Moments

Laura Rowe Photography

Happy Friday! Yes, I actually started a sentence with happy. Though, to be honest, nothing has changed, and even though I am suffering through a case of.. well.. a stomach issues (aka virus) and guzzling pepto, I am in fairly decent spirits.

I stayed up pretty late last night watching more videos on You Tube. I became fascinated with the Vlogs of a guy in Uganda. He is there, I am assuming still, and shares his basic experience. Does a pretty good job of it too!

Here is a sneak peek - you can watch his entire series! It's really short...


I also made myself watch the ABC 20/20 special on Rape & Murder in the Peace Corps. I realize there are massive risks involved, and it was interesting to see these stories. I hate to admit, but some of it I thought to myself, "What could they have done differently?" Especially the girls that were raped. Did they report it properly to the authorities? Should they have not walked out at night alone? See, these are things I would consider. Then the girl who was murdered, apparently she "did the right thing" but in turn ticked someone off in the village and was killed by him. Do you take unnecessary risks, when you have no protection?

Hmm.. food for thought. Though I feel really, REALLY bad for these people and their families, please know that! It's sobering and it's risky. But, hell - isn't life?

Here is a quick look at the beginning of the story...

Soooo... today I have the wonderful joy of decorating a friend's house for Halloween. Of course, she left for work without telling me where her little push pins and tape is, but... I will do what I can, search, then maybe shoot her a text...

Just as soon as my stomach quits rumbling...

Okay.. I downloaded a few pics from my mobile phone. See, no wireless at my parents house, so I have not been able to save any of the pictures to my laptop. Soo.. I did, and I will share with you some of my thoughts and the snap shots of my "new" life.

Enjoy!

But first...

 I miss this.......
 But instead, I am writing here....
 And this was my view about 15 minutes ago... (I LOVE Instagram on my phone.. added a cool look to it..)
 Instead of an egyptian - there is a vampire cat....
 And a little 5 year old with a cupcake....
 And crazy friends who dress in costumes and sing ballads in the back of your car...
 And personal shoe warmers.....
 This cracks me up - I found the trifecta of bad choices....


And finally... here is what I am embracing:
