KPO I Love You

My dear, sweet brother in law passed away this morning, the day before his 46th birthday. We were able to spend Friday through Monday with him. He waited until we left and then passed on.

He gave my niece a ring he had purchased in Turkey many years ago. He said to her, "When I bought this, it was long ago and at the time, I didn't know who I was buying it for. I just knew I was buying it for someone special. Turns out, the special person was YOU."

I am so proud of him for putting up a wonderful fight. He never lost his spirit, even making quips like, "Hey I have this really great weight loss plan, although I don't recommend it."

I am also proud of my husband. He did such a wonderful job comforting his big brother and saying all the right things. And he wasn't afraid to say all the things he wanted. He talked about many precious memories and he told him he loved him and will take care of his daughter and wife.

Always, always, tell the people you love just how much you care about them!

Tales from the jail again

Hubs had a guy in the jail with a last name that's the same as a famous car dealer in the area.
Hubs asked, "Hey are you related to so and so?"
Guy said, "Nah man, that guy's white."
Hubs replied, "Well Angelina Jolie is white and her kids and black and vietnamese. Anything is possible."

The guy laughed so hard he couldn't breathe.

Hubs is a funny guy.

In other news, I feel like hurling. My BFF sent me an email telling me she made zuchinni orange ricotta muffins. I'm pretty sure I threw up in my mouth when I read that. She's a health nut. I hate waiting to see if there is a reason for me to feel so pukey.

I'm always afraid it's going to turn out to be psychological.

I'm eating like a hog and sleeping like a log lately. I suppose that means something? Counting down the days.. oy vey.
