Happy Thanksgiving all! Lots to be thankful for, I am everyday. I am SO thankful that I got a job and just in time for the Holiday Season ahead of us. I had my interview on Thanksgiving was a hit and my boss and I hit it off from the time we said hello :) Although it is a temp spot, I pray that it will open up into a full-time position and I will have first grabs at it. Enjoy the lovely food and festivities on this Thanksgiving Day and always remember to be thankful each and everyday!

Post 50!!! and Happy Anniversary

yep, title says it all :) post 50 and Happy Anniversary to me and my sweetheart! it has been 2 years now. we have had ups, down, happy, sad, crying moments, visits, and memories...and... i would do it all over again for him. new goal now is to finish up this Master's Degree so i can move out and well, have more time with him. long distance is hard. however, if you love someone, distance does not matter and you learn to endure and suffer for a while because it is all worth it in the end. i sure hope he still plans and wants to marry me. i miss him, i do, but will continue to be patient and prayerful. any and all advice is welcomed.

dose of energy!

today was such a lovely day. i got my does of energy that is supposed to last me until well...the end of the semester maybe, or at least until i see him again! that is right...i got to see my love. it is always such a special treat to see him and he really does give me that boost of energy and hope that all is and will be alright. he is so good to me. he bought me not one or two...but FOUR rings :) they are beautiful. they are my promise rings and well, what he does not know (until he reads this post) is that at least one of them will match my outfit at ALL times. WAHOO! LUCKY ME! he works hard, as do i too, but he works hard with work and being anywhere and everywhere he is needed...i feel that he is like a one man show, yet he does get it all done and still has time to say hello...DAILY :) while i just work hard on well...studies. i sure hope our visit, although short, gives him the dose of energy he needs also to make it through his football broadcasting season. until next time my love. in the mean time I will be "listening" out for you. I love you!

life...too much to write in this one post. i was due for an update. thank you to my one follower :) but blogging is for me to get my thoughts out. life is well life. ups and downs. mostly downs, but trying to take them as lessons and learn from them. that is best thing to do with downs right? people in Africa have no food or clean water. when i look at that and then look at why i am upset with things, does not make sense. i should count my blessings, be thankful, learn and continue to improve.

is it really getting better?

is it really getting better...we shall see. parents are still SUPER mad at me over a boy. there was at least some dialog but still, my own mother does not consider me her daughter anymore. I guess there comes a time where mother and daughter must go there separate ways and only be there for advice for each other and not how to dictate life. This will take time to mend, but I am growing a lot from this and learning to live as if i am by myself. i pray the decision i make are not those that will allow what my mother has been saying to be true...i do not think so, but one cannot see into the future only speculate. keep praying all and thank you!

ok seriously....

ok seriously...i want a baby. i am getting baby fever right now. i yearn to be a mommy and one day i will. sometimes i just want that day to be now. all of my wonderful female friends look so adorable with their baby bellies and ultrasound pictures. i want to experience all of that too. Heavenly Fathers time is the best. for now i will continue to be a "mommy in waiting".

I Did It!

i did it! i made an A in that class was looking like an A- :) phew. so the 4.0 GPA stays. so happy! rewarded myself with a couple of shirts i bought earlier from Wal-Mart on sale for $1.00 and a Faith Hill perfume on sale as well. i told myself i was not going to take these gifts until i knew I made the A and not the was my mini challenge. with Mother's Day well...tomorrow, i would have given it to my mom on top of her gifts already. ready to move on to the last core class before the internship! if i thought this law class was hard, i am not too sure how this math (biostatistics) class is going to be. good thing it is the only one i will be taking that quarter. i feel very blessed and prayers do work. i fell to my knees and thanked Heavenly Father when i saw the grade :) i guess not all UF Gators are bad (LOL) she had a heart. Yea me :) i patted myself on the back for this one!

ps...who still reads my blog? chime in if you do...thanks! may have to post the link on fb so you all know i have a fun and witty blog with hints of sarcasm thrown in.

