No more ignoring God

Well after 3 years of it being on my heart, I am finally taking steps to attending Calvary Bible College online! I Have been thinking about this for the past 3 years and it seems like every year around this time, God puts it back on my heart again. Well I was thinking about all of the people in the Bible who ignored and didn't do what God told them to do and what He had to do in order to get their attention and I sure don't need Him to get my attention that way at all. So tonight I sent out my reference letters, tomorrow I'm getting my transcripts from my high school (Vista High...Vista, Vista, Vista all the way hey, hey, hey!) and emailing the application this week.

My bother asked me why I would want to go to bible college and what I would use it for. Well it's an easy know more about what I believe and to see where God wants to use me, plain and simple. For years I've wondered where He has wanted to use me, but I've yet to receive an answer from Him, or have I? I'm not sure. I have 7 years to finish school and will come out with a BA in Theology (makes me sound kinda smart huh?) and I am so excited to get going on this.

As my pastor told me....happy bible thumping!

Project 365 Week 2: Jan 4-Jan 10

So  here we go, week 2 of this:

Jan 4:  I finally got my garage organized...1 small step for man, 1 GIANT step for me, lol


Jan 5:  It was the start of a new delivery schedule for my PruFlo water that I love


Jan 6:  Jason and I went to the gym tonight and on the way home, we stopped off at Panera, yummy


Jan 7:  Over the weekend Hunny was not doing so well.  She vomited a few times last Saturday, again on Monday and on Tuesday.  She also had some diarrhea.  I was afraid that she after she had gotten into my trash can in the bathroom, she was blocked.  Money signs just flashed in my eyes when I realized that.  I was so worried about her only because I have seen it so many times with other peoples lets, but now it was my own.  This was the morning of our trip to the vets to find out what was going on with her.  Luckily the doctor just thought that she had an upset stomach and gave me some medication for it :) Yeah no surgery!!!


Jan 8:  My 2nd time to the gym this week!  I was kinda hungry afterwards so I stopped off at Del Taco to get some grub.  I should've known that there were going to be problems.  I asked for 2 beef soft tacos with no lettuce and an order of regular nachos.  When I got home, I found my pitiful tacos!  The meat could've been scooped into maybe a tablespoon!


Jan 9: My Project 365 kit arrived!!!!!


Jan 10: Jason, his sister Carrie her hubby Clinton and their son and I all went Ice Skating.  It had been years since I did that, but it was so much fun.  It was really dark so I was not able to get great pictures of anyone :(

Project 365 - Week 1 (Dec 28-Jan 3)

Ok so last time I wrote I was super excited about this whole Project 365. It is basically a project where you take 1 picture each and every day of the year. I figured that I will have my album here for my to work on, but I also figured that I would share it here.

My incredible boyfriend, Jason

So one of my New Years "goals" (I hate the word resolution) is to be more organized this year. I have a second room in my apartment and ever since Brad moved out I've been using that room as a huge crap catcher. Anytime I've had company coming over, I throw whatever I don't want people to see in that room. Well the past month or so I've wanted to turn it into my scrapbook room and get this huge cabinet thing outta my room so it is more of a bedroom than an office. So today I went to Home Depot and got some stuff to start organizing the room. In the process of cleaning out all the crap in there, I found some of Alyssa's (my ex Dave's daughter) crafts that we bought her during the summer.

I sat there thinking, I know no one who has a 8 year old girls who would want these things. So I sent Dave a text asking if he wanted them for her. He said yes (darn it!) To be honest I was kind of hoping that he would say no so I wouldn't have to see him. We just do not get along anymore. He has texted me some nights from anywhere from 10 to midnight just to say hi, RIIIIIGHT. So we have arranged to meet up on Monday after he gets done with his workout. Dave accused me of a lot of things and meeting up with people behind his back was one of them, even though I never did.

