family and funeral.....

i have once again failed to be a regular blogger....maybe now after all the crap thats happened in the last week or so i can try to be more regular about it....


i don't know what my last post was right off the top of my head.


as you see, this post is titled "family and funeral". That is basicly what this past week has been.

Last monday, my mom got a call from my aunt saying that their aunt (who, i believe was mentioned in my last post) was not doing very well (i.e. the doctors had done all they could for her) and that if my mom wanted to see her she need to come asap. My mom and i decided that i would stay home, since i had seen her just a couple weeks before.

Early the next day plans changed. My aunt called and told my mom that their aunt died early that morning. So i hurried to pack and we left the next day.

My mom's cousin and his wife and kids also came up along with his brother (my mom's other cousin) and his wife and my uncle and aunt.

They had the veiwing on saturday in Virginia (were my mom's aunt lives) and then the funeral was scheduled for monday afternoon in Huntington, West Virginia (where pretty much all of my family is from, but no longer lives there).

We all got to West Virginia sundat night and decided to got get food. Some guy, at the hotel we stayed at, suggested that we go to this seafood place that served really good food. Well when we passed the seafood place, it appeared to be closed. I am so glad it was because it didn't look like a very nice place.

The we decided to go to the place right next door called Chili Willi's. Strange name, right?

i Personally really enjoyed being there with my family. It was quite enjoyable.

Then sunday was the funeral. It was a small little graveside service by the pastor of the chirch that my great aunt attended when she lived there.

After the service we went back our seperate ways. My mom and i went back to her aunt's house and came home last night.


On a happier note, (but not an exciting one, mind you) i start school in three weeks. I still haven't finished my summer reading and i have tow good sized writing assignments to do...HELP!!!!


UNTIL NEXT TIME: adios (is that spelled correctly?)
