    So my grandma who raised me died about a week

    ago, and I'm not really upset, I never was really. I guess I kinda saw it coming or something. Anyway it's not hitting me as hard as it is the rest of the family. I'm 16 but right now I feel like I'm kinda everybody's rock.

    My husbands father passed away this morning.

    He seems to be doing alright and I will get him through it along with the kids. However it brings back a lot about myself losing my adoptive father. Which I will not talk to them about at this moment in time. Instead I will just write it out which is usually what works best...
