Happy Independence Day!


I found a nice image this year on one of those free to use websites that I thought summed up this year.

This year I will be spending time getting ready for the Tour of Saints and then later on in the evening I will be taking a ton of photos of Fireworks. I can’t wait! I hope everyone enjoys the holiday!

Check out the Pix! page for the photos of the fireworks!

Memorial Day 2012!

As I sit here on Memorial Day, I happened to miss something that I really did want to see. The cemetery where my mom isĀ buriedĀ has Memorial Day service that I thought would be a blast to photograph. I had thought that this was in the afternoon, but heard the gunshots at 10:30am.

For Memorial Day I think that we should be recognizing everything that has served their country, their community, etc. I think that we do not take enough time to thank the people that are their for us.

Some politicians make a lot of money, so do a lot of people. Many people though are volunteering and serving their community in many different ways. Thinking back to the Minneapolis tornado of 2011, someone died in the cleanup service to others. He did not die as a result of a bullet, but he should be remembered.

I work in a government position and everyone thinks that government has to be the best job out there. Someone that I happen to work with thought that I actually made okay money but later was shocked when I told him the salary that I do make since they know how many phone calls and emails I receive.

People volunteer, serve, cleanup, etc. Take some time to thank them.

Have a Hoppy Easter!

A birthday to forget?

April 7th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

My birthday was Wednesday… which became an interesting night. As I write this, I am sitting in my sister’s living room.

Wednesday night was my birthday, about 10pm I noticed something on my brother’s Facebook wall. My nephew Nikolai was flown from Long Prairie Hospital to the Saint Cloud Hospital. From there he was assessed and then flown to Minneapolis Children’s Hospital. Apparently he had a heart attack, seizure and then brain hemorrhage. Scary thought. Today, he is still in the hospital.

My sister has a daughter named Lily who has not been feeling well either. She was taken into the Saint Cloud Hospital this morning as she was acting lethargic. Today, on the day that my sister planned my birthday gathering my niece was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes and they are not really able to stabilize her blood sugar level.

As I sit here, thinking about how not fun all this is as you can’t focus so much on worrying, I sit here with my sister’s boys trying to make the best out of it. Life is short and with two of my siblings kids in the hospital, all you can do is pray. I can tell that Alex and Christopher do not understand what is going on, and they shouldn’t. They are not old enough to worry.

Let’s try to make the best of the day… the Jello shots and jalapeno cupcakes are awesome!

Happy 2012!

First off I would like to say Happy New Years! 2012 has arrived!

Let’s just say that I did the same old routine of sitting at home doing nothing. I did attempt to go out but with the nice snow fall that we were getting the roads were not all that great where I live. So the joy of the night was Avatar in Blu-ray.

Where Am I?
