Saturday night...

The day started out a bit chilly, but warmed up to a nice 60 degrees. The rain wasn't a problem, but was constant. That was until about 1:30. As it stopped raining and became just a drizzle, the temp began it's descent. Clouds filled the skies, rain continued to drizzle, and the temperature steadily declined.

After sitting home tonight, looking up videos on Youtube, and playing games on Facebook, I finally decided to check is now 10:40 pm and 37 degrees!!!

Yep, it's officially cold here now.

Thankfully, we don't have any of that white stuff that causes people to FORGET how to drive!!! Wait, Hilton Head people have problems driving anyway!!!

Song for You

you know who you are

What is love....?

“Love isn't finding someone you can live with, 
 it's finding someone you can't live without. ”

I woke up this morning to 43 and partly cloudy.

My mind has so many things spinning around in it. There are some decisions to be made on both a personal and professional level.

I am considering a move to a western or mid-western state, not planning, but considering.

I am missing her so very much. It's been decades. I made some decisions back then that I am feeling more today than ever.

But, I hold on to ths thought:

"Everything happens for a reason, even if we can't see the reason at this time."

Love you, Miss you

Missing you... much it hurts.

34 degrees, clear and calm

Midnight Ramblings....

I spent a lot of time talking to friend girls today. Just chatting, and catching up. They all have a lot of things going on in their lives. Either moving to a far away place, or juggling time between kids and work, or recovering from a minor vehicle crash, or having having relationship problems with a husband or boyfriend.

It makes me stop and think...does it ever really work out like we thought? Is there REALLY a "happily ever after" like we read about in stories as kids? Will life on this big round ball of dirt ever slow down enough for us to just enjoy the company of another?

I like being able to just listen. I might not be able to actually help or offer advice...but sometimes I feel like just letting them talk, vent, rant or just cry seems to help them in the long run. I might not understand all they are going thru, but just the fact that I CAN listen makes me feel like I might have helped in some small way.

I love you all, in your own special strong, ladies...that's what makes you what you are...AWESOME!

Sometimes the journey itself is more exciting than reaching the goal.

Full Body Scanner controversy

Here's a solution to all the controversy over full-body scanners. Have a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you.

It would be a win-win for everyone!

9:30 PM

Got called out to work at a jobsite about 2:30 today...stayed there til about 9. Now I'm back at the office, printing drawings to take with me when I go BACK out there at 7:30 tomorrow morning. We're trying to finish up an installation beore a 10AM inspection. It's gonna be tight, but we'll get it done.

55 degrees and breezy, but clear.

Today I'm helping a friend with some yard work...and doing some soulsearching about the future. Do I stay here, or move out west?

Mighty McFly

I got to see Mighty McFly last night for the first time in probably two years. What an awesome show. Brent's vocal range in phenomenal! Can hardly wait for them to come back in March...

Feels like 60 outside, and it must have just rained.

New friends...

I met some military men tonite. They are currently stationed at Fort Stewart, GA. They are deploying to the middle east soon. I will begin collecting things to send them care packages. I know first hand how much someone who is away from home enjoys receiving something in the mail. Especially if it's something they want or need.

These brave young men are fighting for me, for you, for the United States!! They are striving to RETAIN the freedoms which our founding fathers fought to GIVE us.

It may be a small jesture, but I feel strongly about supporting our troops! I will do what I can. Maybe it will help them make it thru the more than difficult times they are facing!

God Bless you, men. And THANK YOU!!

God Bless America !!

waiting patiently for the Mighty McFly to start playing...

One last try...

So I took my camera to Beaufort today. I really tried to get some good shots. But I'm honestly just not 'feeling it' anymore.

Here's a link to the shots I got. They aren't spectacular. Hence my disappointment.

More BLogging!!!

I am now mobile!!!

Thanks to I can now BLOG from my phone!


Saturday, January 23

48 and overcast. says it might clear up about mid-day and get into the mid 50s...we'll see.

Headed into work this morning to let the guys get some materials from the warehouse. Then headed to Beaufort to stop by the job where I designed and installed the system.

