    I have been missing in action from the lounge for a while and thought I would tell you guys a major change in my life so far.

    You guys are like my second family, so you guys have to know what's going on.

    First off, my mom started dating again about 6 months ago now (its been just over 2 years since my dad passed), just looking online and going out for dinner and small stuff with guys she met. Then about 2 or 3 or so months ago she met this guy from Creston (An hour from Cranbrook, where I reside) Ever since they have been dating and whatever they do. They seem really serious. His kids are really great, and he has a camp site at a local lake with a trailer we share. He is always over here, or my mom is always at his place. My mom is really happy ever since, so I am okay with it. It is a bit weird, but I'm fine with it. I'm happy for them, and he is really nice and cool.

    NExt,

    On April 25th it was the 2 year marker of my dad passing away. We are looking for a plaque and marker for some of his ashes to put to the Cranbrook cemetary. We are doing this so there is a physical place to come back and think or remember or visit I guess. Just because right now we have his ashes in boxes, or spread around places he enjoyed.

    Anyways that is about it for now. Thanks for listening.

    Its good to hear that you are supportive for your mom. I havent been here long enough to know your story, but Im sorry for your family and your loss. He'll never be forgotten. Good luck with everything and I wish you well.

    Thanks guys. It's definitly different with my mom having a new man in her life, but it's also really nice.

    Storm trooper, I could make a plaque to go to the cemetary but I don't have a clue how to make one, and what to make itout of, engraving, etc. would be a lot more than I can handle right now. I made the boxes which his ashes reside in though...

    Thanks guys, I'm always thinking about you guys and wish I could be in better touch. I am improving my phone-talking skills so maybe I will give some of you guys a ring one time.

    How is your sister taking the new man in mom's life? Hopefully she hasn't tried to mess thing up. Take care.

    She says she likes him and doesn't think he is taking my mom away from us. But with that girl, it's hard to tell if shes telling the truth or not...
