I've had a week both sad and unusual. The sad news: my former mother-in-law and my children's grandmother died this week. Margaret was very much a part of my life until her children put her in a nursing home (she was old and blind and could no longer live alone). Margaret was someone I could cry with after Tod died as she knew the pain of losing a son. I will be going up for the funeral.
My son sent me a text to tell me that she died but since that text on Tuesday, has not called to tell me the arrangements. I got the date/time of the funeral from his aunt. I think he is pissed because I am not staying with him. I only planned to fly to Philadelphia, not into Allentown, the nearest airport to where he lives.
On a brighter note, he did send me a Mother's day card this year. I thanked him for it.
