Can I have some?

welcome to my blog.

a place to post. a place to eat oreos. a place to vent. a place to heal.

i started this blog so i could use a different outlet besides munching on fattening oreos. as if that has done any good... *mind wanders to oreo package in the house...*

then i realized that oreos can be semi symbolic. if you are are that crazy about oreos that is. which... i am.

eating oreos is therapeutic for me. when i am struggling or when i need a pick me up. they have chocolate. and sugar. both of which help lift my mood. not to mention that i eat them soaked with milk, which is my miracle drink.

i post my posts to not only get stuff out. there may be people who read my blog who have been in the same kind of situations as i have. i hope reading them and knowing that others have gone through things like i have, will be to you what eating oreos does to me.

and yes. i didn't capitalize anything in here. i just felt like it. deal with it.

munch up.

Happy Homecoming

Well we are moved in now. Boxes are everywhere. But what has really made this post possible is the fact that we now have internet! I have not had internet all weekend long. :(

SO. That said, I will commence to the rest of the post.

Saturday was crazy. I always knew it would be crazy. Friday was pretty bad too. We closed Friday, I had a mid-term that I missed because of it that I took yesterday. I also had a concert Friday night, which had a rehearsal with the band alumni that came to play with us as it was Homecoming week. That being said, Saturday had a parade that I marched in (as a member of the marching band), including a game afterward. Rocket Scientist was packing/moving that day with parents and other family who helped. I wish I could have done something to help other than play my trumpet... but it didn't happen that way.

After the game, I got home and we decided to have pizza for dinner. We went out, ordered pizza and went to the store. After we picked up our pizza, we got home (near 9 'o clock) I was trying to unlock the house and during so Bug said that he needed to throw up. He said such things earlier in the day and only spit in the toilet, so I didn't take him very seriously. Nevertheless, I did try harder to get the key in the lock in the dark night. Which sometimes causes more problems. Well, he threw up on the porch there getting ... stuff all over the lower part of my pants, and on all our shoes. After freaking out a bit, I smirked a bit and said, "Happy Homecoming." :)

I failed to mention anything regarding the house stuff. In Utah, well... I think more the company that we were using, we couldn't have the financing and recording on the same day that we closed, which meant that the house wouldn't officially be ours until yesterday. Which is what happened. BUT, we have stayed here every night since Saturday. Thankfully the sellers were okay with that as it was still officially their house and if we had burned it down (don't know why we would... or anyone for that matter) it would be their problem not ours. I was told that we would have to sign a waiver saying we wouldn't sue them or something if we broke our leg or something like that, but I never saw that... maybe because I didn't ever see sellers or anyone for that matter on Saturday.

*deep breath*

All that said, I am tired of all this box... stuff. But am trying to move in as well and efficiently as possible with two kids and being a full time student. The right side of my neck has been sore or something for a few days. I was REALLY hoping that I could see people who came to help on Saturday, one of which is Rocket Scientist's brother in law, and happens to be a chiropractor... Ah well.

I'll take pictures as soon as things are a bit more settled. Don't want to post pictures of our cardboard decorations.

Stay tuned. ^_^

Our house!

Many people have requested pictures, so here you are.

The color before was some sort of faded uh... weird kind of green. We picked red 'cause the front room and the kitchen (the windows belong to said rooms) are going to be dark red, black, and white. I'm still not sure if the front room will have exactly the same color scheme as the kitchen (kitchen for sure is red, black, and white) but it will be something similar. The couches we have have a dark red (kinda) couch covers on them. As the house is old and the paint was peeling they had to repaint.

Ahh... just looking at it makes me smile. :)

Good news! Good news!!

Amazingly uplifted right now, I just have to post!

Today we went to our soon to be new ward to meet and visit with people. Get to know them a little before we actually moved. SO glad I did. On our way to go to the church, we drove past our almost house. They had to repaint the shudders and other uh... trims because the paint was pealing and with the oldness of the house, lead paint was an issue. They asked what color we would want (nice enough already) and as we were wanting the front room a dark redish kind of color (as well as the kitchen) we decided to ask for dark red. Not like a maroon. Maroon is more purpley. Anyway, so we drove by the house... it looks AMAZING! I totally love it.

Second good news... I was kind of nervous to walk into the chapel as well, we don't expect a lot of move ins and move outs even though we are in a college town because this ward is surrounded by more houses than apartments. So we would certainly stand out. Anyway, so we were a little late, made our way and soon after I sat down, I caught someone's eye across the chapel. One of my best friends EVER! I was totally shocked to see her there as I hadn't heard that she and her hubby had ever moved. Turns out they did, and they live in the small apartment complex RIGHT NEXT TO OUR NEW HOUSE! I'm like... ecstatic about this! So amazingly awesome!

I can't stop smiling when I think about it again.

The tests have come in... it is proven fact.

Oreos in tummy = brain function.

Simple fact.

Who knows?

So, I know that I want to post, but I'm not sure what to post about.

So.... here's to randomness!

Well, school is going well. I turned in my first short story fiction today and can't work on it until we workshop it. I'm kind of nervous about that, as I have never had people look at my story, gather and take it apart as if there is some sort of underlying theme (if there is, I don't know it... what does that tell you?). I have had friends read what I wrote and give me advice and edits, but as far as taking it apart and all that... I have never had that happen before.

That makes me kind of nervous. But we'll see what happens. Life is going on and things are happening, and I feel like I should be doing more. Oh well. Things happen the way they will happen and I can't do anything about it. I'll just have to grin and bear it.

School and house .... stuff.

Wow... is it just me or is it October? How did that happen??

Well... with it being October, the month of Halloween, mid-terms, my second son's birthday, and the closing date for buying our new house... wow. Crazy.

Anyway, school is going pretty good. I am enjoying most, if not all, of my classes. Which actually surprised me. English 2010 I wasn't so sure about as it is Persuasive Writing... but I am actually enjoying it. Who knew? The only class that I actually find kind of boring sometimes is the one that I was most excited about. Intro to Folklore. Weird.

But yeah, I am doing pretty good in all the classes. There have been a few slip ups, a few assignments that I forgot or whatnot, but in almost all the things I have turned in and done, I have been getting pretty good grades. (and don't worry Mom... the assignment that I forgot about was in a class that will drop the two worst scores.) I actually scraped a 97% score in the only test I have had, which kind of shocked me. All in all, things are moving along great in school.

I have heard that I'm crazy to try to buy a house during school. I'm starting to wonder if it is true. Nevertheless, we are still going through it, and intend to move this month. Things have been... ok... for the most part. There have been ups and downs which I'm sure are common with buying a house. For the most part though, any stress I have had from buying the house was mainly caused by my mind running wild, spiraling downward in negativity. I tend to do that... But things are moving along fine no matter what my mind imagines up. I'll try to post more regularly, but don't count on it. I admit that once school started I totally forgot that I even had a blog. I'll try to not have my mind forget as easily.

Oreos up!
