A Half Written Post

The School of Life
1.  I got a notice in the mail today from the DMV letting me know that it's time to renew my drivers license.  Because I'm legally blind I'm required to take a behind the wheel test every two years.  It's a real blast let me tell you.  No matter how many times I take the test, I'm always a mess leading up to it.  In fact, between now and August I will most likely be a total wreck worrying about how my life would be if I wasn't able to drive.  Driving is a privilege, not a right.  Remember that.

2.  Sometimes you've just got to throw caution to the wind and live life.  One of Darren's college buddies is getting married in Colorado over the Fourth of July holiday.  We've been going back and forth on whether or not we should go.  Of course we want to, but traveling over a holiday is always so much more expensive.  We're still paying off vet bills blah, blah, blah.  It's kind of nice to just say fuck it sometimes and do the things you want to do even though you know they aren't the most responsible.  Here we come Denver!

3.  I'm spread too thin and I need to focus on me.  You guys, I know this is really abrupt, but I've been working on this post for the last two days trying to force something out and there's just nothing in me to give right now.  There's way too much going on in my brain.  Thoughts are swirling around like leaves in the wind and I can't seem to catch a single one of them.  I haven't been taking very good care of myself since we lost Poochie so I'm going to go and do that now. 

I hope you're all well.  XO 


  1. Oh, taking a driving test is very nerve-wracking--the memories are still fresh for me! I don't blame you for being nervous!

  2. Good for you guys for deciding to go to Denver! Even if it's expensive, I'd rather pay money for an EXPERIENCE than a material item! :D

  3. Yay...I'm glad you guys decided to just go on the trip! I think that is great. I would be so stressed about having to take a driving test...I have not taken the driving test since I was 16 and I had to take it twice. Make sure be taking care of yourself girly! I was really struggling to write my post and ended up in having to take a new direction.

  4. So glad you are going to Denver for the wedding! Make the most of this life!

  5. You only live once, make the most of it! I agree with the other ladies here, I'm glad you two decided to go away. It will be great!
    A half post is better than no post - we've all been there where you just stare at the screen and the words won't come.
    Good luck on your driving test!!! You're probably a much better driver than all of us, for having to take the blasted test so regularly. I'm sure I wouldn't pass it now.

  6. Enjoy Denver! It's on my list of places I'd like to visit.

  7. No matter what else is pulling at you, you have to be cognizant of self-care. Good for you. Hang in there friend.
