I am sorry

This last week I lost my grandmother Vicki and did not find out till Sunday she had passed. I know she is in a better place and I am happy knowing that. Unfortunately, I am left with a sense of anger towards myself for not visiting her more often. I didn't realize until this elderly gentleman fell in front of the coffee shop yesterday, how much it upset me she passed away. I called the ambulance as he stayed laying on the ground. It seriously scared the hell out of me and made me think about my grandparents. My grandfather also was in the hospital last week because of irregular heart rhythms. He is doing okay now, but had they not caught it in time. He might have suffered a heart attack or blood clot.

Moments in life are scary sometimes and I am a very emotional person. Which is funny since I hate crying!

Anyways, I didn't mean to be such a debbie downer today in my post, but I had to get it out. On the brighter side of life. I am scheduling to retake my mBlex test which will make me a LMT! The only problem it costs $195 to take the test, so I am hoping I do not fail it again. I like to think things happen at the time they do for a reason. Hopefully waiting will be worth it.

This little baby bear makes coming home from work and life worth it! So glad I have tomorrow off.

How does your family handle loss?

I remember exactly where I was on the day the twin towers got hit. I was in the backseat of my mothers 'toy truck', as we called it, on our way to school. Once we got to school we watched the news coverage in every class that day. Everyone around the world was in shock and I can't blame them. Now that I am older and a mother I understand how devastating the events from that day truly were and still are today. I didn't know anyone involved in the terrible tragedy and I can't even imagine what it was like. My deepest condolences are alway with the families who lost loved ones.

These pictures are pictures I took back in 2006-2007 my senior year of high school. They had just started the construction of the memorial site, that the towers once stood on. I have not seen or been to the finished site, but I've seen pictures. It's beautiful and a great way to remember those lost.

Labor Day Weekend

Our Labor Day weekend was a blast! Three day vacation. Yes please! Sign me up more often! We went over to Eddie's grandparents and cooked out! Along with we went fishing! We baited the poles with grasshoppers instead of worms. We lost the first grasshopper, but successfully caught two fish. We threw them back don't worry! 

We also went to Eddie's Aunt Julie's house Labor Day and had Chinese food! I could go on for day about my undying love for curry! Which someone made a shrimp and tofu curry. I was in heaven!

We also played my all time favorite board game Sequence! :)

What did your family do for Labor Day weekend!? Any plans for this weekend?
