Sorry about not updating [26 Jan 2007|06:45pm]
I am so sorry I haven't updated in awhile. I'm horrible I know. I just use Xanga and MySpace more often. I'll try and update this more.

Anyway, my Colts are going to the Super Bowl. I'm also excited because the Bears are going to the Super Bowl. But I'll be cheering more for the Colts. I want them to win. But let me tell ya it's crazy here in the Midwest. Yup.

I'm still working at the Bookstore and subbing more in the lunchroom at school. Hopefully find another part-time job in the summer or when Kaitlyn leaves for college. So I can finally have my car back. She drives it all the time and I depend on mom to take me to work most of the time. Kaitlyn needs to use the car though because she's always busy and needs it. But I love my job here at the Bookstore.

I was lucky enough a few weeks ago and bought a Nintendo Wii with leftover Christmas money and bonus money. I only have the game that came with it so far, Wii Sports. But it's super fun. My Grandpa has even played. It's fun stuff.

Well, I think I'm going to head out. I promise to update this more often. I hope all is well (if anyone still reads this). Have a good one!

Sorry [26 Sep 2006|12:44am]
[ mood | energetic ]

I highly doubt anyone reads this anymore. Sorry I haven't updated in a while. I usually use Xanga more than this. But I will TRY to update this more and check your sites. I promise. Nothing much has been going on. I've been working out more and losing weight, which is a good thing. I need to lose a lot more weight, but it's a start.

I'm the Youth Director at our church now. Things have been crazy at church. Our other pastor left and our new one started a few weeks ago. Our new pastor is amazing and such a nice guy. I think everything is going to work out just fine.

My sister is now a senior in high school. I FEEL SO OLD NOW! She's going to be 18 in December and it doesn't seem possible. It just seemed like yesterday she was 8 years old. How time flies. Gosh.

Well, I think I may head out. I need to get a few things done, then head to bed. Have a good week everyone and I'll try and post in this more.

It's been awhile... [08 Jul 2006|01:18am]
So... I haven't posted on this in awhile. I'm not even sure if anyone reads it. Maybe I should start updating this again.

Great news! [16 Feb 2006|07:39pm]
[ mood | working ]

Before Kaitlyn's major knee surgery, they always go in to make sure that's needed. They found out that her kneecap wasn't the problem. Some tissue was growing over her kneecap and it tore. They cut it out and the major sugery wasn't needed! I'm so happy for her. She went back to school yesterday and still has pain, but she'll heal in no time. Thanks for the prayers. =)

Kaitlyn's having surgery [20 Jan 2006|05:37pm]
[ mood | bored ]

My sister is finally having knee surgery. She's having it on Feb. 8th. She has a smile on her face and is excited about the surgery, but I know she's just doing that. I know she's scared to death. She won't be able to do track this year and won't be able to finish our her dance classes this school year. That's going to break her heart when she can't do those things. Please pray for her.

Wow... it's been awhile since I've updated this thing. A few things have happened since my last update.

I turned 24.
My sister turned 17.
I feel old now.
I graduated from college.
I'm still working at the bookstore.
I may fill out paperwork to start subbing within the local school system.
I have no clue what I want to do with my life.
The Colts had an awesome season.
They lost today in the Playoffs.
Lets get them next year boys!

Sorry I haven't been updating lately. My life has been super stressful with school starting up, changes in my work and school schedule. Everything seems to stress me out. I just need to relax. Only one more semester! Then I have NO clue what I want to do. Eh... please pray for me for this semester. I need prayers to help keep me sane and focused.

I'll visit your sites if I ever find time... please forgive me.

