“Well it’s aaall right, we’re goin’ to the end of the line!”

December 1, 2009 3 comments

So I made a pretty big decision this past weekend. While we were deep in the heart o’ Texas visiting my mom’s family (Jenn had an absolute blast, by the way), I got to thinking about how life will be for us once we’re married. I mean, I’ve thought about our married life since a few months into our relationship, but I digress. Anyway, I was thinking about this blog, and I asked myself, do I really need to keep up with this after we’re married? How much time will I be taking away from our quality time if I continue to update a blog that’s just for my life as an individual?

So I made a choice. I’m going to officially end this blog when we get married in June.

Now now, friend, dry those tears (haha!). I’ll still be around. In fact, I’ve already registered a NEW blog for both Jenn and myself to use after we’re married. Plus, I’ve registered another blog that we will be using for a specific purpose. I don’t want to say anything about it, but I think y’all are really going to get a kick out of it. It’s something else I thought up while we were on the road this weekend. And now I’ll stop talking about it, because I REALLY wanna tell y’all about it, but I want it to stay a surprise! GAH, I’m terrible at this. 🙂

Anyway, I’ll update here as much as I can over the next six months or so. Obviously, I’ve been more and more infrequent with the updates lately, and it’ll prob’ly stay that way until the end of the road here. But I do hope you’ll stick around until then. And once I’m done here, I hope you’ll check out our new blog when we get started on it. And that other blog, too. Y’know, the surprise one. Teehee.

BTW, in case you didn’t notice (and seriously, are you blind?), changed the theme here for the Christmas season. Yay!

Have a great day, friend!

Agradecido.

Can you believe it’s that time of year already? I’m off for the rest of the week after today, so this’ll be it until Monday. Jenn and I are spending Turkey Day at Aunt Martha’s house, then we’re going with my mom down to the Hill Country, and Jenn’s going to meet Mom’s side of the family for the first time ever. Very exciting!

As we take the time to celebrate this wonderful holiday full of family, friends, and the best food in the universe, don’t forget to count your blessings and be thankful for what you have in your life. In these turbulent times, it’s more important than ever to remember that while there’s a lot we don’t have, there’s plenty more that we DO have.

I am thankful for the Heavenly Father above, and his son who was sent to die for our sins, both of whom I would be completely lost without.

I am thankful for my beautiful and amazing fiance, who I’ll be marrying in just a little over six months and spending the rest of my life with.

I am thankful for my awesome parents, who have been there for me more times than I can count.

I am thankful for my excellent friends, who bring so much laughter into my life.

I am thankful for my job, which allows me to earn the money I need to pay my bills.

I am thankful for my college education, which I will be completing in the Spring so I can earn MORE than the money I need to pay my bills. 🙂

I am thankful for you, friend. Thank you for reading my quaint little ol’ blog whenever you get a chance. I’m not exactly bringing in massive amounts of traffic here, but I know I have a dedicated few who enjoy reading my blog as much as y’all can. And that’s all I need.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, my dear friends. I hope you are able to enjoy it as much as I will. And when it’s over with, let’s all celebrate that magical time of year where we dust off the Christmas albums and listen to them until our ears bleed. Ha!

So what are you up to this week? Travel plans? Eating plans? Sleeping plans?

Hawaii, here we come!

So on Friday night, Jenn and I went with my folks to see the travel agent, and we are now officially going to Kauai, HI, for our honeymoon! A week of fun in the sun, baby! WOO-HOO!

Jenn and I are just beside ourselves now that the plans are set in stone. Reading the brochures and talking about what all we’re going to do on the trip has just made us all sorts of giddy. And the wedding is still a little over six months away! LOL!

LOUD NOISES.

It could only be Friday.

I have a new theory about morning traffic around my place of employment. I’m calling it Big C’s Theory of Student/Rain Relationships:

“On any given day, the length of the tardy lines outside the Assistant Principals’ offices is directly proportionate to how much it’s been raining that morning.”

Seriously, friend, you can put money on that. It’s absolutely absurd how late the students are when there’s rain coming down. And apparently, I had the blessed luck of being behind most of these kids on the road this morning. As a result, I was a couple of minutes late. Lame.

