this is from a few weeks back when i was sick with the swine flu..or at least was just plain sick.
it came right about the time swine flu broke out..which wasn't the best time to be hacking, sneezing, and blowing my nose constantly while at work.
i am definitely going to have to try and find a better way of posting sketches than taking pictures of them.

OK REALLY? It's been to long since I've updated. It wouldn't hurt to write things down more often.
I went back to Cleveland to visit with my mom before her big surgery and everything went well. It was great to see her and how well she is doing. I also got to go out one night and hang out with friends I haven't seen in years. It's good to know i have such a great group of friends that when we do get together it's like nothing at all has changed.
As always, it was hard to leave home and it didn't seem like I had visited for nearly long enough.
It wasn't much longer until I left for Knoxville to get my godmother status.
It was amazing to see how much she has grown and watch her learn to do things right before my eyes.
I had a blast just hanging out with little sweet t and laughing. I can't wait to see her again! Hopefully for her 1st birthday in August with all of my family!
Ever since I've gotten back from my traveling ways, I haven't been focused. I hurt my back last week and have been laid up for days because of the pain which lead to a lot of thinking, which made me realize I haven't been very positive or focused as of late and I really need to start working on myself. More so than ever. i have every opportunity in front of me, but do nothing about it. While reading "The Shack" by WM Paul Young, I read something that really hit home and helped me put all of this into perspective.
As "selfish" as it sounds I will start on my journey of focusing on myself and infusing positivity in my life..for my own good and for the betterment of other people. That's that! I'm tired of being all talk and no action.

It's always nice to know how much people you hardly even know have your best interest and truly care.
My mom's surgery was a success! I am so grateful. Now we are just waiting for her to wake up.
Thanks to everyone who sent positive vibes our way.
Really, hospitals are filled with very strange and unhappy people...it makes for good people watching though.

So, it's been forever since I last posted. I've just been putting it off for way too long...so here is to getting back into the swing of things.
I have been sick for quite a while now with whatever strange coughing/laryngitis bug that has been going around. Even though I have been taking my medicine and all the doctor said I wouldn't be feeling like for 2-3 weeks more. I wish I could get over this already. Feeling exhausted no matter how much sleep I get is frustrating.
We've had quite a few out of towners visit us in the past month or so.
Nina and Travis visited for a little get away from Florida.
Let's just say it was an incredibly rowdy weekend, but I guess that is to be expected whenever the two Travis' get together.
It was great to see Nina and I miss having a friend like her around.
Dog boxing? There were four dogs running around Jesse and Brittany's house. A little crazy.
We found new playmates for Rambo though! He loves going over their place.
Not long after Travis brother, Thomas and his girlfriend Sarah came to visit us from North Dakota.
We showed them around downtown and took them to our favorite place ever, Mellow Mushroom.
We showed them around Tybee Island and stopped at The Crab Shack for a drink and to check out the alligators.
I had never been there before, but it looks like it would be a really fun place to hang out on the patio during the summer.
It was really nice to have guests every once in a while. Hopefully we'll have more in the upcoming months!
