When it Rains it Pours

If any of you read my hubby's blog or my sister-in-law's for that matter you know that their Gramma has been doing so well. I also posted about this a while ago. Sadly, Kevin's Gramma passed away early this morning. My FIL called early this AM to let me know... I waited for Kevin to call an I broke the news to him- that was definitely not fun (to say the least). Then I had the pleasure of contacting the Red Cross.. actually they were easy enough to deal with. Unfortunately the hospital where Gramma is, was not as helpful. I did after multiple attempts get all the information that I needed. So there is a chance I'll get to see my honey very soon! I am excited and happy about that although I wish it was under better circumstances.

I am heartbroken that I cannot actually/physically be there for Kevin right now. Also, I can't help but feel guilty for having never met Kevin's Gramma. Don't we always think "we should have tried harder; done more." Well instead of wallowing in the regret, and heartache I feel I have been pretty busy today. Contacting the hospital, the Red Cross, talking with Kevin, trying to figure out what I need in order to get his Class A's squared away (rank, stripes, oiy) and keeping in touch with my laws. Yeah I've been keeping fairly busy. I'm also extra sleepy from being awake an hour earlier. I really think I'm an old lady. My body does not operate properly if I sleep too much or not enough it's really pretty crappy. I thought us twenty-sometimes were supposed to be able to adapt easily? Not this broad!!

I hope everyone is doing well today. Never put off to tomorrow what should be done today! Those of you who can, take time out to hold your loved ones close and appreciate your time with them. and if you're at all like me I think we should "woosah" and choose kindness an patience over allowing our frustrations to lead us to quick-angry responses... basically lets all hug our family and friends today and let them know how much they mean to us and let the small things go! =)

I am very sorry for your loss. But hopefully you will be able to see your hubby soon, atleast that's one good thing that can come out of the sad situation.