Anyway, TGIF. I’m going to get my hurah cut after school, then Jenn and I are meeting my dad at his travel agent’s office so we can figure out our honeymoon to Hawaii. To say we’re excited is a bit of an understatement. 🙂 Have a great weekend!

I’m Provocative in Writeing!

Why hello fellow forum people! I just wanted to establish myself here as this looks like a dialect right interesting forum! I myself am provocative in things like writeing and computer revamping so if anyoune needs serve farm out me identify! I also Suffer from Sciatica so if you aslo have this condition cause to me know so we can share out some stretches!

How’s that for bizarre? I got that in my Spam folder as a comment here.

So this weekend freakin’ rocked. Saturday was the Grand Life Expo at church, which was a blastie blast. Food, classic cars, farm animals, dogs, bounce houses, music, all free. Very cool stuff. Then Sunday night, we had a party for the Youth called The Awakening, which featured laser tag, basketball, pizza, the Trae Castles Band, and an illusionist named Jared Hall. Jay Lowder also spoke to them that night, and it was intense. We had 50 kids come to Christ that night, it was amazing. We also gave away to the kids an iPod Touch, Airsoft guns, Coach purses, a Vizio TV, and a car. Yep, that’s right, a car. It was just a little ’91 Ford Probe. But hey, it was some kid’s first car, so that was awesome. Plus, it had been totally restored, so it was in practically new condition when the kid got it. Great stuff. 🙂

All in all, it was definitely one of those weekends I didn’t wanna have to go back to work after experiencing. Don’t you hate that? You have this life-changing, mind-blowing, multi-hyphenated-experience… then you have to go back to being Clark Kent. It sucks, y’know? I don’t know how we all get through it without going crazy.

Nevertheless, on and on we go. At least we have some chilly weather to enjoy. I’ve been wearing my jacket most of the past couple of days at work. It’s kind of a weird feeling, I’m not used to being cold like this on a regular basis. Usually I’m the one who’s all like, “Aww man, you weenie! Take off the jacket and be a man!” But now I’m getting cold a whole lot easier for some reason. I wonder if it’s my metamobomolism or the new diet or something.

That’s all for now. Have a good one, friend.

Frahdy, what are you doing to me?

Srsly dood, shouldn’t be this busy today. I’ve had to work on at least seven laptops this morning. Three had to be reimaged, one had a broken keyboard, and one had a dead motherboard. Those last two I couldn’t fix, so I have to get the tech specialist to come out here and fix ’em for me. Guh.

Anyway, things have calmed down a little now, so I’m enjoying a nice sit. Yay sitting.

Hah, check out this picture. Doesn’t it look like I have long black hair in it?

Isn’t that funny? It’s just a pillow, but I look, like, Greek or something. LOL

Have a great weekend, friends!

Gettin’ there.

So today I’m wearing this nice brown polo shirt that Jenn got me for my birthday back in May. It’s a 2XL, and thanks to my dieting this week, today is the first time I’ve been able to wear it comfortably. 🙂

It’s been a lot easier this time around. I guess because of the new rules Jenn and I have set. Mainly, no soda, no sweets, and no fried foods for the next 18 weeks. Diet soda is okay, and we’re allowed 25 “cheats” during the 18 week period. So if we wanted to get a burger and fries, that would be one cheat (because technically, you can eat a burger on this diet). Not bad, huh? You’re also supposed to drink 72 oz. of water every day and work out, but I’m not so great on those. I wish I had time to go work out, then I’d be shedding pounds in no time.

Anyway, I think I’m finally past the caffeine withdrawal headaches. I did have a Coke Zero on Tuesday, and that seemed to have helped me feel better. I had a Diet Sierra Mist Cranberry yesterday, which is just delicious. I wish they had that year round, and not just during the holidays. That is some tasty stuff, friend. But yeah, the headaches seem to be gone finally, and I’m feeling SO much better now. Still kinda tired, but that’s just from pushing a crap-ton of mobile lab carts this morning. I try to encourage everyone to sign up early and not wait until the last minute, but that doesn’t really work. I know that most teachers do tend to have to sign up at the last minute for a variety of reasons, so I certainly don’t blame them for doing so. Besides, it IS a good morning workout for me. 🙂

That’s about all for now. Have a great day, friend.
