I felt like miraculously Saturday and Sunday I was blessed with the "Get out of Jail Free" card.  I flew from Phoenix arriving in Milwaukee at midnight to surprise my best friend who had her third baby on Tuesday.  The bundle of preciousness was home from the hospital on Valentine's Day, and I got to see her at less than a week old.  So instead of "talking" because I am frankly too tired to form decent sentences, thought it best to show a visual of those two days...none of this would have been possible a year ago.  But that get out of free is not forever, there is always a wrong roll of the dice that puts you back.  Despite the emotionally meltdown of the intense fatigue, body aches, foggy head that arrived on Monday...I picked myself up and relished in the fact that for two days, while they were not with out speed bumps or filled with perfection, I felt normal and it was extraordinary.

Not the whole game..the 6 second running through the dome!

4 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds...

This is a "normal" weekend for my friends and family, one I often just hear about or attend with such effort "I" am not really even present, just a body showing up trying to make it until the end.  These every day events make up moments, and these moments make up a beautiful life...two days...the normal being anything but normal.
