I really don’t understand why weekends are so short…

I already talked about what I had going on this past weekend. I did all of that and a little more.

The result is a very tired Joz.

This morning I got up and went to the beautiful memorial service for my cousins’ grandmother. She was so beautiful and peaceful. I felt so much sadness for their entire family to see how much they missed such a loving woman.

Also, the service was in the exact same location my father’s service was held. With the same people at the funeral home taking the lead; it was all a little too fresh.

But I’m glad I went. My cousin Nina made a really beautiful memorial booklet of her grandmother with a lot of really great pictures and a really well-written biography of her grandmother. I was really moved by the words/poetry my Uncle wrote/read. And both my cousins Sarah and Nina spoke very eloquently in Chinese about their grandmother. I know she was very proud of them.

I had to run off and get to work (once or twice a month, I work at an auction house in Beverly Hills… my Dad was a long-time client and I started working there about 10 years ago after tagging along with my Dad to a sale) and by the time the auction was over, I was mentally exhausted.

After I got home from work, I noticed that the left rear tire of Yoshi’s car was flat, so we spent a little time waiting for the AAA guy to come to put the spare on. I had a little food and watched some TV to unwind. The TV watching resulted in a few hours of napping on the couch which put me a few hours behind in work, but also gave me a bit more energy to focus on some stuff I needed to handle.

What I didn’t do this weekend was any kind of studying/school work. Thank goodness I am only taking one course this trimester. Well, actually, I am also taking a weekend seminar in a couple of weeks, but the point is that I’m not doing a full-time academic schedule right now.

Oh, I forgot to mention that we did go to the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night. I had a great time, even though some of the program sucked. (Whose idea was it to do a karaoke singalong without checking to see if they could get the words to sync up right on the screens?) ABC, The Psychdelic Furs, and The Human League were all on the program, in that order. It’s a good thing because the show got better as the night went on. That said, in some ways, it felt like a long night.

I was going to post a photo of a GINORMOUS spider I saw at the Bowl, but I’m too tired to download the pics off my camera. So maybe someday you’ll see it on my flickr. But since I’m really bad about uploading pictures there, you might not.

The point is there was a big giant spider and I took a picture of it.

Hmmm. Obviously, I am tired again.

Time to try to sleep.

  • Joz, having to constantly deal with the remnents of your father’s death is also an invitation to celebrate his life and life in general. I know that’s the way I’d drag myself out of what you are going through. If death teaches us anything it’s that every minute is precious. You can’t get them back once they are spent. So my approach is to be in every minute I have and enjoy it to the max. I hope you can get past this soon and enjoy all of your minutes.


  • I’m glad that for once you’re not overloading yourself *snort*….Dealing with death is hard but along with death comes as Bud said a chance to celebrate life.


  • Joz,
    It meant the world to our family to see you, your Mom, and your brother this weekend. We’re so blessed to have you in our family. Thank you. Nina
