Summer is Flying By

Hello everyone.  I know I promised a new post a few weeks back and I never did get around to it.  As I mentioned, my grandma had been terminally ill and I had moved in with her to take care of her for the remainder of her life.  On July 7th, 2010, she passed away at home surrounded by myself, my mother (her only daughter) and my 4 siblings (her only grandchildren besides me).  My grandma left me her trailer and all of her pets, so keeping up with 5 cats and a dog has been time-consuming as it is, but I have also embarked upon a few home improvement projects.  On top of all of that, I started a new job a week ago (my first job in 2 YEARS!!) as a Children's Activity Counselor at a local resort and I'm there for 12 hours a day (parts of which are unpaid, but hey, why come sit at home for a 3 hour break when I could be lounging poolside or soaking in the hot tub?)

However, I am feeling amazingly upbeat and positive about everything going on in my life and can't wait for some of this passion to spill over into a new post! 

Stay tuned this weekend to find out what happens in the world of Emma...


  1. Hey! I just started reading your blog a few days ago, and I'm really enjoying it. You're a very good writer! I'm sorry about your grandmother, and I hope you're doing well.

  2. I'm sorry about your grandmother, but I am so happy for you and your new job! It sounds like a ton of fun. (: No rush with the new blog, you have been going through a ton of stuff, and I'm sure we understand. I know i do. (:
