I feel like I have been MIA lately. Not only on blogger but in my brain as well. Ever feel that way? Just way too much to do and you start to forget things. My Grandfather passed away on Dec 30th . It was the end of a long struggle for him and I am soooo glad that he can now be free of pain. We took another 8 hour car ride down to NC over the New Years for his funeral. At least this one was kid free! My Aunt Sherrie did an amazing job with all the planning of his service. He chose to be cremated so we had a celebration of life service. I learned more about this amazing man when I was down there. Like.....he wrote poetry. AMAZING poetry. He was also incredibly romantic...he wrote poems for his lady love. He has some here. His poem "TearDrops" was read at his service. It was just simply beautiful.
Not all was sad, I got to see some of my cousins that I had not seen in years. My cousin Stacy is soooo beautiful, it was so nice to see her. I think the last time I saw her I was 15 or 16. I also got see my cousin Nicki and I finally got to meet her wife. How wonderful they both were, so kind and friendly.
Aaannnddd.......we came home with a puppy. A little Cockapoo. She is sooo cute. Like a little chocolate bear. My boys are over the moon in love with her.
I of course love having another female in the house. If only a puppy. We named her Bella and I had to get the pink bow for her hair. I think she's going to be pretty spoiled....don't you?
