We were down home from july2nd -july 10th. mr B came home the 1st. he is doing very very well. he seems to be happier, hes not as combative and is more cooperative now. He still has his moments when he gets upset, but its not all the time and he quickly gets over it. the trip down home was good but emotionally and mentally exhausting. The day after we arrived my grandfather passed. (he was 80, and it was expected as hospice had started coming in the week before.) My mom and dad were a mess as you can imagine this was thier last living parent. so i got the job of holding down the house, ( cleaning, doing laundry, putting food out, all while chasing after hope and keeping the dog from biting everyone.) if you have a dog you would think you would put it up if it bit people. anyhow, between, that and trying to keep hope out of the pool, she kept sneaking out the backdoor to try and get in it. i had my hands full. gramps funeral was wed morning and was very nice, and it was more of a celebration of life than a morning which was good. thursday morning my mom , aunt and uncle and i went out and layed charlie to rest, pastor did an awesome whole service for him and i feel like i can breathe again, i felt like i can finally get some peace now that i know where he is and tht he's at rest, its calming, thats the only way i can explain it. I have since realized that i have been a shell of a person walking around for the last 6 months. and now im getting back to the basics of living, i'm cleaning stuff throwing things out i was holding on too, just a bunch of stuff..... things are good though, not great but good.
sooo here are the pics........i apologize now for all them i got a little pic happy while down home.

Sounds like a hectic trip, but I'm so glad you got some peace from it. I find so much solace in having Lucy buried near family.
Starry you look really good in those pictures...there's I light about you that I haven't seen in any of the other pics you've posted of yourself. It's wonderful to see.
