This Week and this year

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today would have been your 69th birthday. I miss you everyday and I love you. I ain't lighting a candle for you like you asked.

Wednesday, January 01, 2014


As today being the first day of a New Year, I challenge each of you to take a quart jar and for everyday write one thing down that was good that day and put it in it. Then on New Year's Eve of 2014 take the pieces of paper out and read them.

There are some that might have lost interest in this blog. But I have not been to the reunions because my Mom has been ill or I have been. I am trying to get back in the swing of things and remember some of the stories that my dad had told me about his Navy days. There was one that always touched my heart. He said that he got the order to stop all engines. And go on the deck. There everyone was on the deck when this school of dolphins swam in front of the Cat. You see I love dolphins and dad knew it would make me smile. Some of you I have met and you made feel welcome. This girl loved her dad so much that I still miss him everyday. I hope you guys and ladies understand.

YEAR 2012

Well, this has not been the best year. But, I know that God is in control. To start it out my mom was in and out of the hospital. 29 days ago my Aunt in Texas was put in the ICU because of Pneumonia. She is still in ICU. Then on the 21 of March on my way out the door to go to church I fell down my steps and yet have gone back to work. So, I am not looking forward to the other 2/3 of the year.

Remembering My Dad

I don't know if you guys realized but the birthday weekend started on my dad's birthday this year. I went out and had all u can eat catfish to honor him. I wish that you guys could have known him. He was straight and to the point kind of guy. Things are going ok for me right now. We survived the tornadoes and now we are facing the floods.
Btw, CONGRATULATIONS to the Navy Seals on a Job WELL DONE!!!!!!

Update on Me

Some of you did not meet me in Portland at the reunion. But, I work full-time and now I am adding going back to school for a Bachelor's degree for Business Administration. This will be a four year program and I will be doing no vacations for this time. I am so upset that I will not get to spend time with you guys in person for the next four years. But, this is what I need to do to go further in my career.

I hope you guys understand. I will keep you guys up to date with my progress. And still keep me inform of what is going on in your lives.

For the ones that know me, know how exciting that I get when I can plan on something. And the closer it gets the more excited I get. Especially, when I get to see all my Catamount Family. You guys and gals rock. I can not forget the women. Oh, I have a surprise for you all. My mom is coming. I am really excited to show her a great time. Well, for you guys on the East Coast it is 5 min till the New Year. So, here is to you all. See you soon....
