I just wanted to start by saying thank you to all of you who have stopped by and shared such kind words regarding Dexter. It really means alot. Well this has been a very strange few days starting off with Dexter's passing. Friday was so hard. Saturday we were a little better plus we were went to my mom and dad's house Saturday night to celebrate Mother's day with everyone so it was good to get out of the house. Mom was cooking my favorite dinner Yankee Pot Roast. Mmmm a little comfort food for me. We also all chipped in and got my mom an iPod and a bunch of accessories for it since she loved my son David's so much. My mom got me a nice garden stone to put on Dexter's grave. It's has the poem If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again Then my sister Lisa surprised me with my Mother's Day gift. A 7 week old kitten named "Ellie Mae" she is so adorable. Her name Ellie means sweet and kind. I know no cat can replace Dexter but she sure does put a big smile on everyone's face. Here are a couple of pictures of her.

Another happy event that happened on Saturday was my husband owns his own business called "The Comic Book Depot" well Saturday was also a national event called FREE Comic Book Day. We give away comic books in hopes to get people interested in reading and buying comic books. The local news called up his store and said they were coming down to do a piece on him so my husband Alan and my son David with many of my husbands customers were on the 5:00pm news. What great publicity for the store. It was so cool.

Sunday was quiet. I ran to the mall and picked up a little gift for my sister for mother's day a new perfume called Issey Miyake. We also ran to Lowes to pick up some pool wash sand for when we have to do the leveling for the pool we got for the yard. Alan was also supposed to cook me dinner but I felt bad my sister Lisa was sitting home alone on mother's day so I suggested that we go over and drop off her gift and pick up Italian food while we were there. The kids enjoyed getting together playing and enjoying new kitten.

Today so far has been busy. I had an appointment with Kaylee's Pre-K teacher. She just was going over how Kaylee is doing and recommended that she take a speech class next year. After I got out of there it was time for Brittany to go to school and then Kaylee and I ran out to Wal-mart to get some stuff for the kitten. Afterwards, I got a call from Alan saying that the roofer called and will be coming this Friday to put on the new roof. So I had to run to the bank and drop off a doposit. Wednesday they will be bringing the dumpster and supplies. Hopefully it will all look nice. Maybe I'll do a before and after shot if I remember. Well now I am off to start my roast chicken for dinner.

Talk to you soon! Hugs!