Hello May :)

Wow! what a way to start the month of May. first off for me, i have finished 9 classes in 8 months. it was 2-3 classes straight for 8 weeks it for 8 months. i really pray that I make the 94, A which is what i need and not a 93 point whatever and stuck at an A-....i am so close, i would be really sad not to get it. this is where my faith is going to have kick in :) i am so tired. so ready for this break. so ready for the pool. excited about moving, at least i will be closer to the beach :)

then the news of all times, Osama Bin Landin is dead. our troops did it. it is great for our troops to have such an accomplishment under their belt. can you believe that Osama was only 54 when he died??? wow! i thought he was much older...just did. it is not a matter of politics at this point, though it will be come re-election time, but it loos like Obama killed Osama. i hope the birth certificate issue can be dropped for good now. not only did he show is birth certificate to the Americans, but now he has killed the # 1 most wanted person in America dead or alive. Obama in general has been really lucky with his term in arguing with that.

who would have thought all this would happen in the month of may...just 2 days into it. cannot see what the rest of the month has in store for us all.

Oh what a...

i wish i could say oh what a night :) but cannot right now. rather oh what a week. i just hate kerfuffles, i am not one that likes drama so it really bothers me. it has been up and down this week with everything. i think that it has died down and lessons have been learned and apologies have been said. i know he loves me with every fiber of my being.
lessons learned:
#1 don't tell anyone anything you do not want to get around.
#2 stop over thinking things. i tend to take a situation and think of the WORST case scenario with it and ASSUME that is what is going to happen in my life with it.
#3 learn to trust, not only by saying "i trust you" but also show it in action, by say not letting lesson # 2 be your train of though.
***it is Friday and i hope the weekend is good a good one. i have been lacking in school work due to my week, gotta catch up now that my mind a heart are beginning to feel a little better!

Well hello there...

well hello there March! so glad you are here! Although Feb. is a short month, it sure felt long. possibly because i had classes all through it that ended on the 27th of Feb. one week break then back to 3 classes again. i am down to 5 classes left for my masters. i sure hope it will all be worth it in the end. i need a job and to get out of my parents house. any ideas? i can do and learn lots! it is the only way i can see myself having ANY form of freedom. lets us not mistake this with me not being grateful, b/c i am, but i would like the rules to lax a little bit. btw, that gift for valentines day that i was supposed to get on the 14th of Feb. is still not here :( very sad Mr. Postman!

still waiting :(

well, i am still waiting on my v-day gift :( now we are hoping it will arrive this week. what is the deal Mr/Ms. Postmand/woman. on a brighter note, there are 3 lovely songs form my love on my fb wall. he makes me very happy and these do not happen often so when they do...i RELISH in them! oh, joined swagbucks too. so far it is really neat!

Love: swagbucks-check out the widget above to find out where codes are

Happy Valentine's Day and...Waiting... guessed it Valentine's Day! how could i end the day with out a post...right? i guess some may call it happy heart day, happy v-day, happy single's awareness day? what ever you choose to call it i hope it a happy one. seriously though, why do we feel the need to shorten everything? examples: merry x-mas, happy v-day, happy b-day, fb etc. way of life now i suppose. single awareness day, i am not a fan of. everyone has a special someone or something that loves and cares for them, it does not have to be a significant other. parents, grandparents, pets, siblings, aunts, uncles...oh yea, your friends, that hidden bag of chocolate (well, you probably love it, not so much it loving you or your hips and thighs) so no one should feel left out on Valentine's Day.

i took my bother for a little lunch on V-day after his class. it was nice and we got a free cookie out of  it! FREE is nice right? so my folks got cards, my bro got a gift in at school, and me what did i get? is the story. my sweet, sweet, sweet, dear love tried his best to make sure his gift got to me today (2/14/2011). no such luck. i am not worried about it though b/c i know he loves me and his words meant and mean more to me than any gift he could buy. he called me as soon as he woke up to wish me a happy v-day and tell me he is thinking about me and loves me...who needs a gift after that right? i do not, but my curiosity is getting the best of me and i would like to know what the gift was :) so with that, i am asking:

