Life is Short...remembering Beckie

Today I am attending my favorite cousin's funeral. I know some of you reading this have watched my My Space page and had sent me notes of good wishes & prayers after I told you of her battle against cancer last April. I want to thank you all for your prayers, support and all of your kind words. Yes I read them and yes I was touched. I guess it didn't surprise me to read that so many of you had also someone close to you in this same boat. I hope and pray your loved ones are at home, safe and happy now. Do any of you have a relative that is as close or closer than a sister? Well that's how I felt about Beckie. I will miss her so very much! She was funny, smart, a smart ass and very loved.

Life can toss you so many curve balls can't it? The very same day that I was notified about Beckie's passing, I was up North house hunting with my daughter, I had put an offer on a great home at 2pm and it was accepted at 3pm! I was so excited!!! Then the call came....It was a very emotional day is all I can say.
My mother and son are meeting me at the funeral home at 10am. I guess I should get in the shower and get a move on. Life is the people in your life while you have them. You never know what tomorrow will bring. I love you Beckie. :(

In a hurry

Hi guys!

I know that you are wondering where I am. Well during the holidays I was up in northern CA with my daughter, grand kids and ex husband having a wonderful and special time. It snowed on Christmas Day I was so thrilled! I spent 17 days up in the woods in a tiny cabin and loved it, who knew! ;)

At one point Tim (remember he was my high school sweetheart, the whole quarterback/cheerleader storybook romance thing) couldn't help but ask me what the Bravo people would think about the "Housewife" from the OC being held up the mountains in 31 degree weather, with 3 large dogs and him. Let me tell you guys he is NOT a city boy. My life right now really feels like a storybook... And I will share more but - it's 5:52 AM and I need to get to work by 7:00. I think tonight I have free (it's been a busy week) so I'll fill you all in more.
