So my daddy died to day. How was your day?

Yes. I said my daddy died to day. Today was officially the second worst day of my life. This ranks right up there with the day my son died. 

How am I so calm you may ask? Valium, and lots of it! I'm still in "organizing mode" trying to shuffle people here and there and make sure people sign the register and make sure that I record what they bring and put the little stickers on their dishes so I can return them and accurately write the Thank You notes later....  

Tomorrow we go to make the arrangements at the funeral home. I wrote his obituary earlier, but I have a feeling there will be some disagreement over it because I included my step children in it. My mom and sister only like to claim one of my step children, but not the other "wild" one. The way I feel is that you don't get to choose. You either claim both, or none. 

In my opinion we either name off every single grand child (there are only 5 & 2 are my steps) or don't mention any of them by name and only mention the # of grandchildren. 

I don't want to start a family feud, but I know when the step kids read the obit and see their cousins' names in there and theirs left out, they will be hurt. 

So my day sucked big sweaty hairy monkey balls. How about yours?
