a very long day

This has been one of those days that seems about 40 hours long. It's been about 18 hours since Cat's grandfather passed away. In that time we've been running around crazy to get travel arrangements made (the tickets cost a fortune), the kitties taken care of (thank you, Ben and Conni), dinner (oh yes, food, mustn't forget that), packed for the trip... and yet it's anyone's guess if I'll be able to sleep tonight.

We leave tomorrow evening. The wake is on Wednesday and the funeral on Thursday. One or the other of us will probably post updates as warranted.

At least the long wait is over.
