I have officially moved and will no longer be updating or using this blog. Come check out my new digs! They're pretty dang sweet. Oh, yeah, if you want to visit, please leave me a comment, with an e-mail address, or some way to contact you. I'm not just giving out the link, because I'm hoping to loose some people in this move. Catch ya on the flip side!

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 Legacy.com 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!

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?
