Couldn't Resist

I'm totally throwing an Ativan into the washer the next time it gives me trouble...

Goodbye, Earl: 1933-2009

My grandfather, Earl W. Clay, passed away on June 15th. He and my grandmother were married for 57 years. I am relieved that he is no longer in pain, but now I wish there were something more I could do for my grandmother to ease the agony of her loss. One of grandpa's last wishes was that there was to be no funeral: instead, we had a gathering at my grandma's house on Father's Day. There were a lot of old pictures of my grandpa that I'd never seen before, and my cousins made a really awesome slideshow to commemorate grandpa and grandma's life together. It was really good to spend time with my family, despite the sad circumstances. I will try to get some photographs up later today...

Yeah, it's Cool

There is a trundle bed in my room. Occasionally, Violet sleeps in my room, and I roll out the lower portion of the bed for myself. Last night, she planned our sleeping arrangements: "We're gonna sleep in your room. I'm gonna sleep on the top, and you're gonna sleep on the bottom. Is that cool?"
