Yard Sale date set for July 16th
Miss Tracie will travel down from Seattle with her roommate and Bestie Lindsay. It will be Heaven to see the Girls! =) Wow, we're getting close! And I must admit I saw denial on Pirate's face tonight when we were discussing the date. He wanted to push it back a week...but I told him that this is the only tine Tracie has off. I do need to change the days on our pull out clock...they don't quite match up to the real days left in July.
I've found that if I make a list of what I want to accomplish, I usually get everything done. My mornings are spent waiting for the first dose of painkillers to kick in, so I have time to write a list each day. The sense of accomplishment is wonderful--nothing like crossing something off of a list to make you feel proud of yourself.
I have scored a rare cancellation spot at my Tattoo Artist for Thursday! I'm very excited. Jerrett Spaeth is a true artist, and we consider his whole family part of our family. It's difficult to get an appointment with Jerrett, he's that good. You'll wait months, if you're lucky. I get 3 hours Thursday! Wahoo! I will be getting a cartoon zebra brushing his teeth to honor my Boone. I will also have his ashes incorporated into the ink. Boone loved zebras, and he loved his teeth brushed. There will be a banner underneath that says, "Forever with Mommy." This will help put closure on the hurt. I'm so happy that I will carry an actual part of him within me. I am just so blessed to have had him for 7 1/2 years. He truly was a Professor and Stud Muffin. Big Pal, Mister B, Brother, Little Man...the list goes on. He effected so many people in his short life.
