road trip

Josh and I went down to H-town this weekend. We're still here, actually. We came down for one of my best friend's birthday. It's been really fun. Because of her job, she is staying in the Renaissance hotel, so we got to stay with her. She was so sweet. Her room had a king bed, so she asked for a roll-away cot thing and let us newlyweds have the king bed. Oh it was so comfortable!! And the service was great. But best of all, it was all free!! At least for us, anyway.

We also stopped by and saw my grandmother Shirley. It was kinda hard to see her. She seems to be getting into her last days. While we were talking to her, she kept getting us confused with other people, or forgetting who we were, or what we had done. It was kind of hard to talk to her, and tell her "no, I'm Katie. My mom hasn't been here for eight years." I just pray she's not in much pain. As much as I still want her around and alive, sometimes you just wish she could no longer be in pain, and be in a place where there's no pain. I don't know if that makes sense, or if it sounds mean or ill-hearted, but I really just want her suffering to be over.

We were going to go to Surfside Beach this weekend and say hi to Momma, but with the hurricane and all the rain, we aren't going to be able to make the trip. We were kinda looking forward to it, but we will just have to save it for the next time. But for now, it's time to watch a movie. I'll be back later, probably after Josh and I get back to Big D. Peace!
