Day 17 - Something That Made A Huge Impact

Day 17 - A picture of something that has made a huge impact on your life recently.

This here would be one of the main reasons that I have been MIA at The Endless Drama lately.

About a month and a half ago, Animal broke his arm trying on clothes (talk about lame! He doesn't even have a cool story to tell!).

While he was trying on a stack of jeans one night, he lifted his leg and got it caught in the arm of a chair. He tumbled over backwards, taking the chair with him. He landed palm down on his left hand and screamed. After Bear got home and looked him over, we decided I should take him to the ER. X-rays confirmed that he had broken both bones in his arm about 2 inches above the wrist.

This is where I need to point out that Animal is one of the most left handed people I have ever met. He does almost NOTHING with his right hand. This meant that he needed help with almost everything...from writing (he has an awesome teacher who did all of his classwork writing for him and gave us permission to write for him on his homework), to dressing, to eating, to basic bathroom functions. I swear he was more labor intensive over the last month and a half than he was as an infant!

Luckily, the cast is off and he has been cleared for normal activity again, so HOPEFULLY our lives can regain some semblence of normality again.

Day 16 - Someone Who Inspires You

Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.

For this one, I have to go with Tim. He inspires me on so many levels.

He is a marine who live and breaths that life. He would gladly do anything necessary for his country.

He is my best friend's husband and loves her exactly how she needs to be loved.

He is a father who puts his whole heart into his sons and is raising them to be wonderful men.

He is my husband's best friend and is the type of friend that everyone needs in their life.

And he is my friend and can ALWAYS make me laugh (a very important trait in my opinion).

Day 15 - Something You Want to Do Before You Die

I REALLY want to go on a cruise before I die! Superficial? Yes, but there you go.

Day 14 - Someone You Could Never Live Without

Day 14 - A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without.

Kimi and I have only known each other for 7 years, but I feel closer to her than most people in my life. I thank God every day for bringing her into my life and though we live WAY too far away from each other these days, I know that she is always there if I need her. I can't imagine what my life would be like without her in it!
