not much to say for myself

So my Grandma's funeral is tomorrow - we got her EXACTLY the same funeral as my Bapa had, right down to the matching casket. It seems like it's been a LONG arduous process, but really it's only been since Monday that we took over the planning (much to my surprise the Mortuary is closed on weekends ... I guess people only die during the week in their small Nor Cal town), and with the exception of today it's gone smoothly - a couple phone calls and a couple faxes. Today had a glitch, but it's all resolved now - my mother spent a couple hours on the phone hassling with the bank because they were supposed to "open" the debit card to accept the full charge from the Mortuary at once, but apparently the bank entered a wrong number! Anyway, the process is now pretty much over - thankfully.

We picked these out for the funeral:

because my Grandma liked peach
(calling sometime later today to make sure they've arrived, is the last task to be completed).

Other than funeral stuff .... 1) my dad's b-day present arrived today (his b-day is Sat). I still haven't settled on what to get him for Father's Day. And 2) I have a doc appt. (about my foot) a week from tomorrow.
