So dh I had a cousin's birthday party all day yesterday, we decided to stop by the cemetary and make sure her spot still looked nice. First off, the gravestone hasn't been put down yet, so I need to call the monument place and make sure it's coming. I definitely don't anymore delay than necessary. Then, her spot was all grown up with weeds. Now it has been about 6 weeks since we've gone to her spot and spent some time there. It's an hour away, and I don't like to take ds with us. So ds and I got down on our knees and started weeding her spot and now it looks nice again. It'll look way better when the stone is at her place.
I couldn't help but think yesterday, when a relative was talking about having her baby in Sept, that I shouldn't have to be calling to check on a gravestone. I should be sleep deprived, and trying to breastfeed. Life is so unfair!
