I worked early that morning and after work. Jamie and I went to a place where you can sell your name brand clothes that are in good condition. Then we were off to the races. It was so much fun. This picture is of one of the three race cars that Bill owns. This is the crate car that was actually bought for his son to race. Bill raced this one on Sunday. He started 4th in the B feature got up to first a caution came out with two laps to go and he got passed on the last lap so he got second which was awesome. In the A Feature got 14th place and he started 25th. Which was so awesome. I am so proud of you baby!

This is car number two of three that he owns. The third car wasn't raced this weekend. This is the 0K car also known as Tiffany. She has taken some crazy rides in the past couple of years. Boy had it paid off though. Bill started 12th in the B feature and he finished fifth. However they were only taking the top two in the B feature to the A or the main feature as some people call it. It was so much fun and there was a lot of good racing.


Friday night was so much fun. I got to hang out with a good friend of mine from high school. We had a few drinks to start the evening out and then headed out to Timber lodge Steakhouse for some dinner. After eating a very good dinner we were off to the movies. Pirates of the Caribbean 3. That was a very good movie! My sister spent the night which was a lot of fun.

Saturday the races got cancelled so Bill was home with me. Jamie ended up coming over also. While Bill worked on race cars Jamie and I went to the mall to shop for a while. Had a very good relaxing time. Then Bill grilled out steaks and potatoes for us. Jamie and I made salad and bread for dinner. It was so good.


The weekend has made me wore out. I will try tonight to do an update with what went on and pictures from this weekend. Today has been a very emotional day.

Standing there the wind blowing through your body you get this sense of relief, the shots begin to fire and next you hear the music begin. You try your hardest to fight back the tears but the sun appears and you realize its OK just let them go. They are at peace and not fighting anymore so why should you.

The above paragraph is everything that went on during the end of my friend Mitch's funeral. Before the gun salute started the wind was blowing but then when the taps began the sun came out and the wind was non existent.

Mitch was 58 years old, and a great guy that you could turn to if you needed help. He met Leslie up in Tekamah many years ago. The way we know him is through mutual friends and he owns a cabin in the same area as my parents do. They were there every weekend that they could and had a great time. He will be dearly missed but we all know he isn't suffering anymore.

Thank You

Thank you for all of your prayers. Mitch has went to a better place this morning. He is no longer suffering.

Mitch had a good day yesterday. He is responding to Leslie so that is a good sign. The bleeding has stopped. Please continue to pray for him.


I guess I need to explain something. I can sit here and tell you the whole thing of my relationship with my boyfriend but that would take way to long. My boyfriend is 11 years older then me. We have the best relationship ever. He has been married and he doesn't want to rush into things. We are both madly in love with each other. There has been a time when we had decided we didn't want to rush into things and make any mistakes. I get frustrated because I feel like we are ready to go to the next step but I sit back and glad we didn't. There is quite a few of my friends that have ran out got married and pregnant may not have been in that order but now they are getting divorced. I don't want to be one of those statistics the only statistic I want to be is the one where the couple grows old together because they are happily married and know who the person is. We are best friends and now the best couple because we have taken the time to know each other. I hope I didn't make you guys think he is a terrible person for what he said. It is his way to get me back into realization when I get emotional. I hope one day you all will met him, he is a great guy and you guys will love him just like my immediate family has.

UGH! I just want to go back to bed pull the covers over my head and be surrounded by all my pillows. I don't feel the best today. Today is the day I start back on my diet and gym. Lets hope it goes good again. I had a customer yesterday tell me that I look great and I was just like hmm I haven't been on my diet for over a week and I look great. YES!

Friday night my dad got stuck in a meeting longer then what he had expected so we didn't make it to our dinner and drinks. I met up with him for a little while. Then I met my best friend Tiffany for the evening. We adventured to the movies and seen Shrek 3. Yes I am part of the 122 million they made this weekend. I got home at 11:45 that is very late for me. I crashed hard. I didn't even hear my phone ring the six times that it did.

Saturday I spent the morning cleaning a little and then went to lunch with bill. Then it was girls shopping day, my two aunts Kim and Pam (my mom's side), we went to the new shopping area in Omaha. Its located at 72nd and hwy 370. Its called Shadow Lake, it was beautiful and a lot of fun. I didn't get home until 6:30 from shopping with them. I was so tired but I continued to clean when I got home.

Sunday I worked at the restaurant. We were busy so it was nice. Then I went to the hospital in the afternoon to spend time with Leslie. Mitch is doing a little better. His vitals are becoming better. Please keep him in your prayers.

