So, wow. That’s about all I can say about my life right now. I feel like everything in my life is piling up, like a stack of papers on a desk that you just DO NOT want to clean off. Or maybe my life is more like a snow ball that is falling down a hill of snow, growing and getting bigger. No, wait I got it. I’m the little kid who is running away from the huge snow ball. Yep, that’s it.
Ok for real now I’ll just let you in on a few things that I have done (and things I have not done) in the past couple of weeks. First, I haven’t slept through the night in about two whole weeks. Literally, I am up every five-ten minutes. I could blame in on Nina, since she takes up valuable real estate on my bed, but really, it’s just stuff on my mind. Like the wedding, work, school, church, the wedding, did I mention the wedding?
I completed this HUGE project at work and I was so excited about it. For the past month and a half, I have been working on a very large project that took up most of my time at work. Then, the same day I was celebrating being done, I was given a new project that was just as big and will take me until I graduate to finish. I literally got off work that day, went to my car, and cried for about ten minutes. Thankfully, my boss has given me lots of breathing room. I can work on it sparatically, and take breaks when I want. My bosses are amazing women, and I really do love my job.
I was just offered today a chance to edit a paper for a student and get paid for it! Holla! Something that an English major can actually do! Basically, someone translated a paper from Chinese into English, and now I have to make it readable (or understandable) for the profesor. Pretty cool.
We registered! Yay! We did it at Wal-Mart and Sears. Sears was a difficult option, but I have Fiesta dishes, and Sears sells them, so I can complete my set. I was satisfied with both places. Since I already have most things to start a home, we also registered at honeymoonwishes.com. It’s pretty cool!
We had a difficult issue with our Pastor, and we resolved it. All is well. So, we the pastor to marry us is something we can check off our list. That was a big burden lifted. I’m thankful for our church family, and that we have figured stuff out.
OH! And how could I forget……we found an apartment! 🙂 Thanks to my amazing family, we have it all cleaned and painted and ready to move in! Brent is going to live there until the wedding (it’s an experiment…you know, to see how he lasts without anyone there to help…lol, j/k I’ll be there to clean and stuff). We took two loads over yesterday, and the kitchen is fully unpacked. It’s a cute little place, I’ll post pictures eventually. And it’s close to this amazing Chinese restaurant that we ate at last night. I’m pretty stoked!
Other than that, it’s been school, school, school. Yesterday I FINALLY finished my short story for a class. It was supposed to be 20 pages, but I ended it at 16. I was too tired last night. I have another one due next week…boo.
So that’s my life right now. Piled up, running away from a big ball of snow falling down a hill.
