Who knew that I would experience the BEST day & worst day of my life, all this year, & both on Friday the 13th. Friday the 13th of March, Nic was diagnosed with cancer. Friday the 13th of November Nic was declared cancer free. Such emotions, such gratitude, such love. This year has certainly been a learning experience for all, not to mention an emotional roller coaster. I think I will finally be able to sleep at night with out the aid of sleeping pills. Seeing Nic's dirty clothes on the floor will, will only make me smile, knowing that he is still here with me. I have developed a deep appreciation for everyone who has helped me out, let me vent, and just put up with my crappy attitude. I know my poor friend Kim has been put through the ringer by me, and yet, she is still my friend. For that, I thank God. I really do appreciate all of you, I know many of you made sacrifices so that you could help out me & my family. I don't know that you will truly understand just how much we appreciate it all. C A N C E R F R E E words can not describe the elation I am feeling.
So I bought this cute sandwich holder from the dollar store & Cassidy was so happy to have it that she took her lunch to school the next day. I have since wondered about it. & then it magically appeared, a few weeks later. It had been left in her friends car. I had to open it & look, kinda like the train wreck. & Holy Moly, or should I say Holdy Moldy.
No point in cleaning it out, I just tossed it. I got my $1.00 worth of use out of it.
So I remembered to take my camera to 2 out of 3 costume parties Nic & I went to this year. I love that everyone dresses up and is so creative. I am especially glad to have talked Nic into dressing up with me!
Trent decided to be kinda funny & toilet the little baby trees we have. At first Nic thought maybe a neighbor had done it... Really, a neighbor came &toilet papered the trees in our back yard--- Hmm sounds fishy to me. & how about the 2 empty toilet paper rolls in the bathroom garbage. Something doesn't match up. As an avid toilet paper'er back in my youth, I knew all to well who it was. TRENT. But I must say, this day & age, you might get sued for it, so kudos on toilet papering someone who he knew wouldn't really get upset.
I noticed Stockton's face seemed a little off... Upon a closer look, I found out that he had shaved off part of each of his eyebrows.
When I asked him about it, he got nervous, & I thought Maybe Trent had done it-but only because Trent had buzzed his eyebrow a few weeks earlier.
Stockton finally admitted to using daddy's razor to shave his eyebrow. (that's when you get hit with a dose of reality-- good thing that's all he did- Mother & Father of the year, yup, I've had quite a few nominations, but I think this is Nic's first one this year. Ü).
When I asked him why he did it, he said " I want to be like daddy and not have any eyebrows"
uhhhh, errr, ummmm okay.
How do you respond to that? I gave him a hug & thanked him for telling me the truth & told him not to do it again, because now it was a race to see who's grew back faster.
