This will be quick, but long

I need to make an update entry. I've been gone for 4 days, but it feels more like 2 weeks. I won't be doing Thursday Thirteen today, I just dont have enough time. ~~~~~~~~~~ The funeral is over and we are starting to get back to our routines and somewhat normal lives. I went to change some things yesterday in my online photo albums and was sending some pictures out. I almost sent one to Grandma Harmon, it's just a habit to send her new pictures when I get them! It made me sad that she wouldn't get to see these, but now she sees everything so it's okay. ~~~~~~~~~~ Work has been really, really busy. I have an aunt and uncle that are moving back here from St. Louis and I've been helping them to find a house. Also a couple of the guys on my team have been gone this week, so I've really been having to juggle a lot! ~~~~~~~~~~ John's oldest brother Richard is coming this weekend with his 5 kids and fiance Trish. They will be here for 10 days and we will be spending a lot of time with them. That means daily trips back and forth to the MIL's house. At least with so many people there I don't have to talk to her much. Now if I can just avoid Melissa a bit I'll probably be okay! ~~~~~~~~~~ We have tickets for Friday night to go and see Brian Regan! We are soooo very excited. He is our favorite comedian and we can hardly wait for the show. John's been counting down the days for the past week. ~~~~~~~~~~ My Grandpa has a stroke yesterday and is in the hospital. He's 6 hours away though and we won't be going to see him. They are going to keep him for a few days and then release him. Thankfully it's not anything more serious. Not that a stroke isn't serious, but it wasn't so bad he won't be able to move ever again or anything like that. ~~~~~~~~~~ I was tagged like a million years ago to do a meme and haven't had any time. I didn't forget about you, I promise I'll get to it before the week is over though. I'm supposed to include some pictures, but I don't have a lot that are on my computer, so I might have to modify it a bit. ~~~~~~~~~~ Katy has a runny nose, I've got a stuffy head and sore throat and John woke up this morning with a cough. We are all catching a cold and it stinks! I can manage when just The Bug gets a cold, but when all of us have it, it's just downright miserable. Especially because I have to take care of all of us. ~~~~~~~~~~ I'm still working on getting my scrapping corner cleaned up and organized. It's such a mess right now and in two weeks we are donating a bunch of stuff to the Deseret Industries, so I have to have it done by then. I didn't realize how much CRAP I've got sitting around not being used. If I don't get it all cleaned up, John says he will just start throwing stuff away! I know he will actually do it, so I really have to get cracking. ~~~~~~~~~~ Send some sugar over to SugarMamma. She just found out she will be having a new lil' bean and she needs all the positive energy she can get. Even if it is cyber energy! ~~~~~~~~~~ I think that is all for now. I will try to make it over to everyone and get caught up. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayer, kind works and virtual hugs. They have been so very helpful and some of them I have re-read just to get a bit of a pick me up. I have laughed, cryed, and felt joy when receiving all the support you, my wonderful readers have shown. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!

I'm so sorry about your grandfather. :( That's all you need after losing your great grandma.

I wanted to let you know that you inspired me to make more time for my grandma who lives about 1 1/2 hours away. I'm trying to get down there to visit more frequently, knowing that life is so short.

Hey, hon!! :) I'm back - well, sorta.. just wanted to let you know. Thanks for the updates!! Hope you and Katy and John are feeling better.. sorry to hear about your grandpa. Glad to hear it's not a serious one.

Oh, and just so you know - when left unattended, crap multiplies. Worse that rabbits. :)
