It has been crazy around here, what with hospice people, friends, and family in and out. Dad is still with us, but weaker. My brother blew in for a day an a half, and has gone back home to Ideeho. It was so good for Dad to get to see & talk to him. They went through old photos, and told hunting stories, and loaded my brother up with things that Dad wanted him to have. Now if Dad will just hang in til my Sean gets here to see him.
I love my kids, they are straight up awesome. When I put the word out to them that Grampa was on Hospice care they went into action. Marymine rounded up her brood, loaded'm up in her crewcab pickup, and headed up to spend the day with Gramps.
My Sean texted to say he and Amy would fly down and spend the weekend with Grampa and I. If I thought he needed to come sooner, he would make that work, too. I didn't think that was necessary... So they are flying in Sat and staying til sometime Monday, Yay!
In the Best News department...
My Sean has popped the question to his girlfriend Amy and her response was "Oh Hell Yes!"
She is a really nice gal and Sean and his girls love her and her boys.
I'm pretty excited, she just might fit pretty darn well in this crazy clan.
