    Hi y’all! Didja miss me?!? :) Thanks soooo much for all of the emails! Life for me has been nutzo outta control! Sooooo even though I know it’s been a while, here’s a little picture update until I can fill y’all in on everything later!

    The pics from top to bottom are: My hair is back to pink (yay!), I got engaged (!) on Oct 19th at a Pittsburgh Penguin’s hockey game (I LOVE my pink sapphire ring!) and the rest are of Becky’s wedding! The last one is of the Sari I got to keep after the Indian ceremony the day before ! Mama B had it made especially for me! Isn’t it gorgeous?!? :)

    More updates later tonight! :)

    Still better than Tuesday! :)

    Hi all!! :) 

    Thanks for all of the messages! Sorry I haven’t been able to respond, it’s just been difficult to find a moment to sit down and write any updates for a while! I’ve been running so much with Seth, his girls and everything in between that I am to the point of near exhaustion most of the time! Buuuuut, I am really loving life right now so I refuse to complain! :)

    - I started a new job in May with a national health care insurance company, processing medical claims! I went through a month of training only to find out that 90% of the information I was taught has little to no use in my daily job! (Nice, huh? Gotta love big corporations!) But I will be able to work from home 2 days a week once I reach my hourly production goals, which will be completely awesome!

    -  Alex is with me for the summer again! I have so much planned for her and Seth’s girls (Pirate Games, Hershey, Kennywood, Del Grosso…), so it is going to be a busy couple of months! She just spent an entire week with Seth’s girls and they get along famously! :) This really makes me smile because I was really worried they wouldn’t get along!

    -  As you can tell, things with Seth and I are going swimmingly! So much that we’re even looking to move in together in the next few months! I can’t believe how much things have changed between us over the past 3 months, as he has gone from a guy who could only give a little to someone who now wants to give me the world! I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life that I have truly been “in love”, as I finally feel like someone loves me just as much as I love them!(**swoooon**) :)

    -  My birthday is next Sunday and I’m celebrating by going to NY for the weekend to visit with Mama and Papa B.  I’ll try to post pics!

    Not much else is new with me to post! Life is just really good and it’s scary how I almost have it all! I just never believed it would happen to me! :)

    Much love and blessings to everyone! :D

    And yes…today is STILL muuuuuuuuuuuuuch better than Tuesday!

    Helllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooo!!! :)

    Yeeeeeeah…I’ve been MIA for a while! Sorry about that! :)

    So, for those who are interested, here’s what’s been going on in my life!

    - I no longer work for my current employer. After the nine millionth time of being “targeted” by my supervisor, I finally had enough and quit last Friday. In retrospect, I kind of wish I had thought about this a little more before handing in my resignation buuuuuut I feel a certain kind of freedom that I haven’t experienced in a reallllly long time and I’m going to go with it! Plus I have faith that things will work out in the end and that I will be directed to my true passion again. Soooooo while I really should be more upset about everything that transpired up until this point, my sister reminded me that this job gave me my life back and I can’t really be all that upset about walking away, right? :)

    - Seth and I are still going really, really strong! He shaved off his goatee (after he said he never would) and has been at my house nearly every day for the last 2 months. He even introduced me to his girls after we took them to the movies and then to the mall, where I was able to get all of them to skip through the halls like goofy idiots! Yay!! :) Ya know…I’m sooooooooooo glad that I didn’t give up on this relationship because the “Seth” that is in my life right now makes me extremely happy. And that is the most important thing! :)

    - I’m heading to Harrisburg this weekend to celebrate Aidan’s 4th birthday! (Oy…Where does the time go!?!) I’m not really looking forward to this as things between me and my Aunt are really strained right now and I just don’t need the drama - but it is what it is, right? :)

    - Even with all of the problems going on with my family, it only made me realize how blessed I am to have a network of friends that surround and support me in times of crisis, as well as in times of delight. I would ask what I did to deserve all of this but truth be told, I worked really hard to get to this point in my life and I’m going to just sit back and bask in the glow of my accomplishments! :)

    - My last session with Dr. B is next Wednesday. At first I was extremely anxious about this positive chapter closing in my life but now I believe that this is the Universe’s way of telling me that I’m ready to live life again without the comfort of Dr. B’s safety net. She gave me most of the tools I need to survive in a healthy manner…now I simply have to use them! :)

    Overall, life is really, really good for me right now! I’m still running around like a chicken with my head cut off and trying to maintain a healthy balance, which never seems to be found. But maybe one day maybe I will find it…until then, I’m just going to keep living my life to the best of my ability and hope that one day I won’t have to search for it anymore! And I wish for exactly the same to all of you! :)

    (I’ll try not to neglect my page anymore, as I do miss all of you! I’m still trying to find that whole “balance” thing…ya know? :) hee hee)

    Yep, y’all! Today is waaaaaaaaaaaay better than Tuesday! :D

    Life :)

    Life is good right now! :)

    Not much to report on, but here y’all go:

    - Seth and I are doing really, really great! He has officially met everyone that is extremely important to me and they all adore him - even Melissa and Alex! :) 

    -  Having Sam as a roommate has actually been fantastic and I really miss her when she’s gone!  I’m trying to convince her to go to therapy to deal with all of this bullshit with her Mother now instead of later, so we shall see!