**Mr. Postman, please deliver my gift from my love to me so that i can open it like a Christmas present and smile in approval, then head to my phone to call and tell him i love him and the gift. also, if you get it to me soon, i promise my love will not get too upset with you or the company and not have to use his disapproval words with anyone. Thank you kindly!
 --*Still Patiently Waiting Woman*

overall, a good day and now back to the paper, lots left to do to finish out these last 2 weeks. I sure hope everyone's Valentine's Day was special! mine has been because i know i am being thought of and loved!

shameless secret

so here it is, my shameless secret...during the winter months i sometimes buy groceries and leave them in the trunk of my car. everything from soda cases and 2 liters to fruits and lunch meat. i figure with it being cold outside and my car being outside in the cold it is a "free refrigerator" right? please note that i do remember to go in and get my groceries out by the next day or so. i wonder who else does this?

Like: coupons
Dislike: writing papers...simply b/c i am tired and write about 3 500-1000 words papers each week. i usually go past the word count each time...opps ;) it will be over soon until i dabble into getting yet another degree :)

Hello Post # 20!

--well 20 blog post now. i know this is very little especially compared to those i follow who seem to have hundreds and even thousands of post. maybe one day as my life becomes more interesting i will become blog post happy.
--overall, i am ok. my folks still get under my skin, on a regular it seem too. i know they care and such, but still, let me be from time to time. i also think i am SO ready to move back out of the house...i i KNOW that will help out a TON.
--i hope to one day be all that i can be. i am still in the process as i am constantly in school all the time it seems. when is it going to end? hmm, since i still have my sites set on medical school...umm...NEVER! i enjoy learning about anything and everything. it is fun to me and there is so much going on out there to not explore. i just hope i can continue to juggle it all when i am a wife and mother...i just can't sit still :)
--recenty i have started a few of things. looking and collecting freebies, reading other people's blogs, working out basically on a daily basis, cooking, couponing, and organizing where i can in the house. i wish i got paid to do these things and basically for now being a "stay at home daughter"
--i will keep my faith and eventually i know i will be successful, become a wife, be a mommy, and save lots of money via couponing and be 100% happy in my life b/c right now, i am 60% :(
--i wonder who reads my blog from time to time? it is okay if you do it in secret, that counts too!

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I wonder...

i do not seem to understand folks, men especially. if there is something wrong, why not just tell what it is and have those who care for you and want to help you do so. if it was something that you did not want to talk about, why update your say...facebook status about it? you know people are going to ask you questions and want to know what is wrong/the matter. maybe it is an attention thing, who knows.

so far a decent day. i did 5 miles today. i ate well. i am reading my fellow students post and commenting and will get back to it... but rather i have been playing around the blog world :) opps :( i now have 40 blogs i follow...yea. this will make for some interesting reading on my free time! you all sure to have some fascinating lives!

Like: chocolate :)

These are a few...

You guessed it right...favorite things! i have been MIA in the blog world for a while...sorry. miss me much? i have been wondering what to post about lately and some days it is just hard, well, maybe just too personal to post. so i have decided to begin to post/list a few of my favorite things. the list will go on and on as new things become a favorite and others not so much anymore.

Favorite Things: books, my computer, mac and cheese, sweet tea, and of course my lovely Joshua!
Dislike: roaches!

Quirky ole Me...

not too much to say today :( on that note however, my do i have a lot of little quirks. i guess that just makes me unique. i just adore the single serve drink packets from crystal light or any sugar free brand really. i went through my purse and found a bunch! looks like i will be drinking more H2O after all :) also, it is amazing what one can find when one cleans out their purse...for you guys i guess it would be cleaning out your wallet, emptying your pockets or better yet... cleaning out your car. i love purses of any kind and i am currently on the hunt for a new one...on sale of course! i also love the Dollar Tree! so many little cute nick-nacks to buy, but i have self control and just look and only buy what is needed :) GO ME!!!
