Little Tikes Digital Camera

I have gone through three digital cameras in the past five years. Mostly because Kennedy and Christopher-Robin are always playing with it. My last one was killed when Christopher-Robin dropped it and the lense was half in and half out. My loving hubby replaced it. I have been on the search for a good digital camera for them, I have tried the cheap ones but they want a good one like Mommy's.

Guess what Thats it Mommy blog is having a Little Tikes Digital Camera Giveaway. It would be perfect for them. If I won, I would put it away for Christmas.

My Pillow Pets

Ever since Christopher-Robin saw the commerical on television for Pillow Pets, he has been begging me for one. I looked at the website and I think that the snuggly puppy one would be perfect for him since he wants a dog so bad. Fun Saving Money is giving one away so I have entered and I hope I can win him one...

Little Tikes Giveaway

I have been on a major house cleaning streak. Throwing lots of stuff away...Tragically one of the things that had to get tossed was Kennedy's kitchen set. It wasn't the best made and had seen some serious play. Now that we are in a larger house and she has her own room, I have been searching for something to replace her kitchen. Fun Saving Money blog is have a little tikes giveaway for Neighborhood Market. I think she would love it..

Contest @ Hallee the Homemaker

I have entered yet another blog contest...I really want to win this one.. It's @ Hallee the homemaker. I added the button to the side of the blog because my computer will not let me link it for some reason. I have no luck winning blog contest, I enter a bunch and have only ever won one. Maybe this will be me time, who knows.

I wanted one of these mixers forever. I was trying to get my grandma's when I was visiting her two weeks ago in NJ but she wasn't giving it up even though she never uses it.

New Years....

It's a New Year. Another has passed already. I can't believe that it is 2010. 10 years ago, Steve and I spent our first New Years eve together and everything seemed so promising. We didn't do anything special. Just hung out with my mom and dad. Martin was all excited about staying up until midnight. He was six then. People thought the world was going to end and it didn't...LOL.

Forward ten years...

I really wanted this year to start off great and not be negative, leave old issues behind...I was finally getting over the grief of losing my dad in May. I knew once I got past his birthday December 23rd and Christmas, I was going to be okay. Life had other plans. My Pop-Pop (dad's father) who means the world to me since he is the only grandfather I ever knew. We never called him grandpa, just Pop-Pop. Pops for short. Pops got sick two weeks before Christmas. I didn't want to be a negative person but I knew it wasn't looking good. He had not been the same since losing my dad. He starting having troubles with his heart, just like my dad, and then he went down hill fast. I spoke to him at the hospital on Christmas. I knew the end was near, he didn't sound good. A man who jogged three miles a day, took no prescription pills, only vitamins and eat so healthy, was fading. Wednesday, Dec. 29, he was scheduled for heart surgery. I wanted to call him but I couldn't stand hearing him so weak. I know that morning he was gone. He didn't make it through surgery. I was at work and read my cousins status on facebook, that pops was gone.

My heart is breaking. I know that my dad is no longer alone and pops is no longer suffer. He has joined his baby, my dad. But it doesn't make the pain of it all hurt any less. I can't go back to NJ to say goodbye to him but there really isn't anything to say goodbye too, he has already been cremated.

In seven months, I have lost my dad and now my grandfather, two of the most important men in my life, next to my husband Steve. I have been numbing the pain with my aniexty medication but I know that is not healthy and I need to find a way to deal with all this grief.

Pops and Dad where ever your are, please know I love and miss you so much. I hope that you are in peace.
