Right here, right now, i'll stand my ground and never back down...

That title comes from a song I just heard today for the first time, called Awake and Alive by Skillet. It's weird, they definitely don't come off as a Christian band in that song and I love the song, it's been stuck in my head all day and is repeating itself in my headphone as I am typing this.

Ah, the simple joys of sound waves reverberating through your ear canals :)

It's shaping up to be a pretty swell week so far. This weekend, I helped Jessica's mom move from her old house in Rochester to her new place in Stewartville. It was actually fun, got to spend the day with people I enjoy, got to drive a big U-Haul truck (yet again reinforcing my idea that I really can drive just about anything), and at the end of all the hard work I was paid for it. Not the most important part to me by any means but it is so rewarding to know that people value your help when the need it most.

I love feeling that I have helped someone in any significant way. Problem solving is probably my strongest characteristic. I'm a shoulder to lean on, i'm ears to listen, and i'm a friend to help :)

I can't wait for Tomorrow, I decided I am treating Jessica and taking her to her favorite place, it is in Pepin, Wisconsin and it is called the Pickle Factory, i've never been there before but I am all for finding new places and getaway spots, excited :)

Life rocks, just sayin' :)

Until next time... :)
