DH and I decided to come home today. He felt really bad admitting that he had to get back to work for Tuesday but eventually told me, and in the end I agreed it was a good idea to come back early. We both get to relax tomorrow and then I don't have to go back to work until Wed so I am going to relax even more and get a mani/pedi.
It was great seeing all my family, but of course sad under such circumstances. We just had a graveside service for my grandfather and I couldn't believe how many people showed up. I also ended up speaking and OMG it was soo hard. I got really choked up and couldn't do anything but sob for a minute or two. But I am glad I did speak and shared some of my favorite memories of him. My grandmother was glad I spoke and so was my mom because I am the oldest grandchild and knew him the best. It was very sad, but I am glad he isn't suffering anymore.
There was so much belly rubbing (which I hate!!) But was glad we had something happy to talk about with all the relatives. I can't wait to find out what they are so we can come up with a name to honor my grandfather.
Anyway, thanks for all the t&ps before and I hope you are all having a great weekend!
