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!
