November 25th, 2002

My cousin died. I was at her funeral in El Paso, TX this past weekend. The world seems a little bit quieter now... I bet all of you would have liked C. She was something else. That girl had more attitude than a drag queen in a pageant, but in a good way :) She was vibrant, true to her friends and family, and she was flat amazing.

We really hadn't talked in a few months, and let me tell you I feel like I have missed out on something. Last time we talked we were going to try and meet up somewhere soon and hang out. Unfortunately that will never happen.

So this was definitely a call for reflection. It's true what they say, you don't know what you got till it's gone. She was my favorite cousin (I know you're not supposed to have favorites!) because she was the most sane ;) That and I'd like to think we were a lot alike.

But this entry got a bit morose...C would NOT stand for it so I'll spice it up?

So Christmas is coming up. I am making my list now (and checking it twice). I'm in a "craftsy" kind of mood so I might be making some presents this year. I have some ideas that might pan out. Watching Trading Spaces helps a lot! (of course...Ty Pennington totally MAKES the show for me hehehehhee).

So as a public service message, I'm finishing this entry with a note...CALL your relatives...CALL your friends and just check in. Someday they might not be there...
