Full Circle

Posted in Uncategorized on June 27, 2012 by briannadiehl

Where to begin?

So much has happened between my last post, and the present.  For starters, I would like to wish a big “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to my little sister, Timyka, who has been making my life interesting for a whopping 17 years!  To honor her birthday, and the wonderful woman who birthed her of course, we traveled up to the James.  It seems as though we have come full circle, as my mom seemed as exhausted today as I can imagine a woman who has just given birth might feel.

My mom is VERY tired.  She is very medicated right now, and very weak.  She did say “Hi” to me, but that’s about all she could muster before dozing off.  But, most importantly, her counts are still rising.  It’s very hard to comprehend that my mom needs to sleep, I just want to wake her up and talk to her, but that is not what will help her right now, sleep will.  So as for now, we are just on stand-by and going up when we know my mom will be more alert.  We knew this procedure was not going to be easy for her, but it also isn’t too peachy from a daughter’s standpoint either, but I’m being selfish.

On a more personal level, I have had a very productive couple of weeks.  I had a week of training for my job at Americheer, it was a blast, and I made some awesome new friends! After a week of cheering non-stop, I was in need of a vacation, and that is exactly what I got.  After leaving work week, I stopped at the James to see Mom, and then the next day I was headed for NC!

I went to Holden Beach NC with the Davises and had a blast!  While everyone was sweating their butts off in Ohio, I was basking in glorious, 80 degree, North Carolina sunshine!  I had an amazing time, and vacation was just what I needed to recharge my batteries.  I even got to witness Hunter (my boyfriend’s older brother) propose to his lovely girlfriend (and my friend) Charli!  Talk about romantic… Way to go Hunter! Hehe.  But now it’s back to reality, and 100 degree weather…joy.

Luckily, I have a lot more to look forward to this summer.  With work, friends, trips to the James and to visit Emilee, I am going to be having fun while keeping busy, which is fine with me.  I can’t believe June is almost over, it has truly flown by!  Hopefully it slows down a bit, so I can stop and take a breather before it is time to go back to Otterbein.  But hold up, I’m going to stop myself right there, because I am by no means ready to think about school yet!

Yours Truly,
