One year

One year ago my sweet friend Melissa got her wings and went to be with her dad. The first year that a loved one is gone is a tough year. All the firsts make it so hard. Whenever I think I can't take the pain any longer I remember that Melissa can breath,run,dance and that most of all we have a special angel waiting for us. Gone, but never forgotten. Until we meet again...I carry your heart with me...I carry it in my heart.

It's Monday and the weather can't decide what it wants to do...rain or be sunny. The weekend was good, other then having a little tummy trouble and the electric going off while I was in the shower Sunday morning. We had dinner at my BIL's house with Ray's parents who are back together. Strange, but true. They are getting married in Dec. on the 24th. Sunday the electric went out and stayed out for 3 hours soooo I was forced to read and not do any laundry at all :P. My Dad and Janet popped by for a brief visit. That was nice. Sorry about not being able to give you coffee, Dad. Ray took me to dinner and then my SIL called from KY and we talked for an hour and a half. It was great, I don't get to talk to her much and with all that's going on in the family it was nice to hear what she thought. Watched Real Housewives of NYC and went to bed. Feeling better this morning, but I'm still not sure about my tummy. We'll see I guess. Finished The Spellmans Strike Back by Lisa Lutz and also The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen. Both were great. I'm now reading Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman. I'm enjoying it. Ta ta for now.

Missing daughter found

My neighbors daughter called home and said she was sorry for causing so much trouble.

Weekend roundup

Sat. night with the girls was fab. We drank, we played games, we talked. Maureen left early as she missed her it was just me and Char. We had a great time. We talked until 3:30am..I went out to make coffee for Ray and looked at the clock and it said 2:10 and then 20 mins later it was 3:30 how did that happen then I remembered the time change. Char left on Sunday morning, I took a shower and needless to say fell asleep on the couch and don't remember much of what was on the TV for the day. Ray came home at about 6 and said nappy time...I said all day was nappy time. It was a great night and we will have to do it again.
Sadder news is my neighbors daughter is missing. She left NYC at 1am Friday morning and never got home. I'm praying for her to be found fine and just didn't bother to let anyone know where she was going. She was suppose to be coming to my neighbors house, but she never showed.
Not much reading this weekend, but I'll make up for as TV is crap tonight. Later.

Haven't been up to a whole lot..last week Ray and I and a few friends went out to dinner for one of the friends birthday. It was a fun, but long night. I did see a bunch of people I haven't seen in forever. This Saturday a couple of friends are coming for a sleepover/drink night. One lives in Middletown so it's just easier to stay the night at my house. It will be great to have some girl time with them. Ray thinks he'll go to camp. Kev is painting our hallway today,same color as the kitchen...Boston Cream. Can't wait to see it tonight.
Today would have been Melissa's 42nd I sang to her on the back deck and have promised myself I will not cry....I've done fairly well so far. Have a great weekend.

Long time

Well it's been awhile so I figured I see how it was over here at Blogger. My day has been CRAP...had to clean up some random kids barf this morning since the adult that was with him didn't think it was her problem. Then I'm helping a work mate change a water bottle and as I'm taking the old one off it slams me in the chin/mouth area...and to top it all off someone stole our curtains from the upstairs bathroom here at the library. So how was your day????

Weekend round up

Maureen and I met for a funeral for our high school friends Dad. He was 81 and will be miss by all. It was lovely to see her, we figured it had been about 7 years since we'd all gotten together. We made plans to have a sleep over (so we can drink) in March. Then it was Chelsie's 15th birthday party. It was great. Lots of fun and food. Chelsie had some friends to sleep over and got some wonderful gifts. Sunday was quiet as the weather was crap so I stayed home, read and watched some TV. No Man U matches on this weekend, just FA cup. Finished Kisser by Stuart Woods and started The Defector by Daniel Silva. Well happy Monday all.

First Book

I finished my first book of the new year. It was good. I liked the characters and there were plenty of false leads. I can't seem to settle on the next one though. I stated one last night and didn't like now I'm on the hunt.

First Book

So my first book of the new year is The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths. I'm a couple chapters in and I'm having a great time. I love mysteries. For awhile I was reading more gentle books as things in my life were a little sad and I needed a break. Now I'm back to reading what I love. Still have the sadness in my life, but I'm getting through it slowly, but surely.
I'm watching John Adams on DVD. It's really good. I enjoy history as long as it's not being crammed down my throat.
Again this year I'm going to read more and watch less TV. I say this every year and most years I do it. I've taken on no new I'm just watching the standard ones I have for years. I've even given up a few. Desperate Housewives and Grey's being 2 of them . I find I don't miss them at all.
As for the new year, I'm hoping for more joy than sorrow. The end of 2009 just about crashed me and I'm slowly coming back to my own. So here's to joy, love, happiness and peace.
