The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Just wrapped up an exciting weekend of SCUBA class and I passed. Made 100 on all the written tests and did every skill necessary to progress to the open water checkout dives (which I will do in 7 weeks in the beautiful Turks and Caicos islands). I told Chad that I think it is a major accomplishment that I only cried once and I didn't punch anyone in the face (especially the very lucky - or maybe unlucky? - instuctor that had to turn off my air tank underwater so I would know what running out of air felt like.) I have discovered that as long as I stay busy doing things that I don't have a problem with anxiety. It is when I get bored and have time to think that I have a problem. I have to go to the doctor and get cleared to do my checkout dives because of my migraines and prescriptions association with them but I have plenty of time to do that.

Check that off the list and now all I really need to go is find my equipment to rent and get my passport and I am ready to travel!
