My grandpa died today. He's been going through a lot the last couple months, but I don't think anyone thought he would go so soon. He was taken to the hospital Thursday night with an infection but we didn't know how bad it was. And he passed away this morning.

I haven't had to deal with a death this close to home since my other grandpa died when I was 7. I wasn't sure how I would deal with it now that I'm older, but I'm doing alright I suppose. I'm crying a lot, and feeling really sad for my dad too, but I'm better when I can get my mind off it and distract myself with other things. It's just hard. It's like I can't really believe he's gone.

The play I'm in was canceled tonight because of the weather. It's been snowing insanely over here which is just making everything more difficult. The whole city is basically shut down. There's cars getting stuck on almost every street. It's supposed to stop by tomorrow I think and we have a matinee performance. I'm not sure that people will show up, but we'll see. On Friday night we had about 10 people in the audience. We probably should've canceled then too, but we didn't. Okay, well. I just thought I'd update those who read this. If anyone does.

Claudia, I'm sorry to hear that hun. I'm sure you made him real proud. Not a doubt in my mind.

Well, the snow sure looks crazy. To the point where it's not even fun. That is almost beyond belief!

Anyway, big hugs, and I hope you're ok x
