(did I mention "N" bought us tickets to the Josh Groban concert in October?!?!?! I am PSYCHED!...and you wonder why I love him. ;)
So I'm back for a brief stop. How are you all??? Update me on your lives in the comments below! I'll do my best to keep up -- problem is the only Internet access I have is via my (really dumb) smartphone, and my parents house (unless I go for coffee....which costs $$). So I blog when I can in the comfort of my parents house (yay free food! lol).
Life is good, yet continually busy. Right now...it has actually been pretty quiet for the last two days as I caught some horrible bug and was super sick for the last few days! So...no work, no play, just me thinking I'm gonna die of a fever with my laptop and a stack of DVD's to keep me busy. Hallelujah, the sick only lasted a short time, I am up and running again after 48 hours...still a bit stuffed up...but alive! :)
Other than that...working has kept me busy-ish. We have no air at work....so I'm getting prepared for the second warmest summer of my life. Yay. Other than that...work is just...work. I am still giving piano lessons to my two nieces and nephew -- they are doing great! They can read through and entire song and name every note (A, B, or G type thing), name the type of note (half note, quarter, dotted half, etc.), and they are all understanding time signatures....if they would practice more...we'd be good. Lol. I can't blame them, I am horrible at practicing myself.
I have found a fabulous church which I absolutely love, and another church which I very much enjoy visiting. I have rediscovered my desire for God. Not to say I don't struggle anymore (I kinda am even today), but I really want God in my life, I love Him so entirely much, and I want Him to be first in my life always. That...is a HUGE CHANGE from last year about this time...I was seriously bitter, striving, and struggling to want to be with God at all. I...feel so incredibly happy. Joyful. Even though it takes so much work daily to put God first, and I fail a LOT at it...I'm trying, and so very happy to do so. ) Yay.
"N" -- or "Knightly" as Kellie so kindly dubbed him (ha! Love it...he about died when I told him...he thinks we stole his man card or something....) is safely in Italy. As of tonight...I haven't seen him for a week. A whole freaking week...that feels like a month. If one week feels like a month...the next three weeks is gonna feel like....forever. :( Bah. And Humbug. Ah well, I am ever so glad he has this incredibly opportunity! Seriously...if I had it...I would be there....but I still miss him. A LOT. A LOT A LOT A LOOOOOOT. My eyes are burning a little.
|My roses he surprised me with after watching|
the sunset at Lake Michigan our last evening before he left. :)
So there. Altogether life is beautiful and better (thought in 20+ some days when someone comes home it will be a LOT better).
Love you all! Thanks for sticking around, I will try to catch up with all your blogs this weekend!
All my love,
