So as I was bringing the dog to the vet and groomer today I turned on the radio. The song that was on is one of my favorites, but it's hard to listen to it these days. The song is Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman. If you don't know it you can check out the lyrics here or even listen to it here. The part that really gets me these days is "You give and take away..." Anyway, so that song was on, the end of it and then it ended. But all of a sudden I just totally got so sad I could've bawled right there driving by Wal-Mart! I'm telling you this so you know that's it is just random things that trigger a 'memory' or trigger the emotions. I was also thinking how the last time I took Daisy to Petsmart I was still pregnant. It's like it just floods your mind sometimes. You don't even try to think about it, it just pops into your head. Those of you who have been here, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Also, we only needed to get 2 cemetery plots. The babies will be buried in one spot together and then when I die I'll be buried with them (I guess normally they are 'with' their mother). So that was cool and saves us $200! Thank you VERY much Mom for doing all this legwork for us!!! What a great help she is! She went today and picked out the plots. I'm sure that wasn't easy for her. Like, "Hmmm, where do I want my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren buried?" I couldn't imagine.

So that's the 'day'. This evening, providing Zach gets home on time (another post is needed for THAT) I'm going to go and get a pedicure with my neighbor! I haven't had one in over 2 years (I don't think I've had one since before we moved here) and I'm really looking forward to it, especially after how stressful this week has been!

Thats got to be so hard to have those constant reminders all the time especially when it something that is your favorite that can bring sadness. That is wonderful news that you are able to save money and that your mom is doing all this for you. Hope Zach gets home in time tonight so you are able to get your pedicure. I have never had one, you believe that.I was thinking that the other night how I never take time to pamper myself, I need to start

I am OK said...

I have friends coming to visit in August and I was telling them that the Air Force Memorial is really cool and then all of the sudden I remembered, I was pregnant last time I was there. I choked up and muted the phone. Then I rang my own doorbell and said , I have to go.

It is great that your mom could help you. She really is always on your side.

glad you loved the pedi! (I saw the FB update :P)
