So much more than I wanted...

It is the first day of Rifle season in WV today. If you have a significant other than enjoys hunting (or if you enjoy it) you know how big of a deal this is. Deer season has never impacted my life, until the last two years. I have off every Monday. Some Mondays I spend it catching up with friends, DVR'd shoes, cleaning or just doing random things. This Monday I woke up at 4:50 to start making Justin's breakfast (he told me to sleep in). As I cleaned up breakfast this morning and I couldn't help but laugh. I never thought I would be excited to get up and see my better half off so early. I never though I would be so happy doing such trivial things. But I am. I have a lot of things to be thankful for this year but I am especially thankful for having more than I ever wanted.

Updates of sorts

I spent some time today going back and rereading my old blog, you know the one my gmail got hacked, password issues and now I can't get in. Sigh.

So many post are about my Grandparents. It has been rough two years in that department. Seriously, I still get emotional just thinking about it. I guess with the upcoming Holidays and the family togetherness, the thought about not having 3 of my Grandparents there is huge. And my one living Grandfather will be going to see his nephew that week so he won't be with us either :(

Justin's family (well his parents) will be in Florida for the holidays and his once across the street Grandparents are now about an hour away (they moved to get out of the harsh winters). So it will be an interesting year.

Justin is almost finished with his first semester of Grad School! Praise the Lord! There are small rumors that he may be done this time next year. I am still saying next May, but secretly hopefully :)

My mom has started Weight Watchers. I am sooo proud of her! She is down 20lbs and really, really doing great!
My dad's cancer scare was a scare and we still have to watch but things are looking good for now!
Brother, well he is still brother. But he is doing well and happy!

Me, well, who has time to worry about themselves?! :P  I am still struggling with weight and finding a minute to breath but things are OK. And even with all the sadness that is comes with missing family members, Justin really does make my cup runnith over :)

7 Quick Takes

  1. It is going to be 50 degrees for the next 5 days or so. I am hoping the warm weather continues but I will be thankful for whatever I can get! I am dreading the winter cold and snow! 
  2. My work has decided to close down for even more days around the holidays. I am SUPER excited. I have also taken the first week off in January so we can go to Florida to visit Justin's parents.
  3. If you haven't heard WVU is moving to the Big 12. I am very excited and can't wait to make a tour of Texas/Oklahoma soon!
  4. Justin and I handed out candy last week, I couldn't believe how many people Trick or Treated for infants (I mean actually wanted children under 1 year to have their own bag of candy)
  5. So in 2 years 8 months I will be 30. Crappppppppp
  6. Do ya'll Pinterest? If not, start and be my friend. You will LOVE IT! If you need an invite let me know :)
  7. Sunday we have to take Justin's mom to the airport, we are going to miss her! But I am excited about IKEA, DSW Shoes and even maybe Cabellas :)
