I Blame Facebook.

Yes, I blame my lack of postage on the addiction that is facebook. That, and I'm pretty sure that no one checks this thing anymore anyways...once again, because of facebook...Lots of things have happened in...five months...wow. That's pretty bad.

Let's see...in the last five months, Russ and I have had the pleasure of watching friends get married, (thanks for inviting us, Arden + Erika, Mary + Patrick, Alvin + Fiona), and this makes me realize that we've entered into that phase of our lives...everyone is transitioning from the college phase into the falling-in-love-and-getting-married phase. It all seem so "grown-up"...

Another, much sadder event in my life has been the passing of my Grandma on my dad's side. It's strange, because I wasn't as close to her as I am with my mom's parents, because she lived in Washington, and we only saw her once a year. She was a very strong lady though. That I know for sure. I mean, she was diagnosed with brain/spinal cancer and given a few months to live...6 years ago. Last February, the doctors only gave her a few weeks to live. On October 5th, they said she wouldn't survive the weekend. She passed away in her sleep at 6am Thanksgiving Monday. In a way, I'm just glad she is no longer in pain, and take comfort in the great memories that I do have of her.

I suppose that this would be where I say something profound about the phases of life...but I just don't have it in me today...so I shall leave it at that.

Finally a freaking post! I will have you know that I was one of those lurkers that checked to see if you posted anything at LEAST a couple times a week!

Yes... I am noticing that we are definitely in a different stage of life now. Wow.... I've known you for five years. I'm definitely not the intercultural, "sell half a muffin", wierdo kid I was.

Sorry to hear about your Grandma. Was anyone able to make the funeral?

No, I'd have to say you really aren't that strange "sell half a muffin" kid anymore :P Hehehe.

My dad was able to go to the funeral, which was most important, so that was good. My mom would have gone as well, but it was too expensive for both of them to fly...but at least my dad was able to go.
