Día de los Muertos:
I woke this morning at 5:00 after nearly 14 hours of sleep. My body aparently needed the rest. I did, unfortunately, sleep through November 1 and was not awake to wish everyone a happy Día de los Muertos. I hope everyone had a great day and celebrated those who are no longer with us in their own way.
I came with Mom to Oklahoma City to watch the girls for a couple days. It also gives me a chance to stop by Borders to ship some things to myself. I need to get out of here a little bit today.
I hate that I haven’t been able to visit with everyone I wanted to, but it is hard to squeeze everything into 2 weeks. I am really looking forward to getting back to Anchorage and to work. I miss my life, my couch, my friends, and the kibs.*
Call of the Wild:
Bradley’s friend is seriously considering moving to Alaska. He would certainly have a place to stay (my house), but I feel bad for Brad. John is his best friend and it would be nice to keep all of his friends close. Bradley is one of the best people in the world and I only want happiness for him. I really hope that John can find what he is looking for in life and remain Brad’s confidant and close friend.
On that note, I really need everyone to pray for Brad. He is such a generous and gentle soul who has really been dealt a bad hand in life. He is always up against the world and I really wish everything would be easier for him. I really want him to come to Alaska, but he needs to be near his kids. It is just another “between a rock and a hard place” kind of situation.
Happy Birthday, Travis.
