Last first day of school

School starts tomorrow. I'm nervous. There is a lot to do before I can graduate in December (April ceremony). I'm glad I've got my husband by my side. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Before I start blogging I often think about how many people will comment on a post, if I post it. And I realize probably 1, or none. But it doesn't matter. This is my way of writing down what is happening in our lives. And I want to be able to look back and remember. So there.


I've figured out that I usually eat junk food
1 when I'm bored or
2 because it tastes so good

But I need to stop prevent this from happening.
I need to find treats snacks for myself that are good for me.
Like peaches off of the tree in our front yard.

We've eaten fast food a few times in the past week.
Because I don't get home from work till like 8 oclock (maybe 7:30 at the earliest).
And I'm just not in the mood  to cook.
I'm in the mood to eat.
And then cuddle with my husband while watching a movie or tv or playing video games.


School started today for my sweet husband.
He's taking 4 classes and going to continue working 40 hours a week.
What a stud.

I start school on Monday.
I start my internship on Tuesday.
I'm supposed to do 12 hours a week for it.
And work 12 hours a week.
And take 5 classes. (= 15 credits.)
I shouldn't complain.
But if its too hard...
and if this pell grant/student loan comes through...
I might not have a job for the rest of the semester.
At least I got the afternoon shift, which is the easiest of them all.
But also this shift takes away any time that I may have done HW on those days.
So we'll just see.

I think the deadline to apply for graduation is Sept 13.
That's so soon!
I should talk to a counselor soon probably.
I'm really excited to be done with school.
The idea of being done in September (and my wonderful husband) are the two things that keep me going.

I am really excited for my internship though.
I wish it was paid.
But its not.
So, I just pray and hope that interning here will be
1 good for my resume or
2 a good way to get hired there in January.


I'm really excited at the idea of not having work.
Especially because I work in food.
Working in food makes me not about what I look like.
Because I just get grimy and stinky and greasy while I'm there.
And I feel bad for my poor husband because he picks me up from work,
and I smell like french fries and I look like a rat.
So if I don't work then I can dress up every day.
And look professional for my students.
(Yep, I'll be teaching my own class by the end of the semester)

I'm excited for the future.
For whatever happens.
Come what may. And love it.


Ps. Nate and I have been married for 2 months today.
Its been the best 2 months of my life.
And I'm falling more in love with my cutie husband everyday.

I worked a 14 hour shift yesterday (5am to 7pm) and 11 hours today (5 to 4) and I am absolutely exhausted.

I definitely don't recommend it.

At least I'll get over- time hours this week (that means time and a half pay) BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

This is so great! I'm blogging from my new iPod touch.

Today is my birthday and of course Nate totally spoiled me, again. He gives me 2 presents and then surprises me with another. He even made me a cake and some ice cream too. When we came home from dinner the kitchen was even decorated and there was a vase of two dozen long stemmed pink roses.

How will I ever live up to everything he does for me when his birthday comes around?

Lake Powell

On Thursday we are headed down to Lake Powell. We will be able to enjoy about 3 days of its glory, while also enjoying time with my parents, Janthony + Z and the D&D clan.
This is absolutely one of my favorite places and I am so excited to go back and relive our annual summer vacations of my childhood days.
I'm excited to tube mostly, but I think I'm going to try water skiing again as well. And Nate is really excited to fish and hopes that we catch some big bass.

Can't WAIT!

School, Marriage and Work

So school is starting up in a few weeks- the stress level is rising dramatically. I have to say that it does not feel nearly as stressful as it did before Aimee and I got married though. Knowing that we have a nice and quiet home to come home to after a long day of work and school is very calming. I am thrilled that we have a nice little office with two desks that we can both use and pretty much have our own private little library to knock studying out in. Oh yeah- did I mention how great it is having a beautiful wife that makes me a better person and encourages me to do my best? Yeah, I am more than ready for school to start with my wife at my side :).
