I don’t have any grandpa’s left 😦 My grandpa Hommel died yesterday. 1 week shy of his 98th birthday. He is going to be reunited with my grandma now. They had 11 kids so I have a really big family on my dad’s side. They are such a care-free and funny family. I love listening to their stories about growing up. My sister and I hated having to leave their house on the weekends because we always had so much fun with our cousin’s. Now I only talk to them at reunions, weddings and funerals. When we all get together though we pick right up where we left off.
One of my aunts told me yesterday that I was getting too skinny and I didn’t have any woman fat left. She must be talking about my hips because i’ve never had a chest, Rachel took it all.
I’m sad mostly for my dad. Even though grandpa was getting older and you know it’s gonna happen i’m sure it’s never easy to lose a parent no matter what age.
I am so happy that until my 28th year on this Earth I had all 4 of my grandparents. I know many people who lost theirs at younger ages and my husband has only had 1 grandma growing up. My grandma Bailey is still going. She is a tough woman. Although she’s got Alzheimer’s she’s doing really good. Of course she misses my grandpa like crazy but she’s gonna make it. We all have to check in on her though because she thinks eating Fruit Loops is a meal 😀
On a positive note my weight was 115.0 this morning.
