Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare

It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
-Rose Kennedy

I've been tagged!

I have been tagged by CLC, I have never been tagged before either so we'll see if I can get it right! First off though, I have to say I agree with her # 3 answer and her #6, both of which would be on my list too! Here it goes!

The rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged you (I did above).
2) Post the rules.
3) Share six non-important things / habits / quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least three people.
5) Make sure the people you tagged KNOW you tagged them by commenting what you did.

Six non-important things about me:

1. I read way too much. When reading a book I do not respond to others around me, I ignore them completely and act as though they don't exist.

2. I eat chocolate like it is going out of style - Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses are my new fav!

3. I watch too much t.v. - I have two favorite shows, one is LOST and the other is ELI STONE. I actually record shows while I am at groups, work or sleeping so I have something to watch when there is nothing good on.

4. I don't like to wear bras or shoes (socks yes, shoes no!) That is pretty self explanitory! That's not important, is it? TMI? Sorry!

5. I believe whole heartedly in RETAIL THERAPY, I spend money with no remorse! It hasn't actually helped in this situation (stillborn mom) but it has helped in the past. I have spent a lot of money since December but it is towards advocacy groups, memorial stuff, etc. It hasn't made me happier to buy those things but I know it all goes to a good maybe it's helped a bit!

6. I have a ribbon on my car that says "pregnancy and infant loss awarness" I park directly across from all "expectant Mommy parking" in hopes that they will see it! (Sick, I know but I do believe that sometimes others need to know it's not all rainbows and bunnies!)

Ok, so I am tagging the following!

1. C.

2. Katie

3. Yummy (Heather)

Sorry gals but like CLC said to me, can't take anymore bad luck not that there is any attached to not doing this but you never know!

Thanks for the tag, Amy. I needed some comic relief on my blog :o)

I totally relate to the "not all rainbows and bunnies" thing. Somedays I want to let them in on this little secret, too, but I'm afraid they call me a grieving nut-job.

Oops. I missed a word. And I feel inclined to correct myself today :o) It should read

....afraid they WILL call me a grieving nut-job.

Is it wrong that I'm glad you do number 6?

Ha! You know, I have the day off today and have a list of errands to run. One of those errands is to get a license plate for my car. I should get a vanity plate that says, "DeadBaby" or "BabiesDie". Maybe I could get one of those yellow plastic signs that usually say "Baby on Board" and use a Sharpee to add "Dead Baby on Board".

Hey! This is my first time at your blog, but I saw you commented on mine so I had to surf over...I LOVE that we both rebel in the grocery store parking lot!!! I'm bookmarking you and will give you a more thorough read soon. Thanks for coming over to Oh Well!

Amy, I am a KCMO girl too. That is so exciting. Everyone else I have talked with has been from other states. I am glad to hear I have someone so close. I am really sorry to hear about your loss.
