Couponing, Running, & Parenting…. All In A Days Work
When The Waves Get Too High And Sea Chickens Fly Too Low!
A lot has happen in the past few weeks. Some have been good and others have been bad. I have always been told that the best thing about bad days is that they end. Why do we have these day where we want to just rip the first face off that smiles to us? I should not complain because things could be a lot worse. Let me tell you about the bad news first.
I went on this interview for a job I was really excited about. I had made it to the second round of interviews and I left there feeling very secure that I was going to get the job. I came home from work a few days later and found that the position had been canceled. I was very upset and felt that it was just another slap in the face. This job was going to make me and my girlfriends life so much better. I guess it was not my time yet. I have been waiting for a long time for a opportunity like this to come along. I am now feeling like I am stuck in third shift hell and there is no escape. When will it be my time?
The second bad thing of the week was that I found out that my Great Aunt Pat had passed away Tuesday morning. She was the last one of my grandma’s siblings. She was only about 64. I guess people on my Mom’s side of the family die real young. Thats why my Mom always says she is going to die soon anyways. Aunt Pat was a very sweet lady. She was so full of happiness and love. She could get a whole room to smile by the sound of her intoxicating laugh. I am going to miss her and I will never be able to forget her.
Chilling on the beach with my love!
I don’t like to focus on the bad a lot but you get the jest of how my week has been but now let’s get to the good stuff. My girlfriend took me down to Holden beach about two weeks ago and it was great to finally get away. We had such a great time. I took her out on the beach at sunset and we laid on a blanket and just talked for a few hours. The next morning I got her up at five and we went and got some coffee and watched the sunrise together. After going back to the house and taking a short nap we got up again and spent the whole day on the beach. We got burnt so bad! Then we enjoyed a cookout with her family and went to bed to get ready to come home the next day.
We had a great fourth of July too. Brittney had to work so I had to wait on her to get off so we could finalize our plans. I ended up hanging with my best friends Cattie and Tristan. When Brittney finally got off work we headed down to Carowinds and watched the fireworks there. The only bad thing about that was we were in traffic for an hour and a half trying to get home. It was a great holiday and great first one for Brittney and I.
This week my girlfriend and I really started to talk about our future and when we would want to get married. We know we want to do it on the beach and just have a small wedding of 50 of out closest family and friends. It was great to talk about this with her. I have not proposed yet and I am not ready to do that yet but it is coming. I am thinking sooner that she knows.
I know that life can be hard and unexpected but that is why we have to keep moving forward. I really should start taking my own advice. This had been a rough couple of days and I know now not to sweat the small stuff and put my best foot forward. Beware of sea chicken(seagulls) cause they will poop on your head. I just thought I would throw that in there.
