I know this makes me the world’s biggest baby, but Kyle is on a business trip for the next few days, and I already miss him like crazy. Of course it’s no surprise that what I miss most are the little things…having someone to unwind with, having someone to ramble about my day with, having someone to make or pick up dinner for me when I’m too tired, the fact that Kyle usually takes Dex on his night time walk…so at the end of this Kyle-less day, I’m more tired than usual…and of course, there is still no Kyle to cuddle with, so I guess Tumblr will have to do :P
Tomorrow my bess fran is going to be kind enough to check out one of the places Kyle and I contacted about renting. It’s in Normal Heights & oddly meets all of our requirements/hopes/price range…so as long as there are no awful surprises tomorrow, and the place is still available…Kyle and I will hopefully be moving out soon!
I cannot express how excited I will be to have my own little home again :3
I miss all of our silly little things, and as much as I love my family, I miss having our own little place to call our own!
My nephew is due any minute of any hour of any day now, and I am so excited to meet the newest little man to join our growing family! Hopefully we can plan our visit to see our new little bub around the same time we go up to grab our things out of storage :)
I have my two big tests to study for (well, I’m not really studying for the CBEST, considering I would hope I should be able to pass it, haha) so I guess it’s nice having a little bit of time away from Kyle to really focus…lol.
Here’s to the Summer of 2013, you are quickly approaching, and I’m getting more and more excited! :D
Nice that my boss used to be a librarian, we now have a bookshelf & books at work #itsthelittlethings #books #reading #work #lifeasabarista
Enjoyed our morning walk :) #cactus #nature #walk #sandiego
Kyle’s Mommy took us out to dinner at Native Foods & of course we got one of each of the desserts #thatshowweroll #foodies #food #vegan #nom
Made an awesome salad for dinner :) yes, awesome enough to photograph ;) #salad #dinner #food #veggies #veg
After 24 years of life, I find myself to be thankful, happy, and thoroughly amazed. I know this year will bring new challenges and new adventures, and I am so grateful to be spending it surrounded by the loving people I call friends and family. I have big plans for this year, and I hope to accomplish some big goals (getting our own place, graduating, etc).
I can tell this is going to be a good year, I can feel it in my bones.
I love this beautiful lady who brought me into the world 24 yrs ago!
Breakfast brunch made for me by my mommy :)
Good grief, I haven’t written anything on here in a while!
Life is moving too fast (as usual) these days, that I barely have had any extra time to spend! But, since I have a bit of time, I thought I’d post a little something about my life recently…
Things with Linda & Chris are much better (mostly with Linda, but that’s what’s really important, right?) which is definitely a relief…considering it felt like things were never going to get better. But they did, and they are. We met little Rye in person for the first time Easter weekend, and boy do I miss that little ball of chubs! He’s quit big, over 20lbs & only 6 months old! :D And of course, he’s adorable :D
Omied and Rachael are expecting their baby any day now, really! Which means I’ll be an Auntie for the 2nd time within a year! Yay! :D They still haven’t quite decided on a name yet…and/or are just keeping it from the rest of us…which is understandable, lol. But anywho, just so excited to meet the other little man!
Sahar is graduating and turning 18 in about a month, which is crazy! Idk when she got to be so old!
Which reminds me, I am turning 24 in about a week! Ack! I had been feeling a little overwhelmed, but I’m coming around to being happy for my birthday, lol. My best friend will be visiting from Philly, so I am SO excited to see her, and have her here for my birthday! Honestly, I don’t think we’ve celebrated a birthday together since senior year of high school! & she’s bringing her little dove, MJ, with her too! I am very much looking forward to more babies to snuggle with, as I am having withdrawals from my nephew who lives too far away :(
Work is going well, it’s a bit slow at the coffeeshop still, which is only annoying because it means that while we’re working, we often don’t have a lot to do (boredom is so…boring) & they cut our hours until we actually need to be there more often :/ This puts a slight damper on K & I’s plans to move out…but we’re still trying to do so ASAP! I might have mentioned on here that we were considering buying a house…but we decided to postpone those plans by a year, and spend the next year saving up to do so! However, finding a suitable rental has been quite difficult…we just want a 1bd place that has a full kitchen, washer/dryer in unit & allows dogs… preferably with a yard & either in La Mesa (close to my job), or in Pacific Beach (close to Kyle’s job)…and also preferably under $900. I know the right place is out there, we just haven’t found it yet. I got Kyle to compromise a little bit on the washer/dryer front…and as long as the complex has coin-less (aka free) laundry facilities, he’s willing to consider it, lol.
School is moving along quite quickly, I’m about to finish my last Foundations of Teaching classes, so this upcoming term I am taking my big FoT test which covers all the FoT classes I’ve taken (Classroom Management, Diversity & Inclusion, Schools & Society, Testing & Assessments) and is incredibly important…I am also signing up to take the CBEST & get my California Background Clearance done & preparing my professional portfolio so that I can start doing my in-class observations!
Life has been keeping us quite busy! But it sure feels nice to be moving forward towards some big goals :)
Hanging out on the stairs for my break…my hair is down, I made myself a raspberry iced tea & I have my book #lifeisgood #break #work
