quiet around here

120922_0331Martin

It’s been a little quiet around here. I’m trying to study for my midterm coming up at the same time as I prepare at work to be gone for four weeks starting on the 14th. Which means I spend approximately 16 hours a day sitting in a chair. But mostly it’s just been a little somber and busy making last minute plans for the weekend.

My Grandma Janet passed away last weekend, losing her battle with cancer. She was 71 years young and, as you can in this picture from our wedding less than two years ago, she was so full of life. I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone with more energy.  My hobby collecting gene most certainly came from Grandma Janet (through my mom, of course).

Greg and I are heading to southern California today to celebrate her life. I’m incredibly grateful to my MIL who canceled her 4th of July camping trip to keep Alfred so we can both go. It’s always great to be able to spend time with my family but it really sucks (let’s just call it like it is) that this is the reason why. She will be missed immensely by 5 kids (and their significant others), 16 grandkids, and 5 great-grandkids. Quite the legacy.
