Welcome To Our Garden

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Today is my only day off this week. My shopping is now complete. I made a trip to the mall and a few other stores. It wasn't as crowded as I had expected. I still gotta hit the grocery for a turkey and all the stuff that goes with that. M's mom isn't doing a turkey dinner for Christmas so I thought I'd fix us one so we could have some leftovers for a few days. Gotta love turkey dinner leftovers. Yum!

Guess what Mr. Mailman brought us yesterday. It wasn't the Christmas return labels that we ordered a month ago but instead baby wipes. Ugh. A free sample of baby wipes. I guess it's from some of the online stuff I signed up for months ago. I just stuck it in an empty dresser drawer in the old nursery.

I guess I'm really losing it. I bought baby clothes today. Not for a friend but for us. Am I being hopeful or do I need help? It was a little fire truck onesie thing and it was only 2 bucks. I put it in the cart. I paid for it. I brought it home. I put it in the old nursery closet. I shut the door. I'm only just now crying about it. Ugh again.

I framed our 3 ultrasound pics today.


There was a police officer shot yesterday morning from M's department. I saw it on the news as I was walking out of the house for work. I had to wake M up to tell her. Not a good thing to have to wake up to. The officer was on foot patrol and happened upon 2 guys fighting behind a church. One of the a&&holes shot him. The officer fired back but they got away. His vest saved his life. Come on. You don't shoot people. And you most certainly don't shoot a cop. Needless to say there's a serious manhunt going on. M was at work from 8 am to 1130 pm last night and said she'd be late tonight. They'll find them. I have no doubt.

Tomorrow will be 4 weeks since the D&C. I wonder how long til AF shows up?

Our January 2 consultation appointment has been changed to January 9. Ugh. Another week longer.

The kitchen is calling my name. I think I'll bake some cookies. :o)

That is EXTREMELY scary. I certainly hope someone else catches them. If they will shoot a cop there's no telling what they will do.
I do hope and pray that M is safe through out the search.

Hoping AF gives you an early Christmas present :)

Cookies sound like the way to go. I don't think you are losing it; mixing hope and grief is a healthy thing.

I'm sorry that M is working so much, but I'm glad she's safe!

My shopping is NOT complete... that has to feel good to have yours done!

I think it is a good step you bought the baby item.

Merr said...

I think it's okay to buy baby stuff. You will have a baby one day!
I don't know how you do it, having a cop for a wife! I always said I never wanted to date a cop because it's too scary for me.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I am sorry for your loss.

I'm so very, very sorry for you losses. You're so right - they do change you. I will never forget the little souls who have tiptoed in and out of my life.

I'm glad my Mom's cookies helped a little bit - I'll have to tell her how many people have enjoyed the recipe! Because yeah, sometimes a cookie is just about the only thing that helps ;)
