What a Week!

This has definitely been a really strange week. Earlier my Mom and Sister flew down to Florida because my Grandpa (Mom's dad) is in the hospital. All the arteries on one side of his heart are completely blocked. He is going into surgery sometime next week and Mom wanted to be there for my step-grandma. I think my sister is coming back on Sunday and Mom is going to stay. Not sure what type of surgery Grandpa is having, but the doctor said that if he would have had a heart attack before they found this he would not have made it.

Then my hubby's friend's father died (posted about it in the last post I did). The calling hours and funeral are tomorrow. We haven't spoken with my hubby's friend since the day it happened so I pray that when we see him tomorrow he is doing well (as well as can be expected). I pray that he will draw closer to the Lord in this circumstance too. It's still hard to realize that this man is gone. I keep thinking when I go to my in-laws I am going to see him. It's so strange.

On a lighter note.......I actually ventured out on my own today with the 3 children. was only to the bank, but that's a big deal for me. After we went to the bank we surprised Hubby at work and took him out to eat at Steak and Shake. It has been a really good day. I better get to cleaning though because my father is coming up after he gets off of work soon. May the Lord Bless you today and through the weekend!

Congrats on your venture out. Take it from me its definitely an adventure each time I take all my children out with me solo...takes alot of patience and adjusting.. I have a cart full of kids and let my older help me push another one to put the groceries in. We get plenty of stares.

Melanie, you will get used to this. That was a good first outing... short and sweet.