Woah, glad that week is over... [15 Aug 2005|11:32am]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Last week was so crazy!! Well, my classes start up in one week. I only have one class at the campus (I live an hour away so I get to drive back and forth for 2 days with my dad. He works at the University I attend). I really don't need to be full-time in order to graduate in December. I just need one 300 level class. But I'm signed up for full-time so I can still have military insurance. It's not free though because I'm 23. Oh well... we get to pay for that and it's a bummer. We're not used to paying for health insurance because we all have military insurance, but I'm 23 and can stay on it until I'm 25 I think. But we have to pay so much every 3 months. It's been hard paying for it because we've just finished our roof and that was a bundle of money. I'm grateful for my parents though. They've been paying it for me. I have no money really, but I should be getting a school loan check back because I'm getting free money from the goverment this semester for school. Pell grants and more! Shock!! hehe but I'm happy.

Well, I need to get ready for the day. I've been having some difficult times right now and if you believe in prayer, would you pray for me? Thankies. =)

Have a good one everyone!

I'm back! [05 Aug 2005|09:31pm]

I'm back from my much needed break from my journals and Internet. My classes ended today. I think I did okay in my psychology class. I hope so! Well, I really don't feel like updating right now and will write later on. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Break [15 Jul 2005|02:39pm]
[ mood | busy ]

I need to take a break away from my journal for some time. It might be a few days or a week. I don't really know. I just need to focus on my school work right now. I'm taking a full load this summer and it's starting to get to me. There's just so much homework to do. I'll check your sites if I have time, but won't be around much for a few days or so. I hope you will understand. I really need a break and school is getting to me, but I need to try and focus. Thanks for understanding.

Blah! [09 Jul 2005|11:57pm]
[ mood | sad ]

I'm taking a psychology class online. I HATE it! Tonight was the first test and I really didn't do so hot. =( I'm just not good in science. I've received a perfect score on all of my homework so far. I'm just not a test person. If you would, please pray for me. I really need to get a C or better in this class.

Pray for my cousin Ed as well. He's in Iraq and we just got word a few nights ago that he got hurt. =(

Not an upbeat post, I know.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Busy bee with classes... [27 Jun 2005|03:32pm]
[ mood | stressed ]

Well, I have a total of 8 hours to watch of my Jazz DVD by Thursday.  Then on Thursday I have to watch my 2 hour exam and take it.  That'll be the last session of this dumb class.  I hate this class.  I thought it was going to be easy because they say it's for non-music majors.  Boy was I wrong... it's way too hard.

Today I also start my Summer 2 classes.  I'm taking two during this summer semester.  They're Internet classes (no watching anymore DVDs!), so that's good.  I'm excited about one because it's a Business Writing class and it's the same English Prof I had on the net during my Spring semester that I totally loved!  But the other class I'm taking is Psychology.  I tried taking this class before in the typical classroom setting, but dropped it.  I don't get into this stuff.  But this is the class.  I need to get a C or better in this class and if I do, I'll graduate this December.  I'm trying to be positive.  I really need to do this.  It's going to be hard, but I seem to do well in Internet classes.  I feel more comfortable taking a class that way.  But would you guys pray for me?  I need all the prayer I can get right now.  Thanks...

Well, I'm going to read for a bit and then head to work.  This is going to be a crazy week!  But I can do it!  Hope everyone has a good one. 

I've never heard much of Jack Johnson's music until Kaitlyn bought the CD the other day.  I had to buy it because I loved it so much.  Buy this CD, it rocks!

I hate my Jazz Class!

The prof isn't a very good prof.

I was crying earlier because I was so upset.

I'll explain later... maybe.

I'll update later.

I miss my Kaitlyn. =(

Young hearts [19 Jun 2005|12:17am]
[ mood | touched ]

I heard the sweetest thing ever today at work.  First I need to explain a bit.

Colleen Coble (local Christian Fiction Author) had a book signing at work today, along with another author.  For this occasion we had balloons everywhere in our store.  A lady came into the store (the owner knows her and I've seen her in the store a lot) with her two sons.  Her youngest is about 3 or 4 and her older son is 6 or 7.  The younger boy saw the balloons and his eyes just grew wide.  Kevin, my boss, decided to take him to the back and blow him up two balloons and tied them to a string.  He had two balloons on one string and was walking around the store with the balloons hovering over him.  It was so cute. 

