This year so far has been so stressful, with my dad being sick and then taking a fairly heavy coarse load at college. And I swear this past week has taken years off my life. I leave back for college today and the next week will be loaded with school work. Things should be getting easier from here. But they aren't. I'm starting to feel that I won't truly get to breathe until the beginning of May, when the semester ends and I can go home for the summer. These next two months are going to be so rough between trying to keep my head above water at school and cope with the loss of my daddy, who I loved so much. When my grandmother passed away August of 2010, it had the opposite effect that I would have expected, with me getting posts up like mad. In no way, shape, or form do I see that as going to be the case this go round. I'm going to try and get posts up on occasion so my blog doesn't go totally dead but I can't promise much more. Please bear with me folks. I love you guys so much.

Both these photos are old. The first being from 2006, the second from 2008. You never realize how long it has been since you had your picture taken with someone you love until it is too late. That said, I like that both the pictures were taken in his element. My dad was a damn good pilot and he loved his job. I got a message on Facebook from an old co worker of his who'd heard about his death telling me he was one of the best pilots they'd ever had. And coincidentally, I'm in my Relay for Life committee shirt in the second photo.
