Dear June

20 Jun

If we would have “met for coffee” five days ago, I would have told you that June had been pretty uneventful. Sure, Logan had a field trip to the Detroit Zoo and we went on a couple outings ourselves, but in the grand scheme of things, there wasn’t a whole lot to report.

This past Sunday, though, my maternal grandmother passed away. From when it was decided that they would make her comfortable to when she died, things happened swiftly, but in a lot of ways it did not come as too much of a surprise. My grandma has had more than her share of health problems over the years, and this past year it became evident that she had Alzheimer’s on top of everything else. The silver lining to this situation is that because my mom has coordinated many a funeral, my grandma was able to entrust that with her. That will be happening tomorrow, for the record. If you’re the praying sort, by all means say one for my family. We might have been mentally prepared for this, but that doesn’t make this situation an easy one, and we certainly won’t miss my grandma any less either.

Despite how this past Sunday ended, for the most part Father’s Day was a pretty good day. As per usual, we went to my in-laws’ for a get together, and then the boys spent most of the duration of day connected at the hip. But that’s not the only time they (or we) have spent together! Logan’s gone to work with his dad on several occasions, we went back to the Children’s Zoo, and we went putt putting one Saturday, too. Next Tuesday is Logan’s last day of first grade, so I’m sure more fun outings are around the corner.

Speaking of school, Logan’s definitely ready for summer vacation, but at least they do a good job at keeping the kids engaged. Last week, for example, was Relay Recess so there were spirit days, a picnic– there was even a tank where a lot of the faculty got dunked. Still to come is a water activities day, and there will be a movie and some popcorn on their last day, too.

A movie I recently watched? Iron Man. For a while now I have been wanting to watch all of the Marvel movies in somewhat or a chronological order, and my friend Amanda has been more than happy to indulge me. Originally I was hoping we could get together this week to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but for obvious reasons I’m going to be in need of a raincheck. Maybe come “Dear July” we will have made a much better dent in Mission Marvel.

In the meantime, TV shows I’ve been watching as of late include Pose, American Woman, and The 100. I’ve read a few books since Dear May, too. When we “last met for coffee,” I wrote that I was reading Alice by Christina Henry, and since then I finished that and its sequel, and then I also read Shout Down the Moon by Lisa Tucker. I am now reading Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin.

I don’t think I have much else to report besides that– like I said, up until recently June had a bit of a “no news is good news” thing going on. While Logan finishes the school year, his dad and I continue to do work in our respective fields. It may not be exciting, but that’s hardly a complaint, you know? For the record, the transcription stuff is still going pretty smoothly for me. It’s hardly a dream job, but I do love being able to help financially a bit.

On that note, I think it’s time to look into a file to transcribe today. Take care, and be sure to tell your loved ones that you love them.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
