Oh!! Snap!

Wow! It's been awhile since I posted... I guess my gimpyness has made it to my head!

Tomorrow is my big day. I go to the Dr. and get this cast cut off and, by some slight chance at a miracle, I might only have to wear one of those black boots for the last 4 weeks! Not sure if I can mentally handle another 4 weeks in a cast. BUT, I think I am done with the crutches, THANK GOD!!!!

So, Tracy... Your blog on us being stupid kids together brought on a ton of memories, some I would like to forget, some that made me sad, but the majority of them made me laugh so hard I almost pee'd my pants!

For instance...riding our bikes down hills with no brakes; dropping buckets of rocks on your toes; bugs that we thought were dead beginning to spin on needles stuck through their bodies; playing kissing tag with the nieghborhood boys (Ew. Gross.), eating Ramen Noodles; eating two hand-fulls of popcorn before my sister got ahold of the bowl; Breyer Horses; My Little Pony castles; riding our bikes to Scott's to buy candy for 10 cents (that really makes us sound OLD!!!); there are many more, most of which make me glad I had you as a friend growing up and still today!

I'm glad to be an "adult" now, I think... I definately wouldn't want to be a teenager again, and the tween years weren't so much fun that I'd want to do them again either.

There is a feeling of accomplishment (and survival) when I look back over the adventure of my life so far. I've never been at a better place in my life as I am right now. Even though there are days I hate my job, hate my mother, none of my jeans fit the way they used too, and Trevor hogged the bed all night last night... But it's still good.

Life is good, complaining about it is like sitting in a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but you sure as hell don't get anywhere.


Shamelessly said...

Yeah... I thought of many of those things as I wrote my blog. I must have blocked out the whole bike/brakes thing. On purpose. Classic example of peer pressure gone horribly wrong. I'm amazed I made it through my formative years with you as my best friend. That said, I don't regret it at all. I really need as many as I can get.

I'd like to say something about the whole "popcorn" comment... You and shamelessly only got ONE big handful. Enough said.
