About 2 years ago, I wasn't feeling well. I was sick and tired of not feeling well. I was looking forward to my last Mom's Weekend in Pullman and and Athletic Director's Conference in Spokane. I knew that soon we would find out why my pneumonia keep hanging on. What I didn't know what how much my life would truly change forever over the next year. Luckily, I'm still here to talk about it, and laugh in the middle of adversity.

The past month has been a whirl wind. With both Rick and I having scan results that were less than perfect we had to look cancer in the eyes again and remind it who's boss. On Thursday, Rick sneezed and felt something pop in his tooth so he's been suffering with a bad toothache ever since. We talked to our dentist this morning who put Rick on an antibiotic and pain pills to get him through the weekend. Hopefully, he'll get some relief soon. He's been in bed all day.

Pam stopped by today to visit, talk about Relay and play a little Wii. She kicked my behind in darts (but not as bad as my dad did yesterday). If you ever need to smile, just play a little Wii. It's a sure way to turn your corners up.

I'm going to get to bed early tonight since I'm going to church in the morning and I lose an hour because of daylight savings time. Or I gain an hour? Is this a math question?

Stay healthy and happy :)

Dreaming Big,

I just want your family (you especially)to know how much you have come to be a part of my life. My sister and brother in law live in Stanwood, although you don't know them, but that is how I heard about you. I have been reading your blog for about a year, and you are an amazing group. I sometimes (well, too many times I must admit!) feel sorry for myself because I live in Everett, commute to Seattle every day, am single with not enough money (who has??,) I suffer from some addiction problrms, and I just plain don't particularly like my life. I envy you, as crazy as that sounds. You have a lot of life in you even though I may outlive you. You inspire me, and it just seemed the time to let you know it. God bless you and your beautiful family.
