a much needed update...

Hey everyone...I know it's been forever since I posted on here but I do try and pop on over and follow as much as possible. I'm definitely more active in FaceBook world so if you want me to add you over there just let me know...

anyway, reason for the post is to update you all on little boy...my nephew Patrick.

This is going to get longCollapse )

Well that got long...and believe me...not as long as it could have been. Long story short, please keep Rebecca, Ron and Patrick in your prayers. A sorority sister of Becca's has set up ribbon" site to give donations to the family if you are so inclined. The website is Pat Pat Raymond Fund

Right now we need many many prayers and good thoughts coming our way that's the most important thing.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2010.
Take time to just sit back and listen. Do not jump to conclusions

Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
Smile though your heart is breaking, Smile even though it's breaking, when there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by, that's the time, you must keep on trying, smile what's the use of crying, you'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you just smile.



I continue to think this is a very cool thing. I've gathered up over $300.00 for doing nothing more than clicking a few links. Definitely worth it to check out.



Check this out you guys. It's pretty cool. I have done very little and have racked up well over $100 already!

Ahhhh....Moving you suck...seriously suck!

Thankfully, this move shouldn't be TOO difficult. When I moved in with my sister 2 months ago it was really with the understanding that I'd be out soon and I'm making that a reality. I therefore unpacked very little. There is so much already in boxes it's making this relatively easy.

In other news...there really is none. New job is awesome :) Loving it daily. I see potential issues with one of the other new AP's in the school but it's more of the "I am man, hear me roar" than really anything I am going to have serious issues with. I also have the "I am super cool because I am a National Board Certified Teacher and have my doctorate." Who cares is my feeling. I've worked in East LA, been part of a turnaround school already and am good at what I do :) I just smile and move on because I want to be a part of this. I think they do too but they don't quite know how to go about it I don't think.

Wow, that sounded all "High horsey" and stuff...i didn't mean it to honestly. I want to do well at this school and show them that I am good at what I do and make myself comfy at this place :) I know I can.

Did I mentio I can't wait to live in NH again in my cute cute cute new condo????

Moving Excitement....

You know I must say the thing about moving I like is the decorating and anticipation of the new place. The thing I hate of course is the actual "moving" and of course the freaking packing.

However, tonight I have a quiet house to myself and I'm spending time doing some shopping online for the new place. Thankfully, the paychecks from the new job have begun and that shall help with the whole "OMG...I have now living room furniture" thing that I have suddenly found myself in :)

That's it from here. Looking forward to the move and KC coming up to visit me :) I have a beautiful spare bedroom furnished with a comfy bed for anyone who wants a weekend away :)

I don't even know what subject to put on here right now. There is so much sadness on my FL right now and I wish I could just hug all of you. I am blessed to have the wonderful friends that I have both through fandom as well as through RL.

Please know, that while I do not come on here as often as I would like and I don't talk to you nearly as often as I need to, you are all in my thoughts every single day. You have all helped me to formulate the person that I am today. You have given me strength when I've made life changing decisions, you've listened when I had drama in my life, you were shoulders to cry on when mom was going through her cancer treatment and you have lifted me up in the best of times. I only hope that I have been able to do some of the same for you.

I love you all. If you haven't done it yet, call a friend you haven't talked to in a while, send an email, or post an LJ update and spread the love that we all have for each other.

For those going through this very difficult time right now, I agree with all of you "F**K CANCER" It sucks...it's horrible and awful and somehow, someway, someone needs to come up with a cure for this horrible disease.

My love to all of you.
