Someday's I just feel so blessed.

I'm so thankful for all that I have. I know my mom is watching over me. I sure do love and miss her!
*Man, Friday is the slowest work day of my life! Seriously, I still have 3 hours and 41 minutes left. ughh. I guess I'm lucky to have a job at a time like this.
*Jerry and I went tubing down the river yesterday. It was so cold! And scaryyyy! I cut my foot on a rock. But it was fun.
*Michael Jackson died, I can't believe it. He was born in 1958, same year as my mom. Died only 7 months after my mom. I liked him, molester or not, he was an amazing entertainer.
*Jerry's grandparents are in town. Kobie has a baseball game tonight. We'll be there.
*I turned in a 1,973 word paper today on homosexual equality.
*I have no desire to do the homework in my Sociology class.
*Looks like rain.
*Ferrah Fawcett died yesterday too.
*Jerry and I went on a bike ride/ walk late last night. :)
*I get paid soon. :)
*Only a month left of online classes.
*Two months till I head back to Weber.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you will never be alone. People, even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Never throw out anyone. [Audrey Hepburn]
**Have a good weekend! Be happy, feel blessed and show love! :)

My Boy Stanley!

This is Stanley, my cat, who acts much more like a person is one of my best friends. He's so cute! He's fluffy with bald spots from his recent hair cut! :) He talks to me, begs me for food and sits on the toilet watching me get ready every morning. I truely love him! I especially like to sleep with him at night. He puts his head on a pillow or sometimes even on my head. We got him a cute orange collar with rhinestones a few weeks ago and he looks adorable. He makes me so happy. He gets really cuddly when I cry and it cheers me. He likes to play and bite, and he kicks his back feet like Thumper on Bambi. I just want everyone to know I love Stanley!!

The bug!

My grandpa bought a 1963 bug when the price of gas went up to something around 40 cents. In 1996 when my grandpa died, my mom inherited it, and it has been sitting in our garage since. A few years after he died my parents got it panted a pretty purple color with intentions of fixing it up. But it sat in the garage for years. After my mom passed away my dad started working on the Bug to keep himself busy. He wanted to get it finished by June 17th, my mom's birthday. Well, it's done! And only a few days overdue. My dad, Jerry and his brothers worked on putting the windows in yesterday. They finally got them in, but cracked the front windshield (we're gonna fix it asap.) After we got it all together, my dad backed it out of the garage and they washed and waxed it. It looks so good, but so so tiny. I can't believe how little it is. Now we are just waiting for new wheels and a new windshield.

Lucky to be in love with my [[best friend]]

I would have to say I am a pretty lucky girl. I mean I have the average life of any average person and I've had my ups and my many many downs; but overall, I am lucky. I have some of the best friends, a mom that taught me everything, a dad who spoils me unconditionally and the most incredible boyfriend.
Let me tell you about this boy. I cry, he comforts me. I bite him, he deals with it. I yell, scream and insult him and he still tells me he loves me. I tell him I miss my mom for the 1,000 time and he still knows the right thing to say. I make a mess of his car, he cleans it. I drive his car and it starts on fire, he puts the fire out and fixes the car. I'm grumpy, he cheers me up. I say ridiculous things, he believes me. I want to go to a movie, he takes me. I ask him to tuck me into my bed, he waits until I fall asleep. What I am trying to say is, he is my everything. I don't know where I would be without him. I know I am going to spend the rest of my life with him.
My dad tells me everyday how much he loves Jerry. And I love him too, with all my heart. He is the only person I let myself cry in front of, and I know he must get tired of it. I could cry for hours on his shoulder. He was there for me when my mom died. And knowing that my mom loved him makes me never want to lose him. I can't lose him, he is the only good thing I have left in my life; or at times that is how I feel. I am so blessed to have this perfect, sweet, cute boy in my life.

Happy Birthday Momma!

Today would have been and I guess still is my mom's 51st birthday! The first birthday without her. :( I could tell it was especially hard on my dad as I could hear him crying for his bedroom this morning. I miss her so much and I still find it hard to believe that she isn't still alive. I talk to her and visit her grave everyday. I know she is there. But I don't really accept it yet. I still get mad and very sad that she is gone. It isn't fair that she only got spend 50 years on earth. It isn't fair that I only got to spend 19 1/2 years with her. Not fair at all! Everyday I think about her. I think about what it must of been like the day she died. Did she know she was dying? Was she okay with it? Are people sad in Heaven? Does she watch over my dad, Jessica and I and see us crying? I hope she isn't sad in Heaven.
I am working at the same office my mom worked at. No one here has said anything to me about her birthday. I don't know if they don't want to upset me or they just forgot. Today is a day that should be celebrated. Ugh. It's hard to sit here and think about all the reasons I miss her.
Let it be a happy day. We should celebrate her life.
Well I hope it is a happy day in heaven, after all it is her first birthday with Jesus.

Happy Birthday Momma! I miss you!I took this picture while visiting her grave one day. I know she was there. :)

Kids these days...

It really drives me crazy when I hear someone say something along the lines of, "Kids these days don't....." Some that I've heard include:
*Kids these days don't appreciate anything.
*Kids these days don't know to work hard.
*Kids these days don't know the value of a dollar.
*Kids these days don't know how to use a type writer.
*Kids these days use text lingo, and aren't learning proper grammar and spelling.
*Kids these days will never amount to anything.
*Kids these days are falling behind the kids of other leading countries.

