Saying Good-bye is never easy...

Perry Emuel Myers 8/27/1948 - 8/8/2011

Perry Emuel Myers Jr. 62, was reunited with his parents and his son on Aug. 8, 2011. Born Aug. 27, 1948 to Perry Emuel Myers and Shirley Jean Rolfe Myers. Perry was a wild spirit who always enjoyed life. Some of his favorite things were spending time with his daughter and his many friends. He loved to sing Elvis songs and ride harleys in the wind. He is survived by his daughter Christy Jo Myers, three brothers Roger, Russell, Rodney and two sisters Debbie and Loralee and many others who loved him dearly.

This is my Uncle Perry - and we will be saying good-bye to him tomorrow 8/27/11. It is so un real that he is gone- I will miss him calling and chatting my "young" self up on the phone. My dads brothers all remind me of my dad in many ways - but my Uncle Perry reminded me of my grandpa Tug more than any of the brothers, in some ways it was as if I was looking at and listening to my grandpa when he called or we would see him. Perry lived his life the way that he wanted to and he died a happy man surrounded by his family. I will miss him more than I can express - but know that he is happy to be with his parents and his son on the other side. May you forever rest in peace Uncle Perry - and may you party hard up above.
Love you forever!

The Big 37- Happy Birthday to me!!

So it's my birthday tomorrow - the BIG 37- the people that I work with had a big lunch for me today - Im sure that my desk will be decorateed tomorrow and I guess that it's ok- it's always a good time where I work - and what better than 2 whole days of celebrations?

I have been thinking alot about where I am in life - and where I have been - and I will have to say that these days by far out measure the ones in the past. I love where I am in my life.. I love my job(yes, it's true) I have a great family that I am lucky enough to see all the time, I have great friends of whom I am fortunate to call them my friends, I learn from them and strive to be more like them.

I am most fortunate to have the love of my life... my son, Kaleb. I may be getting older but he makes me feel younger everyday - he makes me laugh every single day. I love watching him grow and do new things. He is amazing and I cant wait to see him grow older - these things are what I measure my success and my happiness by.

I would not go back in time to do anything over - I may not enjoy my birthdays but I dont want to go back to before I was 37- I just really dont think Im ready to be soo close to 40- but we will save that for another year...

Happy Birthday to me!!!

Love this girl...

This is my friend Shaua's daughter McKinnley. I love this girl.. she is ALL girl(most of the time) we have taken to each other like milk and cookies!!
The other night Shauna and I were talking and the kids were all running around, dogs barking, kids screaming.. it was a mad house to say the least.. Shauna looks over at me and says.. Someone take me away - Im cheap, free to a good home. Then I said to her - why not just get a HUGE box and put all the kids in it - write on the front "Free to a good home" (like you see when people are trying to give away animals in front of stores).. I said and if we dont have any takers - we can change the sign to say Free to ANY home... man we laughed so hard over that - in fact we still do...
Anywho... the other night we were at Shauna's house and Kinney said to me.. I have a good idea Monica.. I said - you do? She said yes.. I think that we should put you in a box and put "Free wife - to a good home" - oh man.. she thought she was a genious- and all I could do was laugh my keister off at the thought...
Then I very nicely explained to her that I don't want to be married- I rather like my life as it is... she was so sad that I didn't immediatley take to her idea.
Man I love this little girl- the things that we think of and the conversations we have.. they arent ones I can have with my son that's for sure.

Feather Extensions???

So I have been seeing many, many girls and women with feathers in their hair - kinda reminds me of when I was a little girl and feather hair clips were all the rage... but I have been thinking more and more about them...

I think that they are unique looking.. and the vast aray of different colors amazes me...and honestly I have been thinking of getting a teal one.. or maybe a pink one.. or white.. not sure of the color yet.. but I am considering it... maybe...
