I have promised myself I will try to post often. I am going to try once a week and see how it goes since we all know I shouldn't push myself. haha
I mean really, the last post on this was literally a YEAR ago! So I'm going easy on myself and not making any outrageous goals :) Enjoy the new cuteness!!

First, I left work early because there was nothing to do, and normally I would be ecstatic to leave, but rent is due today... So I was pretty unhappy about leaving with only $12 dollars in my pocket after 2 1/2 hours.
Second, I went to get gas and locked myself out of my car with the keys and my PHONE staring at me from the driver's seat. Luckily, Drew Lanham was there and let me use his cell phone to call my dad to go to Hobby Lobby to get the keys from Bryce and bring them to me..... 45 minutes later!!! It was Fuh-REEZING outside and I was ridiculously too prideful to accept Drew's gracious offer of letting me have his coat. So, there i stood frozen, receiving dirty looks from people who wanted my gas pump... stupid old ladies.
THIRD! (And this is the cause of the RIDICULOUS anger i have pent up in me....) Our apartment complex is trying to tell me we still owe them rent from November, WHICH WE DONT, and it led to 3 trips to and from the bank and the office, and angry phone calls between our bank and the office, and me turning red in the office at the bank because i wanted to shove the phone down the apartment ladies throat. ( the bank guy was FABULOUS) Turns out the bank our complex uses LOST our check and told the complex that it was because of insufficient funds (which it wasnt) so they returned it and now they want us to pay and extra $135. I wont do it I tell you!!! I now have to wait till they contact their bank and contact me back.. Ad now they wont take personal checks from us so I have to go out of my way every month to get a money order... I wanna strangle someone!
So, my day ended up being less than relaxing yesterday and to top it all off, I'm still coming to terms with the fact that my life is about to change drastically. Bryce is joining the Army and I'm very proud of him and happy for him, but I'm still anxious about all the things we're about to experience.

Bryce was going to school at UAH but some monthly finances that we were supposed to receive never came..... so he is having to drop his classes THIS semester and ONLY this semester to get some work to help me pay the billsies. :) I really honestly don't mind being the working wife while my hubby focuses on his education, but sometimes it's hard to pay ALL the bills on a waitress's salary.
We are now in the stage of every one thinking they have a say in our lives and telling us that quiting school right now is soo crazy, when if they would actually listen in the first place they would know that it's JUST for this one semester. Bryce will be picking back up in January. He had a meeting with some high and mighty guy at UAH and they are in the process of getting this semester erased basically so that it doesn't affect his GPA and starting "repeat" classes next semester.
On an awesome note, Brycie got a JOB!! He started today at Hobby Lobby and I'm so proud of him for finally taking charge of his life. He's been kind of like a zombie for the past 5 moths trying to please everyone but himself which basically just made him depressed. It was really hard as his wife to watch him be so unhappy and know that there was nothing I could do about it. He had to realize that pleasing other people is not always the best choice for you. He's been looking at all of his options and I think he has finally realized that he actually has control of his life. Not sure what his "career choice" is going to be, but I have faith that my husband will always go to the Lord when big decisions need to be made and that's all I need.
Our marriage has gotten a lot stronger through this trial of being lost, and I'm so extremely grateful for it. We actually had a sleepover in our living room the other night. tehe... We are loving all the time we've gotten to spend together and are trying to get back in our routine of daily scripture study and prayers. My Heavenly Father definitely loves me and my family and I'm grateful for the patience he has with me. :)
So, for now, we are living the life!!
