And he asked me if that was ok! I didn't know what to say!! I just told him we will talk about it when the time comes!! Ok so I got to thinking about it last night and ALL day today!! I really don't want to date him!! I dont want to lose our GREAT friendship!!! And he has a 7 year old! I don't know what to do!!

So yeah that's all I can say about this whole weekend!!! Like ok what just happened?!? WTF!!!!

So I worked Tues, Wed, and Thurs. of last week! That meant a 4 day weekend!! Cause I was off Friday through Monday, which is today!! So I was all pumped!! Well Fri. Ashley calls me and she has to go home to Miss. for a funeral. So I was all like ok that's fine. But to myself I was saying ok there goes my night!! Well I stop by at the fire station to talk to Pat and Kori wanted to go to walmart, so of course you can never give up a trip to the big bad wally world!! Well we went and got back around 10 that night. I went back to the station to talk to Pat then we got a call for an assult! Let me just tell you that was the most funny call I have run in a while!!! Ok so I get home and go to bed around 1 in the morning!! So I get up Sat around 10 and head out to Pat's cause it was his birthday and I cooked the boys and him spagetti! That was great cause I bought him a Little Mermaid cake!! It was histerical!!! NEWAYS!! I just realized that my spell check is on the fritz!! So if anything is mis-spelled don't blame me!! Well I had to run a call Sat all by my lonesome and drive our big bad pumper/engine!! That was fun in the pouring rain!! Well Sat evening, Kori called me and she wanted to go to walmart so I was like ok!! FYI Fri. night we didn't go to walmart! We went to Target!! My bad! So Im stanting outside waiting on her to pull up and its still raining! Well I call down to her house and Richard says that there is a crazy lady on their porch! So being the nosey person I am I went on down there and we sent her to the hospital with Pat the guy on duty so I had to stay at the statiion for an additional 3 hours and then he showed up and me and Kori went to walmart at like 11 at night!! So Sun came around and nothing really important there! We had a call to the village and one of our firemen got cussed out by the patient!! That was fun!! But today you know what I did... Nothing!! I got up when my da called me about a tornado going over his shop in Bessemer, so I was up! And then I had to go and get Calob from school at 3 so thats all I did ALL day! I don't know whats wrong with me!! Well I do but nothing can be done about that until Sept. 22 when I go to the GI surgon! But thats all I have for right now! I need to get my thoughts straight and I'll be back in a lil while!!

So nothing really exciting in my world today!! So I thought I would dedicate this entry to my favorite subject... History!! Here's some facts you might not have known!!!

3000 years ago, most Egyptians were considered old and died by the age of 30
Ancient Egyptians used slabs of stones as pillows
In the 1800s, if you attempted suicide and failed, you would have to face the death penalty.

Thats all I got for right now!! I'll find more!!

My Second Father!!

First of all I would like to give a shout out to Kori!! Cause I stole this lovely pic of her husband off of her blog(see bloglist on stage right!)

This is a pic of my second father!! He really isn't my father but over my many years of knowing him he has become that and much much more! I met Kori and Richard through a mutual friend at our church!(no name mentioned due to the fact of...) Ok so where to begin! I was 13 and I was at "said" friends house for a swimming party for the "said" friends son was having a birthday party! Well worse came to worse and me and Kori started joking around and well there you go!! All those many years later she is my sister from another mister!! HAHA!! Ok not really but she is the closest thing I have EVER had to a REAL sister!!( Im getting teariy eyed here just thinking about this!) Well then comes the introducing to the man that is my "dad"! To tell you the truth I thought he was so much like my dad it was kinda scary!! And then comes the "monsters" I mean lovely children!! Jacob who is 11 now and started Middle school this past wed. and Calob who is 9! And as with the whole family I accepted them as the little brothers I have always wanted!! All of their close friends think that I am their aunt! And the boys just play it off as im their step-sister/adopted! Funny fact... I'm ok with that!! Thats the story of how I have a whole new family like a stones throw from my house! Literlly!!

Well heres to the most... Honestly I haven't come to the conclusion of a emotion to call this feeling! It is like a burden in my heart for not only Richard but for Kori and MY boys!! But here goes!!

Last June I think it was, I get a phone call from Kori and I was at work in the ER. She says " do you have a min. I really need to tell you something and I think you need to sit down!" So I walk out to the ambulance bay and she tells me the most... shocking to say the least, news I have ever heard. She said" you know how Richard was having those stomach pains", I said yeah! "Well they did (I think it was the barium swallow) and he has colon cancer!" I couldn't say ANYTHING!! I just sat there letting everything run its corse in this thick skull of mine. She said he was set up for surgery tomorrow and they are confident that if it hadn't spread to the lymph nodes that they can get it ALL. I said ok I will check in on you when I can, cause I had to work! Alright so the surgery went ok they think they got it all but it was in the lymph nodes so they had to do chemo. It messed with his Cystic Fibrosis so he had to stop.

