It's not goodbye

I know I JUST came back from a blogging hiatus but I'm going on another one for a while. There's a whole bunch of issues I need to take care of and blogging needs to be put on the back burner for now. You can still occasionally find me on twitter (@jamielkulik) or on instagram (@justajerseygirl). I'll still be reading and hopefully can now find some time to comment on all the blogs I follow. You can also feel free to email me! (probably the best way to reach me).

It's not goodbye it's see us later

A month hiatus.

Okay so I was gone for almost a month. Honestly it felt longer. I wish I could say I was out doing fun things, but I haven't. I've been working 6 days a week, 9 hours a day. The last thing I want to do when I come home is go online. I spend time with Mac & the pup and that's abut it. So for today, how about a photo dump? You can follow me on instagram @justajerseygirl by the way! So here's what I've been doing lately

I got new curtains for the living room. The top are the old the bottom are the new. These cost me $10 total thanks to walmart

My dad's birthday was Sunday & he's on vacation so we sent him this pic

I started project 365 (one photo a day everyday for a year)

I've taken random outfit of the day pics. Just because I can

I made lunch on my new stove!

I paid remembrance to my grandpa who passed 14 years ago 

Took gorgeous sunrise pics

So that's a brief summary of what I've been up to lately!

14 years later...

My Precious Granddad

I Wish I Could See You One More Time
Come Walking Through My Door
But, I Know That Is Impossible
I Will Hear Your Voice No More
I Know You Can Feel My Tears
And You Don’t Want Me To Cry
Yet, My Heart Is Broken
Because I Can’t Understand Why
Someone So Precious Had To Die
I Pray That God Will Give Me Strength
And Somehow Get Me Through
As I Struggle With This Heartache
That Was Caused By Losing You

In Precious Memory Of Richard E. Oliver
Who Walked Through Heaven's Gate
August 24th 1998

Richard E. Oliver

July 5th 1924 - August 24th 1998

Well Pop it's been 14 years since you left us. I've been thinking more & more about you lately. Mom & I watched old videos of our trips to Gettysburg PA we took together & looked at old pictures of all of us. It makes me sad that you missed me growing up. I was only 13 when you passed. I know you're looking down at me from above, but it doesn't make it easier. I hope you're proud of the person I've become.

When I play games of War with people or do a word search they make me think about you. We never did finish that last game of war.. You owe me that game when my time here is up. Mom & I were laughing about the hat that grandma bought you for christmas. (this hat she got him was just a winter cap, he put it on & was able to roll it down to his chest, it the joke of the night lol) You were my most favorite grandparent I had. I'd like to think we had a special bond. I hurt myself like you do. I too often stand in the doorway and hit my elbow on the frame. It happens to the best of us I'm so glad I went to Hershey Park with you and that we stayed to see the light show. "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood has a special place in my heart. We haven't been back there since. Maybe Mom & I need to pay it a visit someday soon. Thanks to you, mom & I have a love for stationary & tend to stockpile it. I think we have a box of your pens around still

I used to dream of you so often, but since Grandma passed, they've been less & less. I guess you're settled with her being with you. Please pay me a visit or send me a sign that you're around. I love you with all my heart & miss you everyday that goes by.

We'll meet again someday, but for now keep looking over me & mommy
