A Night Full of Thoughts

Today's one of those nights where I really miss him. The kind where I could burst into tears at any moment. Nobody ever told me that we'd go eleven months without seeing each other. That at times things would be incredibly difficult. Maybe its a good thing someone didn't. In eleven months, I've gone through so many challenges with Mister.  So many surprises that I would never have believed if someone had told me. We've beat the odds. We've survived. In moments like tonight I just want to run my fingers up and down his skin. To look into his eyes and get lost. To be wrapped up in his arms and be at home again.

With everything that's happened, sometimes I wonder if the hardest times are yet to come. Being a couple hour plane trip away from each other, but knowing I'm sleeping alone. Seeing him off to Afghanistan and praying with all my heart that he's going to come home to me. Once engaged, knowing I can't spend quality time with my fiance. Once married, knowing every one is going to question our reason. It's simple: he's the one.

With every trial, the only result is strength. Strength to love one another more. Strength to grow closer. Strength to keep pushing on. Strength to know that nothing can tear us apart. Not distance. Not war. Not even these lonely nights. I'm forever his.

It's Official!

I stress myself out way to easily.

I ended up dropping my accounting class last week. I hate that I dropped, especially since I had a high C, but to keep my sanity I had to. That's three W's on my transcript. Awesome. The tipping point for me was getting a migraine from being so stressed out. My dad called a nurse and she told him to take me to the hospital, but once the medicine started kicking in and taking a few minutes to breathe into a good ol' brown bag, I was fine. I would not have a problem if I didn't have to experience another one of those!

I do have one big weight off my shoulder: I have come to the decision that I am going to major in Fine Arts and be a photographer! My ultimate goal: get my bachelors degree, open my own business and run my own website! I plan to have a website that has a blog on it which makes me really excited. It's cool to know that I will be able to make this apart of my life.

As for what's to come in the next week:
-awesome websites/tips for getting great travel deals.
-some yummy HEALTHY recipes (they're amazing!!!!)
-and as always, more of my life as I know it + updates.

Stay tuned :)

Since I've Been Gone

I haven't been on much lately so there is a lot to catch up on...

I've started getting ready for Mister to come home. It's a little less than 30 days (eeek!) so I figured I should probably start. My lounge area still needs to be redecorated (not a huge priority), my room still needs to be finished, I have to figure out his birthday gift (any suggestions??) and I need to buy a bunch of other misc. things. Luckily most of the things I need to do can be done now - makes things less hectic later on.

Yesterday my parents and I got back from Oklahoma. We went for a few days to visit my brother. While we were gone our dog got very sick. We brought her to the vet today and found out she has Pancreatitis. We have to wait to see how she reacts to the shots, but I'm hoping that she'll be okay. They told us it is fatal so I'm praying that she's going to push through.

I know this shot, but I have somethings I need to do before work. I will write again shortly.

A "Special" Thanks To Ms. Crazy

As you may have saw in my last post, the last 24 hours have a little interesting. I could not sleep for the life of me last night (a whopping hour and a half). I was just so creeped out by "Ms. Crazy". I wanted to make sure that she would have no contact with either of us - what so ever. Mister kind of made it sound like he was going to stop talking to her until things cooled down,  but I expressed my feelings of how I really didn't feel comfortable with her being a part of our lives and then he reassured me that he meant he was done talking to her for good. It just makes me so appreciative for him and love him even more. Never did I have to ask him to stop talking to her to begin with - he did that on his own. Never did I have to tell him what she was doing was inappropraite - he stood up for me right away and told her to stop when she first started "confessing her love to him".

I can't express how many times I've heard simliar stories to mine and they end up in a complete mess. This has just made things between Mister and I that much stronger. So in an odd way, I have to say thank you to Ms. Crazy.

Thank you for making us stronger.
Thank you for giving me another reason why I love my man so much.
Thank you for bringing us closer as a couple.
Thank you for making a big mistake and passing up on my Marine...
...your a little too late - I'm not letting him go!

When Another Girl Wants YOUR Man...

Earlier today I recieved a friend request on Facebook from a girl I don't know. I noticed that she was friends with my Marine though and that she graduated from the same school as him. I added her, thinking she was just a friend of his. WELL, after a while I kind of forgot about it and while texting Mister later in the evening it resurfaced in my brain so I asked who she was. He wrote me back right away and said delete her. I'm thinking.. uhh why?? So I asked him and he said that she was a friend of another girl that he went to school with. Now I'm thinking, so what? Soooo I asked him why that was a problem and that's when he told me to get on Skype...

