Great Friends and My Class Reunion

Don't we look great after 34 years?
This is a pic of most of the peeople that showed up for our first class reunion,
it was only a small group...but a fun group.
Seeing as though it was our first one, I think we had a pretty good turn out!
We tried to keep it simple, and relaxed, and I think that was the best way.
No fancy dresses or hall to rent....
No DJ to take our money to spin tunes,
No bartender costing money to pour drinks....
We just had a blast in the backyard of our Class President.
And what I really enjoyed, is that I connected not only with old friends...
but I made new ones too!! People I knew in school, but didn't hang around with,
now I have a connection with them that I never had before.
For that, I will be forever greatful!!!
We are going to try to keep this up every year, and maybe even do some get-togethers in between the actual "yearly" reunions, so it will be fun!! It seems like now that we have
connected....we are not eager to let it go......
We can't seem to wait for a whole year.....
I'll keep you posted on when and if we get together again!!
Take Care,
Love,
Kat

Rain, Rain Go Away!

heavy rain image picture photo It has been raining hard here for almost the whole month of March,
and now most counties are in a state of emergency, because of the flooding that is happening everywhere!! They are saying on the news that this is the worst and most rain we have had since 1953!!

Most people's basements are flooded....mine isn't flooded, but there is a lot of water down there!!

People are losing their possessions.

Appliances are burning out, heaters and hot water heaters are being damaged and unusable. We are in a fix here.

Besides the rain being so damaging, it is also damaging to people's moods.

Everyone seems more moody now, most of the smiles and laughter is gone....

And it is replaced with the sullen looks of despair.

I just want the rain to stop.........

Till Next Time,

New Moon DVD is released!

New Moon Edward and Bella image
So the New Moon DVD was released at Midnight last night,
and unlike the Twilight frenzy I was in last year, I was not going to any New Moon Parties, or waiting anywhere for the midnight release.

I just waited until today to go and get it on my trip to the post office.
No frenzy, no madness,
Just waited until today....

I guess it's because I wasn't as thrilled with this movie when I went to see it in the theater. If you recall, I was less than thrilled with this, because of the vampire eyes. It never really looked right to me throughout the whole movie.
It kind of threw me off.....

But as I am a die hard Twilight fan, I had to buy this one anyway.
And now I am off to watch it....
and hopefully enjoy it more than last time?

Take care,
Kat

Grief, Loss and the Police...

grief image at gravesite Today I attended the funeral service for the mother of a very dear friend of mine, which in turn brought up so many hard memories for me.


My friend is a rock, she was wonderful, I don't know if it was an act, or she was surpressing her feelings, but I wish I was in that place....


I'm still not, and this seemed harder on me than it was for her?

Like I said, it brought up all those hidden feelings that I mostly keep burried deep inside, and don't let out for fear that the sobs will come again, and I won't be able to stop.


The last funeral service that I attended was for my Dad, and this brought all those memories back again. It was hard for me to be there, but I wouldn't have been anywhere else, than there showing my support for my friend....

No matter how hard it was for me.

Now, on the way home, I had to pass the entrance to the National Cemetary where my Dad is burried, and I felt like I had to go, even though I haven't been in a while.

If you know these National Cemetaries, you know that there are vast amounts of markers across the land, all flat with no definition....


As I pulled up to where I park on the circular road, I was puzzled as to where my Dad's grave was? It wasn't because I don't know....just that there are so many piled into this one area of land, and this land is completely covered in snow!!

I can't see anything but white!

I realize without even getting out of my truck, that I will never find my Dad's marker in all this snow!! I know the general area of where he is.....

But, when I have gone before, I still have to look around a bit before I find his marker.


I feel so lost............

I feel so alone............


I want to get out and go down the hill and over to the trees and walk upwards like normal, but there is snow and ice everywhere and I know that even if I did get down the hill without falling, I would have to scrape the snow away in many different areas before I find the one I am looking for.....


I just sit and cry.........


I fully expect a warmth to enfold me, to let me know it is alright....

But it never comes........

I just feel cold.......

And sad........


I don't know how long I sat there, but I realize that I will not be able to visit his grave today. I am thinking things to him in my mind, and hoping he hears me?


I blow a kiss in the general direction of his grave.....curse the snow, and drive away.


I am crying on the ride home.....this has been an emotional day for me....


And then I get pulled over for speeding.....

Didn't even realize that I was?

But I was.


I wasn't paying attention to my speed, and only when I saw the patrol car, did I look down and say "awwwww Sh*t" And then the blue lights came on.


I didn't hesitate....just pulled over, I knew it was me that he wanted....

Why not?

Nothing else is going right.....

I reached for my purse to get my license, and had it ready for him as he cautiously approached my window. Then I reached for the glovebox to get the registration. I had read that you should wait for them, so they don't think you are reaching for a weapon, or hiding something. (neither of which I would do)


He tells me that he has me doing 56 mph in a 40....

I have nothing to say but "okay"

I know that I am wrong....

Great news....this ticket will be through the roof!!!

Again, why not?


He takes my license and registration and says he will be right back.......

I just sit there thinking what a dope I am....

How did I let my emotions get the best of me?

Why wasn't I paying better attention?

At least I always wear my seatbelt, so I won't get written up for that!


He comes back, and says that he is giving me a written warning, and "try to slow down Ma'am"

Serious?

I just nod, because now the tears are rolling down my cheeks again, and I wonder how I got out of that?


I pull away, and only when I get home do I look at the warning, and see that he has put that I was doing 49 in a 40, so that justifies the warning instead of giving me the ticket that I deserved.


Sometimes you just have to wonder what is watching over you?

Was it because I was co-operative?

Was it because I was quiet?

Was it because I had been crying?

Was it because I was agreeable?

Or was it something else???


Till Next Time,

Take care,

Kat

Web Hosting Made Simple

Someone recently asked me about web hosting, and who do I use and how did I pick that provider? Well, the answer is simple, I did my research with the best possible information that I could find on the web!

I am one to always compare lots of information before making my choice, and this site is the best at offering all kinds of information to compare. There is the price comparison, and the hosting capabilities, as well as the performance of the hosting company. Then there is also the more techie things to consider, like bandwidth and photo sharing, etc.

What I like most and spend the most time looking at are the customer reviews that are listed, you really can find so much information from reading what the average Joe has to say about a company, rather than to read in a magazine what the said company wants you to know. These customer reviews are written by people like you or me, and offer valid points to consider when making a choice of a web hosting company. I like the fact that you can find out that the company that is offering a year of hosting for $3.99 a month, has lousy customer service and that they are down a lot of the time, meaning your site is also down, and you can't get someone on the phone to help you!! In essence, the price value isn't worth the aggravation. This is a wonderful place to find out how the average user's needs were met, or not, and really can help you make an informed decision when choosing a web hosting company.

Best of luck!
I hope you found this helpful!
Take care,
Kat
