I don't want to speak too soon. But things are okay on this end. That doesn't mean that life does not feel different; because it does. There is a certain emptiness that I feel right now, and that sucks. But things could be worse, right? I have this awesome way of dealing with things that I really don't want to deal with...it's called not thinking about it. Life has to go on. I have to keep things normal for myself and my children. Life in this next year will be all about fun, a little work, and planning for the future. Okay, and now I'll get off of my soapbox because I'm starting to irritate even myself with this damsel in distress crap. I do have to say though, that I sincerely appreciate all of the phone calls and emails that I got this weekend and today. I feel loved. I'm actually glad that we got the good-byes over with...I feel for my friends, as they will be in the same boat very soon. I will be calling and emailing you to make sure you're okay...
Our trip to LA yesterday was good. Had a small hiccup in Houston when I missed the 610 North exit, but I quickly fixed that. All in all, we made it safe and in good time.
I know that I have some very loyal readers on this blog and I appreciate that. Again, I say that the whole purpose of this blog was to inform friends and family of our happenings and whereabouts and if anything, I want you to be entertained at the same time. If this blog is boring, then what's the point of reading it. I'll try to post lots of pics throughout the next year, because I know that Phillip would appreciate it. He likes my style of writing. At times, I want to quit this blog, but then he threatens me with violence (just joking) if I actually go through with quitting. I'll have to get on him about actually updating his own blog, and I would also appreciate it if he'd take off that darn pregnant pic of me that he's got on it. As soon as he posts something new, I'll add him to my blogroll to your left and then you'll see that absolutely horrible mother-hen pic that I'm talking about!
Anyway, I know I'm rambling. Right now, I have the time to. Gabe is with his Pa-pa and Ya-ya at a funeral/wake. Hey....he wanted to go.
As for our exciting day today, we went to visit my Dad and my Mom. My uncle killed a HUGE water moccasin in Mom's backyard and I got a couple of pics of it. WELCOME TO LOUISIANA!!! I'll post the pics when I can download them to my handy new pen drive (am I spelling that right?).
