Gonna be a rough week..

Not that the rest hasnt been tough.... May 16 last year, my brother Robby committed suicide, out of the blue, no warning signs, none. This past Sat, May 2nd, my step brother Mark was killed instantly in a car accident, that left the car so burnt they had to pull serial numbers off the engine to match to the VIN number.
Well they have scheduled Marks memorial for this coming Sat, the 16th. I have no clue how I am supposed to do this on that day. My step mom who is in her own hell, has apologized over and over, saying that was the only day without putting it off till June, and they understand if I dont come. Of course Im going, dont want to, but will be there.
My kids took this death hard, actually asked of if they had any uncles left, so sad. We are thinking of giving my oldest (10.5) the choice of going, but he has his flag football tourney, and I am torn on making him miss it. A bunch of decisions to be made this week. Im just rambling....

Kick ass art.

"I was just arguing global warming again this past week with someone. She watched Gore's POS movie and believes every freckin' work of it. I told her that he can't even get the hurricane on the cover to spin the right way, and that's just the START of the problems with that movie. Needless to say the conversation with her went downhill from there." -- a meteorologist friend

We don't know each other but I just read your thread and noticed that today is the 16th.

I'm sure this day has sucked ass. Just wanted to acknowledge the day...sorry you're going through this.

Thanks everyone, I greatly appreciate it. The memorial service this morning went very nicely. Just having a rough time with the rest of the day. The hubby left for work and that leaves me to fend for the kids tonight, bedtime cannot come fast enough.
Thanks all.

I'm just now seeing this, monkeymoo. I can't imagine how hard the memorial must've been for you. I'll keep you in my prayers, though, because even though the memorial is over, your sorrow surely is not. Click here to enlarge