He went back to the dr. at the beginning of this year and they said he had a "few" tumors "floating" as I think Kori put it, in his stomach and so he did another round of chemo. It just sustainded the tumors. They didn't get bigger or smaller. So they tried a new drug on the tumors they took out last year and it seemed to fight the cancer so they started this new treatment Monday! He went for another cat scan tuesday and it showed that the tumors had grown and there was a "few" more as Kori put it!

Richard, through all of this, I have NEVER seen him be down about it! I have heard from MANY of our church members that they went to see him to bring his spirits up and they leave after having their spirits brought up by him! That is why I love you so so so much Richard!! You are a fighter til the ends of the earth and back! I look at the way you seem to have a different repora with the boys now! I cant even imagine what is going through their minds as they see their "HERO" fight this fight for them and Kori!!! Well and for all the lives he touches through his testament to GOD!!

Right now as Im typing this my heart aches for my Family!! I have ( I hate to say this) broken down a few times since I heard this news today! But all I know right now is everything happens in God's time and He has a reason for EVERYTHING!!! Thats all I can convey to each and everyone of my readers! I hope this gets through one thing!! Cherish EVERYONE that has EVER touched your life! I cherish every moment I have with "dad" now!! I love you SO much Richard!! I don't know what I would have done without you in my life! And I will continue to prosper because of you and your wisdom you continue to give me everyday!!

Vacation over!!

Well as you can tell I have returned alive and well from my vacation with... you guessed it a new tattoo!! I absolutely love it!!! I got it yesterday afternoon after a weekend of waiting! I had debit card issuse all weekend so I couldn't go and get it! Ok so to start off with the vacation we got lost!!!! We went all the way to Mobile before I could get a hold of ANYONE on the phone to tell me where to go!! So what should have been a 5 hour drive turned into about a 9 hour one!! Well we got there finally and we got a hotel room at the PEEKS hotel! It was ok nothing to write home about!! Well first thing Sat morning we met up with my brother and sister and we hung out at the beach for the morning. Me and Ashley got tired and I got REALLY sunburnt and so we journeyed to walmart and bought food stuff. We came home and went to get Ashley's nose peirced! She said it didn't hurt but I don't know!! Well so we just chilled Sunday and then Monday afternoon was the best time ever!! Well we got up at around 8 this morning to a hurricane outside!! Well it wasn't really a hurricane but it might as well had been!! So that delayed our departure about 3 hours. And we got homa around 7 so wasnt all that bad!

Ok back story to the tattoo!! As you can tell its a Scottish flag!! And the 3 letters in the middle of it is SGA! Well I don't know if anyone that reads this knows but my most beloved character is Dr. Carson Beckett. He is/was the Cheif Medical Officer on Stargate Atlantis. He is from Scotland! And the Actor that portrays him in real life is Scottish. His name is Paul McGillion!! And Tragiclly he was killed off in Season 3. Well that is for his memory and the SGA is for the show itself!! So that's the back story!! Updates to come!!

Alot has happened!!

Well it has been a hot minute since I have posted, and just let me tell you it has been a crazy weekend!!

To start off Sat was my birthday and me and Ashley went to Alabama Adventure at around 4 o'clock! Well we got there and paid for our tickets and got a locker and went to the lazy river thingy. We got out of the lazy river and went to wait for like 30 min. for a ride in the water park. We got to the top and went down and loved it!! We went to the lazy river again and then we went to the wave pool! Thats when it gets great!! It started lighting and raining so everyone started running around and screaming!!! So we left there and headed back home to get ready to go out with a couple of coworkers for my birthday! Well we went to TC's bar and I just sat there!! The bought Ashley drinks but I looked to young so you know how that goes!!

Well while we was at TC's, the fire department I work at had a really bad car accident that we had to run. Here is the story. God bless the workers and all the family and friends that had to see the horrific sight at the scene of the accident.

With all that said I have to work tomorrow and I'm going to bed!

Alright!! So my beloved birthday is tomorrow!! And with the help of Kori, I have decided to go with Ashley and Kaci to Alabama Adventure!! It will be fun!! Only one bad thing which is the title of this post!! The best present ever that anyone could give!!
