I never blog. :)

I never blog anymore. I really do enjoy the thought of blogging...and I think I really would blog more if I could get on while I was at school. I feel like I'm there all of the time and it might be a nice break for me to get online and blog a bit.

Tonight, Dustin and I are babysitting Ansley for Matt and Dev. I love this kid. Seriously. Sometimes I think I want a kid, but really what I think I mean is that I want this kid. I love being married and most of the time I love that it is just Dustin and me. He is such a great husband, and I think I just might possibly be the happiest I've ever been in my whole life.

I can't believe my 5th grade year is 1/4 over. I seriously love it. I'm made for the upper grades.

Lately, I've been burdened with the need to memorize scripture. I've been thinking lately how much scripture I already do have memorized and I'm so thankful for sunday school, awanas, PBC, and all of the other venues that encouraged me to memorize scripture. Dustin and I decided to hold each other accountable at memorizing scripture. We're starting with Philippians 3:12-13 to start us off. In light of our moving to camp as full time missionaries, we thought it was appropriate. :)

12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead

Here's to looking forward to what lies ahead. :)

Until next time...

snow day number three

as crazy as it sounds...i'm just not the kind of person who goes stir crazy. i love being home. i don't mind being locked in, and i don't mind the fact that i haven't gone anywhere in 3 days. nor do i feel the need to leave in my little corolla and venture out onto the ice skating rink known as my apartment complex parking lot. :)

i do, however, hate being alone. after awhile, the buzz of the refrigerator just doesn't keep my company anymore. i can do all the laundry i want, clean the bathrooms, straighten up, make the bed...but it just doesn't have the same effect as having someone here to be with. maybe that's the crazy part. the desire for human interaction is the one thing that is ticking away at my common sense trying to get me to leave the comfort of my wonderful little home. insanity, i know.

on the upside, my house is very tidy, my clothes are very clean, and i am very relaxed. i am starting to run out of food though. and toilet paper. now that's a problem.

the best part is--we get monday off too for MLK! :) so far, 2011 is off to a great start.

until next time...

seriously? almost an entire year without blogging? tsk, tsk.

and sadly, this might have been the year that i had the most to say. :) so much has happened in my life since my last post.

sadly, i am too tired to post too much tonight. so, a simple numbered list will have to suffice.

1. i'm thankful for a working computer and wireless internet in my house. the last time that happened i was a full time student at berry college.

2. i am halfway through with first grade. 18 more weeks and i'm back on summer vacation. oh, yeah!

3. my husband is addicted to call of duty, black ops. i hate that game.

4. i love my husband. and he helped me get a lot of schoolwork done tonight that i had put off over the break. :)

5. my house is clean and that makes me happy.

6. my new year's resolutions: not to eat in the teacher's lounge, to stop eating when i'm full, and to help dustin with his. (lose 40 pounds and read the entire bible)

7. i'm so content with my life right now. that might be a first.

8. i'm so thankful that i'm a good typist. :)

that's all for now.
until next time!

so, i'm learning that if i leave my computer off for about 3 weeks, it actually kinda-semi-works! :) i've been on it for like 3 hours now...and i've been so productive! i uploaded some pictures, i created some ringtones on, and i got to listen to some itunes songs that aren't on my ipod! it was wonderful.

i just wanted to say that i'm so thankful for all of my friends. especially frisbee, becuase without her, i'd be going crazy right now. i'm under direct orders to let my brain rest. at least until monday, and then i can go postal on the chaplain's office.

i got to spend some real quality time with trace the other night, and it was fabulous. :) i'm glad she's going to be all healed reeeeal soon. :) also, dustin got to spend some one on one time with brian, and that's something he's wanted for awhile.

so, dustin wants to move to cartersville? yeah...random, but i told him he could pick wherever he wanted to live...and i could do anything for a year.

i was so thankful for a snow day on friday! i'm finally feeling better...even though i'm still coughy. i am actually excited and looking forward to next week. not to mention the week after that, because we will have mlk day off. :) buuuuut then it's no breaks until spring break...and everyone will be pushing CRCT crap. oh, well. :)

anyway, i just wanted to blog really quickly because i thought it would be a nice tribute to wilbur, who seems to be trying to hang in there for the moment. :)

oh, and i'm super stoked about a girl's night with bek...and wedding dress shopping this saturday!!!!! :) :) :) still can't believe i'm getting married. i know it will be here before i know it, but i can't wait! :)

until next time.

its time

ok, so it's past time. i haven't blogged in so long...mostly due to lack of a computer. i need to fix that ASAP.

anyway. i'm going to be a total nerd and post it here too:

I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it never gets old. i never get tired of saying it. and at the risk of sounding mushy, i can't wait to marry dustin nicholas allen, the love of my life...the man of my dreams.

the end. :) hopefully i'll have a more productive blog coming your way soon. :)

until next time!

The more and more I think about it, I don't want to be an adult. Only 18 years of my life is spent being a kid. And now? Assuming I live to be 75, that will be 57 years of my life as an adult. It kind of doesn't seem fair.

anyway, enough complaining about that. on to complaining about other things. just like every other year of my life up until now, spring break is approaching. i have always had a spring break, it comes, it goes. unfortunately, no one else has a spring break. :( so, as of right now its looking like i'll be sitting at home all week. by myself. yay.

anyway, enough complaining all together. i can't wait for it to warm up. i can't wait for it to be full-blown spring (even though it aggrivates my allergies) and then, even better...comes summer.

oh, blessed summer vacation. thou art why i chose to be a teacher. ok, so not the only reason, but come has it's motivating factors.

my mom is having surgery on thursday, which means i'm taking friday off. pray for that to go well.

until next time...

i hate being unproductive

there are so many things in my mind right now that i could be doing. instead, i've spent like the past hour of my life on the couch. not moving. i hate being unproductive. i have just been sitting here thinking. and then when that got old, i decided to turn on my trusty ol' dell and see if today would be the lucky day it would blow up. so far, no incident.

i can't describe my life right now. i can't describe my emotions. i can't put them into words. the only thing that i am sure of, is that the only way i am going to make it to the other side of this mountain is by wholly putting my trust in God. i know that sounds so cliche, but it's so true. unless i press on, holding steadfast to the truth, i'm not sure that i would make it to the other side.

i also thought of why i hesitate so much to blog. it's because we have to blog at school. once a week. yikes. and its so forced. i don't know why i put both of my blogs in the same category, because they are most definitely not. eh, just a thought.

sorry this has been so random. welcome to my stream of consciousness for the day. :)

until next time...
