In which I do not want to take my paid funeral leave to go to Doris' funeral

I get three days of funeral leave from work, but I don't want to take it because I am the Worst Person Ever.

1. I have a lot going on at work.

2. The weather here is finally nice.

3. I cannot bear the idea of three days with Ted and Sly.

4. I have to go. I have to. Primo is my husband and I love him and this is one of the things you do when you love someone - you support him in hard times.

5. Flying is a pain in the neck.

6. This will cost us money.

7. Someone will be stuck cooking for everyone in that house and I am guessing it will be me, although at least that will give me something to do.

8. I have to go.

9. The only person I like in Primo's family - Stephanie - won't be staying at the house because she lives 15 minutes away.

10. Maybe I can stay with Stephanie.

11. I do not want to spend time with Ted and Sly.

12. I have to go.


  1. I hope you got to stay with Stephanie or that she visited a lot with you at Sly's house. It's good to have love, support, and validation when there's a whole lot of crazy going on around you.

  2. Yes, hope that Stephanie wish worked out. Or that you made Sly buy take-out. Or that you cleaned Sly's house like a mad woman and threw everything away.

      Ooooh, I hope you did that and threw away all of the hidden liquor bottles, Goldie!

    2. ...after first taking a photo and sending to his doctor ;)

    3. Oh you guys. I like throwing away MY OWN STUFF. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to throw away the clutter that belongs to someone I don't like?

    Actually, you DON'T (didn't) have to go. You probably wanted to go for Primo's sake more than you wanted to avoid Ted and Sly, and that's OK, but personally I find it easier to accept decisions I don't like when I fully consider the alternative. (YMMV, of course.)

    I hope it worked out -- I'll bet Stephanie would have been glad to have someone sane to keep her company.

    1. You are correct: I went for Primo and he is way more important to me than Sly and Ted. And, I reminded myself, I would for sure get more material for the blog.
