Random Stuff

Monday night we went to the funeral home to see the son of a friend of ours. He was only 27 years old. They think he died of a accidental overdose of pain medication. Our friend is going through a rough time right now. His dad died over the summer, he is going through his 2ND divorce and now this.

He could use some prayers.

It rained here all day yesterday and now most of our snow is gone. One thing I don't like about these next few months is that everything is gloomy looking.

I'm here but my heart is still on that cruise ship!

This is been a tough vacation to recover from. I don't know if it's the time of year, or my dissatisfaction with my job, or the fact that I am getting older but I have had great melancholy for this particular vacation. I just want to still be there, you know?

Yesterday Shauna and her boyfriend sent us this:

All this wonderful chocolate-covered fruit! It tastes so good, too!

Last weekend we watched what I consider the worst movie I ever saw. Its called The Happening. Don't waste 117 minutes of your life on this movie! The concept of the movie was good. Something in the air was causing people to go into a trance and commit suicide, but the acting was horrible and the plot didn't make sense most of the time. I don't even know why we finished watching it. I guess we were expecting it to get better but it never did! Anyway, just a warning!

Well, that's all the stuff kicking around in my head right now.

Tomorrow is Friday at last!

I'm so sorry for your friend, Jeanette. Goodness gracious; I'll pray for him.

My girls returned home today from their cruise, and I can't wait to see pictures as I'm sure they took a lot of them.

I know what you mean about this time of year; it's downright depressing if we let it be. I look out at the yard where not that long ago, it was all green, flowers, etc. and now, I close my eyes and dream of Spring.

Much to be thankful for though! Have a GREAT weekend! Love the "delight" your daughter & s-i-l sent. How sweet!!

I'd love to be in the tropics with some of that chocolate covered fruit! Repeat after me, "Spring is surely just around the corner."

Sorry to hear about your friend Mom. I think about the cruise every day! I really enjoyed spending all that time with all of you!

So sorry for your friend's troubles. Sending good wishes.

And thanks for the head's up on the movie. I've been wanting to see it, but everyone thinks it's a stinker. ;-)
