    You want more? I’ll make it….

    I think it’s about forgiveness…., originally uploaded by Suddenly Single. Oh how I wish I could say I was a Holiday type of person. I think since the Incredible Hulk skates mix up when I was child that I don’t have it in me anymore. I got an invite to bail out on Christmas morning madness and I actually considered it. Hell, I am still considering it. My sister is the glue of our family and when I put my fingers in my ears and start saying, “lalalalalala-i can’t hear you-lalalalalala” there is a good chance that I am going to get in trouble. She hasn’t given me the “Yes,…

    How much do I hate the doctors?

    How much do I hate the doctors?, originally uploaded by Suddenly Single. I have to laugh when they take my blood pressure. It makes them very uncomfortable that my blood pressure is so low. “This is scary low.” the nurse said. I realize that and that is why I went in…TWICE. The doctor said what they always say…”could be stress.” Which makes no sense to me because isn’t stress spose to give you HIGH blood pressure? I’m up to six viles of blood later and they don’t have any answers to what is wrong and why my body is shaking like I have hypothermia and I have to wear 5…

    Struggles..

    Well, I have reached that final spot. The one where you hit the floor in the hallway and slide up to the bed in praying stance and say, “GOOOOD! HELP ME!” I’ve been here before. Many times. This time seems to be different. I’m done living this life the way I think it needs to be lived. I’m giving my life back to God and going to live it as his will.  Whatever direction he points me in, I will not question anymore.  The need for peace and hope is what I need to stop just surviving and start living. Does this mean that I become one of those ‘bless…

    It didn’t make the cut…

    This SHOULD be our Christmas card!, originally uploaded by Suddenly Single. We went out today and got all our pictures done in ten minutes flat. After going through all of our pictures, we decided that this was the best one and it SHOULD be our Christmas card. We ended up going with the ones that make us look a little more civilized. *no photoshopping needed.

    Watch this!!

    I am SO grateful that my sister can ALMOST fully appreciate this sport now.  After she does her *first* tandem, she will be able to understand why I love it so much.  The fact that she said she WILL go and she is excited about it, just thrills me to death! So, here you go: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxMBCWfDV5Q&feature=player_embedded#! One of the most amazing things about this sport are the videos! If you didn’t get a chance to view Courage in Sports which had Ed and the other wingsuiters you missed a good show, check out TIV’s blog: http://teamillvision.blogspot.com/2010/11/courage-in-sports-awards-features-team.html

    The Ex-wives Club

    The Ex-wives Club, originally uploaded by Suddenly Single. Last night was the last night for Tabitha and Jeremiah in the town we live in. Her phrase always was, “I am not from here!” and I get it, but once we got past our differences (ha-that makes it sound less painful than what we went through) we got really close and I very much enjoyed her conversation and the times spent laughing with each other. I’m going to miss her ‘not from here’ ass. She was warned that she will have to come stay one weekend out of the month because I am going to go through Jeremiah withdrawals. I asked…

    Split Social Personality

    I’m at that weird cross road where I am caught between who I am, what I want to be…and in those moments I seem to be able to write from the heart.   As you can tell, i’m kind of half assing it here. So here is where the split social networking personality comes into play. Facebook: I write whatever the fuck I want, but then I hit delete and try to write it where my family doesn’t want to wash my mouth out with soap, my aunt feels she needs to pray for my soul, that is without a shadow of a doubt, going to rot in hell. I don’t…

    everything’s alright I’ll just say goodnight and I’ll show myself to the door

    everything’s alright I’ll just say goodnight and I’ll show myself to the door, originally uploaded by Suddenly Single. The weather was so nice driving back up to Redding yesterday. This morning the weather is horrible! The wind is kind of scary. I can drive in rain and snow without freaking out…but you throw wind in there and I get a bit weirded. It wasn’t as bad when I was driving the big truck, but my wee little car tends to get whipped around on the road. I tend to be a spur of the moment type of person. I decided in 3 minutes that I was going to throw a…

    Oh the blessings…

    Happy Thanksgiving! How fantastic was it to not wake up to an alarm this morning? Amazing!! How awesome is the cup of coffee I am enjoying from my bed on my NOT work computer? HEAVEN! Alyx is with a friend down south this week. It took a act of God for both Dan and I to agree to let her go because to both of us, she’s still just 5 years old and never too far from either one of us.  In a little over a month she turns 14 and it’s just not easy to wrap my mind around that. I am thankful that she’s a smart, funny and…
