"I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter..."

Finally, some luck! I got a snow day! I don't think I could ever live someplace warm year round because seriously, nothing beats that call when you hear "It's a snow day, go back to sleep!"

However, this week was more unlucky then lucky, sadly. And it went family and friends-wide, which sucks even more! My unlucky incident was that I was involved in a hit and run!!! SERIOUSLY!!! Some jackass in a white van hit me and took off! And, as I was in a horrible section of Philadelphia at the time (34th and Grey's Ferry) there was no damn way I was getting out of the car!! But, thankfully, there was not too much damage done to my car. It will need a new light casing and a paint job, and there's a small crack in the body. I'm just pissed that A. someone actually had the nerve to drive away and B. now I am stuck with the bill for fixing my car since the jackass didn't stop and take some responsibility.

Although in that section of Philly, it was likely a crackhead…

Every day is a winding road...I get a little bit closer...

Well, first, I would like to congratulate Michelle on the purchase of her new Cricut, which, as only the truly sick crafters know, is am amazing piece of genius that will, truly, change her life! Yay Cricut!

So, thankfully, today is Wednesday, Hump Day as it's known, and I can get over to the other side of the mountain that is this week. I'm feeling a little more like a normal person today, even though so far, there's been two episodes of crappiness this week and we all know bad things come in threes. So I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop! Still, I feel better today.

Someone told me that I take things too much to heart. I know that that's true, I"ve always been the overly-sensitive one- for God's sake, my parents had to ban me from watching the news when I was yonger because I would get so upset! And there's a part of me that kind of luxuriates in melodrama- a good cry is the best luxury ever sometimes, and if you can cry over movies, books, …

Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way...give us faith so we'll be safe

Please, please, keep these people close to your heart and pray for them in whatever means you use to speak to God,

Greg- Please pray for Greg today while he undergoes a brain biopsy. Keep him safe from harm and allow the doctors to safely perform this surgery and lead them to the answers as to why he is sick. Pray for Shelly, who loves him so much and has been so strong, give her a little more strength to get through the day, the week, and whatever else is to come. Keep their girls, Sarah, Riley, and Emilia in your heart.

Reggie- My friend Reggie, who I first met when I was 12, lost his beautiful daughter Kaela DeJesus on Feb. 8th. She was the same age I was when I met Reggie. I can not even begin to comprehend this loss, and will never understand how something like this could happen. Any idiot could see how much Reg loves his kids- it's like he's almost in wonder of how he could have created them (although anyone who's been on the recieving end of one of Reg's encourag…

...and even though I know the river is wide, I walk down every evening and stand on the shore..

Billy Joel was SOOOO right! The river is wide!

But, here I am on the shore, just like he said. Weird.

Thankfully, I promise not to drown myself in it! It's been a crazy week of both good and bad. I don't feel like I'm drowning in the river so much as kayaking upstream. That said, I know some of the most important people in my life feel that way, too, so I should count my own personal blessings.

Starting with the good news, Pete and I booked our honeymoon! I am so excited! We will be going to Punta Cana, and not only will it be our honeymoon, it will be our first real trip anywhere! In fact, it will be the first time we've spent more then two uninterrupted days together!

We also picked our ketubah (wedding contract) and soon we will get to do our cake tasting- the thing that tipped the scales in favor of a wedding as far as I am concerned! Mmmmm...cake...

Not that my heifer ass needs any cake. I have been to the gym every day this week so far, but I keep falling off the w…

"I got something to say, you know, but nothing comes..."

So, how can it only be Monday and it's already the longest week ever?

Oh, well, at least I have my sweet potato victory to cheer me up! I'll tell you, watching the girls eat those sandwiches, it was hard not to just crack up in their face and go "Yooooooooooooooou're eating something heeeeeeeeealthy! SUCK ON THAT!!!!!" I can't tell if that attitude means I've been a nanny for too long, or not long enough.

Actually, I know the answer to that. I've been a nanny for too long. This was supposed to be an interem job while I decided to make a decision about what I wanted to do after I left Cooper. But, I got A. emotionally involved and B. lazy from having a mostly fun job that pays very well. After Pete and I got engaged, it seemed like staying at that job was the right thing to do- I was living at home again, so my bills were smaller and my salary was alot bigger. I've been able to save up and pay for alot of the wedding and save for our own place.

But, …

Victory is mine! (A post also seen at The Adventures of Ellie and Anna!)
