Of urns

It's really bothering me that I can't get into Lucky's urn. I was beginning to doubt that there was even anything in there.

Tonight, I couldn't take it anymore, so I tried to pry it open. It didn't budge. So I tried to unseal it by taking a knife along the edges where the top/what I thought was a lid is. Nada. I cut into it a little and some black specks fell out. I guess those were ashes. There is no way to open it. I tried opening it from the base but it looks like it's impossible to get into without spilling the contents. How ridiculous. I wish I'd been told the standard urn was one that cannot be opened. I wish I had been given the chance to choose one. I didn't know.

I'm going to call the place that did the cremation sometime to ask how I'm supposed to open it. There has to be a way to get into it and leave the contents undisturbed. On the FAQ of their website it says that the cremains will be in a bag inside the urn. I guess it's possible that there was a bag and I cut it, but I doubt it. I'm not too happy at this point.

I guess part of the reason I'm so upset about this is that I still miss him so much. Having access to his ashes won't change anything; he'll still be gone.

On to happier news... Isa is doing great. She is so precious. She's growing so fast! I adore her. I don't know what I'd do without her. She's so much a part of the family already. My friend Leti's parents came over to meet her today; they instantly fell in love too. Her mom held Isa and she fell asleep in her arms. It was so sweet.

I'm going to Savannah tomorrow for the 4th and I'll be staying the night. I'm looking forward to it very much. I need to get away from Statesboro for a little while. I'll be seeing a great fireworks display from River Street. It should be beautiful. And maybe, just maybe, before the fireworks I'll get to see another amazingly, unbelievably beautiful Lucky Boo sunset.
