It's been a really rough couple of weeks. My grandmother has been in the hospital since the end of October, and we thought she was getting better, but then we got a call on Tuesday night (December 6, 2016) saying that she had passed away. A bunch of family members came down for the service yesterday, and it basically ended up being the saddest family reunion we've ever had. I couldn't even bring myself to look at her corpse, because I did not want that being the last visual memory I have of her. I cried the first couple of days, but now it feels like a big chunk of ice has taken up shelter inside me, and to be perfectly honest, I prefer it to the crying any day of the week. It'd be nice if it decided to take up permanent residence there, so that I never have to feel again. We decided (could only afford to) cremate her body after the service, and we'll be laying her ashes next to her mother's grave. After that, I guess we just try to move on as best we can.
We've got a gofundme for the funeral expenses, so if anyone reading this would like to donate, it can be found here: www.gofundme.com/mary-beeles-f…
I've been off work since my grandmother died, and my boss is supposed to help arrange it so that I use my vacation time to cover most of it. I'll be going back on Thursday, and it's probably gonna be hard.
I'm still playing Pokemon Moon, of course, and I'm quite a bit further ahead than last time I posted anything. I've caught a bunch of different pokemon, and finally got my team fleshed out, while playing around on the third island. Most of my team is still female, and I'm still not sure how that happened, except in the case of my Salazzle, since only the females evolve. I'm really liking the Poke-Ride feature, since it's a lot more convenient than the HMs.
