Since I last blogged, my great grandmother was alive. Yesterday, it was three weeks since her passing. My mom said it was almost as if she had chosen that time – my Mimi was on her way home from school (she teaches), and I was on my way to Sonic to pick up lunch for me, my mom and my aunt, Bebe. It was like she didn’t want the two of us to watch her go. But the truth is, I had been watching her die. Changing her and things … She was slowly dying. This woman I had known my entire life who had battled cancer, stroke after stroke, and more simply couldn’t fight Shingles and another stroke. She had been dying before my eyes the entire time, in the front living room (right outside my room), and my mom, Mimi, Bebe and I all thought she was going to get better. She was on oxygen. It reminded me of my great grandfather. It was depressing, yet soothing, that she would soon be up in Heaven with him and Jesus.
Her death made me think. It opened my eyes. Now when someone wants something done, I have this thing that kind of makes me want to do it. Mama Lois (my great grandmother) always wanted things done right away. It couldn’t be done later – it had to be done “now”.
I feel like there’s a new me now. It’s quite odd. But I’m still the old me. Which brings me to my new domain name.
In life, nothing is free; it all comes at a price. The United States of America is a free country, but what had to happen in order for us to be free? There’s cents gone. Or, when one is simply putting their two cents in, there’s cents gone. Make sense? I like it. 🙂 I wanted something simple. I still have 6birds.net, but centsgone.info is where my blog is located now. I’ve completely started anew – I did not move files from 6birds over here. I’m starting fresh<3
When I’m not so lazy (maybe today, who knows?), I’ll manually add the files of the theme I created for centsgone.info and put it on here. So, if you’re seeing a scrapbook theme, it means I was/am still too lazy. D: Haha. I’m on my mom’s laptop, and I can’t figure out how to zip files on here. 🙁 There’s no FTP program, either. Which means custom smilies are going to have to wait …
