I'm not sure why, but I'm sitting here thinking about my life. Maybe I had some bad Mexican food last night or maybe it's the worship music I am listening to. Either way it's a good thing to look inside one's self from time to time. Life has not been easy. Waking up each day unsure of how my body will feel and if I'll be motivated to work on things. I have many dreams and aspirations. I don't doubt that I will accomplish them. Just some days are tougher than the others. At the end of the day I'd have to say I love my life. The fact that I can still dream would be enough. Every day I wake up I have the love of a strong woman that lets me know even if I don't feel good that day that it's okay. So Emily thanks for loving me no matter what. I hope to make you feel even half as loved as you do to me every day. I started writing this without any notion it would end up here. I'd guess it's just a reminder of how blessed I truly am.

Pay to play

Blago has been out of work for a few weeks now. I was really enjoying the whirlwind of activity leading up to his house from Illinois politics. On the morning news there he was again. This time the talk was about 2him going to throw some Illinois politicians under the bus. Also, he wouldn't rule out a tell all book. What I loved most was that our hometown minor-league baseball team the Joliet Jackhammers offered him a contract. The standard contract pays $800 a month. Hey, in this economy he should jump at the chance. Of course the last time he went the pay to play route it backfired. Maybe he should play for free!

Last night

Last night President Obama preempted one of my favorite shows, "How I Met Your Mother". So I was kind of bummed about that. But I watched to hear what he had to say. First off it was nice having a president "talking" to every one and not just having a dead stare sounding like a robot with no personality. He adressed the economy as every other time we've seen him lately. After his address he opened it up for questions. There were questions about the bailout plan, the war, and one question that I thought was a joke. What were the presidents thoughts about A-Rod admitting to steroid use? Are you kidding me? I think we have bigger things to worry about than that. I mean really, it's not a shocking admission anyway. But I will say this, the question made me laugh. So thanks to that journalist for breaking things up a little bit.

What a slacker

I have not blogged since the middle of the last month. I guess I just kind of got in a rut. When you're home all day every day you don't have that much to say. Here's what's been going on. Being as our wedding is eight months a way I've taken care of a few things. We found a trolley service that is wheelchair accessible. So last week I got in touch with them and sign the contract. So now we have transportation to and from our wedding. Also, an appointment with a local bakery has been scheduled so we can get our cake. And I think I figured out what to get my groomsmen. Emily already ordered one of her items for the girls.

I've had a couple of doctor appointments over the last few weeks. My sister Kim took me to both. They were just general follow-ups. My neurologist wants me to get an MRI this summer. I think we're just going to get a brain MRI once a year. Just to keep an eye on things and make sure there are no changes. That's fine by me. My ID doctor, Dr. A was the second appointment. Every time I see him it's kind of like catching up with an uncle. Nothing really to report there.
