Chit Chat

Sorry I have become such a boring blogger lately. I seem to have gotten into a routine of posting photos or maybe a short quiz. It's not that I am ignoring blogging. It just seems that I really don't have much to say. I think it's the weather, it makes me lazy, and I tend to become more of a hermit in the colder months. Hopefully since today is the first day of Spring, the Spring like temperatures won't be far behind. I was sitting here early this morning looking back on the last few months and with the exception of my mom having a heart attack I really don't have any complaints. (Thank Goodness) Life has been pretty routine, and we are going to sign a new lease at our apartment complex in a few weeks. I really want to move but we don't have the money for deposits, etc. so we are going to go ahead and stay. The rent will go up a little but it is still one of the cheaper apartment complexes unless you qualify for state assistance which we don't.
Speaking of apartment complex, when I came home from work last night I heard the news that there had been a horrible shooting at our old place in Virginia Beach. You can read about it
It seems that a lone person walked into the retail office and opened fire killing three people and injuring three others. Details are still coming in, but apparently it was over an eviction notice.
I was really upset to hear this because I lived in those apartments for three years and often went to the office, so I am sure I knew some of the victims.
It is really frightening to hear these types of things, because it just goes to show you are not safe anywhere. These were upscale apartments, running close to a thousand dollars a month (some units more than that). They were well kept and in a nice part of town. You rarely heard of a break in or even a bad neighbor, so for some one to walk in and shoot the girls in the office leaves my mind boggled.

I'm sure we will learn more on the news tonight.
In the mean time I am off to work. I hope everyone has a nice first day of spring.

Oh my, horrors. That's what I have felt before when I've heard of tragedies that have occured in places I have been or to people I have known. It feels like I narrowly missed the event - and I feel both relief and guilt over that. Did you feel those two emotions, hearing the news?

I have to agree with you that it is mind boggling.
I guess after a terrible event one would ask them self "why" but lot of time we just have to guest or leave it to rest.

For Spring it real doesn't look like spring at all here.
It actual snow today but none stuck to the ground.

We all go through this. I think it is seasonal plus we are blogs are "middle aged". We don't get excited about every little thing anymore.

What a tragedy!

That's awful. There is far too much violence and hatred in this world.

A belated happy vernal equinox to you. I've been a lazy blogger and visitor lately.
