The weekend was full of it... completely & fully.
Friday was the slowest day for us so I made sure to just relax. I dont even think I knit, which is a crazy thing for me....
But I just parked myself in front of the TV & ended up watching a movie I'd never thought I'd watch... & REALLY ended up loving.
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
Seriously... it was REALLY good.
Saturday, I knew it was going to be a tough day.
It was Ernie's funeral & I just knew Ricky's heart was going to be torn apart all over again.
It's always so hard to say those final goodbyes.
The service for Ernie was so hard... to see all his kid lined up in that front row, clinging to one another. It tore me apart. & Ernie's oldest daughter went up to speak about her dad & she mentioned the friendship that Ernie & Ricky had & that just pushed Ricky over the edge.
So sad to see all of these kids loose their father.
& poor Ricky.... as we were walking out, he said, "There's no one I can talk about the memories of my childhood with that remembers themselves & can laugh & remind me of things that happened". For Ricky, it really is like loosing another brother. Just devastating.
After the funeral, Ricky & I went to get something to eat & we just sat & talked & talked & talked about memories of Ernie. I think it was great for Ricky to talk about some of these things... & I just loved hearing about their antics of growing up together.
It wasn't like it was a tough enough or heavy enough day.... but we got home & I walked in the door & saw this....
I about freaked out. I ran around the house screaming for Bruno because I knew it had to be his blood... & couldnt find him....
but then saw him standing in a corner with a pile of blood under him &his face covered in blood.
I picked him up & took off running down the drive way screaming for Ricky to help.
I had no idea where Bruno was bleeding - his face, his leg, anywhere on his body??? ....
This is why I love our security cameras.... we looked back & what happened was Bruno walked on top of the air vent in the floor & I guess it caught just right on his finger nail that it pulled the vent up.... & low & behind, he kept walking around, as blind as he is - & fell in the hole in the ground, cutting his leg on the edge of the vent.
His face was covered in blood where he was licking it to try & get it to stop. & luckily, it had only happened about a half hour before we got home.
We washed it & was able to get the bleeding to stop - we thought we were going to have to go to the vet's office on an ER run... but it did stop & we were able to clean it up & Ricky bandaged it up. It's already looking better ... but geez... our poor little boy. He's just going through the ringer lately.

Sunday, I headed to MSM & then headed out to meet my Joysters.
We always take the meet up after we finish a study & just hang out. We had plans on eating & then going to paint pottery... except we ate & then got to the pottery place to find out there wasn't one open seat in the entire place. WHAT!?!?!?.... apparently they were having some sort of birthday party group in there.... so we just went to the coffee shop next door & was able to just chat & enjoy some yummy coffee & just enjoy the little break in the day.
My day was just made though because one of my past brides, who Chasity & I have stayed in touch with, we've been praying for her to join us for the longest time... well, she's finally gave in & is starting to join us. I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! I just love her so much. & she has a new little baby - & our group is ALL ABOUT THE BABIES!!!!!
I had enough time to go home & take Ricky some dinner I picked up for him & sit & watch an episode of Stranger Things 2 (Ricky is behind & I'm enjoying watching it again with him)...
& then it was time to head out for our girls bible study....
We are nearing the end of the study they are doing. I'm praying the girls have gotten something out of it. I have loved watching them just continue to show up every week - that's a blessing in of itself.
Next week with them is going to be so fun - we are doing a "Friendsgiving" & they are inviting BOYS!!! You should hear all the squealing. The amazing lady who opens her home for this & leads the discussion every week - she's just incredible. I'm so amazed she's going to let all these girls (there's about 20-25 of them) each invite a boy over - it's going to be full of moments that I'm going to go AHHHH about - I guarantee. It's really cool though because the Student Connection Pastor is going to come & give a devotion & just sort of be the balance for the boys.... which is nice. & plus, every middle school girl has the biggest crush on him so they'll be all dreamy eyed listening to him. haha... You should have heard the GROANS when they were told he'll be bringing his girlfriend. OHHH... the infatuations of a middle school girl. It's going to be super fun though & a great way to end our bible study for the holidays.
So got home around 8:30 & was pretty much beat. ... & barely even made it through The Walking Dead...
whew... what a weekend.
How was yours?
Tell me something good about it!
