My stoke factor

Getting married. Seriously, most in their lives talk about how "stressful" that period is in their lives. Al the changes, commitments, etc. None of that has scared me, nor has it stressed me. Alene and I are both 100% in agreement on how things should go. It's like we share one brain. In fact, she had a dream about me rescuing her from her network cable that had turned into a snake. That same night I had a dream about how she wanted me to catch a snake. I remember I could see myself over and over in my dream, grabbing the snake by the, ummmm, neck section? Then I remember in my dream, the feeling of the snake wrapping the rest of his body around my arm as I held him by the neck. It was cool.

Anyway, I'm stoked about my sisters wedding comeing up. This is a highly stressful week coming up, but I think I'll pull through. I have a couple of large assignments due, of the which one of them I'm avoiding (taking a break really) by posting some thoughts here. My sister is getting married this thursday. I'm taking the day off from work to be there (obviously) but to also help out the family with anything they need. I'm stoked.

I've been bored with music (as I've previously said) and almost don't care for music as of late. Silence has been really good for me. Not that I hate music, but I've just found that its nice to have some good silence to yourself. I used to be the type that HAD to have music playing in the car or I'd go insane. Lately I've found myself going to work and somehow my body avoids the habit of reaching under my seat for my stereo face to attach itself to the rest of the stereo and play some music. I just ride to work and listen to either my own thoughts, or humm along with the sound of my tires on the pavement.

Speaking of, I'm stoked for my new tires. I just got 4 new tires for my new truck that I stole from Tim. The truck actually had 3 bad tires and one of the tires, which was about 8 months old, was still pretty good so the dude at Discount Tire placed it on my spare for free. Now I actually have 5 good tires. That's pretty cool.

Speaking of again....My truck. I can't tell Tim enough how manly I feel to have a truck. It may not be a big "penis" truck (one which is big enough to fit all your horses, tack, and family in the front cab and requires a ladder to get into), it's a good 4x4 truck that will be fun to have when I go out and about in the local mountains.

Speak of out and about in the mountains. I'm going camping this week and I can't be more stoked. It has been FOREVER since I've been camping. I moved here with the intention of doing a TON of outdoors stuff. I used to camp a lot when I lived in Nor Cal, and I'm even closer to good camping here in Utah, but for some reason I've only been camping about 3 times in the 6 years I've lived here. Alene (my fiance), Caiden (my son), April, Bill, Lanik (Alene's sister and her family), and a bunch of Bills friends whom I don't know are all going camping this weekend for Bill's birthday. It's going to be done down in the San Rafael Swell area of Utah. It stretches from a town called Price, down to the infamous Moab. I've never done desert or red-rock camping, so this should be interesting. I'm bringing my mountain bike along, just in case I find a place to ride. Should be fun. I've never taken Caiden camping either, so he's stoked about it as well. It's funny because he has never actually been camping, but he still gets excited for it.

Anyway, thats about it for now. I'm just so happy in my life and I have a lot of it to thank Alene for. I honestly feel I am the luckiest man on this earth. She is so smart, amazing, and beautiful. She's my friend and someone I enjoy constant companionship with, but at the same time I'm crazily attracted to her. It's a good combination :-). Needless to say: I'm lucky.

Peace be with you.
