And so it goes...

Hd recently took a new job within his company,
which is GREAT!

He has been with the company almost three years
and he loves it, the people, the opportunities,
and the fact that he is always moving up
and always looked up to!

With taking on this new position,
he has also taken on a lot more travel time.

Out of the past six weeks, he has traveled three of them.
(all to New Jersey, some three, four or five day trips)

Now with the Jersey Project complete,
he is now on to bigger and better things like...

He leaves today for a six day trip to Cali!
Which is great for him, not so great for me!

After this trip, he still has two more to LA
in late May and one in June.

Hopefully one of those I can tag along with him?! :)

seven years.

I wish Heaven had a phone, so I could hear your voice again....

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new...
I thought about you yesterday and days before too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part...
God has you in his arms...I have you in my heart.

I love you Dad

newest love

Since being unemployed, I spend a lot of time online...
and a lot of time watching day time television.

During the last several months I have grown
to develop a very strong relationship with...
CSI: Miami
-like major junkie!!-

I've also watched some CSI: NY and Law and Order
but CSI: Miami currently has my heart.

I've set out looking for the seasons, because the episodes
I watch daily are just randomly rotating, and have come
to discover that there are 8 seasons of this amazing show!

Here's to looking forward to purchasing allllll of the seasons
AND watching them from start to finish!!!

Good Friday

Today is Good Friday.

Good Friday has the obvious meaning,
but then there is a more personal meaning for me.

On Good Friday Seven Years Ago,
(april 18, 2003)
I lost my dad.

How ironic is it, that Nicholas Sparks Book
"The Last Song" also hit theaters this week
-wednesday, to be exact-

With all the hype about "The Last Song"
-mainly because Miley Cyrus plays the main part-
It has gotten over looked what the movie is really about...
A young girl losing her father.

So in honor of Good Friday, my Dad and Nicholas Sparks,
hd and I will be spending the day at an afternoon
viewing of "The Last Song"
-I mean, if it's already going to be a sad day, why not welcome the tears?-

If you have not gone and seen the movie,
I suggest you do so!
But most importantly, buy the book!!!
Read it and have a gooood cry!
It is one worth owning!

God is good all the time!
All the time God is good!
