What are your kids going to be for Halloween? What are you gonna be? Any fun plans for Halloween?

What's your favorite fall activity?

Have you started thinking about Christmas cards? Do you do them?

So apparently they want the grandkids to be pall bearers. Not really sure I feel comfortable doing that, but my sis already said yes, so I guess I better. There are only two boy cousins so I am a little afraid of how heavy it will be.
They also want grandkids to read scripture/share stories at the visitation/funeral and I really don't feel comfortable doing that at all. One, I get MAJOR anxiety getting up in front of a lot of people and two I know I will be crying and won't be able to do it w/out breaking.

dyk there are usually 6 or 8 pall bearers, so will be heavy, but I am sure you can do it.
dyk write something, would dh go up with you to read, or could you have someone else read what you wrote?

Dyk - my cousins & I were pall bearers for my grandpa's funeral...you basically follow the casket out & then the funeral home will help lift the casket into the car..same at the graveside.

Dyk - it's hard to talk at the visitation & funeral but write down some of your favorite memories & that will help. People are expecting you to cry so it okay to cry.

Dyk - I'm so sorry.

Dyk - it"'s not that I don't trust my in laws it just that I already had something in mind so thought it would work.

Dyk - also frustrated that my in laws will make time for their daughter but she doesn't appreciate them. Which is why I never feel I can ask them to do stuff bc they are so busy,

DYK yepee for the Chinese progress....you will pick it up in no time I bet?

DYK I am sorry about the disagreement?

DYK there are a couple of things I've told my DH I take VERY seriously....car seat and pool safety are the top too?

DYK I have said if he thinks I'm too OCD about that stuff it's a good thing to be OCD about because it's about safety?

DYK I would point that out? :)
