Life Happens... and sometimes it stops

My husband's grandma passed away on Wednesday evening. She was very old and it was somewhat expected but death is never easy for anyone. It's been an emotional few days with late nights, tons of family time, really weird work schedules, and oddly a lot of spending. (a crazy amount of drama, tears, and yelling thrown in there just for the fun of it too... grrr)

I haven't been on the computer much. I miss blogging (and reading your blogs) and honestly I really miss keeping close track of my money and staying on budget. I haven't been paying attention to anything at all these past few days. I'm not going to beat myself up about it though. A very wonderful woman with a huge smile and an even bigger heart will be dearly missed and honestly not much else matters. I'm actually contemplating scratching this entire financial week off and acting like it never happened. (contemplating)

Today's that second birthday party with my niece that I had mentioned. I scrounged up a gift for the princess just like I'd done for the party last weekend so not a penny spent on that one. Actually I'd sort of forgot (until just this moment) that it's also my dad's birthday TODAY. Oops, maybe a third or fourth year in a row that I neglect that one? I don't know. sigh. (our phone is broken) I may stop by the graduation open house directly after the b-day party but I'm not bringing a gift to that. Sorry graduate. You know it's weird but I still don't feel quite old enough to be buying graduation gifts. I'm not making that up either.

AND the funeral is tonite. I'm working on getting my mother in laws baby book transfered over to a new scrap book (in between all the parties and driving and craziness of today). She really wants to have it set out at the funeral for people to look through but it's lost all of it's adhesive so the pictures are in no way attached (and she HATES the actual book itself). That one right there has been the BIG budget buster. But it's very important to her and seeing how she just lost her mother/ her best friend, AND has been fighting hard core awful with her sister for the past week it's really the least I can do.

Well, thanks for taking the time. I appreciate you all : )
