7 Quicktakes- the late Saturday Edition

Join Jen and the other Quicktakers over at the Conversion Diary.

1. Mr. Pete was gone from Wednesday to late Friday night. He was out of state trying to salvage some of my father's estate from the hand of my EFC. How successful he was remains to be seen.

2. While he was away Mr. Pete got to meet many of my cousins. I know none of them as I did not grow up close to my father's family. But it seems to me, the more I learn about my father, he wasn't a very nice person. And I guess I sort of always knew that. We never got any child support growing up and I only saw him a handful of times. I knew that for him, it was never about my mom, and sister and me. It was always about trying to get more property, or trying to screw somebody else out of there's. I'm not sure why it took so long for me to get it.

3. I will have to die before Mr. Pete. Because if he goes first, I will never sleep soundly again. I really could not sleep much while he was away.

4. Sam plays the organ tomorrow for church for the very first time. He has a very short, very sweet, very challenging piece to play as a postlude. I watched him practice today and it is amazing to me how fast and accurate he is playing with his feet! And considering his feet are size 15's that is quite something to see!

5. Calvin stepped to the plate on Thursday and actually took his siblings to their music lessons and choir practice so that I could work while Mr. Pete was away. I think it was the first time that his ability to drive people places actually benefited his siblings in a good way. It was very nice.

6. Calvin starts his first EMT job on Monday.I am very proud of him. I hope this turns out to be just the experience he needs for this time in his life. I also scheduled him for a hepatitis vaccine on Thursday to continue his series.

7. I signed up to be a contributing photographer for the Find a Grave site. Besides finding the graves of famous people, Find A Grave also lets regular people place information and pictures about their own families and loved ones. So I got my first one on Friday and Izzy and I went out trying to find the grave of one Baby Jane Pealy. We weren't very successful though. Although I know the general area this little one is in, I could not find her headstone and it could be that she is in an unmarked grave. I am planning to go back when the snow melts. Isadora was quite enthusiastic about helping me!
