I did it....

I finally went down and ordered Ed's headstone.....it was weird to see his name...let alone my name and birthdate...but it's a beautiful stone, it's jet black with "Compher" in the middle with a wedding ring under it with the date we were married in the ring...and then our names to each side, it's such a slap of reality to see your name, birthdate and a spot for your death date...But it will take about 6 weeks for it to come in...and I can't wait to get it out there in the cemetary...I also order me and the girls the "thumbies" charms...which has Ed's thumb print..I had to go to the funeral home to order them...it was weird to see the folder that held all the paper work , that i had to fill out when we planned the funeral...but they're so awesome over there...But I did it...it's beautiful..... I also took Sommer to get her hair cut....she wanted it super short...I didn't want it short at all.....but it's her hair, it's almost summer so we compromised with a shoulder length.... she loves it.....the lady that cut it was so sweet, but at one point she started asking sommer what her dad is going to think of her getting all her hair cut off...and before sommer could say anything the lady , was like I hope your dad's not going to be mad at me, is he going to kick my butt......going on and on about what her dad's going to do...finally sommer just looked over at me....and I told the lady that he had passed away...she felt awful! but I told her not to worry about...I mean how is she supposed to know....This was sommers first time getting her hair cut at a salon, she had alot of fun...and she cracked me up....on the way out , she asked the lady if she could keep the comb??? I don't know where that came from...weirdo...hee,hee....

I feel like I haven't scrapped in a month....soo...looking forward to a weekend of croppin' at Miki's with the gang.......
