We just got back from Storyland in Glen,NH. It was a great trip, the kids had a blast and they didn't seem to mind to 3 and 1/2 hr car trip. We stayed at a hotel with an indoor waterpark, so much fun! We had one "incident", when Hannah took off to the next ride without us. She was only out of our sight for about 3 minutes, but I was in PANIC mode for the entire time. I wasn't sure if I was going to get angry with her or cry when we found her...RRRRR! Needless to say, she had to skip that ride while the other kids went on. (Time out in the middle of a theme park is not that easy!) The rest of the trip was just amazing, we had lots of family time, lots of yummy food and some wonderful memories! Pictures are coming soon!
I am back! I have missed blogging. We are all doing pretty well. One day at a time is about all I can handle right now, but I am getting through. We have 2 vacations coming up in the next few weeks and I am really looking forward to them. Hannah graduates from Preschool this week and our good friends are getting married. We are certainly keeping busy. I hope to be back into my daily blogging ways soon.
I need to talk, I need to share what I have been going through this past week. Right now I am so thankful to have this blog as an outlet.
Last Monday my dad died. His death was a SHOCK to say the least. It was devastating and the most traumatic experience I have ever had to deal with. My dad and I were very close,we spent alot of time together each day, my children ADORED him. My 2 younger sisters still live at home, they are 20 and 14. My stepmother had been married to him for 24 years.
Life seemed great for all of us until Monday morning.
We got a call that my dad was not at work, he was not answering his cell phone and it had been 2 hours since he left for work. I must have called his cell about 25 times in a one hour period. No Answer. To make a very painful story short, my uncle came to the house at 8:00AM on Monday morning and told us that my dad had jumped off of a bridge. He took his own life. He was gone. No warning, no signs,no good-byes. Complete SHOCK. None of this will ever make sense, it will never be better and I am certain I will NEVER get over this completely. I will talk more later, right now I am just asking for your prayers.
We lost my dad this past Monday. Today we laid him to rest. He was 53 years old. His death was senseless. His death was sudden and a complete shock. He left behind a wife, 3 daughters and 2 grandchildren. This is all I can share for now. Please keep my family in your prayers.
