Happy Leap Day!

Today might turn out to be a pretty big day for me and Cletus :-) **Crosses fingers**

Next year, today won't happen! Take advantage of the "extra" time, be with people you love. :-)

A Good Day

So this morning, I got up like I normally do. It was just another day. I cleaned the 2" of snow off of my car, and I went and did my workout. When I started to head back to my apartment, my phone beeped at me letting me know that I had a text message. It was Cletus wishing me a happy birthday. "Oh yeah!" I thought..."today is my birthday!" Yeah, I know...pretty dumb of me to 'forget' that it's my birthday right? made me feel really good that he thought of me first thing in the morning (love you!!!). :-) When I got to work, I got an email from my mom, two from co-workers, and 3 phone calls (so far)!!! It made me feel good :-)

So yeah, happy birthday to me!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

So, today started out pretty crappy. I didn't want to get out of bed, some stupid flatbed tow truck driver parked about 4" away from the passenger side of my car so now there's mud all over the back of my coat because I had to shimmy between the truck and my car to scrape off my windows. I've been stressing out at work for the last couple of weeks with pretty much no end in sight yet, and all I could think about today was the fact that I REALLY just wanted to crawl back into bed with a good book....

Luckily, Cletus helped me cheer up. I don't think he even realizes it though. I love you honey, happy Valentine's Day. :-)

And to all of you that actually read this, happy Valentine's Day. Hope you had a good day!

Feeling "Wanted"

So, up until about...I don't know...11 months ago, I had almost completely forgotten what it was like to feel wanted. I was in a pointless relationship for 2 years and had pretty much decided that I really didn't have any friends. Well, then I met Cletus :-) I also started going to RCIA classes in which I met a bunch of really nice people!! I finally have a very meaningful relationship with a fantastic, wonderful, amazing man, and I have friends again!!! Yay!!!

Ash Wednesday

So today is my first Ash Wednesday. I know, I know...Ash Wednesday has always been around but this year is my first year actually "participating" in it. Lent is starting, and that will be a challenge for me, but a journey at the same time. For the next 40 days, I am giving up something that I THROROUGHLY enjoy eating!!! It's all for a good reason though. Then, come Holy Saturday...I'm gonna be baptized!
