Small Victories

Me and Hayden's mom met with someone at the cemetery today. They needed to know what was going on. They needed to know that it was a lot more than just a simple garden decoration that was taken.

I'm happy to say they were a lot more receptive than I expected them to be. They're going to make sure security checks the section at night, actually getting out of the car not just driving by. They're also going to plant a bush with lots of thorns and stickers where people get in and use as a cut through.

I'm happy and hope it makes a difference.

I've been having some pain on the right side. I didn't know what it was so I went and got it checked. Guess who has gall stones? Add that to the list of organs I don't really need that has caused me issues. Surgery is scheduled for 7/31. I'll be glad to see it go. I'm hoping it'll leave me with a clear head when we're ready to try for another baby.

We moved AJ to a "big boy bed". He was so excited. It took him a little while to fall asleep but I think he's going to do really well.

We had our first meeting for our F2F group on Wednesday. It went really well and I can't wait till the next one.

I love you sweet boy. Forever and a day.

Third time's the charm

I went to visit Ryan yesterday and I noticed his ladybug was missing again. I figured it was another child who was playing with it and I would find it in a different part of the section like we did last time.

I looked everywhere. Nothing. Then the anger set in. I called Nick and told him. I sent a text to Hayden & Ethan's moms. Hayden's mom had 3 things go missing a few weeks before. The longer I sat there in my car the harder I cried. I haven't sobbed like that since last year.

Last time the ladybug was stolen (and no I don't know that's what happened for sure but the darn thing was staked into the ground!) I had to go on-line to find another. It was only sold in a 6-pack. I didn't think I'd need to dip into that stash so quickly.

So today we went and brought another ladybug and this time we made sure it wasn't going anywhere. I used rubber cement and tape. It's attached to the flagpole. I put his name on the outside and the underside. So help me if this one goes missing.

Tomorrow I'm going to call the cemetery and I'm going to set up a meeting for later this week. I know there isn't much they can do but it's obvious that there is at least one person hanging out in the bushes of the section -- you can tell by the beer cans and lottery tickets. They need to know that this is a problem and it needs to be addressed.

Hopefully this will take care if it -- it's so hard to go there and see something that means so much to you gone.

I love you sweet boy. Forever and a day.