Called in

The family has been called in for Mitch. It is not looking good at all for him. His kidneys have started to shut down. This is so sad I have been very sad about it. He is such a great guy. I feel bad for Leslie one day she is planning her wedding and the next she is getting ready to say good bye with a funeral. I'm hoping there is still a miracle but it just doesn't sound good. Please continue to pray for him and his family.

Happy Birthday!!

I know its not quite the 20th here yet but by the time Plummie reads this it will be. Happy birthday Plummie! Hope you have a great day and that you get spoiled!

Well its Friday! This week has been an emotional roller coaster mainly starting with yesterday. I've really sat back and taken a look at my life since everything with Mitch has happened. Makes me want to get married and have kids. Bill always says to me what are you in a hurry for. Well I have finally come up with my answer because I want to live my life the way I want to with you and do what ever our lives have in store for us. I just don't want to do it alone anymore. They were 2 1/2 months away from getting married and now who knows what will happen.

Mitch has started bleeding again so they are getting a neurologist in there to take a look at things. Hopefully they will get good news. The family needs the prayers for strength and whatever god has in store for him.

My weekend is pretty boring. Tonight I have a date with my dad for a while. We are going to some drinks and dinner thing at a place near my house. Bill is racing tonight in Onawa, Iowa and York Nebraska tomorrow. I won't be able to make the adventures with him this weekend. Which is a total bummer. Tomorrow my plans are to clean and catch up on a bunch of things around the apartment. Maybe even do a little shopping. Sunday is the same old thing work and then come home to prepare for the next week.

Update on Mitch

Went to the hospital during my lunch to see Leslie. Turns out Mitch had a hemorrhaging stroke. Which is when the blood vessel in your brain start to bleed and you go numb or something to that effect. He isn't responding to much. He is in a coma. He also had a blood clot now at the stem of his brain. Please keep him in your prayers. If he makes it through the weekend they will be able to start running test on Monday to see if there is brain damage or even activity. The next couple of days are very critical for him. He is a strong man lets hope he makes it out of this okay.


Please keep my parents good friend, Mitch, in your prayers. He had a brain aneurysm last night at the golf course and isn't in very good condition. Also please keep Leslie, his fiancee, in your prayers. They are suppose to get married July 7, 2007. We love you both and pray for him to get better soon.

I have fell off my diet so bad it isn't even funny. I haven't had the motivation to even go to the gym. I was so happy when I did lose the weight and was going to the gym all the time. Now I am so tired when I leave work I don't want to go. I have to get back into things. I have gained half the weight back. I will be so mad at myself if I gain it all back. My goal is to start back up hopefully tonight or tomorrow. Depends on how the weather is when I get off. I don't like my jeep outside if it a chance of strong storms. Call me a coward but who wants to spend the money on getting it fixed.

Well my vacation didn't go the way I planned. My boyfriend and I stayed in town instead of driving to Missouri. The weather was suppose to be rain down there and the roads up here had already flooded the past week so we thought it was best to stay home. I didn't go into work Friday since I was all caught up. Bill and I just ran errands, went to lunch, and then I went to Blair. While he spent time with his son. I celebrated Mother's day that evening with my mom because I had to work Sunday. Mom got two tickets to Tim McGraw and Faith Hills Concert in June. Dad also got that for Father's day. Hey knock two gifts out at once. We went to dinner after the graduation parties we attended for some of Mary's friends. I was so excited I got catfish from Kelley's fish market it is so good. I even have picky Bailey eating catfish.

Saturday, Bill and I hung out in the morning and then that afternoon I laid down for a nap didn't think I would sleep long. Ha I was asleep from 1 till 4:15. I wasn't to thrilled I slept most of the day away. I must have needed it though. Once I got up I went grocery shopping, and flower shopping. I got some pretty hanging plants for my balcony. I made dinner and made an apple pie. If anyone has any easy pie recipes they would like to share I would be interested or any dessert recipe. Went to bed since I had to be up at 5:45 am on Sunday.

Sunday, I worked watched the Nascar race and went out shopping. Didn't have any luck shopping until today. Anyways I hope everyone had a great weekend and happy mothers day.

No excuse

I have no excuse of why I was so terrible at blogging last week. I kept up on everyone Else's blogs. I just didn't really have anything to write about.

Life has just been the same stuff just a different day. I go on vacation this week to Wheatland Missouri with my boyfriend. That is if it stops raining. Otherwise we will be staying home. We have had so much rain the past week. The rain was suppose to continue into this week but the forecast has changed just a little. With this weather brings tornadoes, there was one that hit in Kansas really bad. It destroyed 95% of the homes in that town. Not a good situation. Please pray for those families there lives has been turned upside down thanks to mother nature.

I will try and be better at writing this week.
