a few days, weeks, and monthsSo in a few days I'll be going on my first vacation alone. I'll be going to a women's retreat my church is hosting. There I will be with some awesome women enjoying the sights of Santa Cruz, zip-lining, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors. When I get back I will be hunkering down and paying off debts within the next three weeks... After that I'll be saving about $800 for RTX to cover gas, food, and some swag and then I'll be saving for..... a house (duh duh duh duuuuuuuuuuuuh). I'm very excited for the months to come and very excited to see where everything will lead me.
Work is running smooth thanks to my recent awesome super hire, taking a lot of stress of my shoulders. I'm looking forward to the future :D oh.... and my sponsorship is gone :(
the sleepsYesterday I woke up and was so sure it was my day off and was dissapointed when it wasn't. Today I woke up, fell back asleep and in my dream I thought it was 5:20 but it was really 6:48 and I had to call that I was going to be late. I woke up when my third alarm went off and it was 5:30 and I instantly wanted to go back to sleep Previously, both mornings, I had woken up at 4 like I was ready to take on the world, then went back to sleep... I'm an old lady and need to start going back to bed at 8 or 8:30 so I don't feel this messed up. It hurts to be awake right now.
2013I haven't updated since my birthday so I thought it was time to do another one. There isn't anything big going on in my life. I've been spending my time working, watching Kayde, and working out when I can. Have two upcoming trips for 2013!!! I signed up for a women's retreat in April and I'm super excited about it. I'll be ziplining for a day and I'm so excited to do it.. RTX is in July and guess who's going?!!! The Wardog clan... that's right biznatches... We're going and if slaktare doesn't roomie up That's right, I'm calling you out it'll be just the fam.. Hopefully I didn't ruin any big journal is the rhino... If I did That's pretty much it. I'm sick again but I'm hopefully getting over it if Kaydence stops coughing in my mouth.. We made special breakfast today (chocolate protein pancakes, eggs, and bacon), cleaned, she napped (just as I fell asleep she woke up ) worked out, and now we're watching Tangled. I'm hoping the music keeps her entertained.. So far, no luck, she put puffs all over the floor I just vaccumed. But now it's loves time.. Baby snuggles are the best... That's all for now..
birthdayYesterday was my birthday... Just saying. Im 26 now, learned a few more lessons and this year I'll learn a few more. It was an awesome birthday, very relaxed, and we all gorged ourselves with sushi for over an hour and it was wonderful. We are slowly saving the animas one holiday at a time.. A whole family plus some, of red pandas have been sponsored for a year.. How awesome is that?!! Now onto saving the rhinos
within a yearSo I'll keep this short and sweet for the most part... I was just going through my past e-mails and got to one from Valentines Day and saw the e-mail card wardog sent me of Grimlock.. To think of how much that has changed since then to now is increadible. Within the beginning of the year to now I've turned 25, soon I'll be 30 and who knows where I'll be by then... I've become a manager, running my own area, being the big boss lady in charge, the one people are supposed to look up to. I've become a God momma to a beautiful and spoiled little baby who is now almost to the point of walking. Also, decided I want more in life so I'm furthering my education. I think I want to get into physical therapy.. People are always getting themselves hurt, so there's the line of work out there.. and it wouldn't be retail. Went and met someone online (how else would I have) and obtained myself a boyfriend (it's safe to call him that now, I think) and he's turning out to be a really cool, decent guy and I like him a lot. Gone out of town without the rest of the family, bought my truck (and will have it paid off mid-November)... There's been a lot that has gone on. Ive gotten over some of my timidness, talking to people, starting conversations.. even danced in front of people.. Crazy, I know, but it's true. I'm growing up and excited for whatevers going to happen... Just felt the need for an update... Back to the homework...
things a changinSo this is going to be short and sweet because I'm getting ready to leave for school, but things are changing. I'm getting busier, between school, work, running (because even though the 5K is over, I'm not going to stop!!) bestest friends, and my newest addition Taylor (who Wardog refers to as 'Sir') I'm a constantly moving bear. It's refreshing for me to constantly be on the move, because before I became a homebody, this is how life was. I was always out doing things, not necessarily experiencing them, but I was outside a lot, having fun, and enjoying life, and I think for a while I was missing that. I jumped right back in at full speed and I just keep going (with the exception pause for a nap). I'm relieved to know that I'm still that happy go lucky person that can go go go and have fun and I'm not a boring dull little creature. I've so much to experience and look forward to one day doing it.
That is all though, like I said.. I have school :p <3 Isthebear
actual new stuffSo, I figured while my phone is syncing I would fill you in on what's new, because yes! Stuff is finally new!
I started school the past few weeks and it's been fun getting back into the groove of doing things. Homework is getting done in a timely manner, so far I've completed all my work, and I'm constantly just trying to get ahead of the game. In my swimming class I've relatively mastered the art of freestyle and we've begun back stroke in which I found out my left hand is my "strong haaaaaand" and is gimpy. I got a new lady at work and she's working out pretty good. She's a hard worker and pretty efficient and I'm glad to have her around... Also, taken up running, and it's somewhat fun. The 5k Heather and I have been training for (for Courage to be You, a home that helps rehabilitate girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking) is in a week and so far I can run a total of 26 minutes in a row.. It's a slow run, but a run nonetheless and for someone who couldn't last a few minutes before, 26 minutes is awesome.
Lastly, because guess what?! There's more news... There's someone kind of new in my life. I'd been talking to someone online for a couple of months (and Air Force pilot) and we met, face to face a few weeks ago. The babe and I went on a picnic with said pilot and had a great time, The Babe found him worthy to see again and so he met Mike (Wardog) and our friend Sgt. Harris. After dinner and grilling from those two we went bowling and had fun, then went to six flag to get our season pass tickets and he and I are going on Sunday for a fun filled day. Only God knows how this all will turn out, but he's met Wardog and is still alive... Now on for round two when he meets the all knowing Cyborg 'O'. Who knows Osiris, you may have to make a special trip out here yet... if not soon, then after 4 months when he's back in the states.. You might like him, too.
So that's it, but I told you I had news :p... woop woop!! <3 Isthebear
just new stuffNothing going on is all that interesting. I started school again, got into swimming (so that I remain active between school and work), kinesiology, and biology. Work is good, got an assistant, so things will (hopefully) be less stressful. We'll see how that pans out. Taking up jogging due to a 5k Heather (The Babe) and I are going to do. I'm not a runner, so it's not going to be the easiest, but I looked up a plan to have my body ready by then and it will be :). Any thing else new is trivial and most of you don't care (if you even care about ^ :p) and the rest I want to type out, just to type it so it gets off of my chest, but it has nothing to do with anyone, so I'll just continue to pray. God has his plan out for all of us, whether or not we like it. If I'm alone, it's for a reason, someday it might change. Same with the things that come along with it. Fang is doing good, trying to escape daily, but luckily with no success, the only time out of his home is on me or on my bed having crawl time. No more walls for him... stinking lizard. I guess that's it. You guys can message me or comment or what not.. I get lonely :p
