    Sad Times

    Yesterday, my uncle, who was in his 50's, unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack. He was raising my two cousins, one in 8th grade and one in 11th grade, on his own after my aunt died of cancer several years ago. It's so unfair! He was a wonderful person and father, and was planning to retire after this school year...he was an English teacher. It's just quite a shock, and I don't think I've even comprehended his being gone.....what a loss....he was one of the most wonderful people I ever met in my life......and it's just not fair!

    Quotable Sunday, 2/15/09

    It's Quotable Sunday! In honor of Valentine's Day which of course, was celebrated yesterday, I am posting some spirit lifting, hopefully heart twinkling LOVE quotes! Want to join in? It's fun and easy! You can post quotes about whatever you want! Share them!
    Write a post on your blog including one or more of your favorite quotes...any kind of quotes you want to post!
    Head over to A Daily Dose of Toni and sign Mr. Linky so everyone can stop by and check out your quotes, and you check out the others! Love......a roller coaster of emotions and feelings, with highs that are high and lows that are low...but if you ask me...I still say that true love endures all :)

    One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love. Sophocles

    To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. David Viscott

    We are most alive when we are in love. John Updike

    It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world. Emmet Fox

    What do you think? My favorite is the David Viscott quote, it always makes me smile :)

    Mama Needs a New Printer!!!

    Here's a picture of my current printer.
    I know, I know, it's not that bad looking right?
    It should suffice, even for my teacher printing needs right?
    How did it break you might ask?
    Well, a certain 2 year old little darling thought it would be entertaining to throw his sippy cup on the ground until the little plastic insert thing came out....and then drip his juice into the printer!!! What fun!!!
    Why wasn't I watching him you might ask??
    Oh...I've got that happened when he was home with Daddy!!! Yes....imagine...Daddy letting a 2 year old get into things he shouldn't.......OK, you probably don't actually have to imagine that...I mean, we all know that husbands can't.................WAIT....I'll stop while I'm ahead..
    So why in the world am I showing you my broken printer and telling you my printer woes? Because I am trying to win a fabulous new Epson Artisian Printer at A Wrestling Addicted Mommy!! Need to win a fabulous new printer too? Then go check out the contest, read the instructions carefully....and enter of course!!
