Johanne's Journal, 08 February 2011

My Aunt's funeral is tomorrow. I've tried on every nice outfit I own and nothing fits. Would it be inappropriate to wear slacks (a friend gave me some nice, smaller, hand-me-down pants) and a nice sweater? (Sweaters that are too large don't look quite so bad as a dress that's too large.) I know it would have been when I was younger.

I think that's fine. I wore slacks and a dress shirt to the last funeral I went to and didn't feel out of place at all. Can any of the dresses be salvaged with a belt? So sorry for your loss :(

Jo, slacks will be just fine...what you wear is not realy important...what matters is that you are there. You are in my thoughts and prayers, dear friend! Love you! {{{{HUGS}}}}

Thanks everyone. I didn't want to be disrespectful. Kate, they're all HUGE through the shoulders and, since they were long anyway, almost touch the ground now. I have one jumper made of 70% silk/30% linen that I'm going to cut up and make something new out of. It has straight lines and the fabric is beautiful. The others are made of too many separate pieces to do anything else with. I'll just donate those.

Hi Bren. It's been a horrid day in a horrid week. When I got home from the funeral, my daughter was having another crisis. I'm on my way to bed. I'm afraid I feel a little shattered. Thank you so much for the love. You have no idea how much I need it right now. 'Night dear.

Abba, I'm hoping things will damp down for a while. I'm going away this weekend. I just have to get out of the atmosphere at home.

Z's, I will be. I just need to take a deep breath. Thanks for your concern.

Bren, I'm alright, just very drained and tired. I have no idea what I'm going to do about my daughter. My friend's memorial is this Saturday. I'm going to the one they're holding in June instead. This is just too soon after my aunt's. Love you too.
