May Your Days Be Filled With Touchdowns

Feels good to finally have some creating time. This is a birthday card I made for my neighbor. The inside sentiment reads, "May Your Days Be Filled With Touchdowns!", which is appropriate since he is a Buckeye too.

Doing a lot of nervous eating, so I'll tell you that the sidebar is now just a distant memory. Grr.

Been very busy with football season. See my Flickr stream for my Texas trip. There are some scoreboard shots too.

Thanks for visiting!

Ohio State Football ATC

Ohio State Football ATC

Just a quick post to let you all know I am still around. Just really, really busy with being a football fan, and work is starting to get busy again. Oh well, the summer of nothing had to end.

This is an ATC I made for a Fall Sports swap on PCMB. We were to make ATCs that featured our favorite fall sport and/or team. I'm pretty happy with the sparkling gray paper on this one. Looks like a helmet.

5 Years Ago

Though I have many things to share right now, as I've been rather busy, I am chosing not to do a typical post today. The things I write about in this blog are pretty insignificant and trivial in the whole scheme of things, and I want to show absolutely no disrespect.

Today is September 11. Like everyone, I remember what I was doing when I heard the news five years ago. I could share that, though what I really remember was going to bed that night, though not really sleeping much if any, thinking that I had lived a good 31 years of not being afraid and was very thankful for them. I knew my life would never be the same after that day. What was incomprehensible a mere 24 hours prior was now a reality.

I truly dread September 11 every year now, because it brings up the memories to the forefront of my mind. Not that I forget on the other days of the year, but when it is September 11, I mourn the lives lost, and the innocence that we all lost.

And today, on September 11, 2006 like I have on September 11, 2002, September 11, 2003, September 11, 2004, and September 11, 2005, I thank God another attack hasn't happened.
