My Last Day Alone. They're Almost Home

Mike & Hannah are driving home from Pittsburgh today. They left around 9am. They might be home for dinner. I know they had a great time, and I think it also did me a world of good to get some much-needed time to myself.

I've been having fun with my crafts and scrapbook projects, and Ive also dome some shopping for myself and gotten some cleaning & organizing done around the house. Plus Ive spent some quailty time with Esther, outside of church. I offered to watch her 2 boys on Monday so that she could have some kid-free time... and as a thank-you, she brought us burritos from Taco Bell for lunch, and a dozen pink tulips for me! It was such a nice surprise! The flowers smell so good, and they look very pretty on my nice clean kitchen counter.

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of my first miscarriage. I was pretty emotional last night. It is still very painful and sad, but I think that I am beginning to find some closure, and peace. This week, I have been working on a special scrapbook in memory of my three angel babies.

I think now Im going to sit outside on the swing in the front yard, eat something for lunch, and read a book. Spring is a beautiful time of year, I've got to enjoy it while I can.

Hey Nicole!

I think that scrapbooking is an amazing way to remember your angels. I've always wanted to get into scrapbooking, but never really found the time to.. I always seem to be very busy and I have a hard time with the whole patience issue.

That was so nice of your friend to bring you flowers, and mmmm burritos. I hope that you are having a great day!
