Soupy Saturday

I don't know about you all but here where I am it's raining again.. Sigh.. I am getting sick of the rain, I wanted to do a total house cleaning today but it's a little hard when I have 3 boys underfoot. I want to send them outside but that won't happen today lol..

So instead I am going to clean my basement lol what fun that will be...

I'm waiting for my October kit from Scraptastic Club so i can work on my DT projects, I haven't pulled any pictures yet because I don't know which kit I will be getting hehehe it's so exciting. I'm like a kid in a candy store... I hope it arrives on Monday so I can get to work on some projects.

October is a hard month for me it marks to sad anniversaries for me first the death of my mother she was 52 years old when she died it will be 8 years this year, I was 7 months pregnant when she died on our Thanksgiving ( Canadian) and it was a few years before I would celebrate that holliday again. Now that I have 3 little boys at home under the age of 10 I started celebrating for them because they asked me to.

The second anniversary and the hardest for me is of my beloved son Alexander he would have been 18 years old this year and on October 29 it will be 5 years since he took his own life at the age of 13. I do not tell people this wanting their sympathy I tell them to make them aware that this is happening to our children and we need to do something about it. So the next time you want to donate to a charity or something think about something like the kids help phone line or a suicide hotline, you never know you may save a life.

Well I am done with my ranting for now. I need to go do some cleaning and get some medication for this blasted cold I have ughh I feel I'm walking around in a fog yuck

Till Next time have a good onbe
