One down. One to go.

"Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing." -Billy Madison

I only teared up a little when Derek left this morning. Ok...maybe a few tears got a away...but I wanted to make it as painless as possible for both of us. Sad day. Off he goes to college. BYU-Utah. Of course I'm happy for him. But I'll miss him and his quirky remarks...his fighting with Annie...not so much... I'd like to think that my brothers and I are close...I know not the closest of close...we didn't pour our hearts and souls out to one another, but there is something definatly there I'm gonna miss while they are off getting edumacated. I'll miss laughing with them...and at them. I'm sure they'll have stuff to share with me every once in a while...but you know...
I'm sure it will be the same when Devyn leaves in a week. And I'll write again when he does.
It's gonna be quiet around here...not to quiet...there are still 2 little girls which the world revolves around...if you asked them...Poor dad...so many girls to deal with...Annie has a long list of sports she's gonna do just to keep dad on his toes :)
I'll have school starting up at the end of next month to keep me busy...to keep my mind and fingers busy. Always have to be busy.
I'm really proud of my brothers, even if they are leaving me hear alone...I'll forgive them one day. I love them lots. And I probably don't tell them that enough, but I hope they know that.

a true miracle

For you that don't know, I work at a toll booth on the highway collecting money. this is how my day started. i had just gotten back from lunch i was doing my job when i heard a scream. i didn't even get a chance to turn my head when i heard and felt something coming behind me and crashing in the back of me. i felt it on my back and legs i froze and stayed calm while i felt like i was gonna die or something crazy bad was happening to me i found a way to slip out and came out calm and a work partner said 'hey come here so i went and was like what the heck happened i looked behind me and i saw a crazy big semi trailer had crashed in my cabin. people were freaking out thinking i was dead cuz they said there was no way i could of survived that. but i did. just look at the picture. crazy. so next day i went to church to say thank you to god cuz he was the only one that could of saved me from that.
