An Emotional Day
Today was definitely an emotional day. I blame it on the hormones because I know I am about to get my period. My mother in law and B shed tears over my father in law once again. Seeing my mother in law shed tears for her late husband reminded of the movie, P.S. I Love You and invoked feelings in me that I really dread feeling.
A few days ago, my mother in law dug up my father in law’s remains to be transferred to a better place. He was laid to rest the first time in a public cemetery, and the reason my MIL thought of transferring my FIL is because the public cemetery is getting too crowded and frankly, just plain ugly. She felt her late husband deserved to be in a better place. So for those questioning her judgment, shut the f*ck up, his her husband, she can do whatever she wants, besides, it’s for the better. My FIL’s new resting place boasts a breathtaking view as well as people who will make sure his grave is not vandalized in any way. Unlike in the public cemetery where his grave was often used as a dump site for other people’s mess and was robbed twice before. What was stolen, you ask? A bench made of washed out pebbles and the gate. Who the hell steals a cemented bench and a gate from a graveyard? Sick people, they roam the streets! Now that my FIL has been transferred, he’ll be better off and we’ll be able to spend more time on the site even with the kids because it looks like a park where we can go for a picnic.
