Welcome Home Zach!
Saturday we held a get together at the river to welcome Zach back home from Iraq. Michelle, Brandy and I got together and made t-shirts, we had tons of food, and tons of fun. Here are some pictures of the fun.

We can’t all be heroes…someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.

I have my laptop back. THANK YOU JEFFERY! The only thing is one of the keys is not working. Can you guess which one? hee hee.. They are going to be mailing me a keyboar(). The letter that isn't working is the first letter of my son's name. It is a little tricky thinking of new verbage to use to express myself. Anyway, I have most of my programs on the new system. Just got to put SCAL on. PSE, Office, & my MP3 player info is all that is left. Once I have a free moment I will put the pics from the 4th & Zach's party on the blog. I hope everyone has a great tomorrow!

Do you remember ...
This song?

It was made for Desert Storm. I remember watching the video and making of it on t.v when I was a freshman in high school. My older brother was over there and I remember sending a copy of the tape for him and his buddies to listen to. I remeber driving down the runway in Fort Riley KS to see him come home. I was supposed to go to prom that weekend with a boy from a neighboring town. I cancelled. I had to go see my brother come home. Why am I posting this? Because I almost lost him recently, only it wasn't a war that almost took him away. He celebrated 90 days of sobriety on Tuesday. Congratulations, Ron. I love you big brother.

At what time in your life do you quit allowing people to hurt you? When do you realize you will never measure up to their standards and just go on with your life? When does it stop? I know it will stop as soon as I quit giving them the power to hurt me. SO.. I guess it stops now. You no longer have the power to hurt me. Now, or in the future. I am sorry you won't get to know me further, know what exceptional people my children are or will be(nor will you be able to judge them or my parenting any longer). I am sorry you feel the need to be judgemental and petty. I hope your life and your children's lives are happy.
