This past week I had a different work schedules because one of the girls had to nanny for a family and had to take the kids to school and couldn't open. I had to work 3 mornings at 5 am instead of 1, I also didn't work my late night. I am only telling you this because you will need this info for my story ;) I work at a gym, so the same people workout at the same times, everyday. I normally am only here on Thursday mornings, but when I was here on Tuesday and Wednesday, I had at least 5 people tell me "umm I am confused, is it Thursday already?" Then, I had my manger tell me that she had 3 people ask where I was on Tuesday when I wasn't at work until 8. I know the people are trying to be friendly, and mean no harm, but it also makes me think that complete strangers know my schedule. What if they did want to hurt me or something else along those lines. I know I live in a small town, but things can happen anywhere, to anyone. It is just a reminder for me to be aware of my surroundings. Are you aware of what's going on around you?!

Have a good one,

Catching Up.

Well, what's new I haven't posted for a few weeks so here I am to do a recap. Our life never slows down, but that is okay, I have come to terms with it, and at least we are making memories!..some good and some bad. Pete had bought a new suit a few weeks ago for his friends funeral and it already has a hole in the pocket so we decided to take it back since we paid over $200 for it. On our way to the mall he goes, "well I have gotten more use out of that suit in a month than I have ever gotten out of my old one; two funerals, two weddings, and a work event." Wow, we are busy people! Since I have blogged last, one of my uncles passed away. He was fighting with stage 4 throat and mouth cancer, and was only 56 years old. It is sad to see that happen, but we know he is in a better place and will not be in horrible pain, ever again.

 May is always an exciting month with schools getting out and people graduating. It has been 4 years since my friends and I have started college, therefore, a bunch of them graduated this weekend. I think that reality has really set in that we are adults now. I know I graduated in December, but it didn't feel real I guess because I still hung out with all my friends who are still going to class and living that "college life". Plus, I only work 2 days a week because my super awesome husband works hard for the monnnayyy. ;) But after yesterday, the majority of my close friends are finished. Two will be moving to New York, one next month and the other in September. The farthest that any of my close friends went for college was Mizzou, which is only 3 and a half hours away from me. So New York is a big step. I told my friend Lauren that this is summer when we take our "girls trip" it is going to be so different, so grown up. We are all going to be coming from all different places, taking different flights at different times. We all won't be flying together from the same airport! YIKES, adulthood! Honestly, I love it though. Maybe, selfishly, it is because I am they one that is married, or even in a relationship for that matter with a husband that works hard and is good at what he does, so I am lucky enough to only work part-time. I am not stressed about money, or my future or HAVING to have a job to survive. I thank God for this everyday. I am so blessed. No matter how bad "things" get or hard I think I have it, I just have to remember how blessed I am to have an awesome husband that loves me no matter what, an equally as awesome family, a roof over my head(even if that changes more often than normal..more to come), a job, food to eat, etc. I could go on and on about all the ways I am blessed, and that is what keeps me going, day in and day out.
 Have a great Sunday! Enjoy something you love!
