African funerals are long, tedious affairs that take days of preparation. Then there are events that happen afterwards - family conferences, the ceremonial changing to mourning clothes and the shaving of hair for those required by tradition.
In general, we're OK. Baby arrived in Joburg on Sunday morning. So I carted her off to Phokeng to stay with Mma. I think my mother needs a reminder that the next generation is thriving ( following the death of my cousin) and Baby needs a reminder that not everyone close to her will die too soon. Some people do get to enjoy their twilight years.
As for me, I still have a lot of work to catch up on before I close for Christmas. I had to cancel a few meetings and ignored some admin tasks that help my business tick over late last week. Now I'm catching up with them.
Give yourself time.
Hey Damaria, sad to hear you and your family are going through a rough time. I hope things get a bit easier with time.
