Joys and sorrows
Thursday, August 01, 2019
On June 29, my DDIL’s father died in his sleep. It was a total shock to everyone. Luckily we were able to go to them and help with DGD, while DDIL helped her mom and siblings deal with the shocks, the funeral and all those details. So proud of how my DS jumped into help where he could. The whole event reminded DH and I to make sure our kids know how our finances are arranged and what our wishes are. It has made for some interesting conversations. DH wants trees planted in his memory and wants any service to be one that brings solace to the mourners.
Next week we go visit my DS in Colorado for a week, then 5 days after we get back, DGD is coming for a five day visit, we’re taking her home to spend a long weekend. When we return, we will begin a complete renovation of our master bathroom. Never have done a like this before, it’s been quite a journey already.
