Has society today has lost all concept of respect and gratitude. I was completely disgusted today as I made a deliver to a large grocery warehouse. Today being rememberance day you think people would have to common courtesy to take the moment at 11:00 to stop working or doing whatever they are doing and pause to remember the sacrifice that was made by so many men and women for our freedom. In this particular warehouse they had many radio's located all over the place, tuned to the same station. When the station requested a moment of silence only 3 out of the 25-30 people in my view actually stopped. I was even more disgusted when a manager walked over to one of those 3 employees and told him to get back to work, and stop standing around. Is this what our society has come to, that no longer can we take a 1 or 2 minute break from our day to reflect on, and be grateful for those who went through so much for us. You would think that a warehouse like that with more 200 employees in the building would make an announcement and ask the employees to pause. It us unthinkable that there is so litte respect in our society......

    I lost some weight, not by choice though

    Okay truth be told it couldn't have been more than a couple of ounces, if it was even that. On Wednesday I went to the emergency department at the hospital with pretty bad pain in my stomach area, especially on the right side. It started in the morning, but got worse, and worse. So despite my heroic efforts to try and ignore the pain, I went to the hospital. After much poking and proding by both doctors and nurses, they took some blood from me, and it came back that I needed my appendix out. For many of you this might not seem like such a big deal, but you have to understnad for me this was huge. I have never had surgery before, for that matter, I haven't even had a broken bone. So needless to say this was a little nerve racking for me. Anyways, I called my parents, and Marleah to let them know the news. Both my parents and Marleah headed down to the hospital to visit before I went in for surgery, but neither made it in time. So Marleah was there when I woke back up, and needless to say , I was quite groggy. So I managed to recover much quicker than they all thought I would, in fact I was up and walking around the night of the surgery, the nurses were quite surprised to say the least and I was released about 12 hours after the surgery started. I am once again reminded of just why hospital food is so horrible, IT HAS NO TASTE. Anyways, I am well on the road to recovery now, a little tender but not bad at all.

    Time for a break!

    Finally, yet another busy week is over.  I know some of you may be going wait, it's only Thursday, but as of tommorow morning I am leaving to go camping till the 2nd of August.  It is going to be so nice just to get away for a while, to slow down, reflect on the last few months, and just take some time away for me.  This coming weekend has me a little nervous as I am going to be meeting all of Marleah's extended family.  I know that to most people this is no big deal, but I have never meet them, and we are engaged already when I am meeting them.  It sort of seems a little backwards, but oh well here goes nothing.  Anyways, I'll let you all know the details of camping when we get back.

    Have you ever had one of those periods where you were mad at yourself for things that you have done that you shouldn't have, or things that you haven't done that you should have. I am having one of those moments myself right now, and it really sucks. I would share the details, but I would rather not. I continually find myself in situations that I should be able to control, and make the right desicion in the moment, but am constantly finding myself unable to do so. It has even gotten to the point where I somehow manage to convince myself that it is okay even though I realize that it isn't. I wish that I could just understand why I am doing this and what I can do to stop it. If I can't then I am going to end up really hurting myself, and others. I think it is a lack of self control to a certian extent, yet at the same time, don't know how to get that control back. GRRRRRR. I wish it were easier. Sorry, I just had to vent for a bit.

    Ahh to Relax

    After a very busy week, I am glad to say that I got a chance to escape it this past weekend. I went camping at the Pinery. It was so nice to be able to get awya from work, and various other activities that keep a person busy day to day. Since me and Marleah got engaged, it has been really hectic. I must say it is nice to not have an agenda, and just to be able to lay on the beach and relax. The lay on the beach and relax part I did pay for however. I missed applying sunscreen to select area's namely feet and shoulders. So needless to say all it was a little sore the next morning, but a fair trade none the less.

    One of those days!

    Have you ever just had one of those days, where nothing seems to go right, well today was like that for me. I'll spare you all the boring details, and just share with you one highlight in particular. So this afternoon, at home, after accomplishing some paperwork and such, I go outside to find that the front driver's tire on my car has gone flat. Being 6:15, there are not many options for me at this point, so I take a trip with our van down to the gas station, and pick up a can of "Fix a Flat", a nifty little product that is supposed to fix the tire. So I put this stuff in the tire, and low and behold it appears to be working. Once the can is empty you have to take the car for a drive to build up the heat in the tire. I am driving around the block, and am just around the corner, when, I feel the car slowly starting to lower on the one side. I immediately turn around and head back home. The tire that was originally flat is now completely flat as I am a few driveways from my house. Then from the back of the car I hear a bang, followed by a hissing sound. I park the car in front of the house and get out. Low and behold, now the back tire on the same side is flat too. Needless to say I dare not more the car till I get them fixed, and even then, with the luck I am having the other two will do the same. It's just been one of those days.
