Placard at her grave.

Today, I am thinking of my late sister, Cristi Curtis.  She was shot to death by her estranged boyfriend on July 19, 2007.  Many things have changed since, as time ever goes on; but missing her has not.  I dreamt about her for the first time in maybe a year at the beginning of this week.  She was mostly just there, unlike some of the interactive dreams I had when she just passed.  So, today’s blog is simply a reminder that I’m still thinking about you Cristi, you are still missed and loved by all those left behind, and my awareness to domestic violence quadrupled since your passing.  Moreover, I am still thinking of ways I can support and educate others on domestic violence issues.  Here’s to the hope of seeing you again.

No Move for Us

No Move for Us

Well, we didn’t move. No move for us. We will be staying in the Pacific Northwest for an unknown amount of time. It could be the rest of the school year, and we try again in the spring, or if the kid thrives at school – we could be looking at another 4 years, minimum. Either way, right now, there is no move for us.
