Hello to my 14 Followers..lol
Hello all you followers of mine...how are ya'll doing today? I am sitting here trying to cool off ...time to wind down from a busy day. Tonight is church night, and sometimes I am in a run all the way up to church time and then get to church and crash...I'm gonna try to be rested before I get there tonight..lol. This heat will drain even the healthiest of souls, it's been near to unbearable to me. We have some at church with severe breathing issues and this weather is so hard on them...as I look out the window now, I see some clouds forming, hopefully they will bring some much needed rain to my poor flowers. I've tried to keep them watered, but by the time i'm done with all my flowers, I need a good soaking myself...(so I jump in the pool). I wanted to have a cookout tomorrow night, but it's still just too hot and humid even in the evenings to enjoy being outdoors...so i'll wait a few more days...by then, we may be in Hawaii...I say "may", cause we're not totally convinced we're going to go...we want to ...no doubt at all about that...but we both are so nervous about the flight we can't even think about it. I've been before, and (Thank you Lord) I did ok....(knock on wood)...but Tony has panic attacks. And when he does, he usually passes out and when he passes out, he usually goes into seizures...Yes...my strong, handsome, hardworking man is a wimp when it comes to certain things. Two things in particular....flying and needles..among other things, like gory stories...he has been known to have to walk outside at church during testimonies telling about accidents....actually, it is kinda a church joke...everyone looks at him when someone that doesn't know him comes to visit and testifies about something like this....Now he has passed out from getting a shot, IV....etc...and when he does, it usually causes him to have a form of a seizure...not like the epileptic type, but when he faints, his blood pressure drops so low it sends him into this seizure like activity and he has even flat lined before! Some scary stuff...let me tell you. I don't believe he would be any whiter/grayer than if he were really dead when this happens to him...it is very terrifying to me..I can only imagine what he feels like..lol..anyways, he doesn't do good flying either, and it's all he can do to make it thru a short flight to like, Orlando...but to Hawaii?????....he's just so nervous about it...but we don't want to not go either...and I can't really depend on Slick...he's got his hands full with his own issues...Crystal is VERY, VERY claustrophobic, Carter AND Caden BOTH have Asthma, and he's worried about all of them...what if one of the boys has an Asthma attack on the plane..what if they BOTH have one? He's gotta keep Crystal calm and her mind occupied so she doesn't dwell on the fact that she's in a pressurized aluminum tube, over the ocean, or land for that matter, with no way out....man, just typing this?...i'm making my ownself nervous! So needless to say, if we do all wind up going, we will probably be a sight to see by the time we get to Hawaii! Me and Slick will probably look like death warmed over from worrying about these guys, and they'll do just fine and be like movie stars coming off the plane looking for the red carpet...ugh..we'll just have to see!
