Soul Searching...

Doing a bit of soul searching. Stay tuned.

Thursday, September 16, 2010


I just got off the phone with Ms. Kelly from the Aveda Institute! I am that much closer to making a decision about what to do next! The school sounds lovely, and what better way to spend a career, making women look and feel beautiful! :) At the moment, I am most interested in skin and makeup, but I also want to have the ability to cut/color/style hair!

But I can't commit just yet, in November, T finds out where or what we do next as far as moving stateside or staying in Germany! And as of right now, I am hoping to stay in Germany for a few more years. That gives me time to get my schooling and possibly back into the military without having to deal with a huge move in there.

T comes home tomorrow!!! :) He has been gone for too long, and this momma needs a breaK!
B knocked me in the chin with her head today, probably the most pain my chin has ever felt! Yes, tears were involved! :(
I am waiting for my hockey gear to get here so I can start playing hockey again!
Talked to the recruiter, need one more paper and my re-enlistment process begins (that is if I can chose my job)!
I miss my family and friends back home more than ever, these pase few weeks have been rough! I think I have possibly convinced a few to come visit soon! :) SO let's pray that they can!

That's it for now! hope everyone has a great weekend!

I was right.

I am crazy. After I wrote my last blog, I read some of my old posts back through June. I am probably the most random person ever. I have all these different posts and different things I want to do or am interested in. What! I make myself laugh a bit. But I believe that CRAZY is the new thing. If you're not constantly on the go and busy with life, what are you freaking doing! :)

That is all.

Could I be?

Crazy? Possibly. I seem to be feeling this way lately. As in, I have ALL of these ideas and dreams and plans, and accomplishing them ALL is what I want to do. But seriously, I have things from ALL over. So give you a small idea of what I am thinkin...I applied to UMUC (possibly a degree in biology). I applied to the Aveda Institute (cosmetology, hopefully specializing in make-up). I am signing up for the Dental Assistant program through the Red Cross (a 7 month program and a job as a dental hygenist). I just volunteered to be the assistant coach to the kiddo's soccer team as well. And I also applied at B's school to be a substitute teacher. Nope, that isn't all. But I will spare everyone my crazyness. But seriously, what am I thinking? I am not sure at all. However, I am SO excited to every single one of those things I listed. And I am determined to accomplish as much as possible! :) I need to. I have to. Period. 

Tomorrow is the Opening Day Ceremony for the Ramstein Sports! So excited, B gets to be in a parade and we get to spend the day watching soccer, playing on the bouncy castles, and if we get done early enough, heading to the Bad Durkhiem Wine Fest! I hear it's lovely, and can NOT wait to go! If that fails, their is the Stadtfest in Landstuhl this weekend as well, so we'll make it one of them for sure! T is still at school, can't wait for him to come back! This momma needs a breaK! We all know B's energy level, and it definitely doesn't slow down from the moment she hops out of bed (no later than 8am) to the moment I put her back in her bed (no earlier than 9pm). So you can understand how I feel, imagine a toddler hyped up on skittles, ALL day long. (and no, I don't actually give her skittles, she just has that much energy!) But I love it, and wouldn't trade if for the world! :) She makes me smile, earlier today she told me, "Mom, I'm so proud of you!" I think I had a tear or two!

Well that's it for now, hope everyone has a great weekend! Love you aLL!

I turned the big ol' 24 last weekend! I had an amazing weekend with some pretty amazing people! I want to thank all those who helped me celebrate, and wished my hubby could have been there as well!

Anyways, a short little update. I applied for school again. I applied at the University of Maryland and 2 beauty schools, Aveda Institue and Beauty Base London. I am super interested in make-up and want to try it out. We shall see! I am still waiting for my military papers to come so I can see if I can get back into the Army. I kind of need something right now. I am in a funk, a funk of nothingness. blah!

B started school last week, she absolutely loves it! And I love the break I get at home! She is getting bigger and smarter every day! Love her!

And i'm not in the mood to write anything else. Maybe later! night all!

Certain vs. Uncertain

I am absolutely certain that this week has been just amazing. My baby started school again on Tuesday and had an amazing time. She gets so excited everytime we talk about it. Her teachers are lovely and I am certain she will be the smartest little one in the class! She is certainly going to love soccer when it starts next week. Everyday this week has certainly been exciting and full of blessings ALL day long.

I am certain that I got the cutest early birthday suprise from T and B the otherday! Party favors and all! T made dinner and brownies, told B to sing me "Happy Birthday", and even YouTubed a video to learn how to make party hats! :) I couldn't be happier! Thanks babe!

I am uncertain how to deal with being a perfectionist. I read this book last year about being a pefectionist and never realized how much of a perfectionist I really am. My biggest uncertainty this week has been battling the way I feel leaving the house each day. It takes everything I have to walk out of the house knowing that my make-up or clothing are imperfect. Of course I don't go to the extreme and take hours to make perfection, but I do fret about it constantly when something ISN'T perfect. Anyways, this book gives me tips on how to deal with imperfections. It is one of the hardest things I have had to deal with in a long while. But I am certain that I will overcome this perfectionism with a bit of dedication and concentration on the important things. The new song, "Just the way you are" by Bruno Mars, has secretly built my confidence by a million! :) YouTube it!

Another possible uncertainty:  My birthday is on Saturday, the 4th. I am uncertain on whether or not I should be excited that I am going to be 24 years old...or young. As of late, I am dreading the fact that I am getting older. I get tired easily and I definitely don't have the same ideas of "fun" as those whom I am surrounded my on a daily basis. I do suppose being older isn't a bad thing. I have gained a great amount of maturity and responsibility. I am certain of this for sure.

And my last, most important uncertainty is dealing with the military and TDY. T left on Tuesday for TDY. I am so busy and tired that I barely noticed he was gone. :( He is gone for 3 weeks this time. A new challenge for B and I. Dealing with our daily lives with out our main man! I most certainly take all the things he does for granted when he is here. I have a pile of dishes in the kitchen, trash bags piled up, and an empty bed upstairs. I am certain B misses him and that we want him back ASAP!

BTW: It is 2:50 a.m. I miss my husband, can't sleep, and have too much on my mind to write it all down! Oh and I am listening to my boy Bruno! :) I hope everyone has a great Labor day weekend! I am about to spend my Birthday with some amazing ladies, B, and enjoy myself to the fullest this weekend! Miss you all!
