Yesterday was the short committal service at the cemetery for my dad. It is finally over.
TC and I will be leaving Michigan today. Our first stop is Shenandoah National Park in VA for some hiking. I probably will NOT be Sparking because we don't have electricity at our campground. Doh! No internet for me!!
While I am reluctant to leave my mother, she needs some time to find her new normal. My siblings who live in the state will be visiting on weekends for a while. TC and I will be back in a month or so before we swing back home.
I've been terrible in the last week -- lots of goodies being delivered to the house, lots of toasts to my dad who was the quintessential party animal....but I'm starting today and hopefully tomorrow we'll be able to get a hike or a walk in!
I hope everything is going well with all of you and I'll check in later when I can. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
