Not posting much

Things have been busy around here this past week. Everything happened on the same day too. Friday.

My Grandmother passed away. She is the one that taught me how to crochet. I am the only one of her grandchildren that learned how. It is sad she is gone but in a way it was a blessing as she did not remember any of us. Tomorrow is her funeral.

I found out this information on Friday the 15th. Tax day. I was the only one working that day. Needless to say I was exhausted as I was doing the work of 4 people. The two guys who used to be on my team were asked to help but they ignored the email. When I was getting ready to leave - when everything was clear - one of them said he could now help out. Well hey! Where was he when I worked thru my lunch? When I worked past the end of my shift? I told him he was not needed. I know what he wanted. He is the one that will only help out on overtime. The nerve. Well....it is over and done with and I am the one that came out on top!

So today I am off of work. Tomorrow I am off of work. Wednesday I am off of work. I will see what is waiting for me on Thursday but right now I have other things to think about.

I am thinking of crocheting something small for my Grandmother's casket. A snowflake maybe? Knowing me I will make something but then be too chicken to put it in there. I am still trying to convince my husband to go. He hates going to funerals yet one of our first dates was my Grandfather's funeral so go figure out that one. He is not a big family person and I have a huge family. There will be people here from out of state and Mexico - my Grandmother's sisters. It will be good to see them as it has been years but B is not used to that. I don't expect him to be but hey! I hate going to family functions like this alone when all my cousins husbands and wives are there.

Well I am off to look at patterns to see what I can make quickly tonight. Oh and that reminds me....I need to go grocery shopping for what I am bringing tomorrow.


  1. Sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers!

  2. My condolences about your Grandmother. It sounds like you have good memories of her, hold on to those and definitely give her something you made with the skills she taught you.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your granmother. Hold those precious memories close, and go ahead with the snowflake for her. It will be something special the two of you shared.

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss. I think your grandma would give a little smile in heaven as you placed a little crocheted snowflake with her. What a special thing to do!

  5. So sorry for your loss. My hubby's Nana passed on the 2nd. I was closer to her than my Nana and it was hard. Good though cause she was suffering and now is at peace. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers this week. When she was hospitalized I gave her an angel I crocheted and placed that in the coffin with her. It was hard to see her but after a while, nice to see her for the last time looking peaceful.

  6. I'm sorry to hear of your loss...I know how you feel, as I lost both my grandmothers last year.

  7. Thank you all for your kinds words. I really appreciate them all.
