Nothing has changed this morning, so I am cleaning house and folding laundry, packing my bags, and tucking my projects away or finishing them quickly. Hoping to make parent teacher conferences tonight. Wishing it wasn't like this.
Grandma was always they healthiest and strongest of all of us. She told Mom a month or so ago, that she always hoped to go by getting really sick so she knew it was coming but having enough time to say goodbye to everyone. Really she has gotten, that wish, in July they told us it would be days... I just want more, I always would have. We lived with her for a while when my father was in the Navy and in a lot of ways she raised my sister and me, hopefully I can be half the woman she is.
I have decided to take the rug I was working on for her before she got sick and bind it off there and send it with her. I am too superstitious to bind it off before she is gone, and could not work on it again without her and even if I did what would I do with it.
The picture is the grave site of the professor Indiana Jones is supposed to be based on. I don't seem to have Grandma's picture on my computer.
