Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

Its late here but since I had an internet connection and a bit of waking time, I thought I'd do a quick update and post a couple of family pictures I took tonight since its so easy to send things to and from my computer now.

The flight was pretty uneventful as flghts go. It was very painful, so having access o a movie was a great thing because it helped to keep my mind off of my leg and on other things. The only hard part was transferring from my wheelchair to the seat as they didn't have anything to help me. So I had to rely on my parents and sister to let me hop with them t my seat which thank goodness was very close. We propped my leg up, and I was good to go. Staying in one position was hard because it was so painful but I managed, and as I've been saying for a while, managing is the only thing I can do to make it through.

We came over to my aunt Carol's house and had dinner and then talked. And talked. And talked. Me and my Aunt's husband Julian got into political discussions which is always interesting. I like to discuss things with him because I like to understand how "the other side" believes. They have their beliefs and I have mine, and I think its reat that we live in a country where its ok to speak your mind about such things. My cousin Faye and her boyfriend also came and it was great to meet him; it must really be hell for the guy to meet new family ;).

And now I'm here. Its warm, as usual, but not too hot, and I can hear crickets outside of my windw, boring city crickets but crickets nonetheless. They're still nothing like the crickets we have in the south, but there's something charming about the hustle and the bustle of a city, and that I like. The fact that the desert has been almost totally destroyed annoys me though. Its been almost destroyed because there's still desert landscaping around and its still dry here most of the time. I will never live here though as its completely spread out and would be difficult for me to get here. I wrote many an entry last summer about it :).

Well I should go and post these pictures. Enjoy and I'll write more soonishly. We've got a big breakfast planned at my grandma's in the morning so I should get to sleep, something that'll be a piece of cake, and then look forward to tea, breakfast, and the long trip tomorrow.

I pick my lighting and bakground very carefully and thoughtfully. I'm glad you noticed :))). Sorry you can't get the phone posts to work, and sorry I have to make them, but there's no way sometimes to post and keep people updated. Hope you enjoy my last three entries which I posted in bulk. Lots of reading material for those who have time/energy to read.

Excellent pix! Man, it seems like you have such a wonderful and supportive family. That's always a good thing. I try to remember to thank God every day for mine, as they are also so supportive and even doting toward me. When I attended the Indiana School for the Blind, I came to realize very quickly that not all families are like that. Many of the students there had pretty, well, I'll say it, sucky home lives and rarely even wanted to return to their homes on weekends or for breaks. You're family seems so cool.

Most of the time, they are cool :), but yes, I am very thankful of my family. They are very supportive and helpful to me in times of hardship
