No, we did not fall off the face of the world

This has been a crazy week. Kevin's Nanna was sick in the hospital and so we were in Lubbock for a few days (that is two hours south of here for those non texans) Her kidneys were failing her and causing her to be septic. In the end the medication was stopped and she was made comfy with no more blood pressure cuffs (you know how bad those automatic ones hurt) and given a little morphine. The doctors thought it wouldn't take more than an hour or so. Being the trooper she was Nanna made it 9 or so hours before taking her last breath peacefully. We returned to Amarillo for a day or two to get things together and returned to Lubbock yesterday for the services which were held today. She is in a musoment (who knows how to spell it I think it's supposed to be a mix of museum and monument) She is in the same one with her hubby who passed many years ago. I had never seen this type of thing above ground. In puerto rico they sort of have a family tomb underground where the entire family is buried and once they have decayed their remains are put in a smaller container and put away kind of like a book shelf to make room for the newly deceased. Of course I have seen a grave so this was a very new concept for me. There were no tombstones in the sense that I know them. They were metal and almost like a plauge with a spot for a vase to put flowers. I have digressed enough. The services were very nice. Kevin was a pallbearer along with his 3 cousins and his dad. He was able to see some of his family that he hasn't seen in awhile but under unfortunate circumstances. We drove home today afterwards and it's back to work tomorrow.

Onto better news.... Kevin and I are moving this month into the house that Kevin grew up in and we will be staying there for awhile lol we are so not into moving a whole lot more haha it's dramatic. We have a few things to do and get ready but it should be in the next few weeks. More on that later as things progress and we know a little more about what is going on.

Update on Sam and Roxie.... Well with Roxie being away for a week (we had her kittysat by our friends while we were going away) they seem to have to start all over with their friendship and there is much barking and hissing going on but it'll get better. Atleast Roxie remembers she still loves us and is very cuddly still so that is good.

Hey, Kev, I'm really sorry about your grandma. Try to think happy thoughts and remember the good times.
