Ohhh Noooo


I sincerely apologize. I've been ridiculously neglectful. Sorry mom and dad! I'm back. Brendan and I were driving in the car tonight and it came to my realization that I have a blog that has a few readers and that I hadn't touched it in 2 months! Oops.

Therefore, I will update you all on my life. I have been working a lot. I'm incredibly thankful for the job I have. It's a solid 40 hours a week. It's helping provide for Brendan and I and I couldn't ask for more. Plus everyone at the Y is really nice. So that's always a bonus!

Brendan and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary. This past year has been the most incredible year I've had in a long time. It went super mega fast. I can't believe it is also almost a year since we moved to El Paso. That is when I started this blog. And I will continue to update this blog on my adventures through life.

I start school at University of Phoenix for my BSHS degree in 4 days! (Bachelor of Science Human Services). I have never been more excited to continue my education. Brendan also starts school at El Paso Community College tomorrow! He has a full-time schedule. I don't think he realizes how busy he is going to be. But college for him is only going to be 1 or 2 semesters. In order to enlist in the Navy, he must complete 15 credit hours because he only has a G.E.D. Hopefully everything with school goes smoothly. 44 of my credit hours from Spring Arbor transferred, so I'm scheduled to be done with U.O.P. in May of 2012. It sounds like a long time, but it really isn't. I only have to take 21 more classes to graduate with my bachelors degree.

Another key plan Brendan and I have is that we're going to move back to Michigan. We were originally planning on moving back in June/July, but that will be held back until about August. I have a class where I must acquire Field Experience. It is from June 10 - August 12. The Y will most likely allow me to do that volunteer experience there, so we're just going to stay here until that is done. It makes more sense.

Moving on quickly, Brendan and I now have a beautiful dog. Her name is Luna and she already loves us so much! Here's my little monkey...she's cute! You can't even lie!

Unfortunately, that is about the only good picture I have of her right now. She HATES cameras. She growls at mine all the time. And makes angry puppy faces. She's a malti-poo/chihuahua mix so she won't get very big. Which is good!

On the negative side of things, the father of all the puppies passed away on Wednesday last week. He got hit by a car on Monday and we took him to the vet. He had internal injuries. He seemed fine all day Tuesday. On Wednesday he wouldn't eat meat, he wouldn't move or do anything. Brendan and Melanie took him to the vet again. They checked him out and said he needed to stay for a while. They called later that day and said things were not looking good for him, so they recommended we take him to the animal hospital. On the way to the animal hospital, Chubbs passed in Brendan's arms. We miss him a lot.

Okay guys, I'm done. For now. I'm going to try and update more soon! I don't want to be terrible at updating my readers on my life.

Love, peace and chicken grease.
