First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who has sent me and my family prayers and thoughts over my mom’s death. I never knew how much I would truly appreciate those vibes.

The funeral will be Monday at 11, and after that, the kids go to spend the night at Lily’s house, and we will have the wake at Mary Todd’s Worker’s Tavern. I imagine it is my duty to get shitfaced drunk; hopefully the idea will appeal to me more on Monday than it does today.
After all, it was my mother who said at my wedding reception, “I’m not leaving til I fall down.” and she didn’t either.
So, I guess I better buy a fifth of Wild Turkey. sigh.
