January 24th, 2009

My grandma started her eternal life at 9:06 pm on Saturday, January 24th. I will miss her.

I am praying that Grandma Marge gets some peace soon. She is more than ready to leave. She is in some pain and really wants to go. I hope that she soon is able to pass on. I also pray that my dad handles it okay. He is struggling with some of the decisions that have to be made. I pray his health doesn't deteriorate due to this.

Pool Table and Organ

Here are the pics! We have already put many hours into the pool table. Ty has picked up playing the organ as quickly as he seems to pick up all instruments! I think my grandma would be so proud!

Fond Memories

Walked through my grandma's house for probably one of the last times. Boy lots of history and memories there! I wish I could have been in a position to buy that house, but wasn't meant to be. We are getting the pool table! Yay! It is being moved today. I think we will really enjoy it. Then I did get suckered into my reminiscing and said I'd take the organ also. Oh my! Not quite sure where it will go, but I did enjoy going through all the music books she had. Found the songs she and I used to play together. For example "The Old Grey Mare" and "Grandfather's Clock" :-) I know it will make her happy for me to have the organ. Hopefully I'll get pics up soon of the new old stuff!

Part 2 of Hermann Hill

There are just too many pictures to post from our trip. But here are a few more... They include parts of our walk when we explored Hermann & a view from our room. The goal is the one we chose - "Soul Mates" - we rang it once for every year we've been together. It was one of several gongs in the Forest of Gongs.


Follow up

My sisters and I had a wonderful time when they were here. I loved having them stay at my house. Then the next night we went and hung out at our dad's house. Great times - got to cherish everyone of the moments!

Can't wait for Friday. My sisters are coming to stay with me!!!!! It will be the first time that the 3 of us have gotten to go out together in forever! Then they are going to spend the night. The kids will be so excited, too. Not sure of their plans Sat. night, but they will have to head back to NE on Sunday.

Great nights!

I know I should really post part 2 of our get-away, but I haven't downloaded pics yet, so I will jump ahead to what went on this weekend and then hopefully soon get got up with the other :-)

Saturday got to spend some time with some amazing gals! One of my friends is going through a divorce, but she is amazingly strong! I so admire her strength in the face of what she has had to deal with. I can't even imagine. We had a get together at her house and I think there was some healing going on there!!! Also got to meet someone new - had lots of fun getting to know her as well.

Tonight Todd and I (and some friends) participated in a Texas Hold em tourney that was a charity for autism awareness. We had a fabulous time at this event. They earned a good chunk of money for the organization. Again, got to meet some great people (Even had a former Chief's player at my table - Bill Moss). Then to just add sugar to the whole evening, my hubby got 2nd place in the tourney and brought home some $$!!! Yay, honey! (made up for all what I donated, hehehe).

Well, all in all - a terrific weekend!
