Caught in a Whirlwind

Is March gone already?
A few good reasons March is behind us:

1. Officially spring is here, but mother nature keeps playing these tricks on us and brings us snow... WHERE IS MY WARM WEATHER? Enough is enough.

2. My grandmother passed away on March 18th.
My mother's mom.. my last grandparent.

3. Had to cancel the 60th birthday party for my mom cause of my grandmothers passing.

4. Just a bad month.. Adios March!
So, today is April 3rd and the high temperature here in lovely Minneapolis was something lame like 47. WTF? I want something above 60 degrees already. We deserve it. We got a shit load of snow this year.. winter came early and seems to just be hanging on. My winter clothes are ready for the box.. NOW. My flip flops are begging to be worn.. although they have had appearances in the past few weeks despite the cold. OH.. guess what? Were supposed to get a snow storm this weekend.. Mother-E-ffer!!
My grandmother (left), Margie, passed away on March 18th. She was 86 years old.. almost 87. Yes, she lived a good life. The quick story: about a week before she passed, she was at home & felt the need to dust her china hutch. Only God knows why cause she could hardly walk, let alone bend over and dust. She lost balance and fell backwards onto her coffee table and broke her rib on the left side. She ended up in the hospital. While in the hospital, she developed Pneumonia.. NOT GOOD when your 86 years old. Well, she never recovered. Had she pulled through all of this, her quality of life would have been ZERO. She would have went to a nursing home (ICK), been on 100% Oxygen for the remainder of her life and she would have been miserable. We didnt want that for her. She worked hard all her life, she was a great mother, grandmother, wife, sister and Friend. Just look at her! She was the sweetest lady I knew (well, my mom is pretty sweet too I must say). My mom and her brothers decided to take her off the O2 and let her die (a couple days before, she stated to my mom that she wished God would just take her). Im so grateful that I got to be at her bedside, rubbing her forehead and hair when she took her last breath of life! I felt very much at peace the whole day I was with her when she died.. I didnt feel sad. Before I went to the hospital, my boyfriend (OH.. did I say that??) told me that everything was going to be ok cause God will be there with me. And you know what? Im positive he was there with me. It was a little overwhelming to watch my grandma struggle with her breathing when they took her off the oxygen.. and then I lost it.. as did all my relatives in the room with her. My mom looked at her (they were best friends) and told her "Mom, it's ok.. go to sleep and go be with dad"... argh.. it brings tears to my eyes now thinking about it.

Her funeral was this past Tuesday. It went very well. She looked beautiful as always! It was very easy for me to know she is somewhere running, walking, dancing and so much more with my grandfather and her other friends. It was always hard for me to see her in so much pain.. all the time. Now I know she's FREE! xoxo to my grandmother! She is missed sooo much!
Since you cant plan things like dying, we had to cancel my mom's 60th birthday party that was all ready to rock n roll. I was really bummed out about it because I put some time and money into this whole thing and was really looking forward to it. Obviously my mom was in no shape to Party on down.. so we made phone calls and canceled it. It will NOT be resecheduled. :( Maybe next year for 61.
About the ONLY good thing to come out of March (and im not sure this is all that great either) is MARCH MADNESS baby!! Yes, im an avid Basketball fan.. LOVE IT! And because I love it so
much, I lost my mind and decided to bet a case of beer with my brother-in-law on our brackets. We put our brackets up against eachother. I did AWESOME the first round... and then it all went downhill from there. I chose Louisville to take it all.. and those fools failed me! And guess what? I cant recover my points now cause im down too far, so I now owe my brother in law a case of freakin beer. dammit! Oh well, im sure I will get to indulge with him!
Did I mention that I now have a sweetheart? That's right folks.. I snagged me a nice fella! He goes by Scott, Scooter, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart.. etc.. more on him later cause Im getting ready to go watch a movie at his crib! lol.. He is the ONLY good thing to come out of March with me. We have known eachother for 6 months now.. just taking things snail slow. And it's all good. I have nothing bad to say about him today!

I leave you with a picture of US! My heart is full of JOY!
Peace, Love & Happiness!!

Sorry to hear about your grandmother. I have two grandparents that are still here and I often think about how things will change drastically when they aren't with us anymore.

Also, congrats are in order on the relationship front! Good luck and I hope everything keeps going well!

That goes double for me.

By the way, as far as the new boyfriend goes, don't kill him like you did the others and bury him out on the golf course.
