Tonight I went to the local carnival with the family. I told Ann my t-shirt should have read "I'm just here for the funnel cake." Last year, the first ride Ann and John wanted to ride was the teacups. I thought, "Hey, this is a kid ride. No problem." After the teacups, Mom had to take me home and it took me 4 days to recover. When we were leaving this year, I told John, "No matter what I say, DO NOT let me ride the teacups." So, when he was in line, I jokingly asked if I could ride with him and he said, "Sure." :) It was fun to follow the kids around and watch their faces as they rode. Michael loved all the rides he was able to go on. And I loved my funnel cake. Actually, I was a little depressed watching everyone else ride because I miss being able to ride. But I refuse to chance the sick feeling I get just watching the rides. The one thrill seeking thing I like to do, and my body won't let me do it anymore. Sometimes it kind of stinks to get old.
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
