Well we now have 3 wildfire/forest fires going off over here in Colorado.  Two of those fires are MAJOR fires, while the third is minor, well I just found out there is a 4th fire burning around Durango, but it is only about 80 acres.

All these fires were caused by lightening strikes and the very hot and dry summer we are having.  We’ve not had any decent rain OR snow for the past year.  We are in drought situation all over Colorado, though the worse I think is in the eastern plains of the state, but still with all the evergreen trees that have been killed off by pine beetles, has just made this area worse for fires to spread, and the gusting winds don’t help it none.

We have friends in Colorado Springs, so far we’ve not heard them having to evacuate yet, but parts of Colorado Springs have been evacuated, at least some of the neighborhoods close to the burning fire have been, as well as the Air Force Academy.

Man we SERIOUSLY NEED RAIN not more lightening.  A few days or even a weeks worth of rain would help immensely in controlling all the fires that are raging around Colorado.  We are praying that we get more then what we have gotten so far and hope that the rain will help the firefighters that are fighting to get control of these raging wildfires.

Thankfully I’ve heard recently that the high park fire is about 66% or so contained now, then it was back about a month ago.  The one around Colorado Springs, I don’t remember, along with the others that are around, and apparently there is more then 4 wildfires going on, there could at least be 8 or so altogether.

This is going to be the worst fire season for Colorado, from what we are gathering, never before has this much been destroyed and burned by wildfires.  Man it’s going to be a rough year.  Lets hope and pray that come Winter, we get a shit ton of snow all over the place, to hopefully replenish some moisture into the surrounding mountains and cities, that are under the gun of Mother Nature, fire wise.

We need all the prayers we can get from everyone out there.  Help would be appreciated as well, but that will be up to your judgement and if you do decide to help, look on the red cross site and look on the 9 News site or any of the news sites around Colorado to see where you can send help.  My prayers are already going out to the firefighters and the families and home owners that have lost so much.  We’ve had a few fatalities in one fire so far this year, but thankfully NONE so far with these new fires that are burning, but lots of property loss is just as bad cause people are losing memories to the flames of Mother Nature.

If anyone has been paying attention to the news and has been hearing about the big fire happening here in Colorado, well there is some good news and some bad news.

The bad news first: It has burned over 43,000+ acres of land and is still not contained, except maybe at 10% and many evacuations has been called for in the area of the fire, which is thankfully to the north of us and sadly around or near Fort Collins.

The good news is: The fire has spread into a beetle dead tree area where all the trees have been killed off by beetles, and will now be burned to the ground and hopefully gotten rid of and will start new life without the beetle infestation that is killing thousands if not millions of our trees off over here in Colorado and ruining the beauty of the surrounding lands, hills and mountains.

The fire will hopefully be contained in the near future, but I doubt it will be too soon, cause once it hits that dead trees that’s fresh kindling for fires to break out in.  It also don’t help none that we’ve had two very dry winters and have entered into drought area, which will hopefully change this winter and we start getting more rain and snow and the likes.  We seriously need rain right now not storms that can throw off lightening and start up more fires.

I pray that we get some relief cause the air quality is very bad with all that smoke in the air and it causes issues with people who have breathing problems, that’s why I’ve got the windows and doors shut and the air conditioning going instead of letting in fresh air, cause the air isn’t fresh with all the pollen and smoke out there and my allergies and asthma would not be happy with me at all.

We are suppose to be getting rain/storm chances today and tomorrow and I think Saturday.  I’ll have to relook at the weather to make sure, but it’s a VERY LOW chance.  “Knock on Wood” I say and hope that we do get rain and relief from the summer heat and temps of 90+ degrees.

You know it seriously sucks, when out of the blue you are suddenly depressed and don’t know what the hell caused it.

Well that happened to me just before midnight.  I got off the XBOX feeling like shit and I hadn’t done nothing to feel like it.

I think it dealt with a friend of mine friends that caused it.  They muted me and didn’t want to hear me talking to my friend while I was visiting with him on Minecraft, and not long after he left to go to the store for his mother to get something I was booted from the party.  I didn’t do nothing to these people ok.  Anyways it makes me feel like my friend doesn’t want to talk or anything to me now, but I know that isn’t true, but it still hurts when you went to talk to a person you hadn’t talked to in a while and get that done to you.  I guess that could have been where it started.

Then after getting off XBOX feeling depressed and on the verge of crying, I come into the bedroom and had to gently wake my man up to move over so I could be on the bed with him, and he decided to go into the living room and give me the bed.  I know he didn’t mean to do that and that he didn’t know that I was in a slightly depressed mood, but there has been a lot going on for us lately, with the car tag issues and getting lists and plans done for our vacation to visit my family in Arkansas and Illinois.