I'm taking my camera with me, just in case it clears up enough to get a pic or two. When I listed it on Ebay the first time, the reserve wasn't met, so I re-listed it. If it doesn't sell this time, I guess I'll just keep it.

Tonight, in Savannah, at Wild Wing Cafe on River St....THE MIGHTY McFLY!!!!

Overcast, mid 40s, foggy in places...

but this is THE place to be!!

I'm going to have to come spend the day in Beaufort tomorrow. It's kinda like a smaller version of Charleston or Savannah with the historic structures downtown. Maybe I can get a photo or two before I get rid of my camera on Ebay...who knows.

I will, however, be SO GLAD when I don't have to come back to this jobsite!! I mean, dang, how hard is it to make a decision and make it happen! Do you just LIKE paying us extra money to come over here and RE-do things?

It'll all work out. At least now I can say I have worked in the field...some

I'm just sayin!

Don't forget me...

Through all you do in life, wherever you go, whoever you are with, however you feel...dont forget about me.

As if I'M one to talk about relationships, huh?

It's just that I have noticed that I am not the only one to have "trouble" with relationships. I have many friends, and some family, who seem to be in a great relationship. But, whether it's with their spouse or love interest or whatever you call it, it just doesn't seem to be working out. Yea, people will disagree, and about ANYTHING. But some things just need to be overlooked!! COPE, people!!!

What? The toothpaste isn't squeezed like you like it? Oh, you don't like the way I fold the towels? I didn't realize you like the toilet paper UNDER and not over! Oops, I think I ran over your cat!

Come on people...why is it so difficult to make a relationship work?!?!?

This much I know: Love is not about YOU and you alone. It's about you AND the one with whom you SHARE the love!!! You can't take and take!! You have to GIVE AND TAKE!! Forget about how you want things done once in a while and just let them have the pleasure of folding the towel in half instead of thirds...IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT!!!

But, it works both ways.

I try to be a giver. Anything within my power,, I am willing to give or DO for her (whoever "she" is). But I won't be run over either. Make some concessions, but don't be bitter about it!

But don't allow yourself to be run over like a freight train either!!!

Why is it so difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

Is it because we Americans have been 'programmed' to "eat on the go"? Drive-thrus have become so popular that we can get almost anything as we drive from one place to another. We can drop off dry cleaning, pay our rent and utilities, pick up our prescriptions...I have even seen drive-thru beer and liquor stores!!

What's next, drive-thru dentistry, or eye exams?

A friend of mine recently told me of an observation. When she went back to her parent's home (in a non US country) all the citizens were thin and trim. She realized that most American she personally knows, or works with, are less thin. OK, even fat.

I believe it's because we don't eat right. We don't exercise right, if any! We are in such a hurry to stuff our faces, then sit around and watch tv instead of getting out and DOING something that we just bloat up and become "average Americans."

What's up with that?!?!

I had the most awesome Sunday E V E R - 24 hours of nothing but relaxation, no pressure of any kind, no heartache, no headcahe, no expectations or disappointments ... nothing but pure, honest, unadulterated, unfiltered, life-long friendship. I didn't know I could have a friend as wonderful as this...THANK YOU, my... caring friend, for being so wonderful and amazing.

I have nothing but love and admiration for you and the things you are doing with your life. You are a truly awesome friend, and I will be here for you through anything and everything. My door is always open to you. If you ever need anything, I will give, or do it for you. If you need another opinion on something, call me. If you need a shoulder to cry on, call me. If you need driving directions, I will Google it for you!! If you need a recipe, you KNOW I have it or can get it. If you need money, I will give you the number for Bill Gates HAHAHA

There I go, making you laugh.

Thank you for your friendship, and the love you give. Thank you for listening to me. Thank you for sharing with me. Thank you for being you!!!

2010: A New Beginning...

As the new year begins, we all go thru thoughts, recollections, times of decision whatever you call it...but we all do it. Many people make resolutions, which they tell others about. Some make them and keep them a secret. Others simply don't make them...
