You're Not Gonna Believe This

I'm crazy.

Ok that's not so hard to believe. Drat.

No, seriously y'all. I might be going on an adventure! :)

Me, my crutches, my wheelchair, a ton of potassium, lots of prayers, and Midori the Gyspymobile...just might meet up with a friend and carpool to Birmingham to attend Martie Duncan's Food Network Star Finale party on Sunday.

Traveling is difficult and often out of the question for me. My ability to do so comes and goes. There will most likely (ok definitely, if I am realistic) come a day when it is no longer safe or physically possible to go anywhere. Lord knows whenever I am capable of getting up and going somewhere, I do, because I cannot stand being stuck at home. In a perfect world, I'd be an RV'er...just me, myself, and I. That is how much I long to run the roads and see the country. Wishful thinking at this point, but I can't help it...I'm a dreamer. RV'ing is still on my bucket list (I'll share that on my blog soon, actually).

But heck, this is the 'Ham! Just five hours away, and my friend would be doing much of the driving. She is also a nurse and understands my condition better than most. We've been wanting to hang out for a while now, and this would be the perfect opportunity for us. We can sit and eat and watch TV and visit with some cool Food Network enthusiasts. Wow...this is crazy. But I am so excited about the idea.

I have a feeling my family is going to flip and say hell no, but I'm going to do this if at all possible.

Wish me luck, say a prayer, send smoke signals...whatever ya got! :)
