This morning after I walked Robert to school, I did my computer stuff and ate breakfast. We had a comp day today, so no work! Once Ryan was up and had done his morning computer stuff, we headed out to post on the bike. I got my allergy shot and then we went to Clothing Sales for a few things. Then it was back home again for a bit before we headed to Benson, 1/2 hour from here, to go to A&W for lunch. It was a beautiful day for riding and, as always, I enjoyed riding with my Sweetie! Lunch was good and then we headed back home to get the backpack. We went to the quilt shop here in town and I found some really cute fabric to make a wall hanging with the thing I cross stitched for Robert’s teacher. Then we went to Ryan’s college bookstore so he could get his books for his summer classes (Spanish 1 the first 5 weeks, Archaeology on Saturdays for 8 weeks, and Pottery for the second 5 weeks). And then it was a stop at the grocery store for taco cheese for the tacos that I didn’t make for dinner tonight. After a while at home (oh, and I did laundry today, too), we went and got Robert from Child Time, went and picked up my bike from the bike shop (new tires and handlebar grip tape), got a car wash – or would it be a van wash? – and then to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner.
And we got the phone call this afternoon. My grandfather – Grandpa Bob – has passed away. I am very sad, but I also know that he is in a better place now and not suffering anymore. Grandpa Bob, you are loved by many and will be missed by all. I know you are in Heaven now, looking down on us. Robert took the news a lot better than we expected, although I don’t know if it’s fully sunk in or not. We had family cuddle time on Ryan’s lap and Ryan told him. He cried for a few minutes but then went about his business of being a very active 5-year-old. Mom, Dad, Carol, and Grandma – we are sending you big hugs from Arizona until we get there in person.