There I am.. in my robe with no make up on and fresh out of the shower so my hair is a mess getting on Skype (sexy eh?). I get on and Mister starts to explain to me how this girl (a friend of the girl that added me who I haven't met, but I've heard of) told Mister that she was newly single, realized how she wants to be with him, and that he should break up with me so that they could be together. Excuse me????!!! To add to the wonderfulness of that - her status is about how they are meant to be together and why wait because its going to happen anyways. I could kick that girls ass! Thankfully, Mister has been ignorning her texts and stopped talking to her. I trust him completely and know he wouldn't do anything, I just hate how people think its okay to do something like that when someone is CLEARLY in a relationship. I mean HELLO GIRL when the quote under his picture says, "I cant help but to think that i am the luckiest guy alive... I have finally found the girl that every time i see her i become speechless... every time i think about her i can't help but smile. She is my everything my Angel. I love you (insert my name here)" you'd think she'd get the hint that we're serious.
 
Part of me would love to tell her off, but I'm better than that. I'll be the lady that I am and keep my distance. My man has it taken care of. It just bugs me that someone could do that... :/
 
I obviously deleted this girls friend and blocked them both. They don't need to know my personal business and I don't need them checking up on me. I don't understand what kind of satisfaction the girl would get by "stalking" me?? It's all just a bunch of childness if you ask me!!!

Did Someone Punch Me in the Face?

Allergies are not being good to me. My eyes hurt and it doesn't help that I have sinus problems as it is. It just makes it all worse really.  My surgery date has moved to November 12. I honestly just want it done now. On top of having the stint put in place, we're going to see if my doctor will remove the other pollup in my cheek area. It's been causing a lot of pressure and I know my pollups are causing me to be absolutely exhausted which in turn affects my school and life in general. Probably not the best when you have to take a few naps a day just to function.

I've been trying really hard to NOT countdown days until Mister is home. I know most people say the opposite, but I've found that by not looking at the countdown constantly, time goes by faster. I love looking at it and seeing a much smaller number until he's home. Its beyond exciting!

I'm planning on visiting my Marine at Pendleton a couple months after he arrives there. I'm thinking January since I won't be in school. If anyone wants to get together, let me know!! :)

Off to study for my mid exams... I need a B on my accounting test in order to stay in the class. Talk about stressful! I'll write again soon!

His Stuff is Gone!

A couple of days ago they picked up Mister's TV, chair and other big items to ship them over to Cali. I can't believe this is all happening so fast! Before it seemed like we had months and months to go, but now time is flying by.

The butterflies in my tummy are starting to kick in, but until he's actually home I'm trying really hard not get my hopes up as to when I'll see him. With the military, you just never know what's going to happen. Things change all the time. So for now, I'm waiting anxiously.

It's nice to know that we're one step closer to him being home :)

Calling All Photographers and Chefs!!!

I'm sorry that I've been away. It's mid exams this coming week and I've been really working hard to study, study, study! One of my assignments is coming up and I'm hoping one of you could help! I'm suppose to interview someone that is a photographer or pastry chef... would anyone be interested in letting me send them an email with some questions for them to answer *hint the interview part*?? If you are a photographer or pasty chef (heck, any chef really) and are interested in lending a helping hand, please email me!! My email link is at the top of my blog. Thanks all and I hope you have a blessed day!

Sometimes a Girl Can't Help It

I know I haven't posted in a while. I'm sorry. Really I am. I have been actively logging in and looking at blogs, I just haven't had time to write or comment. I fail.

Things have been crazy in my life lately. School has me more overwhelmed than ever before and work has me constantly occupied since they are now giving more hours and responsibilities. My grades right now are alright. To be honest, I have no idea how they're being maintained, because I feel like I'm not doing very well at all on my things. I keep seeing the percentage 60 come up on quizzes. Thank goodness for my homework assignments otherwise I'd be dropping two classes right now. Wouldn't look good.

Things with the boy are alright. I dont know, maybe its because I'm a girl and I need some kind of attention, but things just have been a little hard on me. The days until he's home are getting smaller and we're both getting to the point where we're just tired of being away from each other. It's been over ten months now and knowing its just a couple more is itching away at us. Lord, give us strength!

I know I need a break from school life. Gosh, do I ever. I'm just hoping that I won't completely break before mid exams...
