......

Well I'm not really knowing right now what to blog about but since I know it's been awhile, I am forcing myself to blog.

Today has been a bit of a sad day. My Uncle Bob died yesterday. He was really the sweetest man you'd ever meet. Never upset, never a harsh word - just always smiles, joking, & a true caring heart. It's just one of those times you know it's best because there's not one bit of me that wanted him to be in pain, but then it's just so sad to think of family togetherness without him. I guess one of the things that really hurts me is knowing that my kids will never get to grow up with him like I did. With as little as we've been able to see them over the last few years, Kalli & Dylan really loved Uncle Bob & were heartbroken when they heard he was getting sick. He was the kind of man you could meet once & be friends forever - a truly geniune individual. Tomorrow is going to be pretty tough saying goodbye at the funeral.

Now since this post is already tearing me up, I need to talk about a little good. Jim is coming home! He is finally completely done with the Marines! Now instead of worrying about him out in Iraq, we can just stress about him here. Go figure! But it will be nice having him home. :)
And then there's this:

A little something that's been good for me today - creating this layout with these old pictures of Kalli & Dylan. Everytime I look at those pics, they just make me smile.
Guess that's it for now..... until next time..... :)
