Oops, one more thing!!

I'll be updating pictures, blog rolls and all that other fun stuff in the next week or so as I get more time. One thing I didn't forget is how time consuming blogging can be. I've made it a goal to post only twice a week unless something majorly exciting happens. The older Kathryn gets, the more I have to take care of, the more precious my time becomes.

I'm back!!

I haven't blogged forever!! I had moved to wordpress and had my own site and that whole thing going on, but I'm not very bloggy literate and can't figure out how to get back into it. I'm going to take up my blogger account again instead. I don't know exactly where to start, so I guess there's no better time than the present. Last night John, myself, our friends Katie and Tim, SIL Melissa and BIL Travis all went to see Poison in concert. I've never really been to a rock concert, so this was a totally new experience for me. It was so much fun!!! I'll post some pictures soon, but can I just say that Bret Michaels for being an old dude is still pretty smokin' hot. On a much sadder note I found out today that a co-workers son in law passed away from cancer. My heart really goes out to this family. Brian has left his wife of 16 years and their 4 year old daughter. At this moment the only consilation for Becky is that he is no longer in pain. We are waiting for the funeral date to be announced. Today was quite sobering and reminded me once again how fragile life is. Thoughts and prayers go out to all that knew Brian.

Just in Case you Missed it

I'm loving wordpress, it's such a better fit for my blogging stuff. I miss my old template though, because I really love the header on this one. Anyway you can visit my new home here.

Catch ya on the flip side!

2,996 a Tribute to Peter A. Siracuse

I've struggled for weeks about what I would write on this day. I've struggled trying to sort through my feelings and thoughts. It is difficult to express how I feel when reflecting on the events of this tragic day 5 years ago. I know that my struggle with a simple post is nothing compared to what Peters family went through when he was killed on September 11, 2001. Peter A. Siracuse 29, was in/at the world trade center on September 11, 2001. He had a wife Alana and a son Ryan Joseph. My greatest wish is that his family will find peace and hope in this world without their loved one. I pray for the continued remembrance of this day. May we all take a moment to reflect and never forget. God bless Peters family, friends and all that were touched by his life and vivacious way of living. I was particularly touched by this note I found from Peters brother. Not knowing Peter myself I wanted to share words from someone that did. Dear Pete, It has been two year since that tragic day in which you left us here to go to a better place. There is never a day that goes by that I do not think of you. It could be a song on the radio or a little kid on a bike that brings me so many happy thoughts of our childhood together. I brought Mom and Alana to your resting place at the foot of Tower One on 9/11 and we prayed for the day when we all could be together again. I know that you are watching over Ryan as we are. He will come to know you through the many stories and photos that we hold close to our hearts. I Love you and miss you and look forward to a time when we can play a round on the ultimate course with THE GUY. You will live forever within each of us. Love Your Brother, George Expert from 9/11 site Information gathered from and the Peter A. Siracuse foundation. For all other participants, please visit 2,996 .

Okay, I know I've been gone almost all week, but it's been for a good reason. I got my domain all set up. However I'm trying to keep it a tad more private than before. I've been having a few problems and have decided that I don't want family reading it any longer, (except for you sis.) There is a lot that I haven't written about, because I don't want to offend anyone. While I can think and write what I want, it's sure easier to avoid the drama. I'll be making the move official after Monday's tribute post.

Feels like a Monday, looks like a Monday, smells like a Monday. Must be a Monday! The fair was really fun. We ate so much food. Terriaky chicken, curly fries, hamburgers, tiger ears, indian tacos, corn on the cob, cinnamon rolls, cotton candy. No funnel cake though, there just wasn't any more room in my gut! BTW - I did not eat all of these things all at once, this is the list for everyone! I think we should have split it into two days, so we could have two days to eat. There is just too much good food for one day! I didn't take any photos. I just couldn't find anything worth taking a picture of. Actually I found LOTS of interesting things to take pictures of, but I was too afraid of being attacked if I did. The fair really brings out all the freaks!

Fair Time

We are going to the county fair tomorrow with John's family. Should be fun, his parents are paying for EVERYTHING which I can't complain about. Every year his family goes to the fair together. We eat WAY too much food, ride too many rides, stay out ALL day and have tons of fun! I'll take my camera and post some pictures on Monday maybe. Looking forward to the three day weekend. Have plans on Monday for some bike trails and a picnic. My blog move can't come fast enough, now if I could just get enough money together I would be set. Donations anyone?

Two Things

I need all you blogging buddies out there to do two things for me. The first is to check out this post from Much More Than a Mom. She is selling T-shirts to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Not only is she raising money, but she is also matching the donations dollar for dollar. I don't know a single person that hasn't been affected by cancer. We all know someone who's had it, or maybe had it ourselves. They are always working to find new methods and ways of treatment, but that is expensive and it seems there is never enough money. Go check it out and donate a dollar or two if you can. Also spread the word. The more people that know, the more can contribute.
Secondly, go visit Moodswing Creations. If you are in the need of a blog design, Thursday Thirteen headers, linkware, custom buttons or banners, this is the place. Not only does Denise do custom templates and design work, she also has an awesome blog. So go check out her design stuff and blog. You'll be glad you did! Fairly recently she updated her blog template and I just love it. She also has some great stuff in her portfolio, so make sure you browse through it all.
~~ While I'm sending you places, you might as well check out my tenant. She's only here for a few more days. Find out why she's been so busy!
