First of all.... emoticon everyone who left comments or goodies for me upon the death of my father. I appreciated each and every one of them, but there is no way I can stop by everyone's page to say thanks.

This morning we headed to our homeschool co-op as usual and there the day was filled with hugs and offers of help along with continued prayer for our family. I was able to make a couple of phone calls (AARP and Assisted Living) to get some questions answered or changes made while there and that was helpful. One mom even brought me lunch from a local sandwich shop and that was much needed as all I had taken was an apple as I planned to go grab a sandwich during the lunch period. Her comment was "We are taking care of you today." So sweet.

Once home I had a short time before heading to the funeral home to offer the final details needed for the death certificate. Had to do some research once home as I didn't know offhand where my grandparents had been born or what grandma's full name was. I really didn't realize her first name was Mattie! I always knew her as Velma. Trivia.... I appreciated the guy at the funeral home for putting my mom's name on the certificate info and listing him as a widow instead of putting the divorced wife of 2 years down.

Next task was getting the co-op emails finished up for the week and then getting supper ready. Finally got those hamburgers BBQ'd. (Original plan was for Saturday.) After supper we finished the Temple Grandin movie and now we're watching more I Love Lucy. We're at the point where she is having little Ricky.

Tomorrow.... Nutritionist, cleaning out dad's room at assisted living, dentist for me and then I need to get my "inbox" cleaned out on my desk and take care of just a little paid work. Maegann and I may find time to go to the jewelers for our February checks for warranty purposes.

We did decide to have the hospital bed, wheelchair and walker donated to a local mission called Hands of Hope. When I spoke with assisted living they would just donate anyway so we may as well have them pick it up ourselves.

    Be sure to take care of yourself. But I do agree the best thing is to keep busy.

    I'm glad that they were taking care of you yesterday. I hope that you can find some time to get away by yourself and do something for you.
