Wow, no post pretty much all week. I know that's totally not like me but I've been pretty busy. On Wed I had my physical and drug test for my new job. I start on Sept 2nd and will be putting a lot of hours in during training which lasts from 2-6 weeks. I train during the day when Craig is home so that's really nice, my mom is going to come and spend some grandma time during the couple hours we overlap. It's a nice chance for her to spend some time with them an slow down a little bit, she's always running it seems.

Yesterday was my uncle Steve's memorial service. It was really nice. Tears were shed, healing was accomplished. At least I hope so, It was as it's always been with my family there's the Wisconsin group, the MN group and then my family (mom, me and my sibs). We just haven't really fit in anywhere since we moved when I was 12. I don't know all the what's and why's of all of that but I know that it sucks. I realized that yesterday when I was looking at the pictures of my uncle and realized that I didn't know him very well, and that's really sad. I wish our family could somehow repair itself but I just don't know if that can ever happen.

All in all it was a nice day spent with my brother and sister and mom and some of the relatives I don't know well enough. The service was beautiful and I don't think there was a dry eye in the place when they played the song "daddy you can let go". Even my moms boyfriend was reported to have wiped a tear or two, although likely wouldn't admit it if asked.

Now i'm spending the weekend getting caught up on some things around the house that haven't been done this week and making sure the kids are all ready for school on Tuesday!
