Highlight Reel January 3rd-9th, 2009 January 9, 2009

Saturday-  a day of sadness as my friend Karen lost her battle with cancer.

Sunday- the Vikings lose, the Wild win and I win 2 games of Can’t Stop over my family

Monday- Christmas break is over and life goes back to normal.  Went to my grandparent’s house and spent my lunch break with them. We had a Boy Scout leadership meeting tonight to  plan the next few months and elected new officers.

Tuesday- stayed home and watched the Wild game.

Wednesday- went to Karen’s visitation tonight. The family had made up some picture boards of her and her scrapbooks were there which is what she wanted.  Even though the circumstances were terrible it was nice to see the family again.

Thursday- Karen’s celebration of life was today at St Francis Church.  Father Kris did a wonderful job of capturing just who she was.  His kind and sometimes humorous words were a real comfort to me.  Afterwards, the burial was at St Mathias Church.  It was a very emotional day as I learned right before Karen’s funeral that our dog, Holly, had died as well.  We spent 15 years with her and it was very hard on the children.

Friday- I love Fridays.  Very seldom do I have anything scheduled on Fridays so it’s a nice opportunity to relax after the hectic workweek.
