On the down side

Well now since I wrote about most of my sexventures's during vacation, here's the other side of the things that went on... Less than a week before we left on vacation my cousin (dad's side) dropped dead of a heart attack at 57, so the day before we left was spent at the funeral home chatting with other shocked family members. When Scooby was seven his father died the week before Christmas. My heart goes out to everyone who's lost a loved one right before the Holidays, it totally sucks.

Then while we were gone my moms oldest sister died New Years morning. So when I got back I had a memorial service to go to. My aunt was 89, had altziemers and was living in a nursing home so her children seemed more relieved that her suffering had ended. They had a really nice tribute to her life, as a school teacher and all around great person. I just really wish that our families would get together other than for funerals. But this is what happens when your a "late in life baby", the majority of my cousins were married by the time I came along so all that's left is funerals. We used to have reunions but they ended due to lack of interest.

And last but not least January 12 would have been my mothers 81st birthday and was also the 9th anniversary of her death. I was going to do a tribute blog to her that day but just couldn't do it. I can't believe that it's been 9 years, god I miss her. I think it's really hit harder this year because of the 2 funerals that hit so close together. Anyway, Happy Birthday Momma...

So that's the down side of whats been going on in my life recently.