So I did what I had to, I sent Jason a text letting him know that I would be seeing him on Monday night. I waited anxiously to see what he would say, and was getting ready to tell Dave that he would need to come by when Jason was here. To my surprise, Jason said OK. He told me that he trusts me and knows that I am with him, and no one else. Now this is a huge shocker to me considering that 99% of all the guys I have dated in the past have accused me or were super suspicious of me because I have guy friends, that I was doing things. Not Jason. He is the first guy who actually trusts me!

Each and every day the wall around my heart keeps melting away and I have to say that I am truly falling in love with him.

So the websites sever was slammed this morning from all over the world to get this kit, but I went back to try and get it...and I got it!!!!!

Happy New Year!!!!!

Well it's officially 2009 and I am sitting on my computer waiting to purchase a (what I think) is a really cool scrapbooking kit. It's called Project 365. What it is, is a really simple way to scrapbook for each and every single day of the year! And its not really scrapbooking either. You take a picture for everyday and slide it into a page protector that is all divided to hold 7 pictures and a place to journal about what happened each day. BRB, the kit is officially on sale :)

OK well the site is super slow with all of the crazy women like me trying to order this kit, so I'll check back in a bit and see if the stupid page will download.

And now off of the scrapbooking subject. The past year was a very interesting year for me. It started out with me moving out of my 1 bedroom apartment just a few buildings down into a 2 bedroom which I was going to share with a friend Brad. He moved in and within 4 months he bailed on me! Yes, I have wonderful "friends". He also only left me 1/2 of his rent for the months he bailed out on. Fan-frickin-tastic! Needless to say, God has provided a way for me to stay in the 2 bedroom as I am pretty much settled in here. Also in January, after 4 years I finally saw the elusive Randy (Caleb's dad). I flew out to Vegas and was so scared that he would not show up, but he did. We spent the most time together that we had ever spent a whopping 3 whole days! I got so very much needed closure and found out why he is the way he is (a very long story).

In April my brother got married to his long time girlfriend, Holly up in Yosemite. It was a very "them" wedding and was very nice. I'm happy to say that they are doing wonderfully and are both adapting to living with someone other than a sibling.

May came and off to Israel I went! I'm what my friend calls "a goner". I want to go back to badly. The first time I was just in complete shock and awe. To be in the places where Jesus performed His miracles was amazing! The next time I go I will still be in awe, but not so much shock :)

When I came back from Israel, Dave and I gave us another try. We dated the previous year (2007) just shy of a year. This time we only lasted 4 months. Needless to say that accusations were thrown around and feelings and thoughts were brought up from our past attempt at the relationship.

Scrapbook vent: ARRRRRRGH!!!! After only 20 minutes the kit went out of stock! I had it in my stupid cart, but the website would not accept my password, so I had to go back, reassign the password and then when I came back to re-log in, it was gone! I am so frustrated with this, that I actually called the corporate offices and complained! I normally don't do this, but I'm upset.

And now back to our blog already in progress:

Anyways, after Dave and I finished I decided I would give me a belated birthday present, I went to the gym and got a trainer! Kyle has whipped my butt into shape and I am happy to say that I have lost 30 lbs and dropped 2 (almost 3) pant sizes in 4 months! I complain sometimes, but I know that he is just doing his job and when I look back at pictures from May, man I really appreciate him!

I also met an incredible man in October. Well re-met him. Jason and I worked together back when we were in high school 10-11 years ago. We knew that we both went to the same church, but it seemed like we were always with someone when we would run into each other. One night I was helping out at a concert at church, and my friend Harry, came up asking how Dave and I were doing (I had put our relationship on a prayer card) I told Harry that God decided to take care of the relationship. Harry asked if he could pray for me for anything and I told him, yes a guy. I told him what I wanted, even the small physical features such as tattoos and facial hair, he smiled and said OK, I'll start praying for you. Well 3 week later, here was Jason.

He is the most sincere man I have ever dated. we have been guarding our hearts for the past 3 months and last night, Jason looked at me and told me that his wall around his heart was starting to disappear and told me that he was starting to fall in love with me! It made me smile from ear to ear! It was a fantastic way to start the New Year (he told me that at 2:00 am).

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and may God bless you all in the upcoming year!
