haaaaa haa..... Well sort of.. Today Darrell is working all day (as he will from now till Christmas - well I think tomorrow is going to be his last actual day off) Such is life as a retail wife... (wow, its going to be a fun day).
Anyway. Isabella is making cookies with her cousins and visiting with her Auntie Robyn who just got home from Florida on break from college. She was sooo excited to see her "Wobbyn"
As I said Darrell is working and I have a day to myself. There are so many things that I am wanting to do that I am just worn out thinking about them.
First going to the MOPS meeting, then returning some things and doing a little bit of shopping, stopping at the childrens resale shop to unload some of the recently outgrown clothes (did I mention my Bella is getting so big - thought 18-24 would last us through the winter - think again mommy!). Then back home, get ready for our church Christmas party.. I just cant wait for that.
At the party we give white elephant gifts.. you know stuff that you really dont want or need... those things that you are given and say "Thank you" and in your head you are thinking(wow.. what am I really going to do with that??)
I will post pics of that later!! Well off to my fun exhausting day of freedom. Man I miss Bella already!

Blah day...

Well I have never really posted about these days, but someone was telling me the other day that they think I never have them. I just lol when they said that. So here you go.. the Blah day

Today has been one of the hardest since the loss of our son. I got to thinking about the date and realizing that I would be 19 days away from having him. (you know if everything had gone per my plan) I know that he is in such a better place, but the grief is still there.

I am planning to go to his grave on the due date. I havent been there since they day we buried him. I just keep trying to push it down, but I know that this is something that I really want , and need to do.

On this note... ironicly just yesterday I really felt like I should start a Study-support group for those of us who are "Grieving the child we never knew" Amanda from hoyt family and I are really excited about this. If you want more details please email me... not really feeling up to explaining it tonight. But would love to email you more info!

Hope this blog finds you well!
