Relay for LIFE!

This weekend was the Relay for life, which the girls took part in with the Young Marines. They had a lot of fun and was able to spend the night and walk for a great cause. It has been a pretty good, laid back weekend. The weather has cooperated so far,  but today it’s a dreary day outside. I go back to the daily grind tomorrow and anticipate the  next couple of months to be long and hectic. But, I hope to see some days off  in between and look forward to spending that time with family, old friends, new friends, and many more who make this life of mine a long-lasting memory. Life is what you make of it, and if you spend it working all the time you will definitely miss out on the best it has to offer. I thank God each and every day he grants me, and to do what I can for my family, and to grab each and every moment that is possible.  I’m not saying that life isn’t a struggle, it most definitely is. With that being said, don’t take it for granted, tell everyone that you care about how you feel, how much you appreciate them being in your life. Without these special people you could not be who you are today. The many people who have touched my life in the past and even now have made me who I am today. I strive each day to do better, love more, thank more, and complain less. God is Good…….. He will provide, it may take a while to realize it but he will never give up on us.

God Bless….


Easter 2012

Well it’s been a pretty laid back day. The girls are at that age where I don’t have to go all out and hide easter eggs and make a big easter dinner. So it made my day easier needless to say. They had the chance to hunt for eggs anyway on Saturday with some great friends of mine. We started the day with Sunday mass which was outstanding as usual. Father Don knows exactly  what to say to grab my attention and makes me realize how much I miss going to church. It’s so hard to get away these days with the way my work schedule is set up, but I try to go as much as I can. I spent the weekend trying to soak up as much rest time as I can get, I have a busy week ahead of me. The girls are off for spring break and even though I love them to death, they need to get out and spend the night with friends. Keeps me from worrying about them while I’m at work. Saturday night was of course Awesome!!! Scearce & Ketner rocked the PUB as usual. It was a packed house and everyone was on their feet dancing, singing, and of course having a few Guinesses.  A really good friend was able to come out and enjoy some great music and good beer as well.

All in all it’s been a good weekend, if only it was longer! Looking forward to my next day off, should be interesting??  🙂   Happy Easter, Luvs to All…. and GOD BLESS!!!!

MY Days Off!!

It has been a long weekend. I have today and tomorrow off so of course I tried to plan for something. Well that something has fallen through with this tornado of a house of mine. It’s already 230 and I have finished my living room, dusting, rearranging things and now I’m moving onto the laundry and my bedroom. I’m leaving my most hated household chore to last, the dishes! Needless to say I have had an ok day. I need to start downsizing on clothes and other random stuff that has cluttered up this small living space of mine. The kids don’t help things either by coming home from school and throwing their school bags and  books around. Seems to me that most of my free time for myself is in the evenings when they slow down from all the on-goings throughout the day. Spring break is around the corner and this year I will not have it off. I will have two days and then work the rest. Really not looking forward to it at all. It is what it is a I guess. Well I better get back to this thing I call my house and get some more stuff done. So glad I have a bottle of wine and some strawberries waiting for me in the refrigerator. 🙂
