So I posted a while back this idea that I got from Ashley. I feel like if you take the time to read my blog, we are friends a least a little bit. And if you're my friend, I am 100% we would be going to a Starbucks or a small coffee shop to catch up. So here is an update on things we can talk about over lattes, hot chocolate, cappuccino, tea, whatever your little heart desires. (I mean I am personally drinking some coffee at home so if you want to join me, we can literally be having hot drinks together! Its a lot cheaper than us actually meeting up cause I ain't got time to pay for your plane ticket...)
I mean first off I am so excited to see you. Since I am a hugger, I would automatically squeeze the breath out of you with my ability to give strong hugs. I would naturally ask how you are and whats going on with you. I will try to listen without interrupting because that's a terrible habit I have that I am trying to get better at...
Then naturally you would ask how my life was and I would have to tell you.
First I will tell you right now I am the most stressed out than I have been in a long time. It seems that nothing is going my way since 2015 has started. And I will tell you that I believe I must have broken a mirror somewhere along the way. Actually I think its the Deployment myth "When hes gone something/ everything is gonna break." I hate to say I have already fallen victim to this. My car that I have had for about 4 years now, my precious "Rashondala," has been the one to suffer from Aaron leaving. She needs a new motor and unfortunately that cost more than she does.
So then I will tell you that I have to look for another car. Which isn't easy with a budget as low as mine. And since I am paying for it all myself and cant really afford monthly bills like that...I mean can you feel the stress radiating off me?
Another thing, Aaron has gone. For a deployment. I might get to see him one more time the first weekend in February but other than that its "Adios" for a year. Which is really sad. I will tell you that I haven't really cried yet because it hasn't hit me too much...But I know that is inevitable and will be coming sooner or later. But I would tell you that I am also happy for him because he will be getting so many certifications and learning so much about his job in the Army while there. He is very excited so I will be excited for him too. Also I am kinda excited to make him care packages...
On another note, I will tell you to add me on twitter! I am trying to get back into the swing of things! So its @elizabeth_blogs! I hope to hear from you soon!
I will then tell you that for personal reasons I am taking a semester off school. I thought long and hard about this one and then I thought long and hard about telling anyone. It was a hard decision but it was necessary for reasons I don't really want to talk about on the Internet. (If YOU wanna buy your plane ticket to have coffee with me for real, we can talk all about it!!! :) )
I will tell you that at our annual staff meeting two nights ago, I received the award of "best classroom" award. I was extremely proud. I was crying when they took my picture. Whooops. (We all know I am constantly an emotional wreck. )
After I tell you all that I would probably mention that I am really happy to see you. I will probably ask you why its been so long since we have done this. Then I will tell you that next time I will let you talk a little more and stop being so talkative!
Until next time my little southerners!
(If you guys would be interested in making this a link up so you can join in next time please let me know! We can make this a monthly thing!!! :) I would love to read yours though so let me know if you decide to do this so I can read it!!! )
