Beautiful Day:

So today was a beautiful day. We got up early, David, Douglas and Nick went to the range. I washed my car, and skipped on the beach after it poured on me. Then went to the grocery store with my parents. Went to David's parents' for lunch, and played horseshoes and croquet! I actually did pretty well and did my victory dance. lol. I did however step on a bougainvillea thorn, and it had felt fine until we got to my parents', where it then swelled up, stiffened, and made every muscle in my foot ache tremendously. Stupid poison. So now my foot will be mostly out of commission for the next week. :( Or at least, that's what happened when I got it stuck in my knee. Dinner at my family's was good. Now I'm sleepy. I'll probably catch a show or two, take a shower and head to bed. Then tomorrow we're picking up our mower from the shop, and maybe one from Meredith and Mike. Not sure what else the day will hold. Considering making a trip to Aldi for produce, but we'll see.

Finally Done!

Read a ton. Got a bunch of quizzes taken. Got 100's on all of the quizzes. Then took my test, and got a 90% on it. Yay! Now I'm just going to relax and watching some "Ellen". Tomorrow morning, (hopefully) going to the beach with Renee, Katie, and Dustin. David, Douglas and Nick are going to the range to teach Nick to shoot. Then at 3pm, lunch at David's parents' house for Memorial Day. Then later in the evening, cookout at my parents'. :) It'll be a good, fun-filled day.

Another Busy Day:

Mowing at Meredith's here in a few. Then more reading, and 5 more quizzes to take. Then a test. This is exhausting.

Scored An Interview:

By the grace of God, I applied for a Juvenile Justice position, and an hour later I got a call for an interview. Wish me luck!

Bad Day..

I called to check on the status of the job, and it's already been filled. I can't even get a job at Bagel World. This is ridiculous. Get a grip people. I'm willing to work for the same pay and have more to offer.

Hooray Color!

Home from the beach with Renee, Nick, and Katie. I finally am getting some color! Yay! Back again on Monday and can't wait! Now I'm home and going to try and get through some more chapters and quizzes. Then when David gets home, weather pending (stupid weather) we're mowing at his parents'.

Keep On Rollin..

Working hard on getting reading done, and taking quizzes. I'm ridiculously tired. Bleh.

One Quiz Down:

I took my first quiz of my final semester today. I honestly can't wait for it to be over. It's already stressful. Last night, David, the siblings and I all went camping out at Buck Lake. We almost got attacked by what we think was a hog. We had delicious hot dogs, and a lot of fun. We got home around 9am this morning, and crashed for a little while before David had to head to work. I spent most of the day doing homework, and taking my first quiz. I also applied yesterday to Bagel World, and am hoping I'll get the job. David applied for a higher position at work, and we're praying he gets it too. So please send your good blessings this way, we could really use them!

New Car and Job Application:

So we got my new car!

and tomorrow I'm going to go to one of our local bakeries to apply for a job. It'd be 7am-2pm, and pay $8-10/hr, so wish me luck! I also picked up my book for class today, so tomorrow I'll be doing a bunch of reading for my two final classes. :) I'm trying to be more productive.

We're Approved!

Yay! So today was a take care of things day. We dealt with David's bike to get fixed, dealt with the mower to get it fixed, called the Dr. to try and get their messed billing resolved from November still to no avail. Then we took my car down to Ron Norris, to see if we could get approved for a trade in on a four door. And low and behold, we got approved! So as of tomorrow at 10:30am, I will be the proud new owner of a 2008 Honda Accord EX. :) It's a four door that's a year newer, only 20k miles, multi CD player, mp3 reader, AUX input for my Ipod, sunroof, tint, lots of leg room, big trunk, etc! Very happy and excited. And to top it off, it lowers our insurance! So tomorrow we go pick that up, and then going to mow at David's parents' and possibly Meredith's, and then stopping by to take care of our passport stuff. :) It's a good day.

Home Again Home Again:

We had a great, long weekend in Miami! We met up with some friends and had a great time, ate great food, and didn't want to come home. lol. So glad we got to have a nice break though! Today starts the new semester! Wish me luck!

Just Kidding...

We aren't bringing them home this weekend, because once again they can't figure their stuff out and just make a plan. It's getting frustrating. We're doing a good thing. Respect it, grow up, and make adult decisions and stick with them. Agh. All I can say is thank God for this break. Between that drama, my ex family, no job, and my final semester getting ready to start, the stress gets overwhelming.

Miami Bound:

Just one more day until we head out to Miami for our mini-vacation! I'm so excited and can't wait. It's much needed. :) Then Sunday evening we're picking up Greg and Kira and bringing them back with us. Then hopefully next week, God willing, we will be able to trade in my car, and replace it with something a little nicer that holds us all (future carseats and all) and will lower our monthly payments. I just pray that the finances all work and they'll allow us to do so. Then Monday when we get back my classes start again. Tomorrow David is going to buy my final book for me, and then I start my final semester. I'm so anxious and excited. I can't wait for it to be over.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day mommy and Marj!!

So our sink broke...

Well, our kitchen plumbing to be exact...but luckily I have an awesome husband who I'm proud to say, learned how to do some plumbing today and fixed our pipes as well as replaced our disposal. :) Thank god for men.

And Renee's prom was tonight, and she looked amazingly beautiful!

Thursday, May 6, 2010


Had a great time at Seaworld, and came home to ridiculous drama, but glad to have cut the trash out of my life. I can finally move on and not have people constantly putting me down, trying to get me depressed again. I'm better than that.

I can't wait for school to be over with completely. New classes start the 17th, and while I'm nervous/scared about it, I'll be glad to get it all out of the way.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010


So tomorrow morning at 9am I have to drop my car off for an oil change, and David has to call about an issue with his bike. Then we're meeting up with our friend Mary, and going to Seaworld for a little while, so that will be nice. Right now I'm just trying to think ahead of what all I want/need to accomplish through the rest of the year.

Getting Ready:

So I'm working on getting ready for the next semester. Classes start the 17th, and this will be my final semester. I have two classes left, and I'm really anxious/nervous about it. But I can't wait for it to be done. My plan for the next two weeks it to try and get working back on my cross stitch. I've been feeling uncrafty recently so I definitely want to get back on a roll with it. I also want to try and catch up on my scripture readings.

Tomorrow Renee and I are heading to the beach, then Tuesday I have to bring my car in for an oil change, and then Saturday is Renee's prom, and Sunday is mother's day. The week is going to go by fast I think. I'm hoping to try and get the house cleaned up a little bit as well.
