8 years...

today is our 8 year anniversary-does NOT seem like 8 whole years have gone by at all.

8 years ago this morning i was hit by a semi-truck on the 101 in southern oregon on my great trek northward to live with my brother (& N). I had to haggler with the tow guy to help push up my back fender so i could continue my drive. we went to his creepy house, but i'm pretty smart and had my uncle on the phone the whole time so he knew what was going on and kind of where i was. the guy helped me become drivable so off i continued.

keep in mind i'm in a Geo Tracker (soft top) with all my earthy possessions. the accident cause a giant rip to appear in the back window. had to stop off every few hours to re-tape a plastic bag over it-so nothing else would fall out! the snow started in seattle, much to my amazement it actually stuck! just my luck. i managed to make it to the casino about 15 miles outside B-ham. i had to call AAA for a tow at that point to the house. the car was not drivable (in the snow). the guy was really nice and took pity on my i think. sometimes it does help to be a girl.

made it up to bro's house & we've been together ever sense. there is a much longer and better story behind our relationship, but that's for a psychologists couch. LOL

I love you so much!! I'm so happy we're together (finally) :) Thank you for loving me.

I think you make a wonderful couple. In the hours I was there, I felt like I'd known you forever. You are both very laid back and accepting. Tim sure took to you instantly! That says a lot.
