RIP Mr Beeks

I found out yesterday that my friend and supervisor at work passed away. He was a great supervisor and an even better person. I owe everything that I did at that job to him. He was willing to get me the help that I needed in the beginning and when I came into my own there, he was able to make sure that I was able to pass my knowledge along to other n00bs. My thoughts go out to his widow and I hope that somehow she reads this and knows that her husband touched many lives. Will was an embodiment of living life and not taking anything for granted. While most people never see their bosses in a social setting other than work, he was willing to let people show that he was just one of the regular guys. He never seemed to think that he was better than anyone else and that rubbed off on a lot of people. A friend put it best when he said, "From eating pizza and playing the Wii in team meetings, to helping him paint his house it has been fun! You will always be remembered as one of the best!"
While I never actually helped paint his house, I do remember the housewarming party and getting to chill with him, his wife, and a bunch of the guys from work. It was a lot of fun and one of the best times that I had this past year.
I hope that wherever his is, he is at peace and able to breathe freely.

RIP Will Beeks, you are loved and missed.

Yay for bloggy goodness!

I just want to say that I think it is awesome to have a place to voice my thoughts and think that other people read them. So to my readers, I say thanks! Now with that off my chest, on to other things.

My mother found out that I am pregnant. I had not planned on telling her yet but she friended me on Facebook and I had mentioned it on there and she found out. Fortunately, she is not mad at me for it. I had honestly planned on telling her in about a month or so, so I think she forgave me. 

I have been busy with the photography project at Envisage 2009. I am loving this project and will admit to a certain degree of egotism knowing that other people are out there checking out my pictures and getting a glimpse into the wonderful world of SororRavn!

In the world of kids, my daughters have been doing a fundraiser for school and I gotta hand it to my friends, they really came through for them! Between the two of them, we have sold almost 20 items, not counting on what I intend to purchase.

This week saw me getting my Halloween decorations up. It is amazing what you can get at the Dollar Tree. I spent about $10 - $15 on the decorations and it is looks amazing, if I do say so myself. ^_^ 

Speaking of the holidays, I am making plans now for a trip back to Texas for the holidays. I am really hoping that i will be able to make it since this will be the first major holiday that the girls have been back home!

Signing off now,

*smooches* Ravn!
