I know I’m being vague right now. I’m sorry. I won’t be revealing what I’m talking about because it’s oh-so-very-personal. But I feel so eery-strange right now that I really needed to write something down. I don’t even know what to write. Just that I kinda feel like crying in both a sad and happy sort of way. I just feel that I need to have one of those cries that doesn’t really mean something in particular- it’s just a damn good cry. You know the ones?
I have such an abstruse realization of my existence being blessed beyond my total comprehension at this point, that I’m not sure how to react to it. Gratitude can be my only reaction. Humble gratitude.
Can you understand what it is to see the bigger picture and then to remember back to when you couldn’t see anything at all? It’s the most amazing thing in the world. It’s like this incredibly brilliant light has been lit just for you.
Yesterday my day ran from 5 am to midnight. I was on campus, either in class or at work, for 11 of those hours. It was a very long and very busy day. And now I’m back to do it all over again.
I’m tired. Really tired. But I’m happy. Work is good. Classes are good. People are awesome and my life is awesome. I had to take a small moment this morning to breath, smile and reflect on everything that I’ve been blessed with lately. It makes being tired so so worth it.
Well, not quite..but classes do start up again today. I’m back full time with two jobs. Is it wierd that I’m excited about that? Hopefully I’ll survive! Wish me luck!
Bedding is expensive! Especially for a king size bed. Whose idea was it to get a king size bed, anyway? Just kidding. I actually love, love our huge bed. But finding bedding that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg is tough! I was pretty tickled to come across this 7 piece King size bed set at Overstock.com with the ticket price of only $103!! Sweet deal!
Well, hello again! My little blogging break was very refreshing, but truthfully, I really missed being here. I thought I’d come back with something fun- our engagement photos!
We just got them back yesterday and I could hardly wait to share them. We are really happy with the way they turned out.
Our photographer was Tawsha Hannig with The Color Blue Photography. Didn’t she do a phenomenal job?
So yeah, life has been pretty hectic lately. I kinda got surprised with a super awesome job offer a few weeks ago. So for the last two weeks I’ve been spending all of my time trying to absorb everything I can before the girl I’m replacing leaves.
Currently I’m at that new job stage where you’re given a task to do and instead of getting down to business, you first have to sit and stare for ten minutes while you process all the steps you have to go through in your mind asking yourself “Okay, what do I do next and how do I do that?” Then you have to try to implement all the things you rushed through during training.
I realize this little hump will pass and I’ll be zipping around the digital program, our three different servers, and the paper files in no time. But for now, it’s slow going and I find myself getting temporarily frustrated because I just want to be good at my job, right now!
Not only that but I’ve been doing a lot of extra work for my other boss to help get ready for our annual training day.
Needless to say, much of my free time has been spent creating, editing, researching, discussing, brainstorming, and pulling my hair out while grinning ear to ear. I really do love these new goodies in my life.
I’ve been realizing for some time that the summer was slowly getting away from me but I haven’t been able to do much about it. Classes will be starting in less than two weeks and I’m feeling a bit mushy in the brain about it. I’m not too excited about trying to get settled into classes, develop and discipling myself to stick to a homework schedule as well as try to get comfortable in my new position.
When I get home at night, I can’t think, I can’t be creative anymore, and I can’t possibly come up with a decent blog post to entertain you all. So for now, I’m not taking a blogging break (because then I may never come back!) I’m just going in to chill mode for awhile. I’ll be focusing on classes and work and posting when I have enough energy to. I think that’s a better plan than just posting something blah just for the sake of posting, don’t you?
