- Wedding: March 2011
Well we made it home from Iowa. I started to mention this earlier but we had a pretty chaotic and crazy trip, missed our return train from Chicago, found out we could applie the funds we’d paid to a new trip BUT that it was going to be an additional $500, and ended up renting a car to drive back to Texas.
The afternoon before we got back to Texas we received word that my Mema (maternal grandmother) had suffered a fall and was rapidly declining.
She passed away yesterday morning and its been very rough. There’s a blame game going on with my mom and her brother (my Uncle) and it’s all very ugly and sad. We had to turn the stupid rental car in at 11:30 or face a $160 an hour fee, so we did that and were hurrying out to the house to try and see her before it was too late, and we got the call that she was gone when we were about half way through the 45 minute drive.
And, this happened the day after my eldest son turned 19. Interestingly enough, and something that they will be aware of forever… she died the day after my oldest’s birthday and her birthday was one day after my youngest son’s. He was born September 13 and her birthday was September 14. 🙁
