Spring Break!!!!!

12 May

I know it has been a long time since I have posted. I have had a lot happen since my last post. i would have preferred to posted has things happened, but I have not. So, I have a lot to catch all of you on. Things have been good. Things are better than a year ago, six months ago, and even two months ago. It feels like this path I am on is going so slow. But, when I think about it. My days seem slow, but the weeks and months are flying by.

So, I am going to let you know what has been going on.

I was back in Arizona two weeks ago. I had a former roomie turn the big 3-0. I also had to retrieve some things I left in Arizona when I left last summer. I also, spent time with my guru in Prescott. And, before I forget. I had a couple of drinks with my man, Tommy.

I really had a great time. I haven’t seen many of my friends since I left last summer. I really think for me I really had to show those that last saw me last summer, that i am doing well and looking healthy. For myself had to show people that i was ok, and I am going to be just fine. I also spent sometime in with a good friend that has been there for me and really helped me when I needed some advice. She has had some hard times over the past few months. I was happy to see she has turned the corner and doing very well. I also, of course, had a 30th birthday party. That was a blast. I was just having fun and hanging like I did before. Really, not much has changed. Except, I went from being the tallest person to the shortest person. I am so glad I went down to AZ for the big birthday. I also want to talk about Erika. We spent sometime together while I was there. I was very nervous about seeing her again. But, after spending time with her I came to some closure with her. I am so ready to move on. She is a wonderful woman, but we just weren’t going to workout. And, that is ok. Myself, I have tried to date again. It has not been successful yet, but it will at some point. But, I am hopeful.

After returning from AZ i worked to try and take the GMAT. Unfortunately, I did not do as well as I hoped. So, after some thought and discussing I am going to go ahead with going into business with myself. With my background in construction. i am going to work with owners to revitalize existing buildings to make them more efficient and healthy. With the growth in environmental buildings I believe i can do good things. So, I am holding off on grad school for the time, as i pursue this endeavor I am optimistic.

I am also now planning to go on a cruise through Alaska in July. I have spoken with the builder of my off-road chair. So, When I am there in Alaska I am going to stay for a few days and use the chair in Alaska. I am so excited for that.

I also, did get the grant for the basketball wheelchair. It was ordered last week and has a 6 to 8 week lead-time. i can’t wait for that.

In conclusion, I have a lot of good things on the horizon. I can barely wait. I can only think that is life. You have to take it one day at a time, and work for good times. I am excited about what is to come. I really am optimistic. i can wait to share what is to happen over the next few months, and years.

i hope I have caught you up.

    Joel…That’s a great update. It’s good to know that you see progress and growth. We’ve seen it, too…ups and downs with more ups in the long run. The project on environmentally friendly buildings sounds interesting. You’re getting in on the ground floor of a major new trend. Best of luck with it.
    Love, Elna and George…
