A sad day for my family.

First off let me start by saying that Tim's second interview went very well yesterday.  Unfortunately, we won't know if he has the job until sometime over the next three days. It does sound promising though.

Last night ended very roughly for us.  An ambulance was called and his mother passed away a little after 9pm last night.  She'd been very sickly for the last two years, requiring breathing treatments and oxygen tanks.  Last night she took her last breath and couldn't be revived.

Tim didn't make it home until 2am and has been sick ever since.  He can't keep anything down and hasn't slept more than 30 mins here and there.  I don't know how long it'll take him, but I'm taking care of things until he can.

The girls were heartbroken when they woke up this morning.  I gave them the option of going to school or not.  They chose not until about 7:50am and then they wanted to go.  I signed them into school 30 minutes tardy.  The oldest said she just couldn't sit at home all day.  I don't blame her.

Since Tim can't do it, I'll be heading to the funeral home with FIL in a few minutes.  He and MIL had already made their final preparations last year sometime, but he needs to make sure everything is confirmed and get the details finalized.  I sat with him for about an hour this morning helping him get paperwork together and making sure he had everything.  Then back home to check on Tim before I head out again.

It's going to be a difficult next few days.
