Yay...I'm finally on to do one of Denise's Thankful Tuesdays!! Its been forever since I've done one...

This weeks subject is here goes just off the top of my head!

  1. This week I am thankful that my kids are almost done with school!! Final projects will be turned in by the end of the week and books are returned to school!! Yay for summer!

  2. I am thankful that my son, Jake will be promoting into High School next Tuesday! Yes that's right, I said High School! There was a time that the doctors told me he didn't have a chance...and here he is, 14 years old making his journey into High School! I'm so very proud of him!

  3. I am thankful for being able to spend some quality time with some dear old friends, Jenny and Kelly, that I haven't been able to be close to other than the here and there quick hello on Myspace or Facebook. I really cannot believe that Jenny moved in across the street! And when Kelly comes to visit I get to see her too!! Yay!!!

  4. On that note I am thankful that ALL of our children have become friends...I have Jake and Jessica. Kelly has Kourtney, Maggie and Jacklyn and Jenny has Brooklyn, Zeke, Mercy and was so cute how they all just bonded like they were family!

  5. I am thankful that my friend Denise is getting some relief from her morning (all day) sickness and that we may be able to spend some time together this week. I really miss her!

  6. I am thankful that I got to start tanning this week! I don't wanna be a ghost in August when we go to Hawaii!!

  7. I am thankful that I have started to ease my way back to the gym...slowly! lol!

  8. I am thankful that my hubby got to go into work at a decent hour on Monday (8am...he usually goes at 5:30 am) it was nice waking up and him still being there and being a part of our weekday routine. I even got coffee in bed! Thanks Honey!!

  9. I'm thankful that I got to spend an AWESOME night out with my SIL Sara, on her birthday! We dressed up in pretty dresses and went to an art auction fundraiser for our kids school. It was so fun!!

  10. And lastly, I'm thankful that everyone I know is actually doing really good right now! Dad is home from the hospital and healing, we are on track for the summer with a great vacation planned, Denise and her family are expecting a healthy new baby =) All just seems to be well!

Bad Dreams....????

Ok...I know I haven't posted in FOREVER!!! So I will jot down a few lines now!
So last night I had a horrible dream...that was actually mind opening and kinda peaceful...if that makes sense! lol

In this dream I was planning my husbands funeral!!!! WHAT THE HECK!!!!!!! I have no idea how he died or how much time had past but I was actually ok for the most part. (It was present day, I was exactly the age I am now and so were my kids) I remember being a his FAVORITE track in Turlock, "THE OATFIELD"...there were hundreds of people there!! (My husband is a VERY quiet guy and doesnt have many friends, as he really just keeps to himself and his family so this is why I'm sooooooooooo surprised and happy so many people turned out.) I was the one doing ALL of the talking, which I'm sure if this day EVER comes when I'm still alive I will NOT be doing ANY of the talking!!! (I told him that I have to go before him because I could never survive a day on this earth without him!!)

Anyhoo, I remember saying things like, Robert only had a few loves in his life, his children, myself (hopefully, lol), his family and friends, his truck and dirtbike and this track! (meaning the track we were having the funeral at) I went on to say, we have been coming to this track for about 12 years, before my son could even race (Jake raced his very first race at 4 1/2 years old at this track). My husband broke bones on this track and still loved it!

I pointed people out in the crowd- like this kid that we have seen grow up on the track and I said "He loved to ride the track but he also loved to watch people, like you Mark Braden, he was so amazed by the way you have grown up and have learned to race on big bikes now...he cannot believe you could kick his but on the track and you're only 13!!" (there were giggles)

I went on to say "and the girls at the sign in trailer, Amy and Glenda, he couldn't go a weekend without giving you a hard time...but he would ALWAYS stop by to say hello...because you made him smile, thank you.

"Jack and Corky,(which are father and son who own the track) He would give you a hard time about playing poker on Saturday nights between races instead of prepping the track for the next day...just cuz he thought it was funny...but he knew how hard you guys work and appreciated you so much and he knew you needed a break! (The dream seemed to keep going on and on....)

I pointed people out that just stood out in his life, people I think I didn't even know really my BFF's husband Erik, in my dream Erik had turned out to be a WONDERFUL friend to Robert...even though Rob is quiet and not "hard to get along with" but hard to judge cuz you think he's mad all the time when in reality...he's just being himself and taking it!! But anyway, I'm off subject...I remember telling Erik in my dream that I loved him so much for being such a great friend to Rob and for being there when we needed ANYTHING! Its crazy...right? Cuz in real life Erik and Rob and friends, yes...but in my dream, he was a "GREAT" friend of my husband...and I was very touched by that!
In my dream I had Robert cremated and Corky dug a hole below one of the greatest jumps in Oatfield history, the step up, and we placed my husbands ashes and his riding gloves in there...where he would forever his Favorite Track!

Ok...when I woke up I reached over and grabbed my husband...waking him up and I told him "you can NEVER die!" I was crying!!! He held me and giggled...but I'm not sure he has any idea how in depth this dream was...I don't even think I posted the half of it!! Just what I could really remember.

I have to say something to those of you that know us, you know that my husband doesn't "hang out" with us when we do our thing...he doesn't really wanna go places and do things we do...but it isn't because he doesn't like you, as some may think, or he's mad at you or me...Its just because this is who he is...a chill, mellow guy who LOVES to just hang out with his kids, chill in the garage, ride his dirtbike and love his family! He is my husband...and I completely ADORE him!! Please, just give him a will love him too!! =0)

This dream just made me don't really know what you've got until its gone! We need to take a step back from our lives and look from the outside in...realize what is important! Its not the material things that can be replaced! Its those you love and adore! Cherish them! They may not be around forever!

I've been having trouble swallowing and talking..I was told that I have a very inflamed throat, vocal cords and esophagus, and that I shouldn't talk for a week or so (YEAH RIGHT) but there are no new tumors as they suspected!

Bowling, Dangerous?!

So, I bowl on Friday nights and its fun! We hang out and have a great time. Last night was no different, except for the fact that bowling landed me in the emergency room! I went up to take my turn and while walking up there my shoe caught a nail on the edge of the lane and I went down like a Redwood in the woods! With a 13 pound bowling ball in my hand!! So here I am...whole body killing me! Wearing a sling, wrist splint and knee brace...with bruises EVERYWHERE!
All because I went bowling!
