live from phoenix, az

as the title indicates, this blog is coming to you live from phoenix, arizona. i’ve been here since saturday, enjoying christmas with the family. it’s really nice and pretty here- sunny and warm (think 70 degree weather) and any place that you can find mommy, the sissies, my lil bro, and the general (aka my stepfather) is alright with me.

christmas here was great. we went to church, then came back and opened some gifts. as i said before, it’s not really about the gifts so much as it’s about spending time with the family. the sissies and the lil bro are HILARIOUS and they are growing up so fast. pretty soon they’ll be doing the college search, and to the general’s and mommy’s delight, getting up out of their house. time flies when you’re having fun. one thing i have loved about being here is being able to eat all of my mommy’s food. she’s been cooking it up this week- chicken, ham, casseroles, mac and cheese, veggies. trust and believe, i’ve ALREADY started looking into the workouts that will be necessary to get the swimsuit physique.

being here has also given me time to think about the things that are really important to me. 2005 has been an awesome year, filled with so much more than i ever expected; and i know that 2006 will be even better. i don’t generally deal in regrets because i believe that everything that has happened has been fashioned for some purpose. however, i know that for 2006 i’ma do a better job of keeping in touch with my friends. it’s been rough feeling/falling out of the loop with friends, and even more difficult trying to get back in. it’s all good though…it’s gonna be a new year and GOD will be doing a NEW thing. i’m excited.

so…perhaps i’ll write more later. or maybe i won’t. either way, be blessed and be encouraged! peace and blessings…

  1. dude, it’s kinda wack that you was in the PHX and didn’t holla at a bro, but it’s kinda real though too, I guess. It’s not like we talk like that, nor was I even here, but I think the unwritten rules of high school’s infamous K.I.T. is whenever you in somebody’s city that you know, you supposed to say something. If you ever around again, holler. CarmS’ll probably be here by then. Be blessed.
