Tomorrow starts my last 2 days of work. It hasn't sunk in, yet. I think I don't really have time to process stuff right now. I'm leaving work, moving, and going on vacation all in one week. Moving to Kentucky hasn't sunk in either, and probably won't until I get there. I am so excited about all the changes! It is stressful, but not the bad kind of stress. And yes, I cry easily right now. I tend to do that when stressed. But it makes me feel better.

I'm not really worried about anything in regards to moving, except losing my friends here. There are some I've known a looong time who I know will always be here. There are others, though, I'm just not sure about. I know God will send me friends in Kentucky, and I plan to get involved at a church there as soon as I move.

Even though I have one worry, I am filled with so much peace and hope about everything. I know God will take care of it all, and I am trusting him. I appreciate you all praying for me the last several months.

And speaking of prayer requests...I had asked you guys a month or 2 ago to pray for my friend Tommy to find a job before his job ends on Tuesday. Well...he started a new job last week!!! So that means Karen, Kasey, Tommy, and I have all gotten jobs because of God hearing and answering your prayers! It's really cool, if you think about it. Thanks again for the prayers, and don't you dare quit praying for me! :)

I am pretty sure...

...that Jon and Kate don't get it. They don't understand that your spouse and your marriage come before your children. I'm sure if those kids could choose between all the toys in the world and having their parents happy and together, they would pick the latter. And...Jon and Kate haven't mentioned God at all.

Watching their demise saddens and scares me. Of course I don't know the whole situation, but I feel as though Kate is playing the victim role and trying to blame Jon for everything. She tries to act like she only thinks about the kids and Jon only thinks about himself. At least she seems to be remorseful for her years of being so hard on Jon. And at least she wants to save her marriage. Sigh. This is all just so sad. What's funny is...I'm worried about people I don't even know.

I guess all we can do is pray for them.

Banana Bread

Monday starts my last full week of work. I haven't really been thinking about it. I move back into my parents house probably next weekend. Then the next weekend I leave for Alaska. The weekend after that I come home from Alaska. And the weekend after that I am probably going to visit a friend. It's a busy summer, just like I wanted.

Last night, I made 2 loaves of banana bread for my bff. (He had some extra bananas and it was enough for 2 loaves, so 2 he got). He said it was really good. Today, I made 2 more loaves of plain banana for my dad, and one for Liz and me. It turned out delicious.

I slept til 11:30 today, but could still take a nap. I've been curled up on the couch watching free movies on demand. I need to venture out later to get my dad's father's day present. Mom, Amy, and I already bought him a few little things but we found out he wants an ipod. So, I will go get that tonight.

Did I mention I got my nose pierced? My mom likes it. Dad hasn't seen it, yet. Yes, it hurt. Yes, I like it.

Ok...time to get back to the movie ("Dan in Real Life").

Have I told you lately...

...that I hate storms? Because I do. A LOT. Please pray that the storms dissipate before they get here. Please, please, please. I hate storms.

Oh Monday...

It has been a long day.

After work, I made some delicious pasta. It took me a while because I am not a whiz in the food prep department. I am more of a throw stuff in the mixer then pour in a pan kind of woman. Chopping and such is not my forte. But, I did have fun and the pasta turned out really well even though I had to modify the recipe a bit. Richie liked it a lot, and I sent most of it home with him because I could never eat all of it. Now, I am headed to bed. I've got the headache I get when I am tired. That usually means I sleep well.


Oh...and my injured fingers are actually doing really well. One is still swollen, but they don't hurt too much. Yay.

Sunday, not fun day

Today I shut the car door on my hand. It was bizarre when I turned to see my hand in the closed door. I couldn't feel it. I got inside the church (where I was working), and the pain hit me, along with feeling sick at my stomach and lightheaded. Yuck. Put some bandaids and ice on my fingers. They're much better now. I didn't cry. Yes, I wanted to.

Next, a baby spit up on my foot. It was all over my flip flop and between my toes. Gross.

