Sono triste.

I went to see Mama Mia with a group of my girlfriends that play in my steel drum group. OMG. I haven't laughed so hard in such a long time. Not only was the movie hysterical, we went to a small local theater, and the old lady sitting next to me was a HOOT! She laughed, and clapped, and she sang along with the songs, but quietly so no one heard her. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you go check it out. Don't go alone. Take your friends, or your mom, or your daughter.. but go. Laugh. Enjoy.

School is starting tomorrow and I am tired already. It's going to be a good year, but again.. tired. So not ready for summer to leave yet.

On a sadder note, I got an email from my dad that my grandmother is going into a nursing home tomorrow. She really is in bad shape, and she has been, but my grandfather was adamant that she was fine and he could take care of her. In the past month she has deteriorated rapidly, and I won't be surprised if she is no longer with us at Christmastime. Alzheimer's runs rampant in her side of the family and it has broken my heart to watch her suffer with it. My heart is sad for my grandpa, who will spend his days and nights alone for the first time in 60 years. I can't imagine how hard this all must be for him. He told me when he came for Ms. Thang's party, that "I ask the big boss all the time, 'why are you doing this to her?' and I never get an answer." That almost broke my heart. I'm going to bed with a heavy heart tonight. Might talk to the big boss myself.

tell your grandpa, life is a great big tapestry. We only see one side, with the messy threads all tangled together.

when we get to the other side we will see the whole picture
