Sunday with the Grandsons

Dearest,
        Spent the day at Kristin's. Eric is old enough now to be really cute and demanding, his communication skills are to the point that I can understand ninety percent of what he says. The drive over there was murder, cried nearlyall the way, when I got there I wasn't sure that I could go inside. As soon as I heard Eric's scream of joy and that cherry cute hai Bumba I felt better. Played with the kids almost all day, gave Kristin a break. Pat's parents (read Mitzi) sent me a Thanksgiving card and a Christmas cactus, another plant, another Thank You card. I haven't finished the ones from the funeral yet.
I was nuking some gravy for dinner and when I took it out the top popped and the hot steam burned the palm of my hand. Quite a nice blister there now. Ever try to was dishes with a burned palm? Can't wash them in cold water. It also makes it hard to type. I'm going to disable this stupid "Caps Lock" key on your computer, drives me crazy.
Tomorrow is two months. Two months and one day since last we spoke. I'm having a hard time. Dr. Hans said to call her, I might. I gave Kristin all the creams, lotions, and perfumes. She was thrilled and said that she could use all of it though I must confess I don't even know what some of that stuff was.
Till we meet again, Your Ken

Ken, my grief counselor told me to very, very careful as we who mourn are prone to accidents. I\'m passing on the advice to you. A cut, now a burn... Please take care.
Blessings,
Linda

A day spent with the grandkids is great, But I agree with Linda be careful. I took another tumble on Thanksgiving. 3 only in 6 months. I really must be more careful, and so should you. Please take care of yourself Jane

Glad you could spend the day with the grandkids. It is so nice to view the world from their innocent eyes even if it is just for a few hours. Here is a tip..from an injury of my own with a cranky microwave....cover the stuff before you nuke it.

Nothing can brighten the day like a grand child. I hope you get to spend lots of time with them. Their smiles and laughter are contagious. You aren\'t doing bad for only 2 months in...I know you don\'t feel like it, but just being able to wash dishes, nuke your food, do your laundry and other chores, and showing up to work are all great accomplishments!

Ken, I think you are doing great for the amount of time that it has been. I also burnt my hand on steam from a tea kettle stupid me I put my hand right over the spout. I have also fallen down by tripping over my own feet. Sometimes I think our minds leave our bodies and we can\'t function in this world. Yes it dfoes hurt to put your burnt hand in dish water I guess we should just leave them for another time. Diane

Sounds like you have a nice family. I can\'t wait for grandbabies!
Grief can make us accident prone. We are in such a mental fog that we have to be very careful. I was always banging up myself too. Maybe better stick to takeout for awhile. lol

Must have been a blessing to hear the greeting of the kids...........it has been such a short time.......be kind to yourself, and do be careful..........minds are just not functioning as usual.............think of you as well as all of those who have joined this site since I did....am so thankful we have this \"safe\" place............
