back from athens, missouri


Athens Living History Event, originally uploaded by gracefullady.

So I am back and all in one piece! I'm really glad I was able to still make this event. It did me a world of good to get away and relax with my buddies for the weekend. I was pretty stiff on the drive there, but on the way back it was all good. We weren't able to bathe in the Des Moines river, unfortunately, but otherwise it was a great time. The river was just too flooded and contaminated so we thought it better not to risk it.

This picture was taken of a picnic we put together for our soldiers. I'm on the left in the back with my friends Brandi and Mary.

I also want to say thank you for all of your concerns about my car accident. I really appreciate your comments. Hopefully pretty soon I will get back into the swing of things and be able to write more happy posts. I've got a lot of work to catch up to, but that is a good thing! I will just be happy to get my car paid off so I can start once again to save for another. Oh life. It sure is a funny thing sometimes.

More pictures on my flickr!


  1. It must have been a bad weekend for cars. Jim's cousin totaled her car this weekend, too.

    Won't your insurance pay you some money for your car?

  2. Yeah, I guess so! That's crazy!

    Insurance won't pay for my car, 'cause I only had the bare minimum insurance required. It will pay for the other guy's car I hit, though.
