7 Quick Takes Friday

1. It's Saturday here. Yesterday I was at my grandmother's funeral.

2. We've driven halfway across the country with a sick child who has actually been too sick to attend any family functions and stayed in a strange house, or hotel, alone. He's 17, don't worry!

3. Today we're spending some time with my dad. Leaving Hitch in the bonus room at my sister's where he can use his computer or the wide screen tv. 200 DVDs to choose from and cable.

4. Leaving early tomorrow for home. Praise the Lord! But we have put so many miles on the car in the past few days.

5. Wondering who will be sick next? Will we leave this influenza-like illness in our wake? Will we all get it from being in the car with him 12 hours a day?

6. I didn't get any of the things done over spring break that I wanted to do! I go home to a heavy homeschooling schedule and a messy house. I guess it's just like this week never happened.

7. I'm not terribly sad about Grandmother. She was 95 and had been ready to leave this world for several years. She was in pretty good health until the end and had just a few bad weeks that started with a heart attack last month. The hardest part of it all was that it was an almost identical repeat of Mom's funeral a year and a half ago. Same funeral home, same viewing room, same church, same luncheon, same people. We didn't really like having to re-live one of the worst times in our lives.

I can't wait to be home!


  1. Sorry that the funeral brought back sad memories of your mom. I never like traveling with my kids, however visiting with family who live so far away makes it all worth it. The traveling that is. Too bad funerals are sometime the instigators for those visits.
    Best wishes on having a nice peaceful week ahead.

  2. I'm so sorry especially for the opening of fresh wounds as far as your loss of your mother as well.

  3. Yes, quite a tough load - I will say prayers for you and your family today, as well as your Grandmother. You are blessed to have such a wonderful faith and family! I hope you will not consider me insensitive; I am sending this message of action and encouragement to as many pro life Catholic bloggers as I can. God bless you!

    My mission today:

    PLEASE join with other Catholic Pro Life Bloggers by continually posting at every about Mr. Obama's UNACCEPTABLE stand on the destruction of innocent life - I propose we band together and make a peaceful but continual protest in defense of LIFE! Keep it going! God Bless you and Our Lady of Guadaloupe, Ora Pro Nobis!

  4. so sorry you have such a full plate. it seems that we have the sickies and ailing grandmothers in common right now. well, yours is gone now and mine is not doing so well, but hopefully you know what i mean! i will keep you and your family in my prayers. i think it is always with a heavy heart, after someone dies and we have these busy, chore-filled lives to return to. the circle of life goes on, but nevertheless, i am sorry to hear of your losses.
    God bless and take care.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
