I'm glad I went

My sister, who I hadn't seen since last June, is in Kansas City this week for her hubby's grandma's funeral. It was very unexpected...BIL's grandma had a small stroke (she was 80, but was very independent), and went in for an angiogram. The angiogram showed an 80% blockage, so they started an angioplasty right away. They had problems getting the balloon to inflate, and then a blood vessel burst filling up her brain with blood, and she died.

I am sad that BIL lost his grandma, but I'm thankful that sister traveled closer to me. KC is only 3 hours away. So, I drove the 3 hours to see her yesterday. I was dreading the long drive (6 hours round trip for just a short visit), but I'm glad I went.

I got there about lunchtime, so we had a nice chat over lunch at Cheesecake Factory, and then we ran a couple errands to help her MIL. It was so cold! Definitely didn't feel like April, so we tried to stay inside as much as possible.

We only had a couple hours and then I had to take her back to her MIL's house...where we took the fun picture above...I CAN NOT believe my little sis is preggers!

Here's my sis w/ her hubby.

I LOVE the Cheesecake Factory and I so wish I had one here in MI! I went to KC for work last summer and fell in love with that C.F. in that nice downtown shopping center. Yum!
