Finally home after being gone for over a week, going from hotel to hotel after 8+ hour driving days and staying with ailing grandparents and crying with them.
My mom’s father, my grandpa Dave, passed away a week ago today. Alex and I were on our way to go see him in the hospital and we were just a few days away when he left us. We spent time with my grandma Judy, helping her with some of his things and keeping her company. It still hasn’t really sunk in. I had such a wonderful relationship with him and I still can’t imagine him being gone. Judy without Dave just isn’t right. I miss him so much. The doctors told us we had about three months and he was gone in under a week after that. Three months felt so sudden then.
School starts next week and I am just so behind on everything in my life. I have to drive to Seattle tomorrow for an appointment so I don’t even get to have a solid day at home after a week of solid driving. I have so much game team stuff to get caught back up on because I missed so many meetings being out of town and out of cell phone service. I have a huge stack of unopened mail stressing me out.
Here I thought I was going to have a nice month off where I could leisurely work on game art and catch up on comics. I guess that was silly to think so.
tl;dr death in my family, recovering from road trip, catching up on everything, school starts next week, anxiety explosion, not much art.
