It was a maintenance day. Haircut, oil change, that kind of thing. I also bought some paint. We have plans to update the living room; paint, pull up the carpet to see if we have nice hard wood floors under, that kind of thing, in May. I just realized that its getting close! The paint I chose is pretty dark. I am still trying to decide if its TOO dark. I put some splashed up on each wall around the living room, but I think I am going to have to do a whole wall to see what I really think. I like the color, but will it be too much?
I've needed a haircut for awhile. I never schedule out for the next one, I just call and say "can you get me in tomorrow?" If not, sometimes I will try to plan it out, sometimes not. Luckily, my gal had an opening. And while I was there, I planned for a color next week. I had Miss I with me and she did really good just sitting, playing with something, watching. Of course she wanted a haircut too, but she really didn't need one. Not after the hair emergency we had a couple weeks ago. The one where I had to take her to which ever salon I could to repair the damage... Yeah, that kind of emergency. Nearly every kid tries to cut their own hair. I did. And the neighbors too!
It's Apple Blossom time! I wish the weather was nicer, it's been hard to get into it. I think it started with not being able to go to the opening-day festivities. Or maybe I'm just not in the mood this year? We have gone to lunch at the park a couple times and My Honey has treated me to ice cream after work a couple times.
We did do the kids parade last Saturday. Miss I wanted to be in it, Bubba wanted to watch. It worked out really well because Miss I's group was number 17 and we had some friends watching the parade near the end so we did both. We all walked in the parade then found our buddies and watched till the end. It was a lot of fun and a really nice day for it. This Saturday is another parade, but I work so I think either a friend or an Aunt is taking the kids.
I did happen to catch this gem though at the park after the parade:
And finally, another sweet soul passed away yesterday.
I posted this about her in November 2007:
"Last week I heard about a young couple who will soon be separated by death. The woman has cancer, she has 2 weeks to 2 months to live. I CANNOT IMAGINE. This couple has dealt with one type of sickness or another for at least the past 7 years, nearly their whole marriage. They are a beautiful example of standing by each other, seeing it through to the end. I know a few men (and women) who might have given up along the way. I am keeping them in my prayers."
We were blessed with two and a half years.
I still cannot imagine.
