I just wanna say

Standard

that I hate the Billy Ray Cyrus show Suprise Homecoming.

Because I get so mad, seeing how excited those families are to be reunited.

And I know that Anthony is never coming home, and the kids will never see their dad again.

What I wouldn’t give… to know he’s working oversees and would be home in year. To have the kids skype with him, to know their father. What I wouldn’t give to know he’d be home in several months or even years. To know the kids would have a chance to know him.

What I wouldn’t give, to have what those people have.

 

I hate that show.

Because my kids will never get the chance…

going offline agrees with me

I have barely been online in the last 4-5 days.

And I like it!

I’ve popped on quickly a couple times just to check my email and facebook feed and upload pictures.

I plan to keep it like this as much as possible over the rest of the summer.

Mostly offline.

Makes it easier to get things done and gives me tons more time to spend with the fam-damily.

On to other news…

Reni’s dance recital on Saturday was great. She had a hard time remembering some of her moves and so she watched her teacher almost the entire time, but it was stinking adorable anyway!

Charlize’s birthday party on Saturday evening was a success. It ended up being family only, and even half of our family couldn’t make it, but the kids had a blast, Charlize loved her gifts and new clothes, and the ice cream cake was amazingly good even though it half melted all over the table.

Yesterday, we spent half of the day at Cole Park on a picnic. The kids swam and played in the sand, Drew’s family helped a ton with the kids so he and I could relax a bit, and a good time was had by all.

My polymorphous light eruption rash isn’t as bad this time around, although it does seem more itchy. Less blistery, though. I’m considering a tanning bed over the winter to make next spring easier. I’ve read that using a tanning bed for just a few minutes a couple times a week, with sunscreen, can prevent the reaction in the spring. It’s kind of like graduated exposure. With continued low doses of UV exposure, the skin reacts less and less, similar to the way allergy shots work. It’s something to think about, anyway.

Rayce lost his second tooth yesterday, on Father’s Day. He lost his first tooth on Anthony’s birthday 🙂

That’s all for now, folks… pictures will be added to this post when I feel like adding them 🙂

My most favorite thing he ever said to me was “Then stop drinking the bottled water I get it for Bonnie and were on #5”. I miss listen to him talk about Bonnie and the children, he would always remind me that theres so much more to life. ~Blessed be~

I’ve known Anthony for a long time, I did not know his family but he always spoke fondly of them and I knew he loved them. Anthony and I had been friends since highschool and grew apart as college and life took over, we got back in touch through the internet after a few years, and were planning on getting together. I will miss him greatly and remember him as a beautiful person who always made me smile.

here are two poems:It takes a lifetime to find true love, as sweet as an angel from above,he loves you even when your down, but then you can never ever frown when he speaks your heart goes still, as you two go walking down a hill, his eyes glisten like the summer breeze, you even loved from the start because you two are connected by the heart…

As I lay here thinking what to write none of my thoughts are very bright. As I lay here another lonely night.
As I lay here I say goodbye. I’m laying here wishing he didn’t die. As i write time passes bye. I’m just here asking myself why?

Anthony was a really good friend to me, and I’ll never forget that.He will be remembered everyday, and his life will be celebrated through those he loved, and those who loved him.
He was a great man, who would give the shirt off his back to anyone who asked. I loved him very much, and he will be sorely missed….

Anthony, I still can’t believe you’re gone. Sometimes I feel absolutely fine, and then it hits me all over again and I break down. To know that I will never kiss you again… the grief is just unreal. I know you live on, in these beautiful children, and in the hearts of the mannnnny people who love you, but it doesn’t make it any easier to say goodbye. Know that you will always hold the biggest place in my heart. You will never be forgotten, you will never be replaced, and you will always be loved and missed more than words could ever express. I love you, my City Love, now, forever, and always.

I just tagged Anthony in a ton of pictures on facebook.
All the pictures of the kids from the last 8 months or so.
I plan to get to the rest at some point.
I want the page to be a fitting tribute.
I want anyone who knew him to be able to see the kids grow up.
I also found a few of his cousins on facebook, which is awesome.
I haven’t seen them since the funeral.
Wayyyy too long.
I’ve been trying to take pics of the kids more regularly.
Today, for instance.
The girls and I were out front just hanging out.
They were riding bikes and coloring with sidewalk chalk.
And I pulled the camera out and snapped a few quick pictures.
I spent way more time editing them than I did taking them.
But, I looooooove taking pictures and I loooooooooooove editing them, anyway.
I need to make sure I pull the camera out at least once a week for some informal shots of each of the kids.
It makes me happy inside :o)
Anyway.
Mom and I did a quick grocery shopping trip tonight.
Which turned out to be not so quick, of course.
And resulted in bedtime coming an hour late for the kiddos.
Which meant that I only got to see Drew for a teeny little while before he left for work.
Which stinks.
But tomorrow is our afternoon together, which helps.
We’re trying to have dinner together at least once during the week.
For now, it’s Wednesdays.
And any other day we can manage :o)
It’s getting easier to be all in the same place.
And harder to be in seperate places.
I can’t wait until we can move in together.
I know it will be quite a while still, that time is months away, at the very least, but I still can’t wait.
I love him, so much.
It feels good to be in love, to be happy, and to have so much hope for the future.
It’s been six months and our relationship feels better every day!
This is the way love is supposed to feel.
You’re supposed to fall more in love with the person all the time, not out of love a little at a time.
In other news…
it’s bedtime for Bonzo.
Past bedtime.
I’ve been so tired lately, and I’ve got a lot going on tomorrow.
Photoshoot, babysitting, laundry…
ya know, same old, same old.
:o)

It’s weird.
To think about Anthony.
To miss him so much that my heart still breaks, and the tears still fall when I see a picture.
It’s weird to think about him. To miss him. To want him to be here with us.
But, at the same time, to be in love with someone else.
To want to spend forever with him.
To imagine us growing old together.
It feels like I’m being pulled in two different directions.
It feels weird to miss Anthony and wish he were here… but to be in love with and dream about our future with Drew.
It feels weird to come to terms with the fact that Anthony was my past.
He’s gone, there is nothing I can do about it, and there is no bringing him back.
And Drew is my future.
I had a dream several months ago.
Drew and I had a baby.
But Anthony was there, and he helped me pick out a name.
I think sometimes about how, if Drew and I ever managed to have a baby, I can only imagine that I would wish Anthony was there to share that moment with me.
I know that when the kids grow up and graduate and get married and have kids of their own, I’m going to ache for Anthony.
Even though I have no doubts at this point that Drew will be there my side.
It’s such an odd feeling/thought.
Two very different places in my heart.
I can’t imagine my life without Drew anymore.
But I still wish Anthony could be here with us.
It’s confusing.
Having Drew doesn’t make me miss Anthony any less.
It doesn’t make me not wish he was still here.
Drew doesn’t fill the empty space in my heart that Anthony’s death left.
But Drew has created a new spot in my heart.
My heart has grown.
Broken. But stronger.
If that makes any sense.
It barely does to me.
