In less than 24 hours, the kids and I will be on our flight to the UK for the funeral. Am I ready? No, though not for lack of trying. It was a jam-packed day of lots of errands. I'm not complaining. In spite of what's to come, today was the first day in a while where I myself. In control...well, for the most part. My counseling session today was a rough one, in regards to the emotions involved, but a valuable one in what a catharsis it evoked afterward. The result was totally worth it.

Our time in the UK will be rather whirlwind. Land Wednesday afternoon, go see the MIL at the crematorium Wednesday evening, up and ready by 9:30 Thursday morning for the morning service, off to the hall for the get-together then back to my FIL's house for more well-wishers. Friday will be spent sorting through stuff for him, as well as a good part of Saturday, then Saturday evening, the family is off to dinner to spend one last night together in memory of Mum.

We fly back on Sunday morning, arrive back here in California at 5pm local time. Kids go back to school on Monday.

See what I mean by whirlwind?

And now I'm off to bed so I can get up at 6 and finish up everything that didn't happen today.
