Road trip to NY

Saturday, May 07, 2011

No, not immediately, but in June. I wanted to go to NY to surprise my sister for her birthday but discovered that was the same as Bike Week in Laconia and I really wanted to go to meet a friend so I canceled the trip for June. Yesterday my niece asked me if she could come spend some time vegging at my house in the boonies so I said sure, we'll work something out. Then today my DD sent me an e-mail telling me she got her vacation days for June so she could go to NY with me. Ok so I put the wheels in motion to make the trip. Talked to my niece about the date and told her not to tell her mother or my parents but be ready to go first thing Thursday morning June 16, she said ok, did NOT tell her I was bringing DD too. Then talked to DD and told her the plan and told her it was going to be a surprise. Niece and DD are in their "early 30's". Then I told them that we would be spending a day at bike week and they both are excited.
Now if I can get my son to let me borrow my 5 year old grandson for a few days, that would be fun.

I love planning my summer ahead of time!

16 more days and I will be in the USA!

Thursday, May 05, 2011

She is from Haltom City, TX.
If you can spare a prayer, positive thought or information, it would be greatly appreciated.

My younger sister Rebecca from Haltom City, TX, has gone missing since Sunday, May 1, 2011. She was last heard from on Saturday night, April 30th. She has worked the same job for the past 12+ years and did not show up for her Sunday and Monday shift. Police made entry into her apartment and she was not there. She has been put on the Missing Persons list and flyers are being posted in her neighborhood. She is a person of routine and taking off somewhere is not at all like her.

She is 51 years old, 5'-6" tall, about 160#. Long hair that has been dyed brown with a hint of red, otherwise gray.

She was last seen at the 7-11 convenience store on Rue Snow Drive in Watauga, TX, on Saturday night, April 30, 2011. She was riding her bicycle as she did daily.

She liked to ride the bike trails in North Richland Hills, TX

Any information about her should be reported to Haltom City, ive Texas Detective J. Trevino. Phone 817-222-7035.

Don't know what to think

Monday, May 02, 2011

My personal opinion is that it's not over.
21 more days and I will be out of the Middle East. Not sure if I am more scared to be in the USA or be here.
We are NOT US Military or ARAMCO (Oil)

    You're right--it's not over. It won't be over til it's over, and in the midst of celebration, I'm on my knees praying for the world. Whether you pray or not, you can't live your life in fear. Just keep on stepping, one day at a time. But I'll be praying for you.
