It’s been a while

Okay, I know it has been about 10 months since my last post, but I’ve just been too lazy to update or post anything.  But today I wanted to say just how special my boyfriend is.  He sure knows how to spoil me.  :)

It’s the time of year where the weather is turning cooler, the leaves are changing colors (HOORAY!), and everyone is in a happy mood because it’s Fall.  While yes it is cooler outside, it is not yet cool enough for people to turn on the heaters so instead, the air conditioners are still running.  That in turn means I’m just freezing cold all day long.  So today after church, after wearing my scarf all through service and then wearing my coat while working in the kids building, I went to my boyfriend’s apartment.  He heard me say I had been cold all morning, so while I was in the restroom (yes I know, too much information) he had water in the process of heating up on the stove and got a coffee mug and hot cocoa mix ready and had all of it waiting for me when I came into the kitchen.  Talk about a sweet man.

He then waited for me to finish running my errands today so I could join him and Moe (his dog) at the dog park later that evening.  It’s wonderful spending time with those you love and care about.

Does anyone else feel like Hook from Peter Pan?  Where the nagging tick tock noise from the alligator (or was it a crocodile?) is catching up to you?  Everyone seems to be getting married or having babies.  Is my life slowly slipping by?  Will it ever be my turn?  Do I really believe that God has someone out there for me?  Or do I just say that in the hopes that one day I’ll find someone to spend the rest of my life with? Why does it seem so easy for others to move away and it brings me so much anxiety at the thought of leaving my hometown?  Why do some people have to wait longer than others before they find someone to spend their life with?  Why are some blessed with multiple children and some couples can’t have any kids?

So many questions running through my head it feels like I could burst.

No Fear (okay, maybe just a little)

Just because something didn’t work out for you in the past doesn’t mean it will never work out for you.  This is something I’ve struggled with for the past couple of years. The thought that just because one relationship ended I … Continue reading

Or in other words, how are you so skinny? This question is posed to me a lot. To which I typically respond with “I don’t know.” Because I’m not a huge fan of healthy foods, unless it’s spinach, apples, bananas, … Continue reading

Quick to Speak

Have you ever said something that as soon as the words were leaving your mouth you knew it wasn’t the right thing to say at the time?  Please tell me I’m not the only one.

Tonight I said a few words that came across harsh.  I already asked for forgiveness from this person, but if I could only go back in time and just not say those words that person’s mood wouldn’t have changed from happy and cheerful to sullen.

I’m definitely kicking myself in the pants for those few words spoken too quickly just because I was getting frustrated.  Although, I know this person will never read this blog, I do apologize for being quick to speak tonight.
