It has been a long time since I've posted, not that I haven't thought about it, but my heart hasn't been in it.

My grandmother passed away late November. Early December we had her funeral. It was beautiful. She was buried in a pink casket on the family plot. First off there was her viewing, which I did poorly at. She looked lovely; they did a good job. It wasn't her, but she didn't look bad. I took one look at her and I just started crying. I had to rush to the bathroom. My Aunt J (first letter for privacy) came with me for comfort. For the entire viewing I stayed with my cousin D (first letter for privacy) which was just fine. We talked and just sat comforting eachother. I learned a lot about cousin D this trip, got to know her, and I love my cousin all the more.

The next day was the service at the adobe in the church on the grounds. Sat by my sister, whose bag of sunflower seeds fell when we stood up once. It was funny. I was a little upset that my Uncle B didn't sit up front with the others (grandmother's children, my aunt and uncles). My mom did the uligy (spelling?) and it was lovely. We then were escorted by the police to the cemetery. They shut down some of the roads and did an amazing job of keeping all of our cars together, especially on the freeway. Those amazing police donated their time, they weren't getting paid to do what they did, simply amazing.

She was laid to rest next to Aunt M, her husbands, and our ancestors, who are amazing and important people, especially to us and to California. After all was said and done, we went back to Aunt J's house to have the reception. There was a lovely catering service that had amazing food. I did experience a migraine during this, but it was still fun. A TON of pictures were taken during this time, that's where most of the facebook pictures were taken.

We had to push back the wedding date from the 17th to the 24th because my mother would be unable to make it. She's been down in California for over a month. Since I've been back I've been nearly catatonic. Not really reading, haven't knitted anything, cooked nothing. I'm getting better, but I'm still a bit sad over it, and I think I will be for awhile longer. I'll be happy for my wedding day tho. I'm excited but nervous and stressed with migraines coming on a lot.

So that's what's been going on these couple of weeks. Or few weeks. What day is it? Ugh!
