A lot has happened in my life since my last posting. Yes, I've been crocheting and making jewelry. It has helped me get through this tough time in my life. On December 8, 2009, I lost my mother, Debra Aich. She was only 57 years old...
Losing my mom has been really hard, but I know that she would want me to carry on and make the most of every day that I have with my family and friends. That was how she lived her life. No matter what the situation. she always tried to make it fun.
I also turned 30 on March 31. I know that turning 30 can be hard for some people, but I didn't have that hard of a time with it. The only hard part about it was knowing that I was now entering my 30's without my mom. She wouldn't have wanted me to not celebrate it though so Gordon and I went to Tunica! I played her favorite slot machine in her honor, the "Triple Diamond Haywire" :) My great grandmother always said that your age was just a number, you are only as old as you feel. She lived to be 92 years old.
From now on, I'm going to try and make this blog as fun as I can. That's what my mom would want me to do. Actually, I don't even know if I told my mom that I started this blog! Guess she knows about it now :) She would want me to make it political since she was always sending me emails about things Obama has done or didn't do but claimed he did. One thing she was always convinced of was that he wasn't born in the United States and was always trying to track down his birth certificate! I'll let everyone know about what's going on with Kitty & I and also post my latest craft projects. Maybe even post a few jokes that I get forwarded to me from my mom's friends (I get some pretty funny ones sometimes!)
Check back soon for more postings!
