kshandra: long-haired woman silhouetted against a stormy sky (Bad)
Left LA around 11ish this morning; arrived at Offhand Manor about an hour ago. I drove the entire route, after [livejournal.com profile] murphymom and #1 Son split driving duties on the way down. (As I noted to both of them, I spent eight years driving 8-10 hours a day for a living - and always ended up back where I started. So this was an improvement.)

The funeral was..."lovely" seems an inappropriate word, but it's the best one I've got. It went much better on an emotional level than I had feared it might. The rest of the trip, OTOH.... I am so not ready to discuss what happened yet; suffice it to say it involved an Emergency Room visit and very little sleep last night. [livejournal.com profile] kor27 is a Hero of the Revolution for having been my sanity anchor after [livejournal.com profile] gridlore had to go to sleep; honorable mention goes to [livejournal.com profile] firestrike for fielding the first round of panicky text messages until he had to turn in as well.

Before I left work on Friday, I let my supervisor know that there was a possibility I wouldn't be in tomorrow; I'm emailing her to let her know that has now become definite, because I am certainly in no frame of mind to be dealing with people yet.

*soothes* Sorry things didn't hook up while you were here - there will be other times, hang onto that 'have a beer with me' ticket for then.

Heck, I could have contacted you again when I got up at 0200, but I was hoping you were long since abed...

even Johnny Depp and Antonio Banderas couldn't keep me awake....

What? In person? You must have been tired...

I assume by "lovely" you mean that the fine lady got a send-off worthy of her. Good!
