Quick Update

On Thurs morning, around 8am, we learned that R's grandmother had died at quarter to 4. He was in the shower and his mom called so I answered his phone. She broke down crying while telling me - it was sad - and then I had to tell R. I wasn't close to her or anything but it's hard to believe she's gone. Really, the same feeling I had when my grandfather died this past November. It's just difficult to think that you'll never see that person again.

I took Thurs and Fri off from work to spend with R and his mom. On Fri we took R's mom out to lunch and to see a movie as a distraction. We saw the new Star Trek movie - it was very good.

The wake and funeral was yesterday (Saturday) morning. It was a sad day.

Usually I would go to my mom's house for Mother's Day but because of the circumstances I stayed here to be with R and his mom again. We cooked out at our house and R's mom came over to eat. We also watched W.all-E - such an adorable movie.

Because of all the goings on I haven't been able to post or read posts in days. I'm so behind! But I will be reading and commenting little by little. I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day (or "OMG you rock day" if you're not a mother YET ;))


  1. How sad. The death of a loved one is always hard, even when we know they are in a better place and no longer suffering. My prayers with you, R and his family during this difficult time.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about R's grandmother. It's always very hard to loose a loved one. *hug*

  3. my condolences on your family's loss. it is so had when it really sinks in that they are truly gone.

    thanks for checking up on me. i was actually away all weekend too...
