Such Bitches, but no surprise!

How's that title? Fits my former stepdaughter AMANDA quite well, and her aunt GAIL too actually. AMANDA and GAIL both wanted to read some myspace blog, so here it is :-) After the funeral today, there was a "reception". There was delicious fruits and veggie trays and a cheese/cracker tray. As I walked by to the table I was sitting at, AMANDA says real loud, "We're gonna read some myspace blogs" I just smiled and kept going, didn't even look at her. Her 50+ yr old aunt GAIL giggles and says, "Sounds good!"  My kids heard AMANDA say it, and wanted to know what she was talking about. I told them she was just being AMANDA, and trying to start something as usual, and to just ignore her, as usual. Another weird thing, AMANDA's (or AMANDUHHHH as she wrote my husband a couple months before he died) husband was taking all kinds of pictures when they brought the casket out of the Church to put in the hearse, and at the burial site, it was strange. Mad…

Tonight....

Was the viewing for my father in law, RIP Dad. My daughter didn't want to go into the viewing room, as it was open casket, she didn't want that to be the last memory of him. My son wanted to go in, so I took him in and I was very proud at how strong he was. He told me on the way there, "Mom, you know what dad would tell me? He would tell me to be strong" and he sure was! Sunday, as he was walking down the hallway, he walked into my room and said, "Yes Mom?" I told him I didn't call him and he said that as he got to his door, he heard a males voice say his name and he said it sounded like his grandpa. I believe things like that so I told him it probably was his grandpa. I was also surprised to see a picture of all the grandkids from 1994 ( That included my daughter) up and since my son wasn't born yet, the sister in law's (who disowned my husband and his brother) daughter printed up the picture of my son that I have on my myspace. I had caught a gl…

REST IN PEACE

"I got a call today, I didn't want to hear, but I  knew that it would come" a little Don Henley anyone? :-/ It's what I am feeling after getting the news that my wonderful father in law passed away last night. My kids will be devastated, but they are resillient, I am ok. I am sad that he is gone, but happy that he is now reunited with the love of his life, my mother in law, as well as with his two sons that went before him, JD and my husband. There are two siblings left, however listening to my sister in law tell it, SHE is the only sibling left. How sad and lonely for her. It's too bad my father in law did not pass away at the home he wanted to be at, my brother in laws home. Instead he went from HIS home, to the hospital, to my former stepson's, (I vented on that already) and then to my former stepdaughters house. SHE was refusing to return my nieces phone calls, she even LIED to my niece at one point in time, telling her she didn't have her brothers numbe…
