I didn't hear you say you're sorry
The fault must be mine
I wish you all the best of luck
At finding somebody more like you

You said you'd love me always, truly
I must have changed
Cause you don't need me like you used to
I hope you find somebody more like you

I hope you finally find someone
Someone that you trust
And give him everything
I hope you meet someone your height
So you can see eye-to-eye
With someone as small as you

You came out of nowhere, made me smile
Then tore me in two
Saying, "We're very different people"
So dear, I hope you find somebody more like you
I hope you find somebody more like you
ok, so i just spent the better half of 2 hours looking at old pictures! totally was trippin' down memory lane..and i will be honest, it hurt a little bit. times change and so do people but i am glad that memories are forever. (unless of course someone jogs your memory...then you can't remember breakfast yesterday or your name...)
anyway! today and i am thankful for pictures and the memories that go with them. 
i hope to create so many more....

i miss these people...
funny how life has a way of changing...
my wonderful cousin and his beautiful wife.
we just found out they are having twins!
i am so excited for them!
*still trippin' down memory lane...*

my very best friend sarah and i..we have a million pictures of us together...and a million more of us getting ready in her bathroom...
*trip down memory lane..*
sarah is now married with two precious children and golly i miss her now that our lives are so crazy..
we used to spend several weeks together during the summer, talking, swimming, and just being.
two of my favorite pictures of myself
*they are few and far between, trust me*
 oh to be 18 again. 18 was a great year. i miss it.
*they are few and far between, trust me*

i was looking at some pictures from last year and found these.
oh how i love these people!

bluebonnet pictures

 beautiful siblings
 we loved the wheat pictures! they were almost better then the bluebonnets.
goofy picture of sky and i trying to keep our eyes open in the bright sun.....notice mine are still really squinty...

back among the living

i have thought about blogging and talked myself out of it countless times over the past month and a half..why i talked myself out i dunno. but here i am and with so much to tell you! life is constantly changing and i am still learning to go with it.

so where to start, where to start?

my poor car finally died. all dead. no more mostly dead. dead as a doornail (where did that saying come from anyway?) as you can imagine it has put a damper on my social life....oh right, i don't have much of one anyway..ok, it has put a damper on working. big time. and without work its kinda hard to buy a new car, ya know?

but as always, i shouldn't worry..... i was excited to start training for a new job with Homeschool Friend in march, at least i think it was march. anyway, HF as we will call it, is an awesome program that works with Korean students who want to learn English! it is all online via an online classroom. the students are all in Korea and i am in my bedroom. i teach 7 students in a 1:1 class tuesday-friday. its great! the only downside is that with the time difference i start classes at 5am...yes, in the morning! the first week it was easy to get up, the second week..not so much, the third week was better and i am glad that it is becoming a habit to get up when i need to. so for now it is holding me over while i look for more things i can do from home.

next: i will "celebrate" my 15 year anniversary of being a diabetic this august. i have also been in a terrible burnout when it comes to diabetes. so i applied for a scholorship to Friends For Life Diabetes Conference in FL . I had to write three essays talking about my biggest challenge in living with diabetes, my community involvement, and what i hope to gain from going to the conference. *side-note: i have found i really love to write once i start..and never fear, i do use punctuation and all that jazz when writing something important  ;) anyway, i wrote it with the full expectation of not winning. i have never won ANYTHING in my life! but guess what? yep, I WON! i am getting to go to fl. july 5-10th for a week of all things diabetes and disney! i am sooo excited i can hardly contain myself!

next: friends are wonderful and such a pain all at the same time.

next: i painted my bathroom and bedroom. no more yucky purpleish pink! its a lovely green that goes oh so well with the brown. love it!

next: rainy evenings when you are sick with a cold are the best times to blog. its a well known fact.

next: i am in love with pushing daisies. its too bad i can only watch one or 2 episodes a week....

next: i have never read "Farewell to Arms" and never want to. just an fyi.

next: my hair is now past my shoulders. hurray me!

next: i want to read some jeeves and wooster.

next: i can't remember what else i wanted to say.

next: i love you!
