Getting Back On Track

You know what they say about the best laid plans... My grandma passed away just two hours after my Focus February post. It's been a rough week, with the funeral happening yesterday, and there's still so much work to do clearing out her apartment. I had no idea how much is involved when someone passes away. From the mountains of paperwork, to the phone calls, and the physical act of moving all of their things. I honestly don't know how anyone ever has a funeral, there's so many things to plan and do. I have a whole new perspective now.

Anyway, I didn't want this post to be a downer. My goal is to start getting back on track. I have some critiques to finish, some prizes to mail out, a contest to put up, and of course, all that writing I'd hoped to do. I will just have to squeeze all of that into shorter periods of time for the next couple weeks. If you're waiting to hear from me, I should hopefully be getting back to you this week!

Lastly, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the kind words about my grandma and my loss. They were really appreciated, and meant a lot to me. Thank you.

I am a new follower and would also like to offer my condolences. I have been to two funerals in the past week and am trying to support the friends who have lost their family members. It is a huge and emotional job, all the planning and paperwork, and taking care of their actual things. A huge responsibility, especially during an emotional time. I'm very sorry for your loss.
