Long daze

It has been a long week. Good thing it is almost Friday!

Tonight our house is empty except for the AtHomeFoursome. The kids are asleep and life will start getting back to normal in the morning.

The funeral was fitting and nice. It was good to see the whole family again and it was fun to swarm on that poor little cafeteria afterwards. 40 or so relatives all breaking bread and swapping stories at Maw Maw's favorite hangout.

No matter what you hear, we DID NOT get kicked out of the funeral home for being too boisterous and laughing too much last night. But it was close. Heck, I did not even know that they kept a bullhorn at the funeral home...

Believe me when I tell you that Maw Maw would have been OK with us having a good time and telling a few stories on her behalf.

Oh, there were lots of tears shed, too. But it just seems that around my family a good story will always trump a tear in the eye.

I'm sorry for your loss, but admire your family's ability to find the good story in things. I come from the same sort of folks. It's a good way to be.
