Kat, I missed a couple of updates, but I'm back (and thank you for the sweet PM's yesterday....I just wish we could have worked it out ).

I love the Main Street Electrical Parade. It was the first parade I ever saw or my boys ever saw. Unfortunately, we missed it last night, but I will NOT miss it this year if I can help it.

What a sweet woman to let Nemo stand in front with her children. I don't understand why more people don't do this? Don't they realize these little kids can't see over the big people? Mark and I always give our spots up, whether we are sitting or standing at the curb, sitting on a pillar's ledge, etc.

The house looks great! I love the boys' rooms. You and DH have done a great job!

Fingers and toes crossed that you get to see it!

That's so nice! And you know, I never even assumed that anyone would do that for us. We were lucky in that the people in front were sitting, so Nemo had a pretty clear view anyway, but offering to let him stand with her kids behind the people that were sitting, well that was really sweet, and unexpected.

However, I've heard that process can be just as much of a nightmare, so I guess I shouldn't think the grass is always greener.

Thanks for the compliments.
I've heard that too! But, I am tired of fixing other people's mistakes! I would rather make my own! We shall see - maybe some day!

I have to say, as far as fixer uppers go, yes we've found some "dumb" things but, for the most part, it's all been easy to fix. And the good thing in this sense is that we really liked the house, and my husband felt we'd paint anything we went into anyway and change it however we liked, this way we're really getting to know what's behind those walls, what's going on in that room, etc.

Starting from scratch could be so nice though.

(You're welcome.)

Actually I find that if I link everything, I seem to get more readers, and I know I love it when I can just blaze through a trip report like that.

Hey, folks. I'm sorry there hasn't been the consistent weekly updates like I had going on before. I've had a really rough week. One of my dear friends just lost her mother, and I went to the memorial service last night. Since I didn't want to bring the kids, I waited for MJS to get home, and went by myself. I'm never sure whether or not it's a good idea to do things like that by myself, but I am determined to be there for my friend.

I feel so badly for her. There's a lot of circumstances surrounding this loss...aren't there always, I guess...and so I'm trying to be the best friend I can right now.

Selfishly, any time I experience, or someone close to my experiences a loss, all I can think about is my mom.

And I've been having a really hard time, and thinking about her a lot these past couple of weeks.

We're preparing for Squirt's first birthday, which is the 26th, and I can't help but think that this is one more thing we're doing without her. My family has been so supportive and helpful in planning his party, which is the weekend after his birthday, but I can't help but want my mother.

Actually, there have been a lot of times this week that I have wanted my mother. It doesn't negate being grateful that I had her...actually, I feel very blessed to have had the relationship that we had...I would just like some more of it, thank you very much.

I thought...rather mistakenly...that once we got past a year, things would get easier, and I'm afraid that they really don't. Because all I can think about it is how much she would have loved to plan Squirt's party with me. How much she would have spoiled him just like she spoiled Nemo. How much I miss her, and how much my heart aches for the son that will never get to know her in person, only through us.

And we can keep her memory alive, and it's wonderful, but I still miss her so much. And it's times like this, times of great transition, that no matter how long it's been since her passing, I feel it the most.

Squirt will be one. He's starting to self-wean, so we won't be nursing much longer. I just can't believe this year has gone by so quickly, and although I'm sad, I can recognize the many blessings that we've had. We have been very lucky, we have been taken care of.

And I will be okay. I know that.

So, anyway, I'll try to get another chapter up before his birthday, because I have a feeling next week will be a little crazy pulling everything together. Just wanted to let you all know where I'm at right now.
