I had a real crazy dream last night, or actually early this morning. My dog Buddy woke me up around 4:00 to go outside. Small dog, small bladder. Anyhow, after he got done doing his business I thought about staying up and watching some news or something because I get up at 5:00 and usually have trouble going back to sleep after Buddy’s potty runs. Well, I laid back down instead and felt like I really was not asleep. You know that feeling of between being fully awake and fully asleep.
Apparently, I was asleep because I found myself smack dab in the middle of this nutty dream. It started in my house which did not look like my house. We were throwing my granddaughter a birthday party, which we did on her last birthday. So I know where the setting of this dream came from. I came downstairs, I live in a single level house, but I have always wished to live in a two story house. I look around and I see a whole lot of people in my house. I suddenly realize that I have no food. I have no idea where that came from because we have food.
Next I see my daughter, Cinderella and she is wearing a Mormon frock. You know the dress with the long sleeves and high collar. Strangely, I do not ask why she is wearing this dress. I have been watching Big Love so that might explain that. She goes on to show me a cell phone that is red and black. Next, everyone goes outside and I am the last to go outside. When I get in the backyard I see that Corvette has turned on the water and the whole yard is nothing but mud. I also see that my garden is covered with a black plastic tarp.
I see all these people walking through the muddy yard. I go up to Corvette and ask him why he turned the water on. He just looks at me with a blank look. I then see a guy with work boots that are covered with mud. I turn to Corvette and say, “Do you see all that mud on that guy’s boots?” Again, blank stare.
But here is the most horrifying part. The people start walking ALL OVER MY GARDEN. And if you have been to this blog before you know that I LOVE my garden as I post about it weekly. Anyway, I kept trying to scream, “GET OFF MY GARDEN!” But, sometimes in dreams when you try to talk or run you find you can not do it. Well, this was the case in my dream. Try as I might, I could not get the words out. Finally I did but instead of the words staying in my dream, I actually shouted them out loud. Apparently I must of been pretty loud because at that moment Lucie, my big red dog leaped off my bed and ran out of the room!
I did not lay down again because there was no way I was going back in that dream! Funny thing is I never saw Butterfly, my granddaughter and I did not know anybody there except my family.
Sorry Miss Lucie, but that is my garden and nobody walks on it. Ever.
And, I do not think the Everly Brothers had this kind of dream in mind.

When my granddaughter was barely four years old, she was diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). This is a bit of a summary of the disease. ALL is a fast-growing cancer of the white blood cells. Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cells that the body uses to fight infections. In ALL, the bone marrow makes lots of unformed cells called blasts that normally would develop into lymphocytes. However, the blasts are abnormal. They do not develop and cannot fight infections. The number of abnormal cells (or leukemia cells) grows quickly. They crowd out the normal red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets the body needs.
Needless to say our family was devastated with this news. I won’t go into all the specifics, but about 8 weeks after the diagnosis, Butterfly was in remission and after another two years of chemo and treatment she is now cancer free. I may be wrong on all the specifics, but looking back, the whole thing was a blur and I just operated every day making life good for both Cinderella and Butterfly.
Last year my daughter, Cinderella and Butterfly participated in the Climb to Conquer Cancer 2009. This year they participated again. So here are some great pics of them climbing the mountain for a cure.

Sorry I have not updated sooner. I have been busy taking care of Butterfly and getting her to and from school while Cinderella is on her honeymoon.
The wedding was awesome. Everyone looked great and Butterfly was a mini-me of Cinderella. And Cinderella was just that. The ceremony was perfect and the reception was so much fun. I enjoyed dancing with Corvette and spending time with my family and friends. My parents were the longest married couple there. 62 years and counting. My mother gave a wonderful speech about marriage and I watched my daughter dance with her father.
There are too many pictures to post here so you can go to my shutterfly page to see them. They are not in the correct order and some were taken by Tango’s uncle so I will have to wait for the professional pictures to see our family picture.
Congratulations Cinderella and Tango, and may you live happily ever after!

Cinderella’s wedding is just 3 days away. Needless to say the excitement level is growing. Everything is coming together just fine and outside of a few things I need to do like packing, I am ready.
The weather forecast for Friday, the day Corvette and I will drive 2 hours to the wedding destination is calling for 70 percent chance of rain. Wonderful. Well, I guess we will just deal with it.
I can’t wait to see Cinderella in her wedding gown walking down the isle. My eyes get wet just thinking about it. My mind is flooded with so many thoughts and memories these days. I remember when she was born. This was before everyone found out the sex of their babies. I already had LCpl Honda. I so wanted to have a girl, but I was convinced it would be another boy. When she came out, Corvette said, “Oh, it’s another boy!” I remember feeling a little disappointed when I heard the Doctor say, “Well if this is a boy that’s the funniest looking penis I have ever seen!” I said, “You mean it’s a girl!” He said, “That right!” And me, I was estatic!
Cinderella has always been a unique girl. Growing up she was my sweet, little and very girly child. She always surprises me like when she was going to start high school. Her brother, who was a year ahead, was on the wrestling team. When we went to his first match, Cinderella turned to me and said, “Mom, I am going to do that next year.” And she did! Just know that this was the boy’s wrestling team too! She managed to get a pretty good record and placed third in a tournament!
She also surprised me after graduation when she came and said she was joining the Army. This was pre-9/11 when people were not joing like they are today. She made it through basic training and we flew to Missouri to watch her graduate. Needless to say it was a very proud moment for Corvette and I. I am also proud to say I have a veteran daughter.
She has had tough times in her life, but I do not want to speak of those today. This wedding is about love and life. I will sit in the pew and watch my little girl marry a most wonderful man. My heart will take yet another beautiful picture! I do not expect any surprises from her on that day, but you never know!
Cinderella, I so love you and I will be the proudest Mother-of-the-Bride ever!

Cinderella got a new tattoo in honor of Lolly Pop Kid. The movie ‘Cars’ was everything to him so of course she got the Lighting McQueen car. Here is a pic of it. The artist drew it freehand and did a nice job. She already has Butterfly’s name tattooed on her back and it is only fitting Lolly is there too. I thought about getting one. I really have no idea what to get. I thought about his initial. Hmm maybe a lollypop with his initial intertwined. I am going to have to think about that one.
I also spoke with Butterfly yesterday and she was kind enough to send me a picture of her room. She told me she rearranged it all by herself and for the most part decorated it too. I love it. It is sooo pink. What little girl would not love this room? I especially love the pink butterfly curtains. Very appropriate if I don’t say so myself!
Also, notice the movie on the TV. Yes, it just happens to be ‘Cars’ and of course there is Lighting McQueen with his big, toothy smile. Just like our Lolly. We know he is still with us and many ways.
BTW, his tree has a brand new orange bloom. I look forward to watching the oranges grow.
Love you big boy. Thanks for sending the love from heaven.
