The F-what?

As suggested, I will keep on with my life as if the FS is never even going to happen for us. The FS? The F-what? Never heard of it.

Well then.

I have decided that since nothing different is going to happen in my life and that my husband is not practicing speaking a strange language (yes, I said it, strange) and since we did not have to give 1,000 vials of blood between us, and there is not palpable tension regarding the future, and our life will surely not be uprooted...

I will continue life as usual. 
I will keep adding to my:

La-Z-Boy recliners in all 38 fabric choices collection

Lead garden statuary collection

Weight lifting and dumbbells collection

Cinder block collection

Anvil collection

Steel I-beam collection

Civil War artillary collection

Waters of the world collection

I feel better already. I think that's a good idea, don't you? It's good to have a Plan A...

OMG you are funny. Seriously funny. Some of my collections sitting in storage: Cast iron cookware lots of it, Rocks one of the rocks is a huge chuck of petrified wood that must weigh 300 pounds. Tombstones. Just don't ask, accept that I have 12 or 13 smallish tombstones in storage and our original movers think I am a wack job.

I was going to leave a comment on your previous post and just realized that I didn't.

This is just a thought. I have no idea if it will work but quite a few people read your blog. I am sure many of them would love to see your art. I certainly do. Since I've never it, I can't promise that I'd love it but you never know.

Why not make some pieces and put images of them here. Some of the people reading your blog may be interested in buying. I know for example I am looking for three gifts right now and everything I see out there is lame.

Even if your readers don't directly buy your things, they may tell their friends and you get people talking about your things. No guarantee it will work but it just might.

As far as Plan A vs. Plans B, C, D... My had husband passed the FSOT/FSWE several times before finally going all the way through the process. We had kinda mentioned it to people the first couple of times and then it didn't pan out. We didn't like that feeling and having to explain, so the last couple of times we went in intentional denial it was happening instead. We just moved on with our lives and tried to forget he had an active candidacy going through the process. It was soooooo difficult because we wanted it so bad but I guess that's how we dealt with the waiting and not knowing. When he finally did get the call, we were a little stunned but in a very good way. That and we could finally talk about it to friends and family again.

Shannon- tombstones??? No way.

ITMTG- love your collections. you are too funny!

Sigh! Yes tombstones. It is a long story. When we moved into our new house in 1999 there was lots of construction still going on and lots of wooded areas waiting for construction to begin. We would go hiking in the evenings after worked. We came across an area where something had been bulldozed. After poking around we figured out it had been a veterinary clinic and it had had a graveyard for animals that had been bulldozed too. most of the headstones had been destroyed or had concrete dumped all over them but a few were still in pretty good shape. After I sobbed my butt off we spent the rest of the day going back and forth with a wheelbarrow dragging them back to my house. If I ever wondered if my husband loved me this answered that question. They all date from the 30's. Most of the year they were tucked in among my flowers in the garden but at Halloween they turned my front yard into Pet Semetary.
