Anyone want a brother...

Thursday, May 06, 2021

Now 3 years after I had the gravestones put on their graves he decides they are on the wrong graves. He was sure we put dad next to his father. At this point does it even matter. When we got to the cemetery there were 2 holes dug. We put mom in one and dad in one. Maybe we put them in the wrong ones and when the people that made the plaques installed them we didn't go. I told them which cemetery and they told me which day they would install them so I'm sure the cemetery told them which 2 plots. Both were cremated and are next to each other in plots they purchased in 1952. I doubt anyone cares if the plaques are mixed up. My other brother did not respond to the text this morning pointing out the problem. I do not see it as a problem.

I did finish 12 bags today and now stand at 48 finished in the box ready to go. Another good day and I should have 60 and that should be enough. There are already 5 more started. Today my head took a wrong turn....am I just begging for attention by making and donating or did I do this because something needed to be done to honor people that worked thru the pandemic? My brain can play some pretty weird tricks on my heart sometimes.

thank fulls
1. remembering why I started the bag project...give at least 100 bags to people that deserve
2. I moved the red sheet so I didn't have to step over Buck every time I got up to go sew a while...he moved it back into the doorway.
3. sunshine today

Hair in the morning, a check that needs cashing, and a trip to the post office and then home to see if I can't hit that magic 60 mark and have Bailey come pick up the huge box of bags.

    If your brother keeps complaining about this, I too would tell him that he is welcome to investigate the situation. I'd probably also tell him that even if he is right you think that your parents wouldn't care if the stones were wrong. They know that you were all there when they were laid to rest. That is all that matters.

    In regard to the bags, I think that you are going a great thing by honoring the people who took care of others throughout the pandemic. I am sure that they will appreciate the fact that you did this for them. emoticon emoticon

    I'm with Fran - if it bothers your brother, he can certainly do the investigating himself to put his own mind at ease. And I just love Buck and his red sheet, dragging it around to his favorite spots where he can keep an eye on you!

    Families can get messy sometimes especially if there are spouses (in laws) involved. My youngest brother and I are on the same page but my other brother can be different. My sister is somewhere in between, but she was the one who helped our dad the most because she lived closest to him while myself and my youngest brother lived in different states. If your brother brings up the subject again, try to ignore him.

    Now your brother is concerned about which plot each of your parents were buried in. If he calls again you might suggest if he is so upset three years after the gravestones have been set in, then he could look into it himself---because it seems neither you or your other brother think it isn't a big deal. There always seems there is one in most families that picks about everything.
    Oh my today the humidity started creeping back into our area. Sure, just since I decided to do some heavy cleaning that needed to be done, well worked for over and hour, and then needed to stop, it wore me out. So tomorrow will need to get the floor in our bedroom dusted, and then a couple other quick things that won't take much energy.
    I really want to get back to sewing, have a skirt to do that I cut out before vacation. Plus a dress to cut out and sew. Also some other things I want to sew.

    It would be the prudent thing for your brother to drop it and move on. Less attention paid is probably the best thing. Change the subject if he brings it up again.

    Brothers can be a pain. I have 2 living and not helpful at all with mom and her care. It frustrates me but I still love them.
    I think you are right on about the donations as a thank you for those that have worked so hard despite the pandemic. Awesome job!
