Happy 2nd b-day to me:)

Today is my birthday number 2 as my parents called it. It is still a big deal with my whole family and may be why I was so spoiled growing up. I'll try to make a long story short.

I was ran over by a car when I was 5. I had every bone in my body broke(except my right arm), surgery for internal bleeding, and I was pronounced clinically dead twice. My little dress I was wearing got hung up on the car and I was drug 75 feet on my head.(explains a lot)

The only things I have still from it is of course some scars, bald spot on the back of my head from being drug(lucky I have tons of hair)aches and pains, hips are aligned different degrees, voice sounds like a raspier Demi Moore, and a pretty good retirement fund:)


Still have Checkers the elephant!

Al Bundy stole this from me:)

What an amazing story! As a mom, I can't even imagine that happening to your child -- yeah, I'll bet you were spoiled, and I'll bet your parents were grateful beyond anything to be able to spoil you! I believe each of us is here for a reason. I'm grateful for your encouragement and your fun attitude on life. And I'm happy to celebrate your 2nd birthday with you!

WOW! Happy Birthday--you deserve to be spoiled. It's amazing that with all those injuries you are able to workout with the intensity and frequency that you do. I'll keep your story in mind the next time I start to complain about being sore.
