Well, there is nothing that can be said that hasn't already been said this week.  It is not just the Sandy Hook School that is in mourning and shock over the events of last Friday. Forsythia, if I had an answer for it, I would tell you...I'm not sure there's any kind of answer that could really answer the question, 'why'.  Even if there was an answer to this question, it would never be good enough to justify what has happened.
U.S., you must give up a little of your 'right to bear arms' to keep people safe. Even if it's just to give up the right to bear assault rifles. These can't be used for hunting or anything useful to the average person. They are meant to be used in the military to shoot 100 rounds at once. To kill many in a very short time. Why would the average citizen need this?
When asked about his feelings on this issue, someone from the NRA insensitively commented, "Guns are fun!"
Yes, and the people of New Town have been laughing hysterically all week, buddy....

Yes, I'm Back!

It has been a very long time since I've posted, and for that I am truly sorry.  I have been all wrapped up in getting all my crazy health problems sorted out, but I think I have a handle on it now.
Let's catch up...
NAI Hubby is doing great in his new venture.  It was slow to start, of course, but it's coming along. I'm so proud of him!  He has also been so supportive and caring through all my health problems, I do believe that he is the best hubby ever! And I do mean that. How did I get so blessed. Just when I think my life is spinning out of control, I look over at him and he says, "I got you."  Sigh...then everything is right in my world once again. What more could I possibly ever want?
My Holly is doing so great as well.  She just turned...well, she's in her mid 20's or so..(I have no idea how old she is) but anyway, she just had her birthday Nov. 30 and she's definately a year older than last year, if that helps.  She's still in christian school trying to earn her doctorate, but there are a lot of steps.  She's working hard on that as well as doing a lot of work for the church.  She may be taking over the youth group soon.  Now for the 'big' Holly news...she has a boyfriend.  She has been with him for over a year and it looks like he is the one!  He's a wonderful boy. Very smart, a christian, involved with the church and we just love him.  More importantly, Holly is completely in love with him and vice-versa.  They are in pre-marital counceling with the pastor and seem to be doing everything right in order to be ready for marriage and all it entails.  I love how happy she is. It's wonderful and I really believe they were made for each other. Even though they are in pre-marital councelling, they're in no rush to get to the alter just yet.  But, they are so cute together.  I'm very pleased. And his parents are just wonderful people. They love Holly very much and she spends a lot of time over there. I love that Holly has such a good relationship with his parents.
Ashley, Rob and the kids are doing great as well. They are very excited for Christmas. The kids are getting so big, I just can't believe it. They grow so fast..Here is a recent pic...

Well, see you soon.
