The Trip (prologue)

Thinking of a title is usually one of the hardest things about blogging. You want it to be catchy and interesting and sometimes funny. Thinking of a title was not a problem after this weekend, picking one was :) Such titles as 'The Mortician Stalkers', 'The Cowboy and The Morticians', '39 minutes at 28 thousand feet', 'The Party Bus Full of Balloons', 'Zero body fat', 'Guessed his age by feeling his stomach', 'Did you know the Pope died?', 'Snotty brat on the plane', 'Condoms at Albertsons', 'Hurricanes, Mind Erases, and Buttery Nipples... oh my'... The list goes on and on (literally - it's in my bag). I was jotting down blog titles in my hotel room and making metal notes the entire time we were out.

Let me start by saying that I had an absolutely awesome time in Dallas. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was not expecting all of these wonderful people to exceed every expectation that I had for them. I wasn't expecting that I would have NO down time at all because we would be having such a fantastic and jam packed weekend. I wasn't expecting to connect in so many ways to so many people in such a short amount of time! I wasn't expecting to cry and then laugh like I haven't laughed in so long all in the same day. I have so much to tell you all that I am hoping I can fit it all in the same post.

[note: I realized very quickly, while typing this story, that it wasn't going to be possible. I will get Friday in today, the rest I will try and add by the end of the day or tomorrow. I will put these in order when I am done. For now, I am going to post what I can when I can, so stay tuned!]

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
