Three's Company -

  • Last minute Running errands, Housecleaner came (her child is in the Hospital), but getting everything finalized for visitors. And I made 3 videos to prep for the memorial; funny but true, something many don't know, and one on who she was. I was crying during the 3rd one, there was no way I could have done it at the memorial without being a wailing mess.
  • Coming into town Some of our longest friends (Mark and Anne) came into town and we did dinner. My brother and most of his family made it a little after that. We had good conversations and company. A few people had to cancel because of flight problems. The in-laws (Mary/Bill) are many hours delayed thanks to Southwest stranding them in Vegas and being unable to get planes out. But we are having people fly in from all over the country to pay tribute to Melissa.
  • Walkabout I've been talking about running away from it all and taking June (and some of July) off, and doing a walkabout, going to Iran, Greece, Germany, London, and visiting friends and family abroad. So I chatted with work, and my immediate management supports it. I have a 8 week sabatical + can do 6 weeks of bereavement -- but I have things at work I want to do in August. So I'm checking on dividing up some of that time. But a getaway between chapters of my life, seems a good idea -- and lets me do some head clearing on whether I even want to work any more.
