Please say a prayer for my nephew Zach. After having bronchitis for a week, he has now developed pneumonia. If he's not responsive to antibiotics, he will be admitted to the hospital Saturday.
Love you Zach! Get well soon!

So I had to have some blood drawn this morning. I was extremely nervous about it of course. When I sat down in the "blood giving chair" the lady said, “You don’t like this, do you?” I don’t know what gave me away – my sweaty palms, my heavy breathing, or the fact that I wouldn’t look in the direction of the needle from the second I stepped into the room. I told the nurse the horror story from my very first blood test. Some lady who'd had a stroke or something jerked the needle around my 15-year-old arm like it was her job. Ouch!

Anyway, all was fine – seriously it didn’t even hurt. I apologized to the lady for being such a huge baby.

I absolutely love fall. It's the best weather for riding and for everything in general - not too hot and not time for those winter coats that I hate wearing.
My favorite things of fall are pumpkins, carving pumpkins, mums, Starbucks Pumpkin Lattes, kids in their halloween costumes, Thanksgiving, tek vests, boots/jeans/sweaters, putting up "fall stuff" in my house, riding with dj in the combine, tailgating, the leaves turning on Kern Road where they hang over you when you drive through "the tunnel", candy corn, and hay rides. Hmmm...I think that's it. I have a really great idea for my carved pumpkin pattern this year. I'll post in when its ready.

Happy Fall!

Florida Here I Come...

I'm headed to Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow afternoon and I can hardly wait. Mom was supposed to come here last month, but she wasn't feeling well enough to travel alone. I'm excited for a little sunshine, R&R, and time with the fam. I'm bringing presents along this time in order to keep my favorite sister/favorite daughter status. Wait...I'm the only girl! :)
Here's what I'd like to do:

  • Go to The Grill for the world's best clam chowder
  • Meet David's new puppy, Delilah
  • Go for a walk on the beach with my dad
  • Paint my mom's toenails (it's a thing)
  • Rent movies with Joe
  • Get a T-A-N!

P.S. I had a HORRIBLE dream last night. I dreamt that DJ and I had a small child and that Tucker bit her finger off! I'm so worried that when we have kids that Tucker is not going to deal. What will I do? I don't think I could stand to give him up. Let's hope it's not an issue.
