Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life. All of the stress surrounding my gram's death and our living situation and my husband's absence reached a head and I kind of freaked out. But when I was driving home I saw this cloud formation in front of me on the highway, and I pulled over.
I just stopped. The kids were firmly plugged into a DVD, so they barely noticed that we were no longer moving. I stared at the light breaking through the clouds, shed a few tears, snapped a picture with my phone, and got back on the road. Driving towards the light, I thought to myself, 'From here on out, it can only get better.'
Today was her burial. Thanks to the world's best babysitter and all-around awesome person Nicole, I was able to leave the kids behind and mourn her without having to worry about if the ipod was charged or if I had brought enough diapers. It was awful, but it was peaceful.
And on a completely unrelated and different topic: Tonight? WE OFFICIALLY BECOME HOME OWNERS AGAIN!
