I'm Still Here

Hi there. Sorry for the lack of updates here, but I've been busy with the girls' fundraiser, setting up the girls' website (and by "setting up" I mean thinking of ideas and posts and then Melody does all the work, God love her), oh, and that work thing too, has kicked in again.

Things are okay. The rain isn't helping my mood. Mother's Day is this weekend and well, it hurts. But I'm not going to just sit and cry in a corner. I'm making brunch for Sugar's parents and grandparents. I know, it's Mother's Day and I technically shouldn't be doing anything, but I enjoy it, so I don't mind. It keeps me busy and makes me happy and isn't that all that matters?

Maddy got her hair cut for Locks of Love yesterday - 10 inches gone. And of course I didn't have time to upload the pictures, but they'll be on Flickr later tonight.

Keep checking back - things should settle down next week and I'll be back to a more regular posting schedule.

I'll be thinking of you this weekend. This has to be so hard for you.

Also, I heard on the radio this morning about the filing. I hope justice is served in that regard. 126 mph to a different accident scene that was already secured by other officers is just ridiculous, and it puts innocent people in grave danger.

hey, i'm thinking of you. i work at the mall part-time out here on the east coast. and i met a lady today who was looking for some anti aging cream. she had a picture necklace around her neck with her son's picture on it. a handsome fellow. he died last year from an infection. two kids. she began to cry. he was her oldest. i gave her kleenexes. she had suffered a stroke before he died. my heart went out.
i told her about you and how you write and that she should write perhaps it would help her. but she said she couldn't bc of her stroke.
i wanted to hug her and i told her we will all see each other again. i'll see my beloved mom and so on. she nodded. she said she believes that too.
so thank you for writing. i know this isn't easy. but you are teaching people helping people indirectly. not a job you asked for right?
wishing you well and happy mother's day. i know it is not easy as it wasn't for me after my mom died. but you have it harder and i know it is a tough day but i am always amazed at how you think through things and realize what you are NOT going to do. good for you.
the pictures are great. wow, i had 14 inches cut off when i was first married. and had that twice done.
she looks younger now.
