Heading to Wisconsin

I’m sitting in DIA waiting for my flight to Milwaukee* to board. I found out on Monday that my Grandma had passed away and I’m flying home for the funeral. We knew the time was coming soon, but of course, it’s still sad. Especially since I haven’t been back to visit in quite a while. I’m traveling alone because Nathan’s Grandfather also passed away this week! He & his brothers will be flying to Illinois on Sunday.

It will be nice to see a lot of family and friends this weekend, although I’m not looking forward to the heat AND humidity.

Nathan & I were talking about how liitle time we seem to have to do the things that are important to us. We always seem to do things we “have” to do and not what we want to do. Make sure you tell your loved ones how much you care about them!

Enjoy the rest of your week & weekend! I hope to be back next week with more normal blogging and knitting :)

  1. Safe travels, to all of you. Goodness! Two grands at basically the same time.

    And yes, I think we get caught up in the hustle of the day-to-day and don’t get to really LIVE sometimes. We’ve just instituted a monthly dinner with my favorite aunt and uncle to avoid that “why is it always so long between visits?” thing. (They’re just over two hours away, so we meet in the middle.)

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am sure she will be missed a lot. I hope you have many, many happier memories of her and all she meant to you. Take care.

  3. I’m so sorry for your loss. It really does make you think about appreciating every moment. Safe travels to you and Nathan. ((hugs))

  4. you have my sympathies. during this sad time, be sure to enjoy getting to see your family you may not see all that often. remember stories of her life and just make the best out of this sad time.

  5. Yikes! My sympathies to you and to Nathan. Even when there are things that you have to do, it’s good to make time for those thins you want to do. Life is to be enjoyed.

  6. I’m so sorry to read that your grand passed away! Safe travels to you, and I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. Oh – so sad for you both – sending you a virtual hug

    Good words – do what you want to do and tell the people you love all about – two great things to live by

    Take care x
