It's been awhile since I have updated....mainly because things are going really well...we have had to postpone the adoption of our grand daughter til after the new year....when it rains it pours....hubby just started a new job 3 weeks ago...the adoption is going to cost us the most and we have to put tired on our car before winter and we are also shopping around for a van....the car is getting cramped with Angelina's carseat...not enough room to move around...it's a small car (Pontiac sunfire) so we really need a van which means another car payment...thank goodness the sunfire is paid off...so we have to put aside the money for the adoption which will be around $2000. My daughter is doing well...she has left the maternity home and is living with her fiance...they just upgraded to a bigger apartment but can't move in til Sept.1...the apartnment needs some minor repairs and painting. My grandson Aidan is getting so big...he's 9 months now and crawling everywhere. Angelina will be turning 2 soon...August 4 so we will be heading back home (3 hours away) to stay with my parents this coming weekend and we are having a birthday party for her at my parents...I am so looking forward to seeing my family...Angelina is just talking up a storm. My youngest daughter Brooke who still lives at home with us is going to be starting an apprenticeship soon in child welfare...she will be earning as she is learning her trade...she will be hands on for 4 days of the week and one day of week is devoted to classroom....she will be turning 18 soon also (Aug.15). Hubby had some minor toe surgery...had to have his big toe nail completely removed because of ingrown nail....but he is healing quickly and with no complaints...go figure...lol...a man who doesn't whine or complain...haha...anyway that's the update...as for me? well I take one day at a time and enjoy Angelina...she wears me out and I am tired alot of times...but I really can't complain...I am getting anxious to go back to work...however she needs me too much...so in 2 years when she starts junior kindergarten my days will be open so I can get myself a part time job while she is in school...being it's summer it's so much easier to do things with her...which means other things get neglected...like housework...ugh...but next week I HAVE to grin and bear it and get some things done...hopefully we'll have a day or two of rain so we can have an indoor day so I can get some things done.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
A friend sent this to me..As far as I can see, grief will never truly end.It may become softer overtime, more gentleand some days will feel sharp.But grief will last as long as Love does - ForeverIt's simply the way the absence of your loved onemanifests in your heart. A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
