Home again! well it's been a couple days since my computer crashed and that i've been home from Tjnya's puppy sitting. Got my computer up and running again, actually a friend did for me, thank God. Once back online, i caught up with all my email and aol journal entries. I was elated about seeing Ashley Judd's journal again. 3 stories from her input today. I've missed her journal tremendously. I got addicted to it soon after beginning to read it. I hope she writes a book of her journeys overseas. Anyways, I like how she doesn't sugar coat her entries. She tells it like it is which is most needed in our world. It's tough reading, but life is hard at times. Harder for those people in Africa and other countries in the same boat. I just am reminded to count my blessings. I don't have it tough compared to those people.....anyways, I"m home again. It's nice to be home after a week at Tj's with Tabou. Lil Tabou was alot of fun, but there's no place like home. My kids missed me as much as i missed them. I did come home and visit with them at times, but it was short lived before returning to Tjnya's. Now i must clean house and catch up with school work. My computer crashed on me Wed mornin'. It's taken 2 days to reinstall windows xp and all the other files. my notebook had major trouble reading the xp files. finally, i'm online again! how did i ever live without a computer 2yrs ago, lol. now it's like my life.....lol.
one more note before i go. i saw kathleen this week. i told her i was exhausted from all the blues i experienced the past 2 months (very unusual to have the blues that much) so after talking with kathleen, i decided to take off the rest of the week from work. it's been great rejuvenation period. just what i needed. life is good again. my spirits are lifted and i'm ready to kick ass in life again. and o yes, i had a date too this past weekend. it was really nice.
ok i'll write more laterz once i'm caught up with school. i am sooooooooo happy to be home!

the fire is burning coffee is brewing , and my dinner sits cold on my plate , yet i eat it anyways i would like this entry to be a small tribute to Gary ....Gary was a postal customer of mine i learned today that he had died of cancer back in October (this was the time i was out from a broken toe) i met his only daughter today, Amber i had been wondering for awhile now why i hadn't seen him he usually will at least stick his head out the door and say hello to me when it's been awhile ...i can't believe he's gone and a tear rolls down my face........i don't see all my customers on my postal route, but there are certain ones i see all the time Gary was one of my regulars he was only 56 a wonderful guy he just retired last year from his job at sandia labs he was always tinkering around the house when i saw him his last project was working on an old international scout fixin it up to be his drive around vehicle he painted it that lime green color i don't like but he did such an excellent job it almost looked neon he took the top off lifted it up and put these humongous tires on it he rebuilt the engine , or bought a new one he did every detail and one door he wasn't ever satisfied with the results so he was constantly sanding and resanding and repainting he has this gorgeous sailing boat in his front yard kept asking me to help him wash it i actually thought about it, but you know how life goes ......if i remeber correctly, the last time i saw him last summer, he told me he had cancer i asked if he was ok, and of course he said he was that was just before i broke my toe in september anyways, this cancer stuff has got to quit 2 other customers have been dealing with it too plus a co-worker has delt with it and is now in her first year of remission ........there's got to be a cure one day......i wear my Lance Armstrong 'LIVESTRONG' bracelet and will continue to do so especially for a Gary. he will sorely be missed he already is.......he was a great guy!
