I am running this race with Patrick. I am super excited and a little nervous. For those who don’t know my history. I was in a wheelchair for about 6 months 5 years ago. I lost my ability to walk from complications of my last open heart surgery. I still have a very painful neuropathy in both legs. This is a really big and exciting deal.
Some people have said that I am in a mid life crisis. Some people have said that I am going to look like I fell face first into a tackle box. Some people have warned me to think about my health. Some people told me to think of my girls.
I don’t listen well to some people
I love my new piercing.
Thanks to Jenna for supporting me and taking these pictures.
I have been exercising. I know! It seems crazy if you know me at all. I used to exercise and didn’t really. I sang,messed around on itunes, tweeted. But in the last weeks I have gotten serious about it. Like timing my miles and everything. I am surprised how much I am really enjoying my self.
I have lost weight and my skinny jeans fit. It has been awesome.
I was supposed to go to a jewelry party yesterday evening. I was dressed and my hair was curled. Greg came home to watch the girls. I was almost to where the party was being held and the thought of making small talk and I was overcome with panic. I just could not make myself go. So I drove.
I drove and spent time with Zac Brown Band, Mumford and Sons, and bands I don’t even know the name of. I spent time doing what makes me happy. It was heaven even if it was only for a few hours. I can’t wait to escape again even if it just a few hours.
It is no secret that I love Disney. If you know me for more than five minutes you know I love Walt Disney World. I have the tattoos to prove it. Now I have a place to write down all that Disney knowledge I have.
I am excited to announce http://mousegenius.com/

I got into a text conversation today that has really just made my whole month. It made me laugh. It made me think. I learned some new things about a friend. What has made you smile lately?
