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.

Keeping you updated!

So, I've been home for about two weeks. I miss Carrie and all my friends in Pennsylvania. I had such a great summer and was sad to have to depart and leave them all behind, but I know that I will be going back down as soon as I can to visit and have more fun! Scott, Mel, Dave, Chris, and Amy made my visit the best it could have possibly have been. I not only was able to enjoy time with Carrie, I was also able to go out with friends that accepted me into the group within the first couple of weeks without question! I am so thankful for their friendships and the time we spent together. I have now gained friendships that I will cherish forever. We did a lot while I was in the great state of Pennsylvania and since I've been home it hasn't stopped! The Monday of my return I was taken to Boston by Donna to go to the Red Sox game with her cousins. We sat in the Budweiser Roof Deck and had an absolutely awesome time. I started back to work the Thursday and Friday for workshops. And then this past Monday and Wednesday, Donna and I went two minor-league baseball games. One was in Manchester for the FisherCats and the other was in Portland for the SeaDogs! We had a great time at both games, as usual and ran into some friends while we were at the Manchester game. This past week was the first week of school for the kids. I'm working in 7th grade and I do enjoy it. They've changed the way things are going in the 7th and 8th grade and the paraprofessionals. Last weekend I did some dress shopping with Sara and the other girls in her wedding party. We found a couple of dresses, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. I have managed to continue taking pictures and posting some of them on RedBubble. I am still so thankful to Carrie for getting me back into a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy doing! I am looking forward to Carrie coming home for a few days and possibly spending a bit of time with her. I am also hoping to see a friend in a couple of weeks once we have settled into our schedules again! We will see what happens after we have dinner :)

Well, I'll keep you updated with my life as I can.
