Another big reason we took the trip was to be a part of my 89 year old grandmother's gigantic living estate sale. She moved into assisted-living housing last year and had been storing things in case she didn't like her new place. Well, now she is settled and enjoying her living situation. Mom and Dad planned to have the sale over fair weekend knowing we'd all be home to help out. My sisters and their kids did the majority of the work because Rheid and I came later in the week.

In fact, I couldn't think about many things too much or it felt too sad. So I chose to focus on the good memories and remember that stuff is just stuff after all.
