I can't believe 5 years have passed since I last held your hand, heard you call my name the way only you did (my dad put a ER on the end of my name DONNER) since I last hear you laugh, tell a story or hear you say I Love You. They say time heals and I guess that in a way it does, I don't cry every day but I still hurt. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and every once in awhile I forget that your gone and I go to pick up the phone to tell you something or ask your advice and then I remember.

Another Holiday season has come and gone, all the build up and it is over in a blink. Normally I hate to see the season end and there are two reasons for that.

  1. It means another Birthday is creeping up on me
  2. It marks another year since my dad's passing (1/21)

This year I was glad to put the holidays behind us taking down our tree and all its decorations on the Saturday after Christmas, cleaning out closets , getting rid of clothing that don't fit me any more (to big and I don't plan on going back there again) rearranging furniture, putting up a crib for the newest munchkin to join us and getting on with the commitments that I made to myself. I don't like making New Years resolutions but each year I make a few "commitments to myself

  1. Have a little more patience with the elders in my life.
  2. Try to be a bit more on time
  3. Tackle my to do list that is getting longer and nothing seems to be coming off.
  4. Make time for me and take a class (looking into a photography class)
  5. Last but not least, get back into my healthier lifestyle to continue to lose my weight.

I took a few weeks off from my healthier lifestyle and boy when I went to a meeting today was I glad to be there. The few ( ok the scale cried when I stepped on it) pounds I gained over this past few weeks was due to all the rich food,Christmas cookies, alcohol, general not eating right, not drinking my water & NOT THINKING about what I was putting into my mouth. It will take me a few weeks to lose what I put back on (I've been playing with the same 10 pounds since Kerri Ann's wedding) but there is something to be said for a routine.

One last thing, today was our Fur baby's Birthday! The kids sang Happy Birthday to Misty during lunch and my niece Fianna was so thrilled that she & Misty are both 3!

Normally I take any money I get as a Christmas gifts, Christmas Bonuses & Birthday gifts (mine is coming up this month) and put that money into the bank to pay bills. This year I decide to spend the money on myself (OMG) and buy a good digital camera.

So I have this that I absolutely love and will never get rid of it. I also have this for my day to day. It"s always in my pocketbook to get those unexpected moment with the munchkins. So now I am in the market for a good digital camera and I'm thinking about this one. I have heard good things about it and I trust the Company name. I have been reading reviews and trying to find out what others have and what they think of there camera. I want to make sure before I invest in one.
I could not let today go by with out wishing a Happy 17th Birthday to our nephew Michael. We are sorry that we couldn't be there this year to help celebrate your birthday. Know that we love you very much and are proud of all you do. Your the best Turtle!

Happy Birthday Michael
