still standing

   Well the girls did not take the news of their grandfathers passing very well. Both of the girls had a cry and I think that more tears are on the way. I know that only time will heal their heart. I also know in time that they WILL be able to look back and laugh about the fun times that they did have with their grandfather.

I on the other hand have not cried yet. I have been strong for the children, but I know that when I least expect it, it will hit me. I am just glad that I have Rusty to lean on.

Last night the girls picked out their Halloween costumes and they are going as wonder women and bat women. So I will be sending Ryan as super man. I think they will look so good.

I would like to thank everyone who left me a comment and a prayer! It was so nice to read all of the comments.

I went and looked for tile today. I know what I want to do in the bathroom, but as of yet I have not found the tile that I want.

So some of you may remember that I was recycling glass and then putting the money towards the girls trip---next year--. Anyway, a bar contacted me and asked me to come by and pick up their bottles every Monday. I was so happy! That will really help raise the money that they need.

I am going to go bum a smoke off one of my friends.

I'm sorry your girls are upset about your dad's death. Tears are good things though for healing when tears come.

the man that lives next door to us does the same thing you do. He goes around to different bars and picks up the recyclable bottles. He works nights doing this.

I know you are in the California area somewhere; I'm in the Laguna Beach area; used to live in Montana until three months ago.

wow, I can't imagine thinking of Halloween already; glad your girls picked out their costumes already :)

I lost my mom/best friend in 2002 & my youngest sone in 2004...I still have not cried, I have not actually accepted their deaths. I know I need to break down & grieve, but i can't, not yet.
Please know I am here for you, should you feel the need to talk with someone, I'm only a mouse click away.
Praying for you & family.
I came via Zoe's journal.
Hugs,
Sugar
