Thank You

I wanted my last post to be one of appreciation and gratitude to all of you for the love, kindness, education, and caring you have shown me over the past 2 years.

It is not an overstatement to say I do not think I could have healed without all of you and I know it would not have been as fun.

I am writing this with tears streaming down my cheeks. I will miss this.

I have received an enormous amount of nudging to leave the blog up and so I will. I am overwhelmed at the emails I have been getting telling me how much my words have meant to so many. Thank you for making me feel special and valued.

I will also leave the AGirl email active, so please feel free to drop me a note anytime.

Again, with all sincerity…THANK YOU!

Final Update

I have received several requests to update my status, so here it goes.

My hubby and I finished EMT class and passed our state and national exams first time out. We precepted for 3 months. I am a released EMT and he is a released drier. We have been running as a team for the past month or so for our local rescue squad. We are learning a on and enjoying our time serving our community.

I went to the dermatologist yesterday and got the all clear on the skin cancer!!

Things are going unbelievably well here for everyone in the family. We have some very big plans for our future to which are coming along so well.

That’s about it. Except in 2 days I will closing down the blog and the FB. I have enjoyed it tremendously, but the time really is now. Many people have encouraged me to keep it up and I get emails daily asking me to come back. I have given it time, but honestly I do not enjoy it any more. I really don’t have anything of worth left to say, so this really is good bye(well in 7 days).

I hope things are going as well for all of you!!!

P.S. I reserve the right to come back if I ever find something to write about though.

Kilted To Kick Cancer

Ok, I realize that I have been on the very down-low for a while, so it is a bit tacky to pop on here to ask for help, but by now you know if there is a good cause out there, I am gonna support it.

My friend Micheal and his friends(some of which have become my fiends!) have been doing this extremely cool Kilted to Kick Cancer thing for a few years. Last year you all helped Micheal compete with the big boys last year in fundraising which was a hoot. Not to mention helped raise a deal of money to fight a disease we all despise.

It is that time again…

We have 5 kids, a grandbaby, a 15 year old who is mighty motivated and hardworking, so while going to high school we are also paying for her to attend college, we are saving for a new house, my firearms training, self defense training, paramedic school, and I think my husband might want new socks someday, so I get money is tight in an economy that is none to friendly to the working folks(kind of friendly to those that sit on their backside which isn’t any of you)but still I will give up a martini(ouch) or two to toss a few buck towards the good fight.

Never any pressure because I do not think giving what one does not want to give is good for anyone, but if you have the heart and a few extra bucks head on over and give to one of the boys(Men).
