Better today

I am feeling much better today. I admit I woke up this morning still feeling crummy and down, but I did some packing and then headed to my sister's to see Austin. And that made everything better!!!!

So I read yesterday that while you are in between jobs you should volunteer so that there's not any gaps in your resume. And since I don't have a job in New Orleans yet, I believe that that is just what I will do, besides, I love to volunteer and don't do it enough! So I'm also feeling better that I have somewhat of a plan.

Well tomorrow is the halfway point, Jake and I will be halfway to our moving date. So strange! Okay well I hope you are all staying as cool as possible and having a wonderful week so far! Here's a handsome man for you to look at!

I can't sleep

I can't sleep and I am feeling very low tonight. I keep thinking about moving and leaving my handsome new nephew and my great, great sister and all my wonderful friends! Not to mention the stress of being jobless and all that comes with that. Don't get me wrong I'm very excited for my new adventure, but I've always been emotional when it comes to change, whether it be good or bad. I'm sure I was the only person getting ready to head off to college that cried like baby while she was packing! I mean most people are excited and anxious and ready and I was sad to leave the smell of my house. Don't worry I adjusted just fine and I'm sure I will this time too, they always say that change is inevitable and so I want to embrace it but it can be hard for me, even when I WANT the change. Besides feeling low, I have so much to look forward too, having the opportunity to find a job in a field that I want, my best friend Jamie is getting married on the beach in like 11 days and all the yummy in my tummy food, not to mention amazing culture I will be around. BUT it's gonna be different. I've spent years getting to know the people in my life and I cherish them and I will miss them. Okay enough of me being a sap.

What about the horrible news of Jon and Kate plus 8? Very sad.

Bright note, my mom will be in town on Thursday and I can't wait to beg her to make me all kinds of good Thai food!!!!! YAY Mom....thanks in advance.

It is my honor to introduce you to......


My handsome and overly loved nephew was born Thursday, June 11, 2009 at 5:16 p.m. He weighed 6 lbs and 13 oz and was 20 in long! He's the most handsome child I have ever met (I'm sure I'm a little biased, but he really is). Here he is world, get ready for all the greatness he brings!

And although I'm so excited he is finally here, I'm also very sad that I have to leave him on Saturday when Jake and I make our move to New Orleans. Watch out frequent flier miles here I come!

Unfortunately I was not blessed with the gift of patience. Really that's unfortunate for everyone around me! :)

My sister went into the hospital this morning at 7:00 AM. And I am IMpatiently waiting for her (or just any) phone call at noon with an update on if the baby will be coming today and I can go ahead and make my way to the hospital! So please pray for my sister to have her baby today, a healthy, happy one and for me to find some patience because if he DOES decide to make his debut today, he may not be in any kind of hurry to do so.

Also I didn't really watch American Idol but I did watch the finale and I must say Kris Allen is a cutie and I heard his song on the radio this morning. NICE!

The baby is coming!!!!

My sister had a doctor's appointment on Monday and found out she was dilated to ONE!!! Wooohooo, the process has begun, well her doctor wanted her to come back on Wednesday (today). I received a call this morning from her with an update. Austin Steven Reid, hopefully will be here tomorrow!!! She is going to the hospital tomorrow to be induced, if by some rare chance nothing happens by 3, she and her doctor will re-evaluate the situation. However the doctor said he will come this week for sure, even if that means a C-section (which my sister would rather not have). Please pray for our family that he comes tomorrow happy and healthy! I can't wait to meet him! And I know she and her husband can't either. I'm so excited I don't know what to do with myself.

Come on people get it together!

Jon and Kate on Jon and Kate plus 8 that is! I used to love, love, love that show. Now with all the recent controversy and the not talking to each other at all I'm so very sad for them and their future. Lame huh? I'm sad for a family I don't even know.....yup, I sure am. Which leads me to this very random yet fitting point.

Growing up as a child I always thought that there would be ONE prince charming for me. Well I found him (so I thought) my junior year of high school. Oh silly me!!!! After my heart was broken and of course I never thought I would be able to live without him I came to my senses (well I actually went to a small town in Pennsylvania, which I like to call my senses). After this point I found that there were lots of nice boys in my college classes, working beside me at work and just wondering the streets of Fayetteville. Get to the point you say. The point is that there may only be ONE prince charming, or there may be SEVERAL potential prince charming's. I am a firm believer that there are a number of men, boys, guys (whatever you want to call them) that could be "the One". But it all depends on which you find at whatever point in your life that works with what you see in your future. Does that make any sense? For instance sometimes I think about what I think my ideal prince charming would be, well successful duh, financial secure, responsible, outgoing, easygoing, handsome, etc., etc. I think you get the point, we all have an idea. BUT I'm convinced you can't exactly get 100% of that..........at first. You grow to love someone, you love them when they make you angry and when you feel like not loving them, you love them for the quality they don't have AND for the ones they do. My point is yes I believe that fate is part of love as well as what you are willing to sacrifice to find it and timing.

So like we all know......................get off your butt Jon and Kate and work at making your relationship work, you put yourselves in this situation and you can definitely get yourselves out of it!

Hahah, hope you enjoyed the vent session about Jon and Kate as well as the random snippets of how I view relationships.

By the way, I found my prince charming, who is now officially a licensed CPA.
