Life is happening.

yeah it's the week before finals again. I can't believe I only have two of these weeks left in my life... Unfortunately my vocal coach told me that things never change. haha. Awesome Phil.
So here I am thinking about cranking out a 5 page paper on *puke* Jackie Robinson, Mohammad Ali and Jack Johnson..... Baseball.... and politics???

Have I told you lately that I don't really like sports? I appreciate these boys and what they did for integration and black rights in sport...... But I really don't like athletes (the idea of their overpaid salaries) or the games that they play... Unless they are related to me or I love them lots.

I think it's due to the fact that I never played sports... Never. Not even youth soccer. I was a dance only girl. I never really participated in sports full out in class because why should I push myself for a game in class... (this is probably where my totally disregard for school came from.... as well as kickball.)

It drives Jake crazy that I'm not competitive... he never lets me on his team.... But then again this is a guy who was playing Put Put with his family when he was about 12-13 and missed the hole and threw, yes threw, his club.... Needless to say he was banned for the summer....

Such is my life. Needless to say I'm not letting him on my team either.

Wish me luck. I'm going to need it to crank out 5 pages in 2 days.... and total disconnection from the topic... it's gonna be hell.

So Close!!

This weekend was full of excitement... Only kinda not.

It was a good weekend for girl time, family time, husband time and any time other than writing a paper time.

Yean it's that time again.

I have a paper due this thursday and next thursday. I'm not too pleased about it other than the fact that ti means that I'll be practically done after they're turned in.

Then it'll mean a week vaca, summer classes, then a 4 week vaca, then my final quarter of college!!!!!

Who's amped?!!! that's right, MEEEEEEEEEE!

I also just found out today that my friend, KG, just got her student teaching job in our H-Town school district! That means a real reconnection now that she'll be back in town!! Yay KG!!! No more Athens! More drinking at biker bars and downing jello shots and walking on blacktop without shoes..... Good times!

Can you tell I'm avoiding starting my book review?

How do you help someone who you care about when you have absolutely no answers for them?

How can one person feel so helpless? It's frusterating. Especially with the situation.

But God created us with free will, right?

So hopefully God can help guide the situation in the direction as HE sees fit. It's just hard.... Waiting for the 'Ah-ha' moment from him.... If it even comes. Sometimes His way is more subtle than we want. But trusting in him is what's important. We, as His children, can only do so much....

I'm still going to try to help and be there.... But I just hope that it's enough.

Psalms 9:18But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.

Psalms 31:24Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

Psalms 33:18But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

Psalms 39:7"But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.

Psalms 43:5Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Psalms 71:5For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.

1 Corinthians 13:13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Ephesians 1:18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,

Hebrews 11:1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

  • New phones!!!!

  • House parties!!!!
  • Candles and other yummy things like that.
  • Understanding and loving parents, hubs and sibs.
  • Trust. It does wonders for friendships, relationships and work.
  • enviromental friendly acts. I love feeling good about using those reusable grocery bags!

What about you? Have you stopped to smell the roses today?

This weekend I made the biggest mistake of my life.
I allowed my kiki to have a sleepover....

The result = me sleeping in the hallway blocking access to the door so hubs could get some sleep before going to work on mother's day.

the insanity of 2 little monsters wrestling up and down the stairs over, and over, and over again at 3 in the morning was ridiculous.

The jingling of the tags and bells were too loud on Tavish's collar... So at 1:30 I taped them together with scotch tape and went back to bed.

They romped and darted all over the bed (and our harmless legs)...We shut the door...

They scratched.... I sat in the hall to calm them down and crush their dreams of getting past me to scratch on the door with sleep deprived hubs on the other side... I suddenly became the opposing team's goalie. little did those 2 shit-heads know that I am the best cat goalie in the world.... even half asleep. I laid down in front of the door and side swiped any attempt at passing.... I even rolled on top of Zeke when he tried to climb the mountainous form under the OSU blanket. Needless to say I won and hubs carried me into bed at 5, when he woke up, giving me smooches and a 'good game' pat on the butt to put me to sleep.

It was a good game. The elephants made the first scores of the night... But I was the cat champ and got to sleep in after I gave one for the team....

I guess the skill of sleeping where ever, whenever, however comes in handy. Especially against 2 kiki's that haven't seen each other in almost 6 months.

Mother's Day Weekend

It was an interesting one.

I saw Ironman 2 with hubs and Big Sis's hubs. It was fun and I actually liked it quite a bit. I'm also one of those girls who enjoys action movies.... expecially if they're comic book related.

Jake had to work so I borrowed Sis's car while she went with Momma-Mia to Kentucky for a dance competition.

I miss having a car.
have I told you that mine is dead....

So dead that we're contemplating if it's actually worth it to fix the dang thing.

I've been driven around for the past year since it smoked it's way into the driveway a year ago.

Did I mention that Hub's stickshift scares the drap out of me?

Anywho..... So yes. I got SO much done while Jake was at work and I had a car.... My bank account is not very happy with me. Too bad it can't complain because everything was essential... and necessary... Except for the $3 movies I bought.... What it was sunset boulevard and That's Entertainment... Give me a break here..... And they were only $3.

Sunday Jake worked again and I spent the day with my family. It was pretty nice. We ran all around. Then Jake came and watched us eat (he doesn't like alfredo sauce) and we hung out for a little bit then shipped off to SIL's house to see the momma-in-law. It was a fun weekend.

I hope everyone's was equally enjoyable!

Why I Should be Allowed to Get A Pup


It's been an interesting week.

and I almost started whinning about it... eww.

Voting for Glee stuff is over. I'm not putting any money on anything, but I'm proud of myself that I actually did it. Now a lot of people know that I can sing that didn't before.

I've been having dreams about picking out puppies..... it's making me pretty emotional when I wake up and it's not real......

But then I think, 'Erin this isn't like a baby. Snap out of it'..... But I want a cute pup sooo bad.

Reasons why I should get a pup:
  • I've been waiting to get one for 4 years. everything has come up. at first 'Rents said no and I still lived with them. Then Jake didn't want to miss the 'puppy year' while he was away. Then we were engaged and couldn't afford one. Now we're stuck in an anti-pet apartment while smuggling in a feline.

Picture of said feline:
  • I'm a good pet mom. My cat always has food and is very happy. He tells me so every morning at 3:45. Plus I clean out his litter box regularly.

Picture of the happy boy:
I'm determined to have a pup before we start having kids. The dog will be training for Jake and I.

I would name our pup something cool like Fitzgerald (Fitz), Athena, Artemis,

Did I mention that I love my cat? Isn't he the cutest ever?!!!

p.s. he broke another glass. remember this incident before the wedding.... Well it seems like he loves the idea of open counters and falling glasses.

Thankful Thursdays

Why is it that when I was more involved and more often busy than not that I was sweet at posting... But now when my life is calming down and beginning to seem normal that I'm unable to post more than 2 days in a row? Cruious.

Today I'm thankful for:

  • Husbands that understand and can tell the difference between me yelling at him and when I'm pissed at someone else.

  • Cat food feeders. No more head-butts at 2:45am forcign me to get out of bed and scoop out food for my little fiend.

  • Golden Oreos.

  • Glee.

  • Getting mad deals for gym memberships. They mess up and we reep the rewards... Literally.

  • Scheduling the remainder of my classes so I can Graduate!!!!
