A week...

I'm running a wee bit behind in life again. See that little black critter? Last week she told me it was time. She is 17 years old or older. She was starting to become miserable. It was time. So I wrapped a towel around her and glued her to me and that is where she was for about 3 days. I would put her down to make dinner or do this or that, but mostly she was glued to me. After the third day she closed her eyes and stopped breathing and she was gone. 

The day before we had finally picked a spot to bury her. So she was buried. And it's been tough. She has been such a part of my life for many, many years, and during the last few, you take care of her every need and then she was just gone. 

Just weird to have her gone. 

So I'm behind. I find myself looking for her. I keep finding mess after mess she left. So a lot of cleaning up that needs to be done. 

And then yesterday our lives kinda blow up. Neighbor came over, and she wants a list of projects done and she is unwilling to wait any longer. Hubby apparently said he would do the projects, but wanted to wait more towards spring. Because it's freakin cold outside. She wants this and this and that, and OH BOY. BUT talked her down and said one project at a time. So that was agreed on. First up is the front deck. So hubby today drew it out, and got prices and gave her a quote. She was OK with the price, and the project will start. So hubby has a part time job. Which is great, because we need tires!

Get that done and have her pick the next project. She has a list a mile long. 

The boys and I have been putting sets of legos back together. Going through books picking something and hunting for legos and putting them back together. I have many sets half done because we are missing pieces, so we move on and hope we come across that part. It's a nightmare, but we are making progress. 

Last week I was able to get the shelving unit from Costco. With Costco the fear is they will run out of something before you can buy it. So I rushed to save the money and we had enough last week. Oh the crazy time we had trying to bring it home. Let's just say we seriously considered tying a child to the roof of the van. We didn't but we came close. I'll have photos soon. Today I have been cleaning up the bedroom to make room for this thing. It's now all clear, now to bring it in and set it all up. I'm excited to have all my starts in one place.

And then there is tomorrow. Tomorrow is Tucker's birthday. So I'm off to bake a cake in a few. He demanded a cake. He all ready has his gifts. But he hasn't been able to play with them yet. Although time after time, I would catch him in my room on the bed just looking at them. 

And Monday, oh Monday. We will attempt Cole in fourth grade math. I think he can do it, but if he struggles we will head back to third grade math. But he has a math brain like his bother and mom. I actually think not too far down the road Cole will be passing Tucker in math. Oh why couldn't Tucker get a math brain as well?

Marcie, I'm so sorry to see your sweet friend has passed. We should all have such a gentle passing as the peace that you provided.

On a happier note, I send my birthday greetings to your son!