Anyway, his mom told us that their dog died a few years ago and her youngest boy asked about their dog the other night.  He asked her if their dog, Babe, was in Heaven.  The mom explained that their dog was in Heaven.  He said he was glad because he wanted to see his dog again.  The little boy then asked his mom if balloons go to Heaven.  She told him that they do.  (Sometimes they would let their balloons go and float up in the air and the mom always told her sons they were going to Heaven).  Well, the little boy told his mom that there's going to be lots of balloons in Heaven with him and his dog.  His mom just kind of laughed, smiled and explained that there would be.  She was telling us about this, but the little boy brought up the subject a bit today when he saw the balloons tied up everywhere.  It was just TOO cute!!!  =)  Little kids are so great... they're just adorable.  hehe today was fun.  We were busy off and on and when it was slow, I'd find kids in the store and give them a balloon.  Man... how I wish to be a little kid again. 

Sorry, I just had to share that.  It was too adorable not to share.  =)

Sad day... [14 Jun 2005|08:28pm]
[ mood | sad ]

I went out to Walmart with my mom and sister earlier.  I was going to buy the new Backstreet Boys CD, but didn't have enough money.  My sister ended up buying it for me and bought herself one as well.  She calls it a "love gift."  Thanks again Kaitlyn.  You rock my socks!

Today has been a BUSY day!  It's been non-stop since about 11AM this morning.

I'm putting a LJ cut on this because it's kind of sad.  It's about a dog dying.  If you'd like to read then click the link below.

I put this on my Xanga, but thought I'd share here.  I'm putting it under a cut so it's not so big on the "friends page" for people. Go ahead and check it out and have a good laugh.

TGIF! [03 Jun 2005|10:32pm]
[ mood | busy ]

I must admit, I'm starting to get addicted to LiveJournal!  Oh no!  hehe  :o)

I went to Financial Aid yesterday and found out some good news.  I'm getting 2 grants for sure and possibly getting one more.  3 grants from the Government for my college education?!?!  Of course I get this much free money for my last semester (hopefully my last semester).  Wish I could have gotten more grants throughout college.  Oh well... that's how it goes.  Hey, I can't complain... I might not have to pay for anything this semester!  Woohoo!

So my MUS DVD class is getting better.  I watched a session last night and it's not that boring this week.  Hopefully it'll get better.

I have misplaced my memory card for my digital camera.  I can't find it anywhere!  Hopefully I'll find it... I paid $40 for that thing.

I have some stupid quotes to share, but I'll post them later.  I wrote them down, but don't feel like going downstairs to get them.  Yes, I'm lazy... I know.  hehe  :o)

Well, I think I'm going to watch another session for my DVD class.  It's Friday night and I have nothing to do.  Oh well.... maybe I can actually get some work done.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I really must say that Financial Aid frustrates me. I got an email about my loans, but when I go to my school's site everything is listed wired. I would call them or email them, but every time I do this they tell me they don't know what's wrong or why it's showing up like that. I'm going to Fort Wayne tomorrow so I suppose I could swing by the school and figure this out. Really don't want too, but looks like I have no choice. Grrr!

I hope everyone had a nice holiday. My weekend was jammed packed with numerous things... gosh. Feel like the energizer bunny. Keep going and going....

My MUS 393 class (Jazz Styles class I take on DVD) is boring! I can’t stand it. I thought it was going to be a difficult class and somewhat interesting... boy I was wrong! It’s for non-majors and is totally basic! I didn't know it was a class made for non-music majors. I'm not a music major anymore, but I know that some music majors are taking this class. Music has been my life and I know the identification of instruments and how they sound. So far, this class is exactly that. It’s so boring! The last session I watched my professor had demonstrations of instruments so we could watch it. I don’t know if I can handle this.

Well, I'm going to leave you with a few pictures from tonight. Think I might go watch a movie. Have a good week everyone! :o)

We had a campfire earlier tonight:
