Life and Love

Hi. I don't have a heap to talk about, but I wanted to say hey! Oh, guess what? Caleb got me a lap top! he's working a day of over time so we can afford it... so now I'm a real student, a real blogger... however I haven't taken it anywhere because I don't have a bag... that's next on the to buy list! I am at work right now, so I can't put any picture on my blog.. so sorry. :(
Um lets see... oh, pray for our insurance birth situation. I've been resubmitting it for 5 months now and they still won't pay for the birth-- even though they told me in the first place last August that they would. So, I'm appealing it. I'm using Pre Paid Legal to write me a nice letter and then i'm getting all my facts together on why having my baby at the birthing center is a better place-- ie less $, no complications or meds, and an environment I felt safe in. Anyways, I'm doing lots of research and have written a pretty good letter myself (I think!). So, it's all got to be put together by the end of the week and then I'm sending it in. Pray that they would see our side of it, and that they were the ones to misinform us.
ok, that's about it.
Bye for now.

Art class

Tonight I spent the whole of my art class actually doing art! It was so much fun. We did little kid art, so it wasn't anything too special, but it was really fun. We cut out a picture from colored paper. I would scan it, but I think my scanner would rip off the paper and I need it for my portfolio for the end of class. The portfolio is worth 75% of my grade... so sorry, no pics.
Hope you are having fun at whatever you are doing!

Where have I been?

Sorry it's been so long. I have been processing stuff from my last post and haven't really felt like there was much to talk about.

I do have some stuff to talk about now! We went on a trip to Philadelphia, PA for a wedding this last weekend and had a great time! I was also my birthday weekend- where I turned 24. I can't believe I'm almost half way through my 20's. Time flies. We had a blast in the city of brotherly love. Got to go to the most amazing art museum that I've been to in America. (you know the place- where Rocky climbed the steps during his training!) and also got to see the Liberty Bell and Independance Hall as well as Christ Church (it's one of the oldest churches in America. They've held service there for over 300 years!). There were so many other things to see and do, but we only had 2 days in the city. So, we crammed about 3 days worth of site seeing and have called it a great trip.

Oh, and the wedding was beautiful- it was set in this country estate with wonderful landscape and trees. It was so pretty. I'm so thankful that we were able to make it. Samantha, the bride, is one of Caleb's childhood friends, and I know she was blessed that we were there.

On a side note, I am going to be working out extra hard the next few weeks. I got asked if I was pregnant again-- at the wedding, by the bride's grandpa! Nice, huh? I don't think I look pregnant, but maybe other people think I do. I'm totally sick of this extra 15 pounds, and this was a really hard thing to hear. So, I'm going off of sugary things again and plan on working out a couple times a week. Wish me luck and don't ever tell someone congratulations for being pregnant when you aren't sure and they don't look like they're 8 months along!

The End
Pictures to follow sometime soon.

I'm in Process

I did it again-- I got really frustrated and upset about something I could do nothing about. Why am I getting so mad? Why am I not living out of who I know I am- that is a confident, courageous, lovable, and MELLOW woman. I seem to have forgotten who I am somewhere along the last few months. I am so ready to blame everyone else and even blame my emotions for how I'm feeling. Yet, I don't sit down and think about my part in it-- or even if I don't have a part-- I don't sit down and calm down. Who cares if someone almost hit me last week. They didn't. Who cares if I drove to Caldwell yesterday to buy something and the person wasn't home due to issues I didn't know about. In the whole scheme of things, these little trivial things don't matter. As my mom use to tell me "don't make mountains out of mole hills". I don't want to be stuck here being that person anymore. I want to relax and be ok with other's crap, knowing who I am and being able to pray for them, rather than get so angry with them.
Do you ever feel like you know what to do and don't do it? It's so hard to be who God made me to be. Please pray for me as I continue on in my process.
