Hey  y’all! So today is Mother’s Day, and I just wanted to say how grateful I am for my own mother. She is the kindest, sweetest, person I know who will do anything for our family. And even strangers for that matter. I was having a hard time today after getting some advice/news last night so she came in to cheer me up. And I was being the usual uncooperative brat I am and told her that I didn’t care if she loved me or not. She just proceeded to tickle me, laughing about how she doesn’t get to do it anymore. And then kissed me on the cheek and told me too bad, because she was always going to love me anyway. She’s the greatest.

Speaking of great people, this Friday was my AP European History test and it was LONG. 6 HOURS long. And by the end of it I was exhausted, but 3 fantastic people picked me up for our plans! My mom (again), my best friend Lauren, and her mom. We went and got pedicures (I got this really cool copper color with a black flower), ate dinner at Applebees, and saw Captain America Civil War. I had TONS of fun.

Then on Saturday I went to my brothers basketball game, Bex’s birthday party (we got in the hot tub and it felt GREAT), and then went to my dad’s cousin’s wedding reception. There we talked to one of his relatives, who is SO SO kind. She has fibromyalgia and was talking to my parents about my pain and symptoms and it sounds like that’s what I have. We’d already talked to a neurologist who said that it might be a possibility so the next step would be going to see rheumatologist.

I’ve kind of been in a bad mood ever since because there isn’t a cure for it, and there hasn’t been much research done. I guess I’ll be doing a lot of that from now on. Apparently my parents have been too.

ALSO something sort of exciting, I start training for Little Red officially this week! If you don’t know, Little Red is the all women’s bike race I do that raises money for breast and ovarian cancer. It’s sooo much fun and I was so proud of myself for riding 100 miles last year. I can’t wait to see what this year brings. Wish me luck!

Love y’all so much! -Aspen AKA The Author
