Your Mom...

Somethin' for the Kiddies....

Sunday, August 03, 2008


My Godmother passed away this past week, after fighting a brain tumor for the past year. Tomorrow I will be spending the day at her funeral.
Obviously, I have been thinking about her off and on over the past few days.
Some memories...
*A new MSU sweatshirt from her for Christmas every year.
*Receiving cards from her for every holiday over the years and always liking her handwriting. I can envision it now.
*Laying in front of the fireplace with her as a little kid and cracking peanuts from the shell.
*She being the only one who could really give my dad a run for his money when playing Trivial Pursuit.
*Being happy to reconnect with her as an adult during my wedding showers, etc.
*Realizing we actually have a lot in common (camping, travel, etc.).
*Being lucky enough to visit with her every year and her getting to meet Lucy and Tommy.
Alice will be missed...

Oh, Sarah, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry she battled a tumor and I'm sorry she was taken from all of you. Hold your memories of her close.

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
