Sad

I spent a good part of Thursday driving up to Port Townsend WA and a good part of Friday driving home. I wish I could say it’s because of a happy reason, but it wasn’t. My grandmother’s second husband passed away Wednesday evening and I drove up to spend some time (albeit brief) with her.

I stopped at Sea-Tac on the way up to pick up my great-aunt, and managed NOT to scare either her or myself navigating my way through the freeway in Seattle. Yay anti-anxiety pills. Freeway driving of any kind used to give me panic attacks, and freeway driving in a city other than Portland was totally out of the question. The pills are expensive (due to a snafu with insurance, I’m paying out of pocket until they get around to reimbursing me… at $4.33 a pill, it’s not cheap), the hot flashes I get are uncomfortable occasionally, but still the pills are worth it.

Port Townsend is a cute little town, and the ride back down on Hwy 101 to Olympia was really beautiful. But the whole trip was just so sad. My grandmother and her husband were married for six years, and his passing was rather sudden. My grandma is so sweet — she heard I was coming shortly before going grocery shopping with my uncle, and she bought brussels sprouts because she knows how much I like them. It’s such a small thing, but considering everything else on her mind, it was really the sweetest thing to think of me. I enjoyed every last one of those brussels sprouts, too.

In the not-sad-news department, I’m finally back to making soap again, this time in the new workshop. I am so tickled with it. Too fun! At least not everything is depressing right now (work is weighing heavily).
