Somewhere More Familiar.......
Random Thoughts and Musings from my mind, generally while I'm at work.

I wrote this right before the 4th of July this year, thought I'd post it here.

Anywho, the real reason for this entry is the 4th of July right around the corner. I'd like to wait until Saturday to write this, but I have a feeling I will be too busy with family stuff, eating, blowing stuff up etc to write.
I looked at some interesting articles the last few days and found some pretty neat quotes. Check out this qoute from John Adams to his wife. (remember, the the resolution of ... Read More

It's kind of hard to be writing right now. The last few things i wrote were for Mamo (my grandma) and to be writing again, even a few days later still is hard.

Her service was very nice, very hard to get through and experience, but very nice. I think she would have enjoyed it and sure must have liked seeing us all together. The flowers were beautiful and plenty, my brother did a great power point show with alot of pictures of her and family, I burned a few CD's with her favorite ... Read More

I'll have more to say, at some point, when it all feels real, but yesterday, December 21st, 2008, around 4:30 PM, my grandma, who we call Mamo, died. She passed away, and was pretty peaceful. She had been sick for awhile, and had alot wrong with her, but up until about a month ago, she was still out and about, very lively, and then all this crept up.

Ive always lived within about 25-30 min from her, and it just doesnt feel real. We were all down at the hospital with her, and i already ... Read More

I HATE looking for new cars. Its a completely broken process. First as soon as you get there, the Velociraptors jump right on you after about 3 min of stalking. Seriously. you get out of your car. I usually wander over to what i want to see and all of the sudden, you see a salesman come outside and try to head you off. As you turn to take a different angle, you see another salesperson coming from the middle of the lot. Then, as you head towards the SUV/Trucks, you realize that they have been ... Read More

Wanted to write today, actually wanted to write the last few days and just didnt get around to it. Lots of stuff going on, some good some bad.

My grandma is still in the hospital, though she has become responsive. She is on a ventilator (which is like a death sentence for elderly people). But she has opened her eyes and recognizes us. If you ask her yes or no questions she will shake her head to answer. So i go down there everyday and talk to her. Tell her about my work day, ... Read More

I'll admit it, my strength has been sapped from this whole ordeal with my grandma. Everyday is a repeat of the day before, and all i can do is sleep when i get home now.

And now i feel guilty for complaining that I'm tired from all this.

The Noles lost in an embarrassing display. Way to go guys, the ACC was yours and you blew it, again.

The Bucs won, despite our best efforts to not score a TD all game.

The ole wifey is gone for a few days, ... Read More

My grandma is in the hospital (again) for what looks like the last time. She coded last night, things aren't going well, and my family is a mess. I've lived within 30 min of her (and the rest of my family) since i was 2 years old (im 28 now). This is definitely a tough time. After being at the hospital all day and night, i decided to come into work to kill some time.

I'm expecting a call sometime today with the bad news..........all i can hope for is what's best for her.

Do you ever get the feeling that at some point in the very near future, something will happen, or you will have a random choice to make that will affect alot more than it should? I have that sort of feeling today. I have no idea what it is, or what it will be, but it seems like in the next week or so that things will be very different. Im not doing anything exciting, not going anywhere, have no big decisions (that i know of) on the horizon, but i cant shake that feeling that there is a change ... Read More

Fantasy football related. My opponent had Cutler on Thursday Night (who went off) and i had just my kicker going in the 1 PM Sunday games. By the end of the 1 PM games, i was down 108.6 to 8. By the end of the Sunday games i was down 147 to 103.1 with Warner, Gore and Boldin still to play.

Obviously they all had good games, i won by 21 and achieved the greatest comeback ever. How many people can say they were legitimately down over 100 points and came back and won? Plus, that ... Read More

With some dead time at work this morning (thank you economy for sucking so bad), I figured I'd take some time to throw some thoughts out there. They may not be particularly interesting, but I've always found it intriguing to lay your thoughts out in some format that can be saved, and be able to revisit them days, weeks or months later. A self time capsule I guess.

I'm wondering, like many others, if my job and my wife's job are safe. We both are doing fairly well for ourselves, ... Read More
