Without going into a lot of detail, my birth father and I have not had a relationship in almost 20 years. When my uncle (his brother) died 2 years ago, my father sent me a ring of his that I had admired as a kid. I meant to thank him a long time ago, but hadn't...not due to any animosity...just...busy.

While on my "summer vacation," I finally sat down and wrote my father a letter, thanking him for the ring and just giving a little detail about my current life. I received a reply this week that was also cordial.

My stepdad was my dad...he's been gone 4 years now. When he passed, my attitude was, "If I wind up having a relationship with my father again, that would be a bonus." Maybe that bonus is happening. We shall see.

I hope you and he both get your bonus. Tha's a nice story, syc.

I did 30 pushups today during my training session.


I haven't done a pushup since my surgery in 2012. Too injured, too fatigued, and most of all, too afraid of bringing on lymphedema in my right arm.

I owe it to my awesome trainer here in smallville, who trained me for my cowgirl ride in 2012 right before my diagnosis, and who is bringing me back to fitness now.

The heroes in this world don't necessarily make the news, but they should.

Shoutout and kudos and all hail to JOHN SUTTON SR, who has not only had my back through my illness and gotten me back on the road to fitness and health post-chemo, but who has done it all gratis.

Now I get to pay it forward.

You're absolutely right but there's too many of them. They're out there heroing every day, often with little recognition, no less thanks.

30 pushups is something. Seriously. That's no small feat. I bet over 95% of the US population can't do 30 pushups.

It's raining. As much as it's been nice lolling about in the pool (it's been hot and humid for really the first time this summer) I have been missing my rainy days. Please please please keep raining. Throw in some thunder and lightning if you can swing it. kthxbai

Gravdigr 08-22-2014 02:21 PM're confusing 'up' with 'in'.

I got almost 11 hours of sleep last night. Only woke up once in the middle, and fell right back to sleep.

And then this morning, I took my car with its new engine mount and bolt to the inspector, and got the satisfaction of telling him, after he asked, that I changed the mount myself for 20 bucks. (Didn't tell him about the broken bolt.) He said I saved $150 by doing it myself, and I paid him a buck for the re-inspection. He went on to brag about how most inspectors miss those cracks in the rubber bushing of the engine mount, and I made silent note of that. We'll never go back to him.
