Thank you everyone for your condolences. It’s been a tough time for the family losing someone long before we should have. Our cousin’s mother and brother are taking his death particularly hard.
Yesterday as we were driving to Brantford our car started acting up. Figures doesn’t it? We’d driven about 2/3’s of the way there and while on the Hamilton Mountain the car started to sputter. Chris called his father to let him know where we were just in case the car totally broke down and after giving the car a short rest at the side of the road we tried it again and luckily it started up.
After spending some time with Chris’ cousins family we drove back to Toronto with Chris’ brother who came up from Chicago on Friday night. So we had a house guest overnight.
Unfortunately I was really sick yesterday. I was either too hot or shivering with cold. in other words I was having fevers one after the other and my abdomen was causing me horrible pain. I don’t know if it was purely my Crohn’s acting up or if I’m also fighting a bug on top of everything.
Given that I was in such rough shape yesterday Chris and I decided that I’d stay home today. I also didn’t sleep much overnight so I would have been a mess if I’d gotten up early this morning anyway. Chris and his brother took off again for Brantford sometime this morning. I have no idea when they left as when I finally fell asleep early this morning I was out for the count.
So I guess I’m going to miss the visitations today. Depending upon how I’m feeling in a few hours, Chris will either come back home tonight so that we can both go to the funeral in Brantford tomorrow, or else he’ll simply stay over at his parents and go to the funeral without me. It all depends upon how I’m feeling.
I hate to miss the funeral.
The other thing that will decide if I’m going to the funeral or not is our car! Chris’ dad was going to drop it off at a garage in Brantford for us this morning. Hopefully it’s been repaired by now, but if they had to order parts, perhaps ones that might not come in until late today or early tomorrow morning Chris won’t be able to drive back to pick me up for the funeral.
I hope the car is repaired and that it didn’t cost an arm and a leg. We’re a little NSF right now and really don’t need a big car repair expense.
So I guess for now I’ll just be here at home taking care of myself and the puppy as I wait to see whether I’m feeling well enough to travel tomorrow and if our car is repaired or not too.
