See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I lost my grandpa a week ago today, I dont know how to describe the relationship we had except that we were very close. I talked to him and grandma daily even though we are 2 states away. I come from a very large and close family were my cousins were more like brothers and sisters than cousins think big fat greek wedding. Growing up we saw alll of them on a weekly if not daily basis and birthdays and holidays were huge. My grandpa was the patriarch , and was also well known in the city and state even. I was in TX the entire week and just got home to CO yesterday. I stayed with grandma the whole making sure she ate and slept and was able to talk if needed. It may be weird but I've never lost a close family member since I was 6 and have never dealt with grief before but it has a huge hold on me.
I was very snappy at DH the whole time in TX, ( actually I was pretty snappy to everyone) and have absolutely no patience with him ( the kids are ok for some reason). I got home and all I want to do is go back to TX ( lived here 5 yrs and never wanted to move back until now), I want to kick my mother in law out of my house and leave my husband and move in with my mom. I cry all of the time and and am dreading going back to work tomorrow. I am extremely depressed. I've been having a few issues with DH but nothing major and MIL was driving me crazy but now I cant stand to look at her. Is this just normal grief? I've never had to deal with it and never been depressed but it is overwhelming me right now. DH seems to think its been a week and I should just be able to jump back into everything. I'm so lost right now. Also, this was a surprise and Grandpa had not been sick,
