monk monk

I have an introduction I need to make. I would like everyone to meet Monk Monk. I know this is stupid and maybe a little crazy... but Monk Monk was special to Michael and I. While Michael was deployed to Iraq in 2006, I made him to send to Michael. I didn't buy him in a store or anything, I actually cut, stuffed and sewed him all together. Yes I had directions and it all came in a kit, but I actually made him. Michael held onto him until we were married and living together in Oceanside. For the longest time, we had to hide him because Samara wanted to rip him to pieces.

So now since everything has happened, Monk Monk has come out of hiding. And yes even though I am 23, he is sort of like a security blanket for me. I will be bring him everywhere with me. Especially since I now have this itch to go and travel.

So everyone, meet Monk Monk... Monk Monk meet everyone...


  1. He should get a special picture in every place you travel to! Your symbolic little piece of Michael, that will go with you everywhere. :)

    PS. Thanks for the birthday wishes!!

  2. He will :) That's exactly what I intend on doing.

    p.s. you're welcome and thank you for the anniversary wishes :)

  3. Hi Monk Monk!! I can't wait to hear all about your adventures with Allison. :)

  4. So now I have a Monk Monk grandchild, I hope the next time you come over you brintg my grandchild withy you, you've failed to introduce us in person, heard about him but hadn't been introduced officially. I guess I too have to get a photo album of him, ha ha ha. I hope I get cards from the both of you while travelling, for my album of course.
