Don't want to do that for a long time to come!

That being planning a funeral. All things said, it went very smoothly. The service was quiet and simple like the man himself. Joe gave a great eulogy. He had planned on speaking much longer, but cut it short when he looked up, seen our tears and caught himself choking on his words. The video tribute was very touching and so like Dad...Warm and Fuzzy did a wonderful job. I feel more at peace now that Dad has gone home. Thanks Rev. Ploughman for your prayers and words of comfort.

So it's back to the real world. I'm starting another quilt...I want this finished this month so I better get a move on it! Made Kevin's travel arrangements for his March break. It doesn't make much sense...he has the break, comes back for 4 days of school then gets the long weekend off for the Easter celebration! I wonder how the teachers feel about this?

Joe & I are back on the treadmill...taking today off because we are heading to Calgary for a night of stamping with the Towne Stamper . Should be a fun night as long as the roads cooperate. Joe will hang out with Aaron, Andrew and the boys.

I am racking my brain for gift ideas for Easter. I can get a new game for JT & Alex, but am insure what to get JR. He's a busy boy with lots of toys and with a move in the wings...not sure. I was thinking of a cute lamp for his room but will have to run that by Mommy & Daddy. JR loves moons and stars and I thought one of those IKEA wall lamps - if they still ake them! - would be nice. And then I need some ideas for the 2 boys here...perhaps a huge beach towel each.

Well must run, I need to program the TV for tonight's shows...ER, Survivor and Hell's Kitchen!!!

Sounds like the funeral was a nice tribute to your father.

I, too, watch ER and Survivor. I have never watched Hell's Kitchen and so can't say whether I would like it or not.

I am sure that you are relived now that the funeral is over. Going through the loss of a loved one is a very difficult time in life but at least he is at home now and at peace. No more pain and suffering!!! I am still praying for you and your family!
