2003 San Diego Fires


Here's pictures from the fires that I've been promising for years now. I just got them developed today. Pictures don't really give that week justice. Anyway, if you'll notice the white stuff on the ground, that's ash and these are pictures from the housing we used to live in. Posted by Picasa

This just gives you an idea of how dark the sky was. This was taken during the day and I didn't alter it in any way. That's how the sky really looked. Posted by Picasa

We got a little taste of it this Sunday. We decided to get up early and go to New Hampshire, Manchester to be exact. It was really nice to get away if only for a little while. Manchester is the largest city in northern New England so it was like being somewhere "normal" for a change. We drove around and did some shopping. We also had our first wood fired pizza and if you haven't had one, you're really missing out. It was the best pizza ever. We also went to this gourmet cooking store and bought these soup mixes that are wonderful. Yum, yum.

Other than that, things are pretty much normal around here. It's still really cold, but it's cold almost everywhere right now. We don't have any snow though and that's nice. Ohio has more snow than we do, heheh.

The girls are the same. They annoy the snot out of me, but that's normal. C doing fine also. His job never changes. My school is coming right along. I had midterms and aced the hell out of them. The class averages were pitiful but I got high 90's on all three. Woohoo for me! So, there ya go for now.

Do sincere apologies exist anymore? From my experience, most apologies are given to get the person saying them out of trouble or to make the original problem "go away". Or maybe they say, "I'm sorry" because they said or did something that made them feel like an idiot and that's the fastest way to dig their way out of a hole. Do people say that they're sorry because they actually mean it? Because they feel shame or actual contriteness? Because they feel bad for hurting someone's feelings? Because they feel honest regret? I'm a realist and realistically, I'd guess that 98% of apologies given are for the first reasons I listed and not because they feel a "keen regret". And, along with being a realist, I'm also a fairly honest person and will say that I don't remember the last time I apologized for something wrong that I did or said and meant it. People just don't do that anymore. I think most apologies are selfish. People say them to make themselves feel better, not the person that they wronged. Maybe we should start trying an honest approach and instead of saying, "I'm sorry" say, "Well, I surely said something stupid now didn't I?" and leave it at that. Frankly, I'm tired of empty apologies; saying them and hearing them. People should try saying what they mean and not what they think other people expect them to say.

I know that I can say that this post isn't the result of anything that's happened and that it's not directed at anyone specific, but who would believe me? Along with insincere apologies, everyone has an ulterior motive, lol. This was actually just a thought that I had while I was typing up a paper.

I Have Been Angry = No Updates

I'm still not over it (anyone who knows me knows I hold a grudge) but I'm here anyway.

So, what's been going on for the past few days? The girls had the week off of school and don't go back until Wednesday. 11 days total for Winter Break. It's been interesting to say the least. I didn't realize how much I am able to get done while they're at school until they were home all week long.

Yesterday, C was on the local radio station promoting the annual softball game that Barre has. All the local businesses compete against each other over the weekend while raising money for a few area kids. Last year they raised over $19,000 and this year they're hoping for $22,000. The Marines team up with the radio station. The radio station thing was funny though cuz they were just talking smack, making stuff up, and joking around. C said he worried the whole time about swearing on the radio, lol, but he didn't.

I've been out of my mind with school work. I have midterms next week and with the girls home, haven't really been able to get prepared for them. I've had dreams the last two nights about trying to study. I started reading, taking notes, and writing my paper at 10 am yesterday morning and didn't get finished until 11:30 pm. Long day for me.

We're waiting for a huge snowstorm to hit. They're saying we should get 6-14 inches of snow by tonight. It just figures that all winter long it hasn't really felt like winter here and then as soon as March hits and spring is right around the corner, winter finally arrives in Vermont.
