I firmly believe God hooked John and I up because he is a goofball. He is silly, and uninhibited, and really really fun. I am not. I've always been very self aware, wanting to make sure I don't look more weird and silly than I already think I look. A bore right? Yes it is, I think in the last 7 years, and with the arrival of our 3 beautiful kids I am breaking more and more out of that mold and become more of a fun person. Today at the park for instance, I usually sit and read while the kids play, but today for some reason when we got there, I put my book down, checked out the equipment and told myself I was not leaving the park until I played on every single thing. It was a small park, but there was a slide, monkey bars, a climbing zig zag wall up to a platform, and a fire pole. I did them all. I almost gave up on the fire pole. It was high. I wrapped my legs around and hung on, and then quickly swung my leg back over to the platform, scared to go down. I went down the slide a bunch of times with Stella and then looked at the fire pole and decided to do it. I grabbed on and slid on down. And then I did it again and again until I wasn't scared at all. I'm proud of myself. John is a good influence on me. I know he would be cheering me on.
(I'm glad to be back. Our computer crashed, we are trying to get our files out of our old hard drive. Hundreds, maybe thousands of photo's I've taken are stuck in there. Ug!!. Thanks for your concern about the puppet getting me. I've made friends with him. He's really a nice little guy, I shouldn't have judged so quickly).
