Moving Forward

It went well yesterday. Better then I expected really. I appreciate all your comments and virtual hugs. It means more then I can say. 

I wanted to share the pictures of the niche because this is something I have never seen before.  They have glass fronts and the urn is placed inside but mementos can be added as desired. In one of the nearby niches, a young man had been killed in combat so it had his dog tags, pictures of him in his high school football uniform and other keepsakes. It was a beautiful tribute to his young life.

Niche location
 Peter Wong, the public administrator picked out everything. (I picked the cemetery) and I think he did a fine job. He is really good at his job and I do plan on writing the county to commend him on his assistance with all these arrangements. He even brought me flowers.
Peter gave me these

I cut these inside our courtyard
I was supposed to get together with Michael (bio brother) on Tuesday night. Well, I sat around waiting for him to call and never got a call or text. I do admit that my feelings were hurt but he was down here getting surgery on his hand/wrist so I tried to put myself in his shoes. I would have been stressing out at that point!

I ended up playing Wii for almost 2 hours with my friend Tony. We had a blast but I kept beating him at everything and he wasn't digging it LOL! He said "Katie, let's play something I can beat you at!" Classic!

After the service, I ended up at the bar for awhile. We had lunch and I had a few beers and a couple shots. I was pretty toasty when Dave came and got me and we went out to dinner. Needless to say I am belly aching this morning. I have not ate or drank like that in a long time. It used to be a regular occurrence. :-( I am a little tired today and plan on going home and getting jammies on right away. Until next time...
