Stopping by for a quickie!

Okay, I couldn’t stay gone for longer than a day.
I finished The Great Gatsby and proposed my topic (Gatsby’s representation of the American dream) and I’m going to start my research soon. That is not why I stopped by though, I stopped by to let everyone know …. I’m getting a tattoo on Friday…or maybe two!
I’ll be sure to post pictures and since I’m taking time off from school work Friday to get inked with J and then go to a party, I will probably be holed up in a library this weekend or spending the last weekend I’ll have with my husband for the next few months (I can’t believe the 10th is almost here) at CEC with kids, you know, family time.
I’ll try and post pics Friday night or I’ll have J do it but now I have to go write another essay on a short story…again.

EDIT: Since Jenn really, really wants to know about my tattoo I will give a hint. It’s the size of a quarter, it will go on the inside of my left wrist (so I can cover it with a watch), it is round in shape and has to do with both Nicholas and Sophia but doesn’t say their names or anything like that, its more of a symbol. J actually gave me the idea and I loved it so much that I had to get it. The other tattoo that I might (probably) get is a ladybug (very small) on my right foot, I’ve always had a thing for ladybugs and I have wanted one tattooed on my foot for awhile now. I promised myself if I got another tattoo that I would get it done at the same time, so as long as it doesn’t add too much to the price tag, I’ll do it.


A Sad Day @ Friday Night Ambulance

The time has come and I have removed my blog 365 badge, I have more important things that I need to focus on for now. I will still be blogging, just not everyday, so keep checking back here you just won’t have fresh posts everyday.
School is already taking up a huge chunk of my time and it will only get harder once Luis leaves on the 10th. I’m going to be relying on J for a lot of help because this English class is a lot of work crammed into 8 weeks. I have to read The Great Gatsby and write a research paper about it and I’m really wishing I hadn’t slacked in high school and actually read that damn novel.
I’m off to read because I’m going to be doing a lot of that and writing too but I’ll be back here when I find some spare time and I’ll try to pop in every once in a while to say hi to you guys on your blogs. See you around. 😦

Boring Sundays

Tomorrow school starts for me, again, my time off between classes was too short. I can’t wait to be done with school and the sad thing is that after this summer I’m still only half way there. This quarter I’m taking English 1302 (ughhhhh) and Western Civilization (J is taking this one with me so it shouldn’t be bad at all), so I will soon be back into bitching about school mode. Sorry, I know you guys don’t like hearing it so I will try to keep it to a minimum but God, I hate English. I’m not really sure how I passed English 1301, of course I have a couple of classes like that.

So today I am taking the opportunity to clean the house and go through stuff with Luis before he leaves. The house is filthy, the dishes need to be done, laundry needs to be folded, the upstairs needs vacuuming and I need to pick up poop in the backyard (don’t you just love dogs).

Basically, there is nothing interesting going on here and I don’t foresee that changing any time soon so I’m starting a new thing, Boring Sundays.

Home again, home again jiggety jig!!

We’re back from Houston and I’m exhausted, I have laundry to do and blogs to read. I’m too tired to be funny, hell I’m too tired to type, so these are funny things that happened with no explanation.
We stopped at Burger King on the drive home and I threw french fries at J’s car and ketchup packets at Princess through the windows.
Last night J and I went out with my cousin, Mere, we made fun of trashy whores and almost went to get tattoos at midnight.
J and I both took our finals for our class and both got Cs in the class, ruined our GPAs but yea, we passed!
We had our egg hunt yesterday at 5 pm but last night when we got home from the bar we found 2 more eggs in the grass.
Easter was awesome, the rodeo was awesomer and I am awesome-ist!

The Evolution of the Funny Face

Yesterday we got Nicholas’ spring school pictures back. I cracked up laughing, he was making a “funny face.” The “funny face” is what we called it so many years ago when he started raising his eyebrows and smiling so painfully it couldn’t be natural. It looked like this.

Mere thought it was hilarious, so much so that every time she saw him she would ask for the “funny face,” everyone wanted to see the funny face. We would take pictures and instead of asking him to say “cheese!” we would say “make the funny face.” Over the years the painful smile faded to an almost believable smile but the eyebrows stayed raised.

When the photographer clicked this school picture he made sure the “funny face” would not be forgotten, it would go down in history. This is the picture that will be in his scrapbook as his first year of school, this is the picture I will show his wife someday, the picture from the year he became a big boy. This picture will never be forgotten and who would want to forget something that freakin’ adorable?

Wait, my day isn’t over yet.

Almost immediately after hitting ‘publish post’ on that last post my husband yelled from the other room that he had gotten his orders, finally. After he told me I immediately felt like puking then I felt numb…his orders are for Fort Sill, Oklahoma. This is the last place I want to go and despite him saying he doesn’t want to go there either, he seemed awfully chipper. My depression lately has been pretty bad but that just increased my hopeless feeling by 100 percent. I am not happy and I certainly don’t think moving to another state, where I know no one, have no family or friends, is going to help. For now, we have agreed for me to stay here with the kids till Nicholas finishes school but after that what we do is up in the air. I’m so close to my degree I can taste it and I feel the time coming soon that I will have to choose, a job or school. I wish I could just crawl under a rock.

Feeling a little better.

J and I worked on our lesson today and although it was extremely difficult, we rocked it! I contacted my instructor (my classes are online) and he told me that I was doing very well in class with the exception of my midterm and my overall grade isn’t important (yeah right, he obviously wasn’t counting on scholarships). So, basically if I just ignore my midterm grade I still have a very high A, so I can just pretend until the end of the quarter.
