Yesterday a friend was out running errands and came home and found her husband had passed away.

She has a heart of gold and I am heartbroken for her and her family.

This caused me to toss and turn all night long last night.

I just can’t imagine what they are going through.

It saddens me to know that the funeral will be at Noodle’s old school church.  I can not go back there.  At least not in this situation.

Mama  B and I talked about it for a long time last night and decided we would go to the viewing / rosary but not the funeral.

I know if we did show up at the church it would cause such a buzz that it would completely take away from the purpose of the day. 

This is one of those things that makes you want to scream at all the people who have caused havoc in our lives for so many months now “Don’t you see how short life can be? Enjoy what you have rather than trying to make everyone else miserable”.

Please keep this family in your thoughts. They are some good peeps.


Noodle has been “sick” for two weeks now. She missed almost a week of school and still has a cough that will make your chest hurt listening to her. Her initial diagnoses was bronchitis. I am afraid it has turned into something worse.  Hubs and I are leaving at the ass crack of dawn Thursday morning for a much anticipated weekend of fun with friends  I don’t feel bad leaving her behind I feel terrible leaving her if she doesn’t feel better. I called the doctor at exactly 8:00 this morning when the office opened and they can’t get her in until Thursday afternoon, so Grandma will pick her up after school and take her to urgent care they have way better doctors that our what our primary care is anyway


In May they came to see us.  Thursday morning we are leaving  to catch our flight to blaze a trail around their stompin’ grounds.  If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would meet one of my besties on this crazy thing they call the internet I never would have believed you. Today, I can’t tell you how happy I am our paths crossed and that we are lucky enough to hang out with them again!  Is it Thursday yet???  We have never been to the east coast for longer than a lay over and even Hubs is starting to get giddy about it.


I doubt that I will post again before we go.  But I promise pictures, lots and lots of pictures when we get back.

    My heart breaks for your friend.

    Hope Noodle feels better. C’s not in traction, so if you had to leave someone behind, he can care for her 🙂

    Dude…I’m totally stoked. T.O.T.A.L.L.Y. Can’t wait to see you!