    -  Super Bowl party at Sara’s house tomorrow! It will just be me, her and the kiddos eating Chicken Chimichunga’s, Beans, Salsa/Chips and my famous Bacon dip!! Oooooooh yeaaaaaah… Bring. It. On! :)

    -  Impatiently waiting for Spring to hurry up and get here because that means I get to go back out on the Harley with Seth! Who knew I’d be so keen on becoming a biker babe? :)

    -  Dr. B wants me to scale my sessions back to once a month (that’s a huge compliment) but fat Amy is really rearing her ugly head a LOT lately and I need to figure out why, sooooooooo my answer to her was “Thanks! But not right now!”  :)

    -  Mama G tried to rope me into coaching the Y’s 8 and under kids this Summer and then again in the Fall by telling me how many of the parents requested my services.  Yes, it was a very proud moment but at the same time I don’t want coaching to become my entire life again so I told her there would have to be certain conditions that would need to be met before I gave her a confirmed “Yes!”

     -  Beckers texted me last weekend and said that Mama B needs my measurements because she is buying me a Saree (Or Sari?!?! Google spelled it both ways…) when she goes to India.  Now how cool is THAT?!?! :)

    -  Beckers is also coming into town next weekend because we are going bridesmaid dress shopping in Pittsburgh, followed by eating dinner at an Indian restaurant.  Seth warned me that I probably won’t be able to eat very much because mostly everything is hot, so this should be very interesting…

    Like I said…not much is new with me so I’m gonna close my post exactly the way I began it:  Life is good right now. :)

    Hope y’all are saying the very same thing about your own lives!! :D

    Break In

    By: Halestorm

    …You let me fall apart without letting go…Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole…I didn’t want to escape…From the bricks that I laid down…You are the only one…The only one that sees me…Trusts me and believes me….You are the only one…The only one that knows me…And in the dark you show me…Yeah it’s perfectly reckless…Damn you leave me defenseless…So break in…

    …See the stars align…And you know it’s all for you…Down were you before, will you come alive for this?…There’s a calm inside the storm, if you know just what you’re trying for…See what you could be, when you try to shine for me…Why not now?…

    I don’t really like people who talk about how wonderful their lives are because it almost makes me want to call “Bullshit!” in their general direction - but I gotta tell ya, mine sooooooooooo does NOT suck right now! :)
- Seth and I spent part of the day together this afternoon, which I was not expecting AT ALL as we both had family functions that we were not ready to subject each other to. BUT, in a surprising twist of a tasty delight, he agreed to go to lunch in order to meet Becky and Mama and Papa G!!! Yeah!!! HUGE!!! Of course, they all adored him and he liked them right back so I would say that things are falling into place quite nicely! :)
- Seth gave me the above Penguins shirt for Christmas and I absolutely adore it!!! :) Why? Well, when he told me a month and a half ago that he was a Penguins fan, I said “Oh Lord! Now I have to find a hot hockey player now too? Oy, will this never end? Ugggghhhh…” So, of course, I went online and started looking at the roster and immediately found Neal’s picture and said “Yep! That’s my man!” Now mind you, this was a one time remark and Seth remembered it! So, THAT my friends is why this shirt means so much to me - because he actually put some thought into my present by remembering something I said more than a month ago! :)
- My niece Sam moved in with me about a month and a half ago and I am loving every second of it! Her boyfriend Matt has even been here four times which makes me feel as though I have a welcoming home to spend time in! :)
- Sam is in nursing school and for her first semester her GPA is a 3.5!! I don’t know who this child is, but God certainly blessed her with brains!! :)
- My sister and niece didn’t come home for Christmas and it just didn’t feel the same without them here! :(
- This was the very first Christmas that I have woken up in a house completely alone! And let me tell you…as disorienting as it initially was, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
- My Aunt bought me a Heath Miller Steeler jersey for Christmas!! YAY!!! LOVE!!! :)
- My eating has been completely off the past week and I can tell that I haven’t been consuming as much as I should be because I’ve been really light headed the past few days. I hate food.
- I’m getting ready to head to my bestie’s house in about 10 minutes to celebrate Christmas with her and the kiddos! Sooooooooooooo excited!!! :)
Other than that, not much is new with me! Just trying to remember that God only gave me ONE day to thoroughly enjoy and that’s what I plan to do with every one I am given! :)
I really hope everyone had a kick ass holiday!! :)
And Yes folks…TODAY is sooooooooooooooo much effin’ better than Tuesday!! :D
