Quick updates and the 411

So - it looks like I didn't win the Marie-Terese beautiful dress give away. I hope whatever little girl got that makes the most of it. My inner little girl is crying cause I didn't win - but I will be ok, with time, and maybe an ice-cream.

Right now, I am up to my eyeballs in studying for 2 tests that I am trying to take early so we can head down to San Diego for Thanksgiving (for a much needed vacation), a research paper that is causing me more stress than it really should and all the rest of what I do - housework, yard work (a whole weekend worth of pruning, raking and dumping the rubbish over the fence. what will we do when someone buys the empty lot and we loose our neighborhood compost pile.) work-work, shopping (the functional kind - not the fun kind), cleaning (oh - the never ending cleaning) and the list goes on and on.

Right now I am listening to Nickelback - Gotta be Somebody - Right now, I LOVE THIS SONG!! I don't know why it is resonating with me so much, I mean, I found my somebody, but sometimes I need to remember that there was a time when I didn't have him and I felt like this, where I just wanted to be with someone who just got me, who wanted to be with me over all else and who would take my life (heart) in his hands and not hurt it. To feel like someone cares and someone gives a damn, even if I am crazy and emotional and un-logical with my thoughts! I especially love the part about not giving up, especially when times get rough. Everyone needs those reminders, right! It's not just me!

"Nobody wants to be the last one there, everyone wants to feel that someone cares. Someone to love with my life in their hands, there's got to be someone for me like that."

"Cause nobody wants to go it on their own, Everyone wants to know they are not alone,
that somebody else that feels the same some way, there has got to be someone for me out there!"

seriously - go listen to it! I have yet to figure out how to add music to my blog spot. Maybe next post - yeah, right!

Hey Julie...I actually have that song playing on my blog right now. Just go to my blog and click on my player and it should take you to the website that will help you load a player onto your blog. It's pretty easy.

Yay! A new post! Life still sounds as crazy as ever. Good luck on your tests and your paper - I know you'll do great. If you ever need help (at least with writers block) I've got your back.

I hope you enjoy your time in San Diego and the much needed vacay. We'll miss you guys this year... call soon and give me all the 411!

Wait, so that means you are coming down her for sure? YIPPEEE!!! That is fantastic news. Keegan is going to have a blast with all his cousin play time. I'll be sure to order some fabulously, unseasonly warm weather for when you are here so we can entice you to say. It feels like forever since I talked to you...even though AJ's talked to Aaron a couple of times. We can't wait to see you guys.

P.S. good luck on all the school stuff. I'm sending A+ vibes your way so you can be sure to enjoy your vacation.
