Please excuse the interruption...

There has been a death in the family. Fortunately I have been way to busy getting ready to go to the funeral to dwell much on what a loss it is.

It' my mother in law. (BTW- Is it still an in law when you have been separated for two years and 4 days? )

She was a wonderful woman. Most men have many horrible MIL stories but she was a wonderful supporting loving lady from the second time I ever met her. (the first time we met is a different story and not a bad post idea :) )

When the ex and I were divvying things up I told her I get to keep her family. Her family told her they get to keep me.

I will miss her. Ok enough of that.

On a lighter note - Wow, it's been a while since I bought plane tickets less than 24 hours from departure time- No need for a prostate exam this year! I am sure the airline would have let me know if they bumped into anything on the way in.

Don't forget to tell someone special that you love them. You just never know if it's going to be your last chance or not.

I'm sorry to hear about your MIL. When I was married to my first husband, I had a really great MIL. When I divorced the loser, the hardest part was losing touch with his Mom and Dad. They were wonderful people, and I will always consider them a WONDERFUL part of my life.

So sorry on your loss. If she put up with you, she must've been great ; )

Travel safely, even if it's a tad bit painful.
