What a week, things were a little crazy getting ready for a new program at work. Last night was the first night that I got home before 8 pm and a rough count was 72 hours this week. The girls were great about not getting into mischief while I was gone and Mary (again) was great in helping when available. And...........................there maybe a new career step in my future due to my being such a "fluid" person but that will have to wait until I have more details.

It's currently 9:46 am est, as I post and I just woke up after logging in about 10.5 hours of sleep. I have shielded myself all week because of today how my reaction would be, thoughts, memories, etc.. Ten years ago "da Wife" and I said "I do", and we did. It was a sunny day then in the middle of Hurricane Floyd, and as I type a ray of sunshine is warming my face through the window. Its weird how at few things are going on this week, that or how the mind plays its tricks on you that the event is the reason for the happening. How certain shows either begin or end this week that we watched together, the pumpkin scone, "X-Men Origins-Wolverine" coming out on disc this week (Heather wanted to go to see Hugh Jackman's naked butt lol besides liking the movies) or how I woke up this morning. I went to bed last night with the TV on and did not set the timer, remembering the last 12 years the good and bad together and promised myself and Heather to stay upbeat all day today and fell asleep with the TV still on. When I woke up about 15 minutes ago that promise was immediately put to the test as I saw Ryan O'Neil standing over Ali MacGraw in a hospital bed towards the end of the movie "Love Story". Surprisingly the only emotion that I felt was comfort as I watched briefly Ali MacGraw looking up from the bed, the character displaying strength and love in her last moments and it warmed me thinking of Heather.

Well enough gooey stuff for now plenty to do today, clean, laundry, Starbucks, buy Wolverine and maybe a little Indian food later.

Love you all, and welcome to the new follower (ever want to make contact e-mail at
