remember the old white van how it was so big and bulky and when george would drive and not stop until the last minute in traffic and it would always scare the living daylights out of whoever was in the front seat at the time? well thats how becky drives her moms bigger more bulkier van and it scares me even more but i have to laugh because it reminds me of our old van in a way

spring time

now that its spring time we are in cleaning mode the rez goes and gets these big dumpsters and keeps them for a few weeks and anyone can take what garbage or whatever to them so its like the ultimate spring cleaning surprisingly they get emptied everyday thats how much stuff people have to get rid of every spring time i think its crazy

they go in 3s

so i keep getting told here on the rez that as soon as a loved one passes away 2 more will follow because they go in 3s ive taken it upon myself to say that these past 2 months are the worst 2 ever first gma locke then gma irene and now monique im aware that they are happier and in a better place now but it takes its toll on a person to grieve that much...

holding on

well shes still holding on but by a very thin piece of string i have been at the house with the rest of the family since last night people are starting to bring food and we have a constant fire going outside so everyone can come and go or just stick around if the choose to hospice came and said she could go from anywhere to an hour or a few days from now but we think shes trying to hold on so that she can see one of her granddaughters who is flying in to come and see her its so hard because she was like a grandma here for me even though i have my own so its kinda rough having lost one to lose another....

new found time

now that i dont have that game to play i suddenly found that i have all this time in the world and its driving me nuts so im going to give carving a shot i have a few things in mind that id like to try maybe it will become a great hobby

what a surprise!

i told becky that i was going to go back to church and she said that she had a dress that she could wear...i hate to assume but does anyone think that maybe this means she is willing to learn or am i just hoping and shes just doing it because its something that she feels i want her to do

i guess

i guess having lots of family is better but nobody really is near me where i can take a short 10 -15 min drive instead its a kinda sorta long 50 min trip or in cori and siri's case 15 hrs maybe more from my drive I'm just exhausted of being stuck around a 14 and 10 yr old that refuses on doing anything by that i mean they would rather lay around watch TV or play wii all day regardless of the weather is like or what outside oppertunities are presented to them


so i play this game that i was very good at and some random person decided to hack into my account and took everything that i worked so very hard to get why must people do this im never going to play it again

the powwow

so another success of the 25th annual stan purser memorial powwow i worked from about 930am to midnight from the prep to the clean up and am still totally exhausted i picked up a whole new sense of leadership as the purser clan had to attend to their mother who is more or less like grandma locke well at the point where she was i prepared the fires for both the clam and salmon bake they had to go for about 3 hours then cooked the salmon and others put the oysters clam and crab together i helped crack the seafood shell open to serve the masses and at about 730 pm took over the overall powwow with the help of beckys sister to make sure that it went smoothly until about 1030pm i was so busy that i completely lost track of time and unfortunately wasnt able to make it to grandma lockes memorial but it will always be there and ill be able to visit anytime
