What goes on in New Orleans, Stays in New Orleans...well except for this review





 In September of 2022, Sept 15th thru the 19th, I went on a cousin trip, around 12 of us, to New Orleans. It was a getaway to celebrate Virgo birthdays as well as cheer up one of my cousins who unfortunately had lost her husband earlier in May of last year. She was also the main birthday girl. So we caught an evening flight from Saint Louis, MO down to "The Big Easy". As soon as we landed we made it to our rentals and then proceeded to the Air BnB that was rented for some of the cousins to stay. I along with my sister and a few other cousins opted to stay at a hotel that was right in the smack of New Orleans. Before the main birthday girl arrived to the Air BnB I snapped off a few pictures of the house and birthday cake.

What is on the other side of fear?


So what is on the other side of fear? Safety, security, and just knowing that what was boring yesterday will be still boring the next day. Everyday I wake up and wonder what my life would have been like had I not gotten screwed up in my high school years. I'm currently 43 years old and I keep telling myself that it's not too late to reinvent myself. Yet I honestly wonder if I have the mental capacity to even bother trying. There are various demons I feel that I need to conquer but damn I wonder where to start.

Alice Windom is her name



 Thursday morning this Earthly plain released my Aunt Alice so she could be reunited with family and friends that have gone on before.

She was a unique woman who lived an extraordinary life. She was known on a professional level for being a Social Worker. She received her Bachelors and Masters in Social Work.

Even in the darkest of days, it cannot always be night

This weekend was tough. There isn't any way to sugar coat it. Saturday morning I said goodbye to a student. He passed away back on January 18th but his visitation and funeral were held on the 29th. Even though he was a high school student I was still use to seeing Christian every morning coming through my office because he was a VICC student which meant their buses arrived early enough that they had to be admitted through the middle school doors. You see the middle and high school buildings were all on the same campus.

The Pitfalls of dealing with Totaling Out your car.....



So my former car has the option of being totaled out. It had the option back on December 30th by the offender's car insurance. I decided that I wanted an estimate done by my insurance carrier. I have learned a very valuable lesson and should have just gone through with the Total Loss option the day it was offered. I realized that not all car insurance carriers operate the same. The offender's car insurance carrier, Geico, has been efficient and fast in regards to handling my claim. I've been so impressed with them it's honestly making me consider if I should switch to them.
