I'm Back!

         Wow! It's been a long time since I've posted here and I definitely need to start again. So, where to start?  I now have a 3-year old son who is my whole world and amazes me every day. The relationship with his father was over 2 years ago. I have learned to be the best mom I can be for my son and to make decisions based on what is best for him. Which, at times has made me put things I want on the back-burn, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I am still a waitress, but I work at a local a restaurant where my best-friend's rehearsal dinner was held about 11 years ago.  My life isn't perfect, but I do the best I can. I have a great support system around me and my son, that I feel confident that he is getting what he needs from me.  
             My sister will be celebrating 4 years of marriage on the 19th and I couldn't be happier for her. My brother-in-law is the best. He treats my sister like a princess. Though he travels a lot for his work, he always manages to do something special for her when he's been gone for a long period of time. Speaking of weddings...My brother got married in July!!! I am so over the moon for him because my sister-in-law is an absolute doll. She is just perfect for him. Sorry, no pictures of the day. It was very intimate occasion, just the way they wanted.   
           I don't know what the future holds for me, but it will be a great journey. I will get to watch my son grow up and learn new things. Every thing I do now and will continue will always be for him and making sure he has what he needs. I look forward to sharing this journey with every one!

Just an Update!

Well, Christmas has come and gone. It was a good holiday with the family all together. Sara and Adam spoiled us way too much. Sara got me two shirts, a necklace, and a book. Mike gave me a book series called THe Hunger Games, and some hand-made gloves. I got a Vera Bradley wallet with cash in it from mom and dad, along with a gift card to Target. It was a good Christmas. I also received Twilight Saga: Eclipse and NCIS: Season 3 in my stocking.
     My dad got completely spoiled, which is a good thing. Mike and Sara framed his Bruschi jersey, I gave him an autographed mini-helmet of Tedy Bruschi, mom gave him a Wii, and Mike gave him a Cd and movie. Adamm had bought tickets for yesterdays Patriots' game, but dad couldn't go because he's got an infection in is incision. He goes back to the doctor this week to see how the antibiotics are working.
      Adam got Sara a laptop for Christmas, so she'll stop using his and can take it to class with her. They really spoil each other. Sara will start dress fittings, probably in April. My aunt said she would go as long as she had enough notice.
       Sara and I got new pictures taken for mom for Christmas. She loved them. Sara's friend Jill took the pictures. We had so much fun and laughed a lot. We put one picture in the frame and gave mom a couple extra pictures to go along with the frame.
       Vacation wasn't nearly long enough, but there's another one in February. And hopefully that vacation finds me in Florida enjoying the sun. Then I'm hoping to be in Pennsylvania in April when Carrie is home from Basic. We'll have to see what happens because I'm looking for a job anywhere I can get one.
       Mike's birthday is Saturday and then he flies back to Milwaukee on Sunday. Donna is playing in a hockey tournament this weekend. Hoping to get up at least Saturday afternoon to watch. I can't believe Sara's wedding is in just over seven months. It doesn't seem possible. Hopefully the other two girls go to the bridal store this week or next to put the deposits down on their dresses so we can get them ordered. Now I need to start working on her bridal shower and where to have it. I would just do it at the house, but it's not big enough. It's alright because I know I'll find a place.
      I'm still working in the sixth grade and now I go down to fourth grade from 10:00 to 11:15 everyday. It's crazy what they're doing with our schedules. And I never did find out why it was me who got moved and not someone else.
       Anyways, I'm going to work really hard to find a job somewhere else. A job that has benefits :)

Later y'all!!!!!

what's new?

So, I thought I'd write just to let everyone what's been going on. I'm still enduring the college search. My brother was home over Thanksgiving and edited my second draft of my essay; I've rewritten it and emailed it to him to edit again! I have such an awesome brother!!!! His visit home wasn't nearly long enough, but it never seems to be! I took him and Shereen to Portsmouth on "Black Friday" and we walked around a bit and had lunch at the Friendly Toast. It was a lot of fun to have the family here for Thanksgiving. The only people that were missing were, Sara, Adam, and Scott! Then the house would have been complete!!!!! I'm still looking for a job in the medical field. Who knows what will happen in the future.

I got my first letter from Carrie and was so excited to hear from her! She's doing well at boot-camp and will be glad to receive as many letters from me as I can send! I'm hoping to go down to Pennsylvania in April after she graduates basic training and AIT! I guess that's all for now. Later y'all!!!!

New Happenings!

