Cannot believe how this day has imploded. Discussion of who would like to take what devolved in under three minutes between brother/sister and that was that. I know the next few days will be terribly awkward with whispering among her kids and ostracizing DH and me. I said to him if it's uncomfortable, we'll just get a hotel. But then that makes it hard to pack up next week. Stomach churns. Amazingly, though, I ate dinner. Solidly. He's got all the time in the world to tackle this - it's she who is typically in a rush for things to be settled.
Viewing is Thursday and funeral Friday. I feel this has cast a shadow on the mourning because lines have been drawn in the sand and teams are being drafted. Her family comes in and the whispering will begin.

Reason: impressively bad spelling of ostracizing
