It has been a long, hard, tiring, HOT day. We started off with Grandmommy's service at 10:00 this morning. It was so good - and a good start to some closure. Even with the visitation yesterday I didn't really feel like she was gone. Today, I really did feel it. Then we jumped into our cars to drive to the DFW National Cemetery for the burial. Since my granddaddy is a WWII vet, they decided to be buried there.

After the service at the cemetery, we went to my aunt and uncle's house (my dad's brother) to visit a bit and eat dinner. Then we got back in the car and drove back to Abilene. We got here about 9:00 and are just worn out.

On a very exciting different note, though - I finally made an offer on the house that was accepted! So, tomorrow begins the craziness of getting everything done to be ready to close in a short three weeks. I can't wait!!!
