alright already

Okay ... Okay ...

I haven't posted in a while. This blog thing is way harder to keep up with then I thought. Anyway I haven't fallen off the face of the earth ... I'm still here, barely. This job is squashing me like a little ant. I will be so happy when things start to calm down next week and I will have time to breathe and relax a bit. So ... until then ... sorry I am not giving you a better update but to appease you I've included the funniest picture of my sister, Ashley, when I visited her at camp this summer. Notice the price tag on the plastic donkey ... you've got to be kidding me!

an update ...

Okay ... so I know the last two posts were rediculously short ... sorry.

Life is just crazy right now. Work is really getting on my nerves. I know that I really shouldn't have such high expectations and then it wouldn't bother me as much but that's not who I am. I expect things to be a certain way and when it isn't I'm not a happy camper. You'd think that as old as I am and as much as I've been through I would have learned better ways to handle this stress but I think it bothers me this much because I am personally invested in UNF. This is where my degree is from. This is where I have spent (off and on) about 10 years of my life. I feel the pain of the students when they feel we are screwing them over. I've been there ... done that.

Anyway, recently some pretty cool people have come into my life and for that I am thankful. I also just learned that my Grandma Hoo Hoo and Aunt Trish are doing fine ... no cancer ... and that is quite a blessing. Also, I suprised my dad with tickets to a Tom Petty concert and he's pretty darn excited. Score!

So ... this weekend ... let's see. I have a work happy hour social at the Cheesecake Factory this Friday ... nice (not to mention free). Friday is also my friend Michelle's birthday (happy birthday, Michelle). Saturday I'm hanging with friends, cleaning house and doing laundry ... woo hoo. Sunday I am starting a"new members" class at church. I think I'm going to go ahead and make Southside my new church home. I really haven't found a church I feel at home in here. Southside is as close as it gets and I'm sure that after I really start getting involved it will feel more like a home and I won't feel so much like a visitor.

Well, that's all for now. Enjoy the weekend. TTYL.

Saturday was Julie and Dennie's wedding at a chapel downtown. It was beautiful and the cake was from Cinnotti's so you know that it was fantastic. I know Julie and Dennie will enjoy a lifetime of happiness together.

YAY! A diva birthday celebration is always a fun event. Diva Shay celebrated her birthday on Friday and we all showed up at the Lemon Bar for drinks and then after a bit of a fiasco with Ragtime we headed to Sun Dog for dinner and dancing. Good times were had by all.

Thought I'd share with you my thoughts for this Friday summed up in a lost Dr. Seuss poem ... enjoy!

brand new ...

Well, here goes nothing. I am giving in. I've decided that it is nearly impossible for me to keep up with my friends and family so I'm creating a blog. I can't believe it. I remember how long it took for me to get a cell phone and now I've got a blog. Man how times change.

Here I will post updates and pictures to keep you posted on what's happening in my life. Hopefully this will be better than what I'm doing currently which is managing to send out an update at Christmas and if you're lucky I might manage a card randomly sometime in the year with a short "hello". This will hopefully solve that problem and hopefully this will be a fun way to catch up on the life and times of, well, myself.

Anyway, into the great wide open ...
