Mrs A's Mum passed away early this morning.The family were with her at the bedside and I was here for Mrs A when she got home.Although Mrs A and I have been together 6 1/2 yrs I never really knew her Mum very well due to her alcoholism.I just wish things could have been different.Just back from her Dads place as Mrs A is staying there tonight and I'm home looking after the dog.
I was a bit annoyed at my Mum because when I called her to tell her she said she hoped the funeral wouldn't be on Friday ( my sisters wedding day) but in hindsight my Mum is so caught up in wedding fever I can forgive her.My Mum and Dad have always been great to Mrs A and despite a few initial misgivings about me getting together with a woman 12 yrs older than me with kids,they have been brilliant in welcoming her into our family.( 1st bouquet of flowers for Mrs A was from my folks)
Mrs A is insisting that should the funeral be on Friday I go to my sisters wedding as she'll have enough support from her brothers and family.Hopefully it's a bridge we wont have to cross.
I did play some poker last night but knowing Mrs A was due home meant my heart wasn't really in it.Dropped $50 at Ladbrokes when I made a full house with the hand Juice ( thanks for comment on yesterdays post btw) named after my Mum,K10 and was beaten by a better full house.I'd read an article on cardplayer about being careful in that type of situation ( boat over boat) but couldn't lay it down despite being fairly sure I was beaten.Won back $25 at Interpoker before grabbing a couple of hours sleep until Mrs A called with the news on her Mum and then came home.
My writing skills have never been great and I hope it doesn't come across as insensitive or crass to write about poker when Mrs A and her family are suffering.
Going to grab a bite to eat just now and maybe hit up a cheap sng or two.Back across to Mrs A's Dads tomorrow afternoon with Step A who we broke the news to tonight.That was hard because a death in the family is the one event adults can't cushion or make better.She ( and her brother who stays with his Dad) were a bit tearful but it'll take a while to really hit home.
That's all for now.