I just don’t know what he and I can do together any more really, and I’m beginning to wonder if I’m starting to smother him because I DO want to spend time with him doing things online or together.  I just don’t know what to do any more in that area.  I love him to death and I think my loving him to much is smothering and I can’t help that it winds up like that.  It sometimes makes me wonder if I should ever be involved in relationships if I wind up getting smothering and such.  That’s how I lost my first love, was because I was smothering him with love.  I try not to do it but it happens anyways and I hope I don’t lose the man I’m with now cause of the same thing.

Gah I SERIOUSLY hate feeling depressed and like I DONE something WRONG to feel like this and everything.  I just wish there was a way other then freaking prescription drugs to deal with it.

I mean the depression doesn’t happen often, but it just sneaks up on me out of the blue and I HATE IT!  I wish there was no such thing as depression, but thankfully with this depression, I’m not feeling suicidal like I was back in high school, but I’m still depressed and feeling useless and unwanted.  I know it will go away, but at this moment it’s just hanging right under the surface waiting to burst or explode out like a sleeping volcano that has finally decided to blow it’s top.

Depression is such a pain in the ass and needs to go away, but we all already know that it never will go away cause it’s a part of our daily lives here on this planet in our world and has been there for Lord knows how long, so we can’t escape it even if we try. *sighs*

Well I do feel a little better getting this off my chest and out of my mind, maybe I’ll feel much better after I rest and wake up in the morning.  I’m going to go back and do a few more cryptograms and then call it quits for the night.  Have a good night, good day, good evening, good afternoon or good morning, where ever you live out there in our world.

OK I’m lying here in the bed, and started thinking I needed to post something since it had been awhile.

This all started about oh I’d say 4 hours or so ago.  I’ll start from the beginning.

I got offline with my sissy and bro after playing a few hours or so on Wizard101.  I was getting really foggy brained.  I decided to go take a nap, and woke up about an hour later actually feeling much better and clear minded.

Then I got on XBOX for a while and played on MineCraft and discovered that my very first world I created on there was actually pretty awesome in looks.  I discovered many more areas, one with twin waterfalls and others with a nice sized desert and the likes, I also discovered that not far from my little tree farm there were a couple of lava pits on the surface, which we usually find underground.

Anyways, after showing it off to my better half, I decided to join up with a friend of mine on there in the group he was in and chatted, but apparently two of the people didn’t like my chatting and muted me. Oh well, I also was on my friends world in MineCraft for a little while before he had to go to the store, then his friends booted me from the party after he went afk, and after that got on and played a little bit of MW3 before just shutting down the game and XBOX, then out of the blue Depression decides to hit me.

I have no clue what trigged the depression, but I decided to come into the bedroom, and I told my man he didn’t have to leave the bed, but he did anyways and that even made it worse.  I’m wondering if it was the way I was treated when my friends, friends decided they didn’t want to hear me talking or want me in their party, but who the hell knows, I sure don’t.

As I was saying, I came into the bedroom and decided to do some Cryptograms, and they helped for a while, but the depression was still there just under the surface making me just want to break down and cry, I think I did cry a little, but I stopped and started thinking that I needed to get on and post something and maybe that will help me, so here I am posting like I said I would, after waiting a couple of hours for my little netbook here to update and all.

We also had to delete a program from the computer cause it was interferring with Java Update, and come to find out the program that was running actually shutdown just this past June 1st and it was the zumodrive thingy, so we removed it.

Anyways, I’ll be posting more and I do feel a little better but I think the next post might just make me feel much better.

Well as my sissy posted, big bro graduated with honors yesterday and at the age of 46! I’m very proud of him, so I bought him a small graduation gift that I know will be used.  I got him a Wizard101 card, as well as sissy :).

I figured both of them needed something that we all would use, so I bought two of them.  Use them well, which I know they will :).

Congrats Bro! For graduating and now going after your Masters.  I wasn’t feeling so great so I didn’t go, but sissy and mom were there along with Sean, one of sissy’s kids.  I went to visit them yesterday after we picked up bro to take him to Wal-Mart and the likes, for he is staying the weekend with sissy.

I hate feeling tired and my stomach giving me issues, but thankfully today I’m feeling much much better.  I was in bed by 2 something this morning and was fully passed out by the time my man came to bed.  It’s amazing what a good nights rest can do for you  :).

On the 5th of this month known as June, there will be a much rarer show to be seen.  For those who watched the eclipse of the Sun recently, I wouldn’t throw away those glasses or whatever you used to watch it with.  A much rarer eclipse is about to happen.

On June 5th, if you watch the sun, you will see Venus cross over the sun’s disk as it continues on it’s journey around our solar system. The next time this will happen will be the year 2117, so enjoy it while it lasts.  According to some sources this will be the last time for a long time before you see it again and it is suppose to last June 5-6th as the sun starts to rise in Europe, which will most likely put it in our vicinity as the sun rises in the USA some hours later.

I could be wrong on the hours, but not the date(s), but when ever it happens if you want to watch Venus transit through the sun or near the sun like a small dot crossing the surface then get out there and hope that the sky will be clear and not cloudy :).

You can find much information out there dealing with this spectacular show by looking under Venus or Venus Transit in your search engine.  Enjoy!
