get inspired

The only thing that the girls are talking about is the trip to Egypt. Ambers boyfriend is now going. I think it is great for Sam to get out of this little town.

Then my mom called and told me that she is going to sign up and go to Egypt! Well that will be fun. My mom will have a blast with the girls.

I was sitting out back smoking a cig. I was so wishing that I could go to Egypt. Then Rusty walked out and he just looked at me. Here is what happened next.

Rusty: do you want to go to Egypt?

Me: it does not matter what I want. Someone has to take care of Ryan.

Rusty: that is not what I asked. I asked you if you wanted to go to Egypt.

Me: yes I want to go

Rusty: Then go sign up. I will take all of my vacation time and stay at home with Ryan.

Me: we can't afford for me to go to Egypt.

Rusty: we will work it out, just go to Egypt with your mom and your daughter. Just go.

I am going to Egypt!

I now have to get a job. No big deal, I have slung beer before so I am sure that I can get a job slinging beer again. I can do anything. I will do anything. I want to go to Egypt, so I will do what ever it takes to make the $3,500. I can do this.

I also want to get a job to pay for this because then the girls will see me out there working for what I want. I will teach them by example.

I have a house full of boys again. They ate a huge pan of brownies yesterday so I made some more today. I also made "trail mix". The guys thought I was crazy when I was mixing it up, but they are eating it up! You take one box of cheerio's, one big box of raisins, and a jar of sunflower seeds. Just mix everything up. It is sweet and salty and it travels very well.

I smell dinner cooking, so I am going to go see what the guys are cooking for dinner.

hey, I think this was neat for Randy to encourage you to go to Egypt, too.  I am sure you would make sure you really enjoyed it, and you are only young once.  I am all for it.  You can't imagine how I enjoyed my one trip to New York with my sister Margie.  The airline tickets were a gift from her.  My son and his friend found us reasonable lodgings in the East Village where they lived. We met my son Raymond and he gave us a tour of 'his' New York.  Then we took a great bus tour.  Gerry

So glad to hear things are all settled after the move and really excited for you about Egypt! I was there when I was maybe 25 years old -- what an adventure! Hope you have a great week. See you next weekend!

hi; dont' know if you remember me, but I used to follow your journal up until I abruptly left journaling in October of 2006; I'm back now, catching up on people's journals I used to follow. I am so thrilled that you get to go to Egypt! What an adventure that will be! I bet you will have an awesome time traveling with your girls and I think its neat your husband is willing to use his vacation days to take care of your son! Looking forward to reading about planning your trip,etc.

What a fantastic opportunity!  I'm glad you're getting to go and what a thing Rusty is doing for you!  I really love your setting the example so your children will see right in front of them that anything worthwhile is worth working for.

OK, I'm in tears now.  I'm so excited for you.  This is an awesome opportunity.  Thanks for forwarding the link because obviously I missed this and I read you daily.  I have no idea how it happened.  I'm glad you think enough of me to include me.  

May all your dreams come true,

Nelishia
