Goodnight Grandma, I love you! Rest In Peace.

My grandma passed away this evening at exactly 6:00 pm. She has been dying for the past few months now. She hasn't been sick or have any diseases, just of old age and loneliness I think.

She had a very good and fulfilling life. She would have been 85 on Halloween. She LOVED and lived for her quilting. She was a wonderful crafter her whole life.

I am saddened by her death, but I think it is more for my mother and her other siblings. I am not as saddened by death as I have been in the past. I have learned that death is not anything bad. I am happy to see that she is no longer laying in a bed, in an empty room, lonely and all alone.

I lost my dad when I was 7 and she has MANY other friends that proceaded her into heaven. My mom and I were talking on the way home that she is probably up there playing Yahtzee with Vera. I said "probably. She probably yelled YAHTZEE when grandma went through the gates."

I love you grandma, and I am glad that you are finally home. Give my dad a hug and a kiss and tell him that I love him. I am not going to tell you goodbye, but I will tell you Goodnight Grandma, I love you, sweet dreams and please keep us safe. Tell everyone I love and miss them too. I hope you are happy and out of pain now. I love you!

22 LBS!!!!

Sorry, I know it has been a while since I posted, and I am not even sure who, if anyone, reads this. I started Weight Watchers a few months back and no, I haven't really been following it. I have however somehow managed to lose 22 lbs! YAY for me. Still have A LOT to go, but it isn't a bad start.

I blame it all on being sick with the "both ends" syndrome lol, sorry if TMI.

As I said before, I have a lot to go, but will try to post updates more often now that my computer is working.
