Life Going On

January 13th, 2017 at 01:24 pm

Last night I went to my grandson's orchestra concert and C was there. She seemed to be in excellent spirits, smiling and actually looking quite well. My DIL says her tears come and go, but she is determined not to stop living, and I say good for her.

I spent $16 on groceries yesterday, $23 on gas and $1 on coffee. I was going to stop the coffee habit at work, but it seems I really need it to get going.

I am working on a family tree at work, which is interesting. It's good that I have the subscription so I have a "secret weapon." For those who wonder why I would create a family tree at work -- sometimes donors come from well-known families with historical wealth, and the fundraisers like to know how all the pieces fit together when they plan their strategy.

Anyway, it is complicated work, because it is a very large family, as well as very private, so it is challenging. I have no idea if I have "captured" all the descendents yet, but I can figure out a lot of them from obituaries.

So it's off to work today. I have to miss my grandson's MLK performance. Ordinarily, I would take off, but I can't do it after having been off for 10 days.

Tomorrow, at my grandson's request, the whole family will meet for lunch tomorrow. That includes my ex and his wife, my nephew and his wife and children, as well as my son's family (which, of course, includes C). It will be a big table. I think it's so sweet that my grandson wants to do this. It's also very nice that my ex offered to treat.

Oh, and I should say I talked to my boss yesterday, and she said she had budgeted for my wages for the year ahead. So it seems I will work through 2017, anyway.

    C is very brave--and lucky that she's got all of her family for support. Good news on the job front!

    That is good news about the job! C sounds like a strong person.
