Blogging Hiatus

I have been taking a CNA class all week, and I will be in class and doing clinicals next week as well. A short blogging hiatus has ensued. Will return as soon as I master all my new skills which include but are not limited to: pulse and respiration, blood pressure, perineal care, bed bathing, and etc.

Crafty Goodness

Just received my Gauche Alchemy order and I am in
♥ LOVE ♥ ...seriously
They had me at Hello
The kids were ecstatic because they thought the Postman delivered us pizza (the box resembles a pizza box, at least to a 9 and 10 year old).

Once I opened the box I was elated. It was even wrapped neatly. I totally felt like I was opening a gift and at their prices it was practically true.

For the love of crafty holiness run and place an order....did I say I was in love ♥ (have a pic to post but need to find my connecty cord thingy...yeah I'm all technical and stuff )

13 years

Another year
Another anniversary
tough day
always is
wonder if that will ever change

I love my first born son so much
forever and always

I wonder what he would be like
what sports would he play
would he even like sports at all
what would he look like
what would his personality be like
serious, organized, type A
or goofy and spontaneous

I miss him
I wish he could still be here with me
but my wishing doesn't change things
my only comfort comes from believing
I will see him again

Today I hugged my other children tighter and longer than usual
and today they let me without pulling away
I needed that and I think HE knew it
Thanks BIG GUY (I like to call God that sometimes)
back story:
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
