R.I.P Lola

Well the major event of this week was a very sad one. My 90 year old grandmother died. She was almost 91... in March. She came to America when I was about 4 or 5 to help my mom out since she was a single mom. My Lola (Filipino for Grandmother), went back and forth to Ca & Az , where my cousins are. She also went back to the Philippines often. She went back to the Philippines a couple years ago to, in her words, "die". She was feeling older and weaker and wanted to be back home. She was still very strong but I think since she stopped doing things like housework, cleaning and cooking and walking, her body got weaker.
We went to the Philippines last March to celebrate her 90th birthday. I could tell she was a lot weaker then I remembered. When we left I hoped it wouldn't be the last time I saw her, but deep down I think I knew it was.
This is the 1st close person in my life to die. It's very hard to imagine she's no longer here. I will miss her terrible. My Mom is in the Philippines right now. I wish I could have gone but it's too expensive and I can't take Kailee and I can't leave Kailee.
Well I'm just rambling on... and it's just making me sad. I will write another blog entry next time which will be on a happier note....

R.I.P. Lola... I will never forget you

Flip Video

Bought a Flip Video today looks like this:

Thought it was a smart buy, only $119 at Costco. Since we have Kailee we know we're going to want to capture not only photo memories but video as well. It's really simple to use and I'm loving it! I've gone a little crazy today taking all this video. Lols

well here's a video I took w/ it today:
