What this Blog is All About - Our Life

We have started a blog. Why? To share our lives with the many family and friends who don't live near us. Seems over the years everyone has scattered. (Or rather, we have scattered) Shane's Family in Idaho and Ginger's Family in Wisconsin. There are also the wide range of friends, all over the country, we have made through TurningLeaf seminars. We thought this would be a nice place to keep the world informed of our lives. (Those who dare, anyway!)

On a Flight

I think it is the coolest thing that I can post a blog from up in the sky. Airtran has Wi-Fi and I won it for free both coming to Milwaukee and now heading back home. I have been working on this blog and have found it fun to play with the settings and to post the different things Shane and I have written to get the skeleton of it going. I am not sure how I like the links at the top to the other page. But I will keep playing with it and see.

My quick trip back was so awesome. I loved seeing everyone! And it was very cool to see the look on my Dad's face when he got to Josh's house today. The only downer to this trip is that my back has gone out. And i am not just talking a little. When i woke up from my nap Saturday morning (After taking the red eye in) I went upstairs to see India, Elijah and Emmie. I went to sit down and WHAM!!! PAIN GA LOUR! I was trying to play it off like no big deal but it has been a long time since I couldn't even sit down. i was so frustrated and was starting to panic that maybe I was going to be laid out in bed this whole trip. I went back down stairs to try and stretch it out. It helped a little but it wasn't until the Advil kicked in I felt relief. As the weekend went on the stiffness and pain slowly let up, but now I am conserned about this plane ride back. Sitting for this long is always a trigger.

Other than that.. I enjoyed the trip A LOT. I need to make more of them back. In about 14 months I should be in a much better financial situation to do that. I can't hardly wait.