It gets old! People shouldn't be out there making a generalization for the kids of MY generation. I just want to tell all of you that have said something like this that, I know the value of a dollar, and it is YOUR generation that has put MY future into an economic crisis. I have been paying for things that you payed 50% less for twenty years ago. The conversation about type writers and text lingo came up at my work the other day. I don't need to know how to use a type writer, I can use a computer way better than most older generations. I will challenge you to correct my grammar any day. Tell me I won't amount to anything and I'll prove you wrong! You don't know how much I appreciate the things I have in my life. YOU don't appreciate my generation!

Kids these days.

When I think of Summer I think of sun, the beach, friends, late nights, sleeping in and most of all FUN! But my summer has turned into, rain, online classes, early bed times, waking up early, work, more rain, no friends?, homework, textbooks and more rain! Not the summer I was hoping for. I'm going to have to change this.

*Seriously, is it ever going to stop raining?? I'm moving.
*Work..bleh. I want a steady pay check without working. On plus side I get every other Friday off, paid!
*I'm so tired most nights I go to bed before 10pm.
*Online classes are kicking my butt, way hard!
*I have barely seen any of my friends. :( I miss them!
* Waking up early to run....who's idea was that?!?
*Reading Political Science textbook = boring!
*Sociology textbook = quite interesting. But I'd rather be playing.

I was really trying hard to graduate a year early from college so that I could graduate with Jerry. So in an attempt to get ahead I decided to take online classes over the summer. Not a lot, 2 classes = 6 credit hours. So for the past three weeks I have been wasting precious summer reading books and writing on a discussion board. I took these classes through Western Wyoming Community College because I thought they would be easier and much cheaper. They were definitely cheaper, about $50o less! But way!! In Political Science I have about 20 assignments to do each week and about 10 assignments in Sociology. That is ridiculous! I'm suppose to be on Summer break. THEN last week my advisor emailed me telling me that I can apply for the teaching program this Fall! yay! =) But I found out that the last semester of the teaching program is all student teaching meaning I will graduate a semester after Jerry because I can't student teach during the summer. So why am I taking these summer classes then?? Well who really knows? I'll be a semester ahead I guess.

Haha. Well the point of this is, I'm ready for a REAL summer break!
Friends, please call me so we can hang out. I miss you.
Rain go away! Really!

In other news:
*Flying J closed it's restaurant, how sad. :( I spent a lot of time there, and I love those ladies!
*Brett moved to Cheyenne.
*We went Fishing on our boat yesterday. We forgot the plug and almost sunk it. No fish. RAIN, stupid rain, it was freezing!
*Played BINGO yesterday, I didn't win.
*Played pool yesterday, I think I won once. Which is a big accomplishment for me.
*Jon and Kate from Jon and Kate plus 8 are getting a divorce? No way!

Your car is on....FIRE!?!

Yesterday after getting off work I headed to Jerry's house. He was outside working on his car (nothing abnormal for Jerry) and he said he was about done. I got in the drivers seat because it was cold outside. I just messed around with the stuff in his car, then he got in the passenger's seat and told me to go to Auto Zone. He wanted to get some more pipe for his cold air intake, or something like that. I don't normally drive Jerry's car because he is so protective of it. As we got going down the road I said, "Can you smell that?" Jerry said, "Yeah, smells like plastics burning." About three minutes later Jerry rolled down his window, and I said, "Seriously! Smell that? Should we pull over?" Jerry, obviously not as worried as I was said, "Nah, we'll make it to Auto Zone." I thought he knew what he was talking about. Then I heard something and turned down the radio, about that time black smoke started pouring out of the hood. So we pulled into the ball fields where I didn't know how to open the hood. Once the hood was opened...there were FLAMES! It was so scary, luckily Jerry's step dad was at the ball fields, who also happens to be a fire fighter. I thought for sure that he would have fire extinguisher, what fire man doesn't? Well he didn't, they started using MY blanket to hit it, but it kept burning. By this time there were about 15 kids from the skate park surrounding the car. Luckily one of the boys brought a Monster Energy Drink and they poured it on the fire. Oh and I forgot one thing, the whole time this annoying lady was asking me if she should call the fire department. So finally she called them, but we later canceled the call. Of course Evanston Police showed up; they have nothing better to do.

Jeff, Jerry's step dad towed him home. Jerry was so grumpy. And I don't blame him. He loves his car. But why did I have to be driving when it started on fire??

To finish off our Friday night we played pool with my dad, ate dinner with him. And ended the night by visiting Jerry's grandma, uncle and sleeping cousin. We were in bed by 11. We're quite lame, I know.

So as a result of the car fire, we are going to Salt Lake today to buy some parts. Woo hoo. lol Another day looking at car crap. haha.

I hope your Friday night was better than ours. =]

so, uhm. Blogging?

I can't really tell you the reasoning behind this blog. I have been debating getting one for awhile, and the debate went something like this in my head.
-Get a blog.
-No, stupid. Blogs are stupid.
-Get one, you can write about stuff.
-No. Stupid, blogs are stupid.
-Get a blog.
-Okay. Create Blog.
haha Ridiculous. But here I am with a blog. I can now be Justine's follower...possibly the biggest reason I have a blog at this point.
Nah. I don't know. I think it will be fun. It will keep me busy at work.
So if you find your self reading this...often, I will try to keep your entertained. =)
