I won't be sad to see January go.

I already posted about my grandfather passing away at 96 years old on January 8th. What I haven't updated was that my uncle passed away at 48 years old just 2 days later on January 10th.

Hawkinson, Kenneth R. Found Peace Tue., Jan. 10, 2012, age 48. Beloved husband of Irene (nee Salapat). Loving father of Teresa and Anthony Hawkinson. Dear son of Richard Hawkinson and Joan (Gerald) Grund. Ken was loved and will be remembered by other relatives and many dear friends. Visitation will be held Sun., Jan. 15, at CHURCH AND CHAPEL FUNERAL HOME, 15250 W. National Ave., New Berlin, from 12 noon until 2:00 PM. Memorial service will be celebrated at 2:00 PM. Ken was a long time employee of Super Steel Products and currently employed at Enclosures Inc.

My dad went up to Maine for his family, my mother went to Wisconsin for her sister. I didn't go to either funeral, torn between what I should do and what I could do. Because as it turned out that was also a time of unpleasant upheaval in our home which has not abated, but in fact gotten steadily worse. I'll spare everyone the gory details.

The house goes on the market in April, eight weeks from now. There is so much to do and I have plenty of nervous energy to get it done now that my illness from the past week is easing.

I blame "Downton Abbey" for how tired I am though....
