I Think I Understand

Well, I've never had anything made more obvious to me than I did today. Basically, I believe He was giving me a lesson in patience. I'm sure I'll laugh about it (and feel like posting about it) tomorrow, but that's not how I'm feeling today. Let's just say it involved a certain someone in a situation where they became similar to a drowned cat:

So, today was my day off and I decided to use it to read some more blogs, yay! Anyways, I came across this blog and I've been lurking reading catching up on it. What can I say...I'm kind of OCD and like to start things from the beginning. So sue me! ;-) This blog, Lovelace Files (which I just realized I had been reading as "Lovelace FLIES". Dyslexic much?) is soooo awesome. I haven't quite caught up to the present, but I'm close...just started 2012. Anyways, the author, Kathy, is suuuuuper creative and talented when it comes to DIY. Like, seriously. Some of the things she, and her husband, have created are just incredible! As are some of the things she's mentioned/linked from other DIY blogs. All of this immense craftiness has my fingers itching to try something, anything!

To be honest, I did get my big toe a little wet in craftiness this past Christmas when I tried knitting a scarf. But, with the huge move and everything, it just got pushed to the side. :-/ Now I kind of want to start knitting again, but it's Florida. I really don't think a knit scarf would be very practical right now. But I will find something that will get my creative juices flowing. I used to write, but I want to try something that is a little more physical and requires more manual labor. Basically, something that I can show off better. ;0) Any suggestions?

Another thing Kathy's blog had me wondering was: "What do I want this blog to be like? To focus on? Is it going to have a theme? Or just express my complete randomness?" Well, since I asked myself that so nicely, my brain decided to be cooperative and helped me realize that I want it to really be a reflection of me. As things stand right now, I'm kind of all over the place. I'm still in school, albeit graduating soon. I'm in the beginning (after being delayed for 6 months) stage of planning a wedding. I'm probably going to be uprooting my life as it is now to be with my future husband when he gets into the Air Force, wherever they decide to send him. I'm trying to make myself into a healthier person. And I want to better my relationship with God and my family. There are so many important aspects to who I am right now, aspects that, as minor as some may seem, will shape the adult I am in the future. They'll shape who I am as a wife, sister, daughter, mother, and child of God. I want to document my change, the good and the bad, the exciting and the mundane, everything, so I can look back on my life and be proud of who I am/was. Warts and all.

And wow, cue a little bit of tears there.....

....though I have no idea why. Oh well. Ciao and until next time!

P.S. I really need to find my camera cord because I reeeeeeally want to add some pictures to my blog. :/

A Work in Progress

Ok so I have to admit, when I saw that I have an official follower, I squealed out loud. It might not have been the most dignified sound, but who cares? I was, and still am, super excited! So, thank you Nellie for being my first follower! Now I feel like an official blogger. Is it bad that I completely lost inspiration on future posts as soon as I saw that? Basically I was like:

"Woah. I feel like I have this responsibility now to blog. I don't think I like it."

Ok, so maybe not the exact thought, but pretty close. Am I the only one who feels like this once they have actual acknowledgement that people are reading their blogs? And wow, there are a LOT of questions in this post. Sorry about that.

In case you couldn't tell, my mind is really scattered right now. Not too sure why, but whatevs. This does, however, explain the title of this particular post. Nothing's too set in stone in my mind right now, so everything is a "work in progress". Seriously though, I'm drawing a huge blank right now.


My little brother will be coming to visit soon, hooray! Random? Yes, yes it is. But yeah, in case you all couldn't tell, I love my family. I have 5 siblings whom I love very much. When we were younger we had a close relationship, but I feel like as we've all gotten older and left the house, we've slowly grown apart. It kills me. So, I am going to try to talk to them all at least once a week, hopefully a lot more though. The problem is that none of us are big phone conversationalists. But we'll see what happens. Anyways, he will be staying with us for a little while since summer break is finally here! Woot! I'm so excited and can't wait! Especially since he teased me and claimed there's something very important he HAS to tell me, but he won't do it until he gets here. :-P Brat.

I think it will be fun though. My ultimate goal is to organize something where all of my siblings and I can just hang out like we did as kids. But, with our varied schedules and responsibilities and the split of my parents it seems like this is going to be kind of challenging. But who doesn't love a challenge, right?!

And I will end this post on another random not. I'm going to hoping to thinking about doing Couch25K. I think it would be awesome and get me on track to becoming the healthier, fitter (and thinner) person I want to be. Wish me luck!

Besos y Abrazos

I Love My Sobrinos!

So, I'm pretty sure I haven't said this in my last 5 posts, but I have 4 nieces and nephews. I love all of them with all of my heart and think they are all so precious. Well, last night I was talking to the youngest niece on the phone and she said "Hi! And I love you a lot and I'm giving you a big hug."

....seriously?! My heart just about melted, it was so sweet!

Over the years I've been blessed to receive the limitless and innocent love that children have to give and so I just wanted to dedicate this particular post to my nieces and nephews, especially since one of them celebrated his birthday today. I love you all so much!