And finally, I made some roasted (red) potatoes for lunch. They are currently my favorite thing to cook because they are easy and yummy.

Time for a nap!

So every day this week I have come home from work and crashed. I usually only sleep a half hour to an hour, but yesterday I slept 2 hours, meaning I woke up around 7:30 p.m. Today, I took the afternoon off and slept from about 2:30-5:00. I have no idea why I am so tired. I went to bed late Saturday night and was busy all day Sunday, so maybe I am just trying to get caught up. Who knows?

My roommate STILL isn't home. I haven't seen her since........last Friday or Saturday. I miss her!

Only three weeks until my Alaska trip! My last day of work is Tuesday the 30th, and I leave for Alaska on Saturday the 4th. I will miss my friends at work, for sure. I will not miss being bored. Since it's summertime and school is out, my job has sloooowed to a halt.

I miss Amanda.

That's all.

Work Boredom

Not much happening around here (work) today. I finally registered for classes and did my online student loan interview thingamajig. THEN, since I was bored, I started playing with photobooth. Here is the result of my friend Amy making me laugh in the middle of my photobooth photo session. I don't remember what she said that was so funny.

Nothing, really

It seems like I haven't posted in a while, but it's only been 6 days. That's not THAT long. I am still tired. Maybe I am always tired. Something to think upon, I suppose. I've been working, sleeping, and playing with Richie's new dog, Lucy. She is a white pit bull with 2 different colored eyes. She looks a lot like Karen's dog (Daisy), may she rest in peace. Speaking of Karen...I stopped by the other day to see the baby's room. Yeah, it is totally way cuter than the picture on her blog suggests and the furniture is beautiful. Karen is a cute pregnant lady, but the belly totally creeps me (and Jay) out!! I did get to feel Rory kick, though! I was quite excited. I love spending time with Jay and Karen because they let me eat their food and talk as much as I want :). But really, I just enjoy being around them.

Tonight, I am babysitting. The girls and I are going to make flower pens, if all goes as planned. Nicholas can make one, too, if he wants. I love the kids, so they will be a perfect ending to an already much better than usual day.

Oh, and the information that you probably don't want to know...the accutane is causing my nose to bleed and my lips to stay constantly chapped. They feel yucky. Of course, my face is really dry, too. I will be glad when my skin is clear and I don't have to take this medicine anymore!

Can I sleep until June 30th?

What's left from last night's to-do list:
  • Do my online loan entrance interview so that I can then accept my loans for Asbury. Wow, the number on the screen is huge! But, I know I am following God's plan. I know he will provide. I love the peace that comes with trusting God.
  • Register for classes!!!!!
  • Clean my room!
None of that is happening tonight. Work is wearing me out. Not having my own space and desk is just...I don't know, but it's not good! Sometimes I feel like I can barely breathe, much less think and work. So each night when I get home, I don't do anything I don't HAVE to do. I ate, showered, did laundry, and slept last night. Anything else just was NOT happening. I finished up my work stuff at work today...what a novel idea! There was an empty office today because someone had the day off, so I took it over for a couple hours and got all my stuff done. I wrote my last report today...woohoo! 3 weeks and 5 days until my last work day!!

Oh and I just remembered, I have lots of packing to do before moving at the end of this month! Booooooooooooooooo!

Busy, busy

Tonight I have to/need to:
  • Finish some stuff for work. Type up a document and also fill in my contact logs for the last 2 weeks.
  • Do my online loan entrance interview so that I can then accept my loans for Asbury. Wow, the number on the screen is huge! But, I know I am following God's plan. I know he will provide. I love the peace that comes with trusting God.
  • Register for classes!!!!!
  • Clean my room!
  • Shower.
  • Cook and eat dinner.
  • SLEEP!

Man oh man I am tired just thinking about all that, and for a quick second or 2 I got overwhelmed. But it's all okay. I can get it done. I am so excited for all the great things happening in my life!
