Welcome to my blog and website, I hope you find your visit interesting.

The word is a force you cannot see, but you can see the manifestation of that force, the expression of the word, which is your own life.

Well, I've made it through the roughest bit so far since Cheryl's death - dealing with all the legal stuff. I have been surprised by the amount of money one has to pay out before ever getting a penny from the life insurance - almost 22 grand! I was told the credit card companies will 'forgive' the debt on the cards of the deceased if you send them a copy of the death certificate, but alas, that is not true. Instead of simply sending me a letter telling me to pay the credit card debt, they sent them to collection agencies. So those are paid off. But what a bunch of blood-thirsty money-hungry @#$@ they are! Well, otherwise, everything is taken care of or in the process of being finished up, thankfully.

I start back in school tomorrow. That'll be nice - getting back on a 'regular' schedule. I have just this semester to finish to get me Fitness Professional certificate, then it's the national certs - ACSM and ACE. I'm looking forward to school, seems odd to say such a thing.
