Been Missing . . .

I hate to admit it but it was kind of nice not blogging for a week.
Believe me. I love reading every one's blogs and even finding new blogs to read.

But this week I spent tons of time with Will at the park, taking walks and of course digging in the dirt. Because that's what moms of boys do.

I also have been reading lots of books during Will's nap times so, blog reading was pushed to the sideline.

Last Saturday Will and I spent the day with my sister and her family, which was really nice. We visited my mom's grave and put out some gorgeous flowers for her.

Then we decided to go down memory lane and went to the house we grew up in. The house looks so small! It was actually for sale and insanely over priced, but it was definitely cool to see it.

We then had a Mexican fiesta and some coronas to top off the day. It was nice to get the day over with but to also celebrate my mom's life.

This past Tuesday seemed to be the hardest for me only because that would have been the day we buried my mom.

People say it gets easier with time. Well. It doesn't. It is never easy. Every time I see a woman my age with her mom, I tear up. Every time I see a grandma with her grand babies, I tear up.

So people. It does not get easier with time. It just doesn't.

Yep. He licked the spoon and maybe had a couple of more spoonfuls. Because I am that kind of mom and so was my mom.

Your momma was clearly a great one. I'm sorry you've had a rough week. I was wondering where you've been. Taking a break sometimes is good, though... and how better to spend extra time than with that cute little chocolate face?! ;)

Sorry that you had a rough week. *Hugs*

I am glad you got to spend your week doing spending your time with your family and friends, it may not have been an easy week for you but at least you have some fun memories. Just remember that although your mother is not here in the flesh with you, her spirit is with you and your family watching over you and rejoicing in all that you accomplish, she is still with you and always will be! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and a great next week!

yay for a bloggy break and yay for licking the spoon!

licking the spoon = amazing! Celebrating life and seeing old house I am sure was tough and good all at the same time!

Blog breaks are always a good thing. So sorry that you are in so much pain :( I wish I was there to give you a hug :(

My sister in law's father got killed last week from an intoxicated driver. The guy lived and killed her dad and her dad's best friend. It was a hard, hard week. :(

I agree with Christy! I came to your page just to make sure my reader wasn't screwing up or something like that! I hope you guys are doing great!

You're right...time really doesn't make things easier. I agree with you. I think I miss my hubby's mom more now than when we first lost her. Hugs to you, my friend!
