On another 'travel' note...3 months and 14 days til I go to IRELAND!!! Yay!

Another Poem

I wrote this one about 6 years ago I think....hope you like :-)

With You

Baby I'm just overwhelmed, there's just so much to do

I feel like I don't have time to be alone with you
There's always other people, other things we need to do
I need to find some EXTRA time, to be alone with you
I think I'll always wonder, how we've ended up so well
I LOVE YOU very deeply, and you love me, I can tell
You fill my heart with happiness, I'm so complete with you
I might could spend my life alone,
Just all alone


"Time is the fire in which we burn."

Lost and Found

The last few months for me have been at the very least, a whirlwind. I met my wonderful boyfriend, and have enjoyed every minute I’ve shared with him, my mom and I decided we are going to Ireland in October, and numerous other things that have happened to make it just one big…well…mess I guess. Most of the things that have happened in the last couple of weeks will be left unsaid, but note the fact that I felt lost within my own life. I was scared, excited, bummed out, happy, grateful, thankful, and reluctant all at the same time. The only person really holding me together was Cletus. If it weren’t for him, I don’t know where I would be right now. I’ve started going to church again, and that’s where the ‘Found’ comes into play. I hadn’t been to church, except for a couple of times with Zach in high school, for probably at least 10 years. It was somewhat unnerving being in a church for something other than a family members or friends wedding, but I’ve gotten comfortable with it. I’ve also realized that there were 2 things missing in my life, and I’ve found them both…Last night, I did something I haven’t done in a long time…

Support Pimpin

I was on my way to the bank yesterday when I saw something that totally rubbed me the wrong way. I'm all about supporting our troops in Iraq, and everywhere else they are. I am very thankful that there are people in this country willing to die so I and my family can be happy. I even have a few of those ribbon magnets. One is green camouflauge colored, and I have a couple of yellow ones that have a SeaBee in the middle, but they all say "Support Our Troops". My sister was in the Navy, and her husband still is. I don't have them on my car because one got stolen. Now, here's where my gripe comes in...those magnets (if I'm not mistaken) were created for the troops originally. So when I saw this one on the car in front of me yesterday, I wanted to get out of my car and give the driver an earful. "Support Pimpin" on a ribbon magnet???? Come on. There are people dying so this dummy can be a smart ass...I guess I just don't see the humor. Oh well, that's my gripe.
