no scoot needed

Im a lucky guy!I went down to look at how the snowremoval went,the young lady accross the hall said what do you need,Ill go to the store for you!She did,what a nice lady :)!

soon

The walkway is still kinda icey so I called the office asked to put some salt down,she said they are in the process of doing that now.Maybe in bout 1 hr I can scoot to walgreens!

should I stay or should I go

I checked out the front of the bld and its better than it was but,I think Ill wait till afternoon to scoot to walgreens!

what to do now!

What to do now!If they cleared the snow out of the walkways here Im thinkin of taking a scoot to walgreens but,only if the walkways are super clear!

12.28.10

I have yet to hear from anyone about tomorrow!My niehbor asked me what I was gonna do on christmas,I said "no plans,havnt heard from my kids"she said"Im having dinna at my sisters.Do you want me to bring you a plate?"I said "okay".Im sure my children want to see thier dad thou!

12.5.10

Church was great!I said a silent prayer while I was waiting for the service to begin,I prayed "Jesus,I'm not the type of guy that can openly,in someones face spread the good news,so I do it quietly through my social networks and my blog by sharing all the great things you've done for me in my new life as well as my previous life.I think alot of people know we are close and they ask me to say a prayer for them!I just ask you to be with all my family and friends but,can you be espesially close to a facebook friend who really needs you right now!"
Im confident he heard my prayer
