Wow I aM bOrEd!!

            While you were at work today I was at home SOOO incredibly bored!! It reminded me that only months ago you were at home, jobless, friendless and lonely while I went to school all day and studied all night. Its only been 4 hours and I am going crazy! I am complaining, Im grumpy, lazy, smelly and I cant think of any thing to do. I cannot even imagine what is was like for 3 months. So Thank you Bubba for sticking it out those first few months. Thank you for not letting me know how horrible it must have been. Thank you for not being grumpy, not complaining, keeping up with your hygiene and loving me through it. You were/are patient, strong, ambitious, transparent, beautiful, selfless, and perfect! Thanks for supporting me in Erie and school and I am so proud that you gave it a long enough chance for God to go to work in your life through Erie. I love you and hurry up and GET HOME!!

Snow or Sand

As Duke and I walked today- I fell in love with the way the snow captured our tracks. One was mine, one was his. simple. That's when I thought back to my favorite poem; Footprints in the Sand. 

Footprints in the Sand 

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. 
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

Hope you felt inspired.

Excuse me!

But is it really December??

That means Thanksgiving is done and we're moving towards Christmas. Which is a little sad because that means Arizona is in the past- and won't show it's face again until March- when one my best girlfriend's ties the knot- countdown pleasee!

Thanksgiving was wonderful. Seeing my Mom was like seeing an old best friend. So thankful that the distance has made us closer. It was also great because Duke's mom- my second mom- came to arizona to celebrate too- I love having the different dynamics under one roof!

When we returned home from the trip- I got the stomach flu. It's already hard transitioning from vacation to work as it is- but to get knocked down in the process is just not fair. 
Not mention that we had our first snow fall!! It was so beautiful until it wouldn't STOP snowing. I had to buy snow tires today: 500 dollars. That was not fun- I actually teared up a little bit when he said the total. That's the price I have to pay I guess for moving to the middle of no where. 

I'm looking forward to December and all it has to offer: sledding, our little Christmas tree, hot chocolate, a fireplace (which we don't have), Toledo, and Family.

It's going to be hard having another Christmas away from home. wish I could pack Nosh- mom- and lucy in a bag and ship them here-maybe one day!!
Speaking of my sis- she started a blog! You can read up on her crazy, fun, stylish, life here:

Last note: I called Duke crying today when my car got stuck in snow-and my windshield wipers were frozen- and I couldn't see the road.  It's just so fun driving in snow.
