High Five to Mother Nature

The snow and ice are finally melting away. I was going put forth this great big effort of shoveling my driveway, much like my neighbors were doing, but I figured I would just let Mother Nature take her course. High five to Mother Nature. It all melted away by sundown. Whew! No wasted energy on that chore!

Wow, two posts in a row. Watch out folks, it's going to snow! Oh, wait. It already did. Like a foot.

That Woman

I was sitting at the local dive last week having breakfast with Josh. I noticed a woman sitting at the counter, drinking her coffee and listening to her cd player. This woman, facial features that were hard, like she had been through so much. Her features were almost manly. I sat and wondered all she had encountered in life and why at that moment was she there, sitting on a stool at the counter drinking coffee.

We all ponder the questions of why we are here and if there is something so much bigger than all of us out there. This is where faith and belief come in. But what if you don't necessary have faith? I don't want a bunch of people telling me I need to go to church and find the Lord. Obviously, these questions have been pondered upon well before JC.

This one lonely woman opened such a box of questions for me. You know, I used to have panic attacks about death. I don't know if I ever told you that. I would lay awake at night, trying to fall asleep, and then I would think about dying and freak out. The part that freaks me out is not knowing what is going to happen. Will I know I am dead? What happens to my memories? Will it be like I never knew I existed? This is what I am afraid will happen. No one can actually tell me that we all go to heaven. I don't know if I can believe that person. How do they know?

My goodness... I have certainly brought up a subject that will have people who don't normally comment here come by. Hope not. It's just something that was on my mind at this very moment. I thought I would just type it out.

Hope you are all having better weather than I am. We got about 8 inches of snow. Some parts of the state got 2 feet with 5 feet of drifts. Driving should be fine tomorrow. Have a great weekend!

Perhaps one day I will be that woman sitting at the counter, drinking my coffee, listening to my music and wondering what happened with my life.

I am getting ready to head into work. Another Sunday.... joy. The weather has been so beautiful, it's been hard to get motivated. At least the sun is still up when I get home.

Hope you are all having a restful Sunday.

Blogging has obviously taken a back seat here. I feel terrible about it. I haven't even read up on all of you. It's horrible and I am sorry. Trying to find time to do so is the problem.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am off to work!

Vegas was a blast! I ate way too much food. The weather was absolutely amazing!

We stayed for 5 days, 4 nights. Here is where I plan on staying the next time I go.

Planet Hollywood was in the center of it all. It's right across the street from the Bellagio with MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay on one side and Caesar's Palace and the Venetian on the other.

I had an incredible time with my friends!
