The Weekend

Well, you will be glad to hear that I had a pretty good weekend. It started with taking the day off on Friday because as you know I was planning to leave with Patrick for the weekend. I instead got the kids off to school, Tia and I went to St. John's to mass, and then I took Tia to preschool. I thought I would come back home and take a nap, but my mind would not let me. I headed to Washington to get my nails done and a famous pedicure. I painted my nails black because as most of you know I like them to be different. Without even asking, she put two hearts on my ring finger which made me smile. It took forever, and I can still see Fletch sitting in his truck waiting for me like he always did. He sometimes went to see Evan, or some friends from work, the motorcycle store, or even Wal-Mart to buy stuff on our list. I then, after two hours, grabbed the worst sandwich and headed to the nursing home Carlye works at to visit with her and the occupational therapy girls. We had a fun talk, and just being there was a little depressing, but it really makes you appreciate life. Carlye's truck had to be jumped because she left something on. Imagine that! I came home to a wonderful surprise... Leah Robinson made me a memory book with all of the pictures of Fletch and I. If you have not seen it, you should. It made my day and the kids loved it, so if Leah is reading this, thanks from the bottom of my heart. Lacy thanks for helping get her some of the pictures. You two are angels. On Saturday, I did the gymnastics and soccer thing and slowly worked my way to Hannah's bachelorette party. We missed the massages which sucked, but we met them at Los Bravos and played some fun games. Needless to say, we then had a blast on the scavenger hunt, Mr. Sanders, and on the truck ride. It kept my mind on the good, not focusing on what I have lost, but what I have. I woke up Sunday very sick, but went to the movies with my sisters Bobbi and Nikki and my best friend Carlye and her two sister Ashlye and Lacy. They are all like my sisters and I love them so much! We went to Jasper to see Night in Rodanthe. I know that is probably spelled wrong, but it was a great movie. Definitely a love story similar to mine and Fletch's. I think we could have made a better one. LOL I am seriously thinking about writing a book, it would be about my life, but I know people would think it was fiction. We had a great time. I missed Megan and Denise and our Sunday trip to church, but I know they understand and Patrick really was smiling down that I had taken a bath and got out. It turned out to be a good weekend and today is Tuesday and so far so good. Thanks for all the prayers, I know they helped... Please continue to pray for all of those who have left this world. They are in a better place, I know, but it is still good to pray for them. Plus you will receive graces for doing it. Well I have to go, I have an 11 year old going on 21 throwing a 2 year old fit. LOL
Thanks for reading and God Bless,
Tara

Surely not lil miss tyra! I'm glad you had a great weekend & maybe I can come get Tyra another weekend. I think she was really wanting to go to the v-ball game but had gymnastics. & I totally understand the gymnastics world. Keep it up at being an awesome mom & putting up with all those 2 yr old fits. =] Praying for you!

Tara you are such an inspiration to me! You're an amazing mother and friend. Everyone I talk to can't say enough nice things about you! The memory book was the least I can do for you and your family, but it makes my day to know that you all loved it :) I kept praying that God & Patrick would help me put things (pictures, words, etc) where they needed to go! I'm so glad you got a chance to get out and go to the movies! I heard that movie was excellent! God Bless you all!

Everyone loves and cares about you so much! I am so glad we went to the movies; I had a great time. Thanks for taking a shower, I was getting a little worried. lol
You handled the movie much better than I thought you would. You are so strong baby sis! I agree that you & Patrick's love story would be better. We need to contact Hollywood!
