Hello again

Wow it's been such a long time since I've been on here that I forgot how to log in. Had to get them to email me my information. Lots has happened since back in January (my last post) but nothing too significant that anyone would be dieing to hear about. It shows how exciting my life is that on the day the world is supposed to end I'm on my computer typing about nothing.

My sidekick Dante is beside me looking for something to get into. He is 7 months now and I think hes as big as hes going to get unless he gets fat like me. He is a very good dog overall but still has a lot of puppy issues to get through. I look out at the backyard through my window and see his toys spread out all over the place. It's a small back yard but its starting to come around and look cute. I built a garden for Patty out there and now she has to do some planting. Ben and I built a small deck to go with the one we already had and we put a swing seat on it. We need to find a small patio set to go out there although I'm not sure how much we will use it. We are all on different schedules and when Patty's getting home I'm either leaving for work or at work. I do a lot of bbq ing out there even in the rain because I enjoy it. but then again it doesn't rain out here as much as most people think. Yes we do get the odd day or two where it rains non stop but most of the time we get a sprinkle then it looks like rain all day but you don't get any. Today it's supposed to rain all day but we are heading to Adam and Mary's for a bbq. It was sprinkling this morning but we haven't had any more in over two hours and it's pretty mild outside.

Gwen is getting big and she is way too smart for her age. Grandma gets to spend lots of time with her and I'm sure they both enjoy it. I don't get to see her as much as I'd like but enjoy the times I do see her. Grandma and I got her a swing set. Ben and Adam set it up from what I heard but I'll check it out today and see if it needs finishing.

Patty got a new tattoo a week ago. Three Celtic hearts in a row representing her 3 boys. I'm looking at getting a new one in memory of my mother who has been gone 25 years this November. I'm looking at a Celtic shamrock with her name under it on my left arm. I've found a shamrock that I like now I just need to get the underneath designed something like a ribbon with her name in it. I often think about how different things would have been if she hadn't passed so long ago. Where we are, what we are doing and how we got there would all be different. I like where I am and what I'm doing and especially who I'm doing it with but who knows what might have happened if she had lived a while longer. It's bumps like this in our life that change our directions and leads us to where we are today and to what we are doing.

So on this day that is in what some people say will be the end of the world as we know it I just want to send out love to all my friends and family and I hope you all have a great day doing whatever your doing with whoever your with.
