The lord needed another nurse...

April 16th, 2017 (09:49 pm)

current mood: distressed
current song: the old rugged cross

07 Apr 17 My mother passed away
14 Apr 17 I held her funeral and spread her ashes into the waters of the nearby river by my hometown.

She was 61 years old, was a Nurse for over 38 years, and she loved me with all her heart. I wake each morning now with fear that I may not honor her memory appropriately. Even though family and friends tell me that I've done everything I could to do so.

I'm scared, depressed, and I do not know how to explain this to my loving and supportive wife. She is freaked out of her mind after watching me stoically attend to my mother's funeral while my mothers boyfriend completely broke down. She saw me break twice, encouraged me to do so. I just could not explain that there was so much to do in so little time, even now I have to complete paperwork to establish my mothers estate.

I also have a tough fight ahead as I must deal with my mothers abusive business partner. If I fail it threatens the home that my mothers boyfriend lives in and where I grew up. I intend to win, support the town that I grew up in. Though I feel that I may make enemies in a place where my friends will continue to live in but I will have a hard time coming back to keep in check. I don't know what the future will bring, I just need to get through the pain of losing my mother first.

Life Update!

March 29th, 2017 (08:45 pm)

current mood: accomplished
current song: Pinkzebra - Larger Than Life

Just a quick update, I did not post here but I recently completed my duties as a Commissioner to my city to study the cities form of government and recommend things that would make the city run a bit more efficiently. Long story short it took two years of my life to put two ballot issues regarding the form of government on the previous ballot but both were shot down by the voters. Good news was the city did start implementing a few of our recommendations and it seems people are very happy with it, more on that in the future if I think about it or I'm asked.

This month has also brought two changes in the fact I joined my county Search and Rescue group. Along those lines I also took my Technician's test for Amateur Radio last week and passed it. Today I received my license from the FCC. What makes this so cool is my CSaR group uses high power radios during their operations and with my FCC license I can use my personal radio without it being an emergency. I'm feeling pretty great right now!

Monty Oum 1981-2015. You will be missed

Monty Oum was a great animator that I had the pleasure of watching in the 90's and beginning of the 2000's. Oum fell into a coma during a simple medical procedure in January 2015, and died on February 1, 2015. He will be missed.
