Apologies and Information

Whoo… I can’t believe I haven’t posted since September 😦 I am SO sorry…

Of course, a lot has been going on and getting on here to post hasn’t been the first thing on my mind. Obviously.

A short run-through of events? Sure!

Got hired at a clothing store in July? Check.

Attended AMAZING Alice Cooper/Motley Crue concert with my parents and Jarrett in October? Check!

Started working as a substitute teacher in our area in November, so I left the job at the clothing store? Check!

Had several doctor appointments and our 4D ultrasound? Check!

Started planning my baby shower (because I have control issues and want to make sure everything is done the way I think it it should be done)? Check!

Began planning my vacation to Branson, Missouri with my parents for the few days before Christmas? Check!

Work, work, work? Save money, save money, save money? Check!

I really have been up to quite a few things over the past couple of months. Finding and getting settled into a decent job that will actually keep bills paid, etc. has been more difficult than it should have been. I have an awesome work history and all of that, but most people in my area can’t afford to pay me what I should be being paid. That’s pretty stinkin’ lame. Therefore, I moved into an all new field of job. Hopefully this will prove fruitful. I’m not a fan of 100% relying on Jarrett.

As of tomorrow, my baby shower is one month away and we will have a whole crap ton of stuff to do. Technically, my mom, Jarrett’s mom, and my mom’s best friend are “throwing the shower for me”, but that doesn’t really seem to be how it’s going. Like I said above, I have control issues, so I want to make sure it all goes the way I want it to, haha.

I know this didn’t really say too much of… Well, anything, but I do have to end this here. I need to be getting to bed since I have to wake up at 6 AM to be at school at 7:30 AM. Another long day of children with bad attitudes 😛 I am working at my mom’s school though, so I’ll get to spend my lunch break and “prep period” with her. That’s always a nice perk.

I hope everyone has had a great autumn so far! I’ll leave my favorite of Bodhi’s 4D ultrasound pictures at the bottom so everyone can see it 🙂




The Perfect Morning

The first thing I want to do in the morning is soak in a wonderfully scalding, bubbly bath with… Candles that smell like honeysuckle, or maybe gardenia all around the room. I want to sip on a glass of my favorite moscato (which has an incredibly Italian name that I can remember how to spell at the moment), while I squeezed my eyes closed and listen to the Civil Wars, or other similar mellow indie music.

I want to relax. I want reflect on the day I’m about to have, plan it all out in my head so I feel like I’m in control. That’s important to me, being in control. It seems like everything has been crazy lately and I’m just exhausted. I don’t micromanage, that’s a promise, but I really do enjoy having a plan and doing my very best to stick to it.

I want to… Sit on my hugely comfortable couch in an incredibly soft sweater and drink an enormous mug of overly-sugar Earl Grey tea (instead of coffee, I’m a tea kind of lady). I want to spend my early morning watching a terrible romantic drama/comedy on Netflix instead of being productive. I swear, by 11 AM, I’ll be doing my “chores”, but… Mornings are for enjoying sunshine, those last couple of minutes on the cool side of the pillow before you get out of bed, and those comfortable “I’m so glad I woke up beside you” hugs.

This entire… Gaggle of nonsense was birthed by a plate of cantaloupe that I had as a snack at 1 AM. I don’t necessarily know why. I was also watching this cute little romantic comedy called One Small Hitch. I would recommend it to any lonely, or ridiculously happy-in-their-relationship female.

It is now 2 AM though, my movie has ended and I’ve turned on Roseanne reruns. I feel like it’s probably time to try and sleep. I’ve tried before. It didn’t work then, probably won’t work now, but I’ll try anyway.

Goodnight, all!
