Birthday Girl

Today is my Nana's 89th birthday! :) Amazing. I was thinking today what it must feel like to be 89 and to have experienced and seen so many things change in 89 years! That's a long time! We are praying that she makes it to 90. We will definitely be having a big birthday bash for her next year. God willing. We went down to her house today for a birthday lunch. She was too cute with her balloon and birthday girl crown. Old people are so cute :)

We also went to pick up Nole's ashes at the emergency vet today :( He's in a little black urn (sp?) and there's a spot up on top where we can put a picture. They also gave us a paw print and a clipping of his hair :( It's all so surreal that he's in an urn now and not alive and here with us. So sad. We haven't decided yet if we want to bury him at my parents or keep in with us in the urn. I just wouldn't like the idea of my parents moving someday and Nole being left behind. So I don't know what we are going to do yet. We have till the spring anyways when the ground thaws.

Got some good news this week! A bunch of my tests came back negative, which is a HUGE relief. I still have the colonoscopy to get through next Friday, and I have high anxiety about it! But I know I just have to do it. It's not the prep or the actual procedure that scares me, it's the anesthesia! I've never had an IV one before so for some reason I'm really scared of it. So once that is over we can maybe start thinking about getting back on board the baby train. And figuring out what our next move is going to be.

I found out this week that I'm changing classrooms at work :( Kind of bummed about it because I love my kids and the people I work with. But another teacher is leaving and they need me to fill that spot. It'll be fine once I get adjusted, but I'm just kind of sad about it for now.

Today on our drive down to my Nana's, I saw a sign that caught my attention. It was a McDonald's billboard that had an iced coffee on it and it said "If Caramel and Ice had a kid." And I thought to myself (with sarcasm), "What if Caramel and Ice are infertile, what then Mickey D's??!!" :) I'm officially losing it I think...

And then on our way home we drove by a beautiful old church and the sign out front read. " Every child is a blessing from God." And I thought to myself (with an ache in my heart), "Heck yeah, it is."

I'm glad you got Nole's urn back. I myself would find a special place for Nole and keep him there. My sister did that with her two cats.

Great news on the negative test results. As far as the IV, it will be over before you know it. Ask them to cover it up for you with tape or gauze. Isn't anxiety a witch? :)

Thank you for your comments. They have meant so much to me. Hugs!
