About Me

My photo
What's up everyone?!?!?! My birth name is Elizabeth but most of my friends and family call me Liz. I'm from good old Iowa and have lived here all of my life. I am a very outgoing fun loving gal. I'm the type to be up for anything and i LOVE to laugh! My dream is to get my very own hog... not the animal hog but a Harley hog and I can now say that this dream has finally been achieved!!!! There is nothing like the feeling of hitting the pavement with the wind blowin' your hair a mess. You get to see and experience so much. No air condition, no radio, the wind in your hair, watch out for those bugs they can give ya a lil sting when they hit ya at 70mph. Elvis Presley once said Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine! I love that saying... Well stay tuned to hear some of my experiences and stories from the wide open highway! Always remember keep the paint up and the rubber down : )

     Well i have been riding my bike for about 4 weeks now. I have come across a few things that i really enjoy about it and a few that really BUG me...
Lets get the bad over with... Well i do not have a windshield and that doesn't bother me but man those bugs can really hurt when ya hit them. I have gotten pelted quite a few times and once it even made my cheek bleed a lil, not a lot just a tiny lil scratch. I guess my worst bug story so far would be from last Sunday. We were out for a ride and i was following my boyfriend and am trying to get better at staying closer to him. Well all of the sudden a bug of decent size flew up my nose then proceeded down my throat! I instantly started gagging and about puked. I was trying to spit the son of a gun out and everything. We get to a stop sign i put my bike in neutral and told him just a sec with drool & slobber all over my cheek and shoulder proceed to try to puke the lil bugar up! He just starts laughing at me and asks what happened. Oh that was horrible and hope it never happens again! Then yesterday i rode my bike to work for the first time. I work in the big city of Omaha, NE. I was a little nervous but i did pretty darn good if i do say so myself :) Well on my way home (about a 45 min. trip home) i was just about home and was cresting a hill when a dumb bird flew right in my path, thank God it just hit my headlight & handlebar area and fell off to the ground. I about freaked out! I'm glad it didn't hit my body or face or something, i would have really freaked out! LOL Well those are actually the only two gripes i have. I know you all are pry just going to tell me i need a windshield LOL, but it ain't cool LOL ;) I will invest in one eventually im sure :)
Now for what i LOVE about riding. I just love the sound of my pipes, the wind in my face, the freedom you feel when you ride, the thrill of the ride, the funny looks you get because i am a girl riding a bigger bike lol, and the anticipation in every turn or swerve of the road. Some might think i don't know what im talking about and frankly i don't care once you ride your own then you will understand. I guess you gotta live by this:

So don't fear dying fear not living and this is how im living.... Let's Ride :)

Busy Busy Busy....

Hey there everyone! I am so sorry that i have not posted anything for the last few months... Well actually since last August! OMG can't believe that it has been that long!!!! I am horrible :(

Well i will try to do a quick summery of the last few months.... Not much has really went on except one thing. Beginning of December we found out my mom had 2 tumors on her brain. We were first told that she had brain cancer! After further tests we found out the were no cancerous and a relatively easy surgery. It was still not an easy journey. We had noticed something was not right with mom for a little while now. She was not communicating very well especially for only being 59 so we took her to the doctor and he ordered a MRI. That was on a Thurday she had her MRI on Friday and right after the MRI the guy told us to go to her doctors office he was expecting us. That is when we were told about her tumors. He admitted her right then. There was a ton of swelling in her brain from the tumors which was causing her communication problems. He gave her some stuff to help reduce the swelling and she was scheduled for surgery for Monday... She was all prepped for surgery they took her down and ended up having to reschedule until Wednesday (12/12/12) because the machine they used wasn't working. So we just had to wait some more. Well the surgery went great she ended up having to stay in the hospital for about another week then was released to go home. Man it was like night & day after her surgery. Mom was back to normal, well almost. Her speech had gotten a lot worse but the doctor said it would get worse before it got better. Each day it got better and better though. It has now been 6 months and mom is back to work full time she had her 60th birthday in February and has totally the same old mom as she was a year ago! I am so thankful for that!
