience!
