The trip home was a bit short, but nice, despite the awful circumstances. The wake was okay cause I got to catch up with a lot of cousins I haven’t seen in a while & the funeral was actually pretty lovely. The priest made an effort to talk about my uncle & what made him special, which was nice. Then my cousin asked my brother & I to speak, so I elaborated on the stories I told below. We all had great stories to share. Really was more of a celebration of his life than a mourning of his passing, which I think is what funerals are meant to be.
Eating wasn’t great during the trip, but I did walk a bit. Stepped on mom’s scale right before I left yesterday & (if it’s right), I’ve lost another 4 pounds since my last weigh in. Okay, that’s not much, but I’ll take it & try to do more with it in the next couple of weeks.
My inlaws stayed at our house, extending their vacation, and watched the dog, which was really sweet. & they didn’t realize that we crate the dog whenever we leave him alone in the house…although we’ve been talking about seeing if he’ll behave if we let him have the run of the place. So…since they didn’t know not to give him the run of the place, they gave him the run of the place, and he was fine. Nice to know & now we don’t have to stress about it.
So far I’ve done a 30-min hike around an old dam (up & down hills) and a 30-min walk along a nature trail. Hubby’s got pizza on the menu for tonight (with salad), so I’m thinking of using this downtime to take the dog for an hour-long walk along the portage. Be nice to get some exercise in if I’m going to be eating pizza crust later. Yeah…that’s a plan. Maybe hubby will join me since my inlaws are napping.
Looking forward to seeing what ya’ll have been up to this past weekend.
