I’m turning 29! What!?!

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! I’m not sure what happened there. I was at work the other day discussing my/our birthday (me, one of my techs, and one of our volunteers all have a June 29th birthday… best day ever to be born!)… and very nonchalantly I mentioned something along the lines of “I can’t believe I’m turning 28!” Eeeek! I thought it would at least be a little bit longer until I genuinely started forgetting my own age. But apparently it’s happening… now! I got home that day and mentioned something about it to Danny. He then proceeded to break the news to me, although not all that gently. I am, in fact, turning 29. It’s awesome nonetheless. I love my b-day no matter what number is associated with it (ask me about that in 11 years… that opinion may change…). But I can’t even begin to say how excited I am about 29. It’s going to be a big year. Moving back to California… starting a new job… moving into a home with …

Life Updates

So as you may or may not know, I was supposed to be on a ship right now traveling around Central America on my humanitarian deployment… but that got officially cancelled almost a month ago. And what have I done since then? I really couldn’t tell you! Time has been flying by like crazy! Work has been insane and I constantly feel like I am just trying to keep my head above water. One thing I know is that I finally retired my little ’96 Nissan for a new-to-me ’13 Ford Edge, and I am loving it! I loved my little pink car, but it was time to move on. And although I am now getting half the MPG I was before (filled up my new car for the first time this week and it was painful watching the $$ go up and up…), but it’s alright. It’s worth it for the incredible jump in safety and comfort I now have. Anyway, what else is new?! Danny and I decided to adopt Finn, our 7th …

Thankfuls continued… blues, friends, patients with patience, bread, and boyfriend

As always… a lot to catch up on… 5 November – I am thankful for my blues… and the fact that I only wear them once a week. 6 November – I am thankful for my friends… near and far… new and old. They are the glue in my ever-changing life. They keep me sane even if I haven’t talked to them for a while. Just knowing they are there for me can get me though anything. 7 November – I am thankful for the patients at work who genuinely say “Oh, that’s all!?” when I tell them they are going to have a 30-minute wait time for their prescription (pretty standard)… also the ones who call their refills in early and those who smile when they come to the pick-up window… it is you wonderful, patient and understanding people that (who?) make my days brighter :) – oh, grammar, sometimes you baffle me 8 November – I am thankful for the Great Harvest Bread Company and their amazing pumpkin chocolate chip muffins… so fresh and warm at 0630… and their free slices …
