probably the worst week of my life...

ok so i need to talk to some one about this...just keeps getting worse and worse...

Last week i went to my home town in BC because my grandfather was really sick and my mom told me he wasnt going to make it much longer. So i rushed back to spend a few days with him. While i was there my dad got a phone call saying his best friend had died in an avalanche. We are avid snowmobilers and we were planning on going for a trip but decided to not go becasuse it wasnt worth the risk.

I got a phone call from my fiance saying that Sparky was caught in the fence and he didnt know what to do...i told him to call our nabours because they are horsey people and my fiance is not! Well i guess Sparky ripped 3 fence post's right out of the ground and broke a leg. So my nabour went and got the gun and put him down without even calling me. I know that had to be done but i was a little upset that no one called me to ask me what to do first....

Then i went to go see my grandpa and he couldnt even talk to me...he just stared at me with this look on his face like he didnt even know who i was...i left the hospital and jumped in my car to drive back to my dads and my phone rings...grandpa past away..

So i came back to Edmonton and am getting back into the groove of things. We barried Sparky on our property and had a little ride for him with all our nabours in his memory.

So today(april 20) i got a phone call from a good friend of mine saying that our best friend Cody Maves was in an avalanche and passed away on the 10th. Cody was the first person i met when i moved to Alberta. His house was next to my grandparents and we used to go sledding in the fields. So now i have another funeral to go to in the sick of people going sledding and paying for it.

So anyways...if your a snowmobiler in the Alberta/BC area....PLEASE STOP GOING!...its not worth it!

I just needed to let it all our because its been a pretty bad week...

RIP Cody...

luv u budski

Oh My God, I can't even start to imagine the pain you are going though, all of that hitting you at once or in a short point of time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the fammilies of the ones who lost their lives.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

That's horrible. I mean really horrible .

Lots of cyber hugs. We are here for you and ready to listen if you want to talk more about all that.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
