Not looking forward in today

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Today is the funeral for my aunt who passed away on Wednesday. She didn't want a visitaiton. Just a graveside service. She is going to be buried at the same cemetary where my mom is at. The service is at 4pm. I doubt that I will be going. Been fighting headaches and if the wind is like it was this morning when I took the dog out, I'm not going. Besides, the minister who is doing the service was the same one that did a service for one of my dad's brothers back in 1985 and the service took 2 hours to do. The brother's name was mentioned once and that was it. The widow almost walked out of the service half way through. It's my uncle's (my dad's oldest brother and the husband to the aunt who passed away) minister. The minister is a nice guy but his funeral services are long. The aunt's son told the minister to make it short and sweet service, no long ones. Its about time someone said that to him.

I haven't gotten any more yarn to make the prayer shawls yet. It maybe Wednesday before I get any yarn. I hope so because Thursday we need to be in Peoria, IL, early because my dad has an appointment with his cardiologist in the morning. I need something to do while I'm waiting for dad to get done with his appointment.

Yesterday was a busy day. We went to Moline to drop off a transmission that needs to be rebuilt, went to Galesburg to return a part and pick up a part, and then to another town to pick up more parts. Even though I wasn't driving, I was tired. Didn't have much of a nap when we were coming home from all that running around. It was between Moline and Galesburg on the interstate when I had the nap. You couldn't blame me for falling asleep because I had a headache. I am fighting one now.

    I'm sorry for the loss of your aunt, and I'm sure she would not want to make yourself sick. I'm prone to getting headaches when I'm out in the wind too, especially if it's cold.

    Sorry for your loss and not the best day ahead... Hang in there! I use to live outside of Springfield Illinois so I recognize a few of those cities you mentioned. Small World. Hope your headaches go away soon... Try to think Healthy Choices... one choice at a time...
