I am getting better I think.

I don't think of my dad constantly. I am not mad at him anymore. It still sucks, don't get me wrong but I am getting on with my life such that it is. I have learned one thing, I am going to get out and do stuff. I am planning a trip for me and the Canadian since I am not going on my Jekyll Island trip this year. Dont know where or when yet, but I am thinking spring (so it wont be too hot) and someplace within driving distance.

My mom however, seems to be getting worse. She was with him for over 50 years and the last 10 years they pretty were together 24/7. She is very sad. I am trying to get stuffgirl to go stay the night over there soon but she is in mid break up with her boyfriend and all that drama.

Mom wants to go to the cemetery and leave some flowers on dads grave but was warned by people at her church that cemeteries are the new Mall as far as robberies go, so she is afraid she will get robbed! Have you ever? Robbing people in a cemetery is a new low! I will be going up to visit in 2 weeks so I will take her then if she cant get there before.

The picture is stuffgirl with Dad's licence plate, Kornfan was not there that day. I wanted a picture of the plate because its gone now, we had to turn it in to get the insurance off their other car. But its sad, someone else is Papax2 now. The bear is the Bubba, its a talking bear that was popular several years ago, Dad loved that stupid talking bear! Its freaky,the battery in Bubba died when dad did.

Anyway, its FRIDAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Yeah! wooohoooo!!

I love Friday too!

so sorry about your dad. That's sad that your mom misses him so, but I guess a testament to the marriage and realtionship, maybe?

My daughter has Bubba too!!

I know your mom does have to miss him so much! I can't imagine. But to rob people in their resting place is beyond understandable...
2 things to never mess with ~ church and cemeteries!

Sometimes you shouldn't listen to other people...your poor mom. I wonder how true that is. Is there a cemetary groundskeeper you could call?

I have heard that losing your spouse is one of the most stressful kinds of death. After my grandfather died, my grandmother looked so lost. She still does some airheaded things she didn't use to. I remember when she use to be so "with it".

Glad you are feeling better. Don't let it catch you by surprised if you still have your moments now and then. Loss is very difficult.

I am thinking of you.

What a sweet picture! The license plate and bear say a lot about the type of person your dad was.

I have heard of people being robbed in cemetaries in New Orleans, but I didn't realize it was happening anywhere else.

That spring vacation sounds like a really nice idea.

What a great picture!

I've never heard of people being robbed in cememtaries. That's a new low. How scary.

I'll be praying for your mom. I know it must be especially hard on her.