     Sorry it's been a while since my last post. Life has been a little crazy lately, with a new relationship and trying to get the house ready for Thanksgiving. My relationship is going quite well right now, though I'm still a little worried about the potential heartbreak. Dave and I have talked about this countless times, and I realize it's a risk we take when getting into a relationship, I'm still a bit worried because now there's kids involved. My heart is quite convinced that things will progress as they are meant to and that hearts won't be broken. It's getting my heart to convince my brain. We've been together for just over a month and I couldn't be happier. It's truly amazing how one person can make such a difference. :)
           Well, I have a new serrogate neice. She will be two months old on the nineteenth. Her mom and I grew up together and got to be really good friends starting in high school. This little girl is absolutely adorable and just melts my heart. Sorry, no pictures! I can't believe how many of my friends are parents. Even my boyfriend is a dad! Not all of the people I grew up with are parents, but there's a good chunk of them that are.
     Carrie came home to visit one last time before leaving for bootcamp about two weeks ago. She is officially in bootcamp as of today. I got her address today when she called her mom for a brief conversation. I know that the two of us haven't always been close, but for the last nine months we've become best friends again! Even before her trip home last February, we would meet for a drink when she would visit and needed to get out of her house for a bit. I think the time I spent in Pennsylvania this summer was good for the both of us. I will miss her while she's at bootcamp, but I'm also very happy for her! She is doing what she needs to for her. This step in her life!
     I received a new bottle of wine from my favorite married couple in Pennsylvania!!!!  :)  It's called Chocolate Lab and is a chocolate flavored wine. Thank you Chris and Dave for thinking of me while you were celebrating your anniversary!!! I can't wait to try it. I think I'll wait for a special occassion to open it!
     For now, that's it. I'm still working on college applications. That's an ongoing process :)I'll keep you updated as things progress!

Fate has Finally Stepped In :)

Well, I know I mentioned this before but there's a guy in my life. We are definitely taking it slow because of his kids! We make each other so happy. Never in a million years would I have thought I would end up here at this place, with this person! I smile more than I have before and I feel different than I have in any other relationship. As I said before, we grew up together, went to grade school and when we hit high school he left after freshman year. We lost contact for about ten years and a couple of months before I left for Pennsylvania we got back in contact with each other. Even then I didn't think we would end up where we are now. Hell, three months ago, I would have said you were crazy if you told me that I would be at this place now! I knew I wanted to try and see if things work when Carrie was home in September and we all went out to the bar for some drinks and pool. Since then, I have found out how happy we are when we're together! That one night at the bar was the night that sparked everything. It seems that fate has finally stepped in for the both of us and brought us here, together. The future is still a mystery, but I can at least influence it as much as possible. We want to end up together in the end, it's just a matter of time and patience :)  I'll definitely keep you posted on what happens!!!!!

Life as I Know it!

So, I have officially started the application process for college. Man do I feel like I'm in high school again. Trying to write essays for college applications is not an easy task to take on. I will get through with the help of my family and friends. Speaking of friends; I have been spending time with a friend that I grew up with. We went to school together, we didn't really keep in touch after high school. We got back in touch when I was in Pennsylvania and we started hanging out together since I've been home! It's been really nice to have someone to talk to, and we talk about everything. I was at his place the other night, we watched Avatar and then stayed up talking until 3:30 in the morning. I can't believe how much we talk when we are together. We've gone out with his kids to see the foliage, which wasn't very pretty, but it was still a nice day! We have a good friendship going on right now, and maybe that's what we both need. We're going out tomorrow and Friday, and he said that he would help me with my essays if I wanted him to. I'm going to see if he'll with the personal choice essay. My best friend, Carrie is leaving for basic-training in a few weeks. I'm sad that she's leaving, but very very proud of her. She'll be home for a visit before she leaves and I'm sure we'll hang out. Right now, I guess that's it. I will keep you updated on my college endeavors as the arise.

September 12, 2010


So, I'm realizing more and more what I truly want out of life. I'm going back to school next fall to get my Bachelor's degree in Nursing and am hoping to find that guy that makes my heart skip a beat. I want, more than anything in the world, to be a mother. I want to have a family and watch little ones running around a house that is as warm and loving as mine was while I was growing up. I want to go through the joys of motherhood along with the joys of being a wife. I know I'm 27 years old, but that doesn't mean I'm not ready for all of this to happen, I'm just waiting for the right guy to come along! I know that all of this will happen as it's meant too, but the waiting for it to happen sucks-ass; so there's no sense in staying home waiting for "Mr. Right" to fall into my lap. I'm going to have to get out there and step outside of the little box I like to be in. I also realize that because I'm getting older, the guys that I date will have as much baggage as myself or more. And I realize that some of them may already have children. That is something that I don't mind, as long as the guy I end up with wants to have more children. So, here's to my plans for the future and finding the one true-love of my life.
