I survived. It wasn't too bad, the babies are both quite sweet. I could not, WOULD not, let the remaining twin cry herself to sleep as I was told to do, in fact, if she was mine, I would probably NEVER let that happen again, at least not until she is waaay older. But, that is just me...and there was NO way anything was going to happen to that tiny child under my watch. The older one is about sixteen months, I think, and she was quite active and talkative, too bad I couldn't understand what she was saying....but the two hours went pretty quickly. I was told the funeral was quite beautiful and sad, of course. Steph and her sister and Jordy all seemed to manage it pretty well, almost like they had all cried themselves out of tears, and I feel that in some ways, today has to be a better day for them, the first in a while. On the other hand, I know that the day after any funeral leaves the family somewhat bewildered, things return to normal, all the family leaves for home, and there you are, left with a life that is nothing like normal....the reality smacks hard right about now. I will continue to pray for all of them.
I have my company test this afternoon - one I believe I am ready for, and then addtional training for a few hours. It will be good to get back to it. I did not even pick up any book yesterday, the day flew by...after the babysitting, I drove to the ICS, then all the way home - the day was three quarters shot and all I had really done all day was drive. I then took a much needed nap, until Craig showed up---we ended up going out to dinner when Mark was finished with his work day. It was a good time, but we have been eating out WAAAY too much. Not just for financial reasons, although that certainly is adding up, but also because I am going to weigh about a thousand pounds pretty soon, if I don't watch it. I have not gained anything really, but I sure feel like I have...ugh. I have never been that much of an "eat out" person, recently, I am becoming quite the food connoisseur...so many restaurants, so little time. Good heavens. Last night, we went to the Macaroni Grill, and it was heavenly. I had the seafood linguine...it really was the best dinner I have eaten in months...When we left, I was so full---too full, and for a while I was just plain sick. After we got home and I took CrazyDog out for a walk, I felt better. At least my stomach felt better, my legs...not so much.
Have a very happy Thursday.
