I had no idea that it been so long. I started reading on how to improve my blog, and then all of a sudden, my blog didn't seem worthy or good enough or something I don't know. So I thought I'd wait until I could improve my blog which I just didn't get around to due to a summer case of kids-up-my-hinie-itis. It was a severe case. I will improve my blog; it's just gonna take some time. Since this is really more for me than y'all anyway, I don't really need to be anything more than I can be right now. Maybe I should listen to me more.
I write today to pay a bit of honor to a really good guy. My Grandpa Jerry passed away today. He was in his 80's, and he lived a really full life, so no regrets there. He was a really funny guy and a great dancer. He served in the Navy in WWII. He told great stories, sometimes over and over again. I did get to see him one last time. My ma and sis sat with him until 1:30am after I drove 7 hours. In typical Jen fashion, I defused with humor and I'm sure I made a lot of jokes that were in poor taste, but Jerry would have been rolling if he wasn't in a coma. We were on our A game. I like to think we brought him a giggle or two before he passed a few hours later.
He even gave me an early Christmas present. I had almost 5 hours to sit and watch whatever tv shows I wanted to watch (British shows on PBS) while cross-stitching while everyone was doing last minute work today. I can't even tell you the last time I was able to sit for 5 hours straight. It was nice.
So, thank you Jerry for being good to my grandma and to us. Thanks for an afternoon off, one of the most precious gifts to a mom. Thanks for being you. You are and will be missed.
