If you are a regular reader of my blog, you probably noticed that I have been pretty absent for the past week. I am sad to say that my mom passed away last week after a 3 year battle with melanoma. She is finally free of cancer and suffers no more. I was in Florida for the week with my family. I now move on with my life with my mother in my heart. Remember that each day is a gift, because it truly is. You never know what tomorrow will bring. Like I always say, take the time to smell the roses. Life is short, so be kind to others and do what you love!

If anybody would like to donate to the AIM at Melanoma organization in memory of my mom, Ellen Arker, I am including the address to do so below. I also participate in a walk each year during the month of May if you would like to donate then. That information will follow at a later date.
As you can probably imagine, I accomplished pretty much nothing last week as far as doing things for myself. I was completely focused on my dad and my family. I did what needed to be done. Therefore I’m going to use mostly the same goals that I set for myself last week as my goals for this week.
6. Start to catch up on my own life. For the past few months I lived in limbo. I haven’t been keeping up with my friends, blogs, and videos.
7. Work on that crazy closet of mine… Now that it has cooled off I need to do a bit more rearranging as well as purging. LOL!
