I find myself saying this more and more, but "I can't believe it's the last day of November already!" I'm duo-twin-blogging over at Boys Are So Ugly But So Cute over the next few weeks so be sure and check that site out too.
Tomorrow is World AIDS Day. I have struggled with a post for the last several weeks. I was going to post a follow up to my story from last year....but I'm not quite ready for that yet. So, because I believed so much in my post from one year ago, I'm going to ask you to join me in reliving it. It's a mess, folks...this AIDS deal. It's been politicized, religiousized and a bunch of other "sizeds" that it just doesn't need to be. To my buddies who struggle, I send you all that I can....my wishes for peace, health, and better days ahead.

"Oh yea, he's a great guy," they would all say. And he was, that's for sure." READ THE REST OF IT HERE.
Next week is going to be a very tough week for me. We'll be in Boise for my sister's court sentencing. I don't think I can cry any more. Or lay awake any more nights. But you will see a video dedicated to her coming out the first part of the week.
