As expected, my grandfather passed last night. My dad got back home this evening, and we're going down to LA for the funeral. I'll be gone Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Meaning tomorrow I get to go in to work and tell them I need those weekdays off (as well as Wednesday, because I have an appointment I had put in a time-off request for and I don't want them reneging on that), and if they have any problem... no big loss for me.
Well, I probably won't put it exactly like that ;) Besides, I want to be around til my last day, not just because of the money but because I want to get a little something for my two favorite kids. Just a little stuffed animal or some stickers, something like that. And since I know one of the kids' mom pretty well, I'd like to offer to do any emergency babysitting she might need on the weekends.
Was at the school til 5:30 today because of high counts. Tomorrow I'm 10:30 to 4. Sounds heavenly.
Okay, off to bed... or at least a cuddle with Mr. D'Souza (this is a really terrific book).
