Time Flies

Time sure flies when you're not lying on the couch feeling sorry for yourself!  

It's been what, three, four months since my last non-follow through with pictures post.  Let me tell you, baby rabbits grow really freaking fast.  I mean, if we could insert the DNA of those critters into human babies...there might be a chance of people like me actually having a kid, especially since I won't need to deal with that 18 year commitment and all.

So much has happened in the last few months, that I don't even know where to begin.  Bullet points are best for situations like these, because I really don't think I have the time or energy to actually write it all down and do I want to take the chance that it won't even be read in its entirety.  

  • I have pretty much been told by my surgeon to go forth into the world and do what I am able to do.  This doesn't leave me with a lot of options, but I do wear matching shoes to work, I am able to go shopping if I choose, I can do stuff in our yard, and I can walk my precious little snowflake of a dog.  I still have bad days, but my good days out number them.  I've also come to the realization that I'll never be able to do a lot of the things that most normal people can't, but hey, I've never really been normal (more on that in a bit).
  • I took a whirlwind trip back to Arkansas and came to the realization that you can take the girl out of the city.  I swore for the last three years that living in the "country" was going to kill me.  I didn't like the bugs, the snakes, and most of all, I hated the sheer quiet of it all.  Well, this little trip back to The Rock, well, let's just say it was too loud for me.  I couldn't wait to get back to my quaint little house and my quiet little life in Florida.  Don't get me wrong, I miss my Mom back in AR and I miss my friends as well, but they really need to get their head's on straight and move to the land of the palm tree.
  • I got married.  This probably should be the biggest bullet point you can find, but honestly, it wasn't anything big at all.  It wasn't really anything.  We found out that you can get married in Florida by a notary, and being the unconventional never do anything normal couple that we are, well this just seemed fitting.  But, we didn't just go to the Pack N Post, we found someone we trust, found a quiet corner of a beach, and said our three lines of vows and exchanged rings ceremoniously.  It was short, sweet, simple, and just how we really wanted it to be.  It pissed a few people off  (okay, it really only pissed one person off), but after knowing each other for almost 22 years and living together for almost 17, I think doing it any other way would have been a joke for us.  I will never regret the way we got married.  A wedding is a day, a marriage is all the rest of the stuff.

So, that's the highlights.  I'm hoping to get back into blogging again on a regular basis.  I have more time to do the things I want to do now, so writing is at near the top of my list.

I've actually missed my little blog...a safe place to be.

Congrats on your wedding!

Wearing matching shoes is good too.
