Back to work

Yes, I'm back in town and back to work now, yesterday was my first day. Brenda left me some cute notes and messages, I won't see her until sometime next week because she takes some time off right now. She deserves a break after covering for me and doing my job for a long time. She did a great job and I miss her. Today is the last day of the month and I have do my month end reconciliation report, I'm a bet busy but not that bad. Actually, it feels good being back here in my office (cage). I have bunch of pictures that I want and need to post here, but I just don't have the time to do it right now. It's sad though that I'm not living up to my blog "My DAILY life with photographs". Once I'm back to my normal routine, then I can do that.

Port Orchard, WA

Joel and I visit the place where he grew up. 
This is the house that his father built in 1957. Nothing changed except they cut down the big trees in the yard. It's always a nice feeling to see the place where you grew up in and see how the neighborhood changed.   
This is where he went to school. We didn't get to go see the high school, he said they tore down the original buildings and built a new one.

Trip to Bremerton, WA

It was rainy and cloudy day but it was a good trip to Bremerton. We went there to see the property that Joel inherit from his Mother. He's planning to put it up on the market. 
On our way to Bremerton, we drove to Port Keystone and rode a ferry to Port Townsend. It was a nice 30 minute ferry ride .  On our way home from Bremerton we drove through Tacoma/Seattle.

Tess Visit

I flew in to Fairbanks on June 29th to get the month end reconciliation report done for the school district. Everything went well, Brenda was doing a great job doing my work, she rocks! 
 
 My friend Tess came up to Fairbanks from Kentucky. Unfortunately, when she arrived there I wasn't there and when I got there, she wasn't there also, she and my other friends made a trip to Anchorage. Fortunately, they got back to Fairbanks 15 minutes just before I boarded the plane and I got to see her.

Dr. Jeanette Barlean

My mother-in-law passed away July 04, 09 @ 12:59 p.m. Joel and I were at her side comforting her and holding her hand through her last breath. It was an unexplainable feelings and quite an experience. We were glad that we had the chance to spend time with her on her last few days. It is sad that she's gone but are glad that she's not in pain anymore. We know for sure though that she was happy and content when she left. We are not going to have a formal service for her because she didn't want us to and it was stated on her last will and testament.
I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support.
