This weekend I put a very emotional strain on me and my family. My grandma Anna Kroger passed away at the age of 74 and my sister moved to Wyoming to start college. From Wednesday on was a blur. The funeral was on Saturday and we moved my sister in (11 hours from home) on Sunday.
I don’t know how my mom and dad did it. Someday I know I’ll have to go through the same thing (hopefully not any time soon,) but I don’t know that I’ll be able to handle it like they did. The loss of my grandma was really hard on my dad and moving my sister was just as tough on my mom. I found myself in a support role rather than a suffering role.
Support is nice, but when i was at the funeral I had Kelsey (my Fiancee) sitting next to me making sure that if I needed anything she was there to be my support. This is why I’m marrying her not someone else 🙂
Overall it was a very tough weekend that I hope never happens again, but on the bright side my mom took a bunch of pictures of Terri’s dorm.
Did you know that National Rum Day is a measly six days after my birthday? I did not! But there will be minimal celebrating tonight for I have a lot of work to do on Kelsey and My Save the Dates. So far we’ve been rolling right along (with the exceptions of a weeks worth of miscommunications). If I know you well, expect an invite, if not, get to know me 🙂
So as many of you may already know, on Tuesday I turned 21. What a night that was. I started the night out by going to supper with Kelsey and her roommates. We went to Granite City where I ordered my first ever alcoholic drink (in the US). I had a Southern Comfort Hurricane with my meal. That was one of the better hurricane’s I’d ever had. However that was the only drink I had with supper because it was $8.50… Holy cow! After supper we went to Rookies where they had $5 pitchers. Bad News… Then we decided that we had enough to drink there and that it was time to move. I wanted to go downtown from the beginning, so we went to Stogeez Copper Lounge. That was dead! I figured a few more people would be out on a Tuesday night. But then I got news that my best friend was at Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse, and he wanted me to come. So we met him there and I doubled my drinks in an hour and then proceeded to call it a night. I signed my name every time I had a drink and wrote down what it was. Everyone got a chuckle out of it when they couldn’t read the last ten or so. 🙂
Sorry I haven’t uploaded any more pictures, but since photography class got over I have been taking a break from photography. I’ll post more pictures when I take them.
I’ve been swamped since my last photo upload, and haven’t had any time to upload more. I’ve got about 4 or 5 more successfully photoshopped. They’ll be up by the end of the week (I PROMISE). But more importantly, I turn 21 in one week. That’s when I’m going to start work on my new blog entitled The Rum Taster. You can speculate on what this may be about, but you wont officially find out until I’m officially old enough to participate with the blog. 🙂 I’ll keep the pictures rolling as usual, but I need to finish my photography class (hopefully with an A+) first.
