VSG surgery Family and loss

The scale is on fi-yah this week!

I've been having so much fun with The Kid lately. Now that PT and I both have our own cars again, things are SO much better in the household. Yesterday my favorite guy in the world and I walked all around an outdoor mall and did a little bit of shopping. After that, he had sushi for the first time ever and he LOVED it. That's my boy!

I've been holding on to this for a few days, because it never seems like the right time to talk about it. There never really is a good time to talk about something like this. I have to go to a funeral sometime soon. My great uncle died last week.
i hope he has good memories as a kid the way that I do
My uncle lived in the country and we had so much fun visiting him as little kids. One of my earliest memories is being at his place, riding horses, and crying because I stepped in horse poo while wearing sandals. I can vividly remember getting my foot hosed down and boohooing like my life was over. I couldn't have been any older than about 3 or 4....hmmmm.....As I got older we weren't really close, but that doesn't take the sting away. I really hurt for my grandmother, though.
She made of arsenic and old lace. She is of the shoot first ask questions later camp but she is as beautiful as she is tough- old, movie star, beautiful like Lena Horne. They just don't make women like that anymore and I love her. She's a heroine in somebody's fiction, only its her real life. She's scrappy, resilient, resourceful, tough as nails, and will be on your ass like "D" on dead-that's from both ends- in a split second. But no matter your constitution, something like this is never easy to bear. I'll be fine, I know I will, but I just don't want her to hurt.

There are a few more family things happening in my life that will take me out of town and on the road, so just keep me in your thoughts and I will keep you posted.


  1. Baby Girl --I feel you and feel for you!

  2. Sorry to hear about your uncle. *hugs* But I totally have similar horsey memories. :-)

  3. Sorry to hear about your families loss. Hang in there!

  4. Praying for you. I'm sorry for your loss. Here if you need me.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. Remember to take care of yourself during times of sadness. Safe travels...

  6. Im thinking of you. Im sorry your family has lost such a beloved member and I pray comfort for all of you.

  7. I'm here love...what to say but it will sting less over time and like you mention, only the smiles will remain.


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
