Whoo hoo, a long weekend!!

I am out of here for the long weekend (I am actually gone, gotta love future posting). We are headed to NC to stay with one of my BIL’s so he and hubby can play golf on Saturday like they used to prior to marriage. 😉 My mom is coming so we will find something to do as my SIL has one of those not child/little people friendly homes where it looks straight out of Architectural Digest so you can’t really get comfy, KWIM?

Please pray for my Dad as he has a foot issue that is preventing him from going with us. He goes to the doctor on Monday with x-rays in hand but the doc thinks it may be a bone/heel spur so he really needs to not do too much walking and really could go but became sour when the doctor told him he couldn’t play golf…..men.

We will be back on Sunday so it is not too long but I won’t have internet access but I will have knitting and crochet and some reading. I am hoping to find some thrift stores and also the closest Joann’s to purchase a few pieces for a different texture baby blanket for my new niece. That’s right, all clearance fabrics are 50% until Monday and so is interfacing, just FYI!

Enjoy the weekend and may it be full with love, family, friends and crafts! 😀

Happy Birthday Little Brother!


Wow, today would have been your 34th birthday. It seems like just yesterday we were playing in the basement, learning how to drive and you were giving me, the older sister, money while we were at college. I miss you and I wish I was not so wrapped in me at the time to really hear your heart and understand the things that were going on inside your head. I am sorry for the loser guys that I exposed you too because you thought they were cool being that I was interested in them. Most of all, I wish I would have known the depth of your pain so I could have told you that tomorrow is another day and the mistakes of yesterday can be fixed and the hurts can be healed.

It is hard to imagine that it is almost 12 years since you took your life. While I will never know nor understand your reasons, you impacted a lot of people. Your organs went to some wonderful people and Mom and Dad are glad they listened to me. Your niece needed an organ, so who knew that giving yours would lead to me one day needing one for my princess. She is beautiful and she and your nephew know all about you and have seen your pictures. Oh, how I would love to have you here to be there uncle. They have older uncles from my hubby’s side (you would like him too) but you would be their coolest and favorite, I am sure. Your nephew is like you in many ways and sometimes Mom calls him by your name. I do hope that you are hanging out in heaven and taking good care of my son Malachi. I only got to know him for an hour but the 29 weeks of carrying him made the hour worth it.

There is so much to tell you but the most important thing is that I love and miss you dearly and always. Happy Birthday Little Brother!!
