It's here! Time to enter a new chapter =)

It is almost JULY! Where has the summer already gone?! I can't believe it's going by so fast. But I'm kind of excited too!

Lots of things have happened, I mentioned earlier about the problems with the school I graduated from and my teacher certification process. We'll it's just been a giant mess. Someone on facebook said earlier, it's amazing what the possibility of being sued will do to someone. Long story short my certification papers were turned in yesterday afternoon and I was certified by this morning.

With certification came my admission into my master's program! I am so excited! I start Monday! After thirty years of teaching, my mom thought now was as good as time as any to finish hers. So she will start the program with me. I think this will be a great experience for us to do together.

Rob is in a wedding this weekend. It should be fun for him. It's one of his friends and coworkers. I on the other hand know not a sole so it will be quite interesting.

Stay cool,

Heat Wave!

Talking about a heat wave, the south is about to heat to DEATH! Just looked at and for our town it says it is 99 and the heat index is at 109! The heat is unbearable! I am someone that is addicted to the outdoors and the sunshine. Bring it on! However, it is just TOO hot with the humidity that us Georgia people are blessed with!

Despite the recent rant on my suffering with the heat, I was drawn to blog today after caring for our four year old pit that is an outside dog! I use to work at a vet clinic, have six dogs between mine and mine at moms, and just genuinely love all animals. So with all that being said, I am disappointed with the care I have given "Beast" the past few days! The heat I listed for today is just today's, it's been like this for a few days.

Yesterday when I went outside to layout I checked on beast first. Sometime in the three hours since Rob had given him fresh water annnnnd food. Beast had drank all of his water and started digging a huge hole trying to get out of the pen and get to water. Naturally, this situation made me aware of the unforgiving heat. I immediately let him out of his pen and on the runner, which allows him to head to the edge of the woods and get more shade and began to be more conscious about refreshing his water.

Today, I started the day out with a mission. I let beast on his runner first thing this am and set a goal to refresh his water ever two hours. However, I went out after just a measly 45 min and his water was scalding. Therefore, I have now started putting ice in his water.

I know that it is not possible for alot of people to be on hand and refresh water for their outside animals this quick. However, as somewhat of a plea if anyone reads this please try your best even get your kids involved to refresh your animals water in the heat as often as possible.

Thanks for listening to my little rant. I hope it brought some attention to these problems. =)

It's a waiting game . . . .

It's almost the weeeeekend!!!!

I know that everyone is excited that it's the weekend, but I have my own reasons. I'm going STIRCRAZY sitting here all week waiting to hear about jobs and to start my masters. I feel sooo unproductive it's ridiculous.

However, I have all of the necessary paperwork filled out to apply to work in Tallahassee. So I have done something! I also have all of my paperwork and almost all of mamas done to start our masters program June 28! This will give me something to do to pass the time until I hopefully get a job!

We came home from tally last weekend to a huge mess. Rob's roommate who is never here and hasn't paid rent had was at his house the entire time we were gone. This do not go over well, At ALL. Mainly because people who we didn't know were at the house with all of our belongings. I know your thinking well if Rob's friends with him surely you trust the people the guy would bring around. WEllll, in a perfect world yes. WE looooove the guys family so we've tried to be really nice and uunderstanding, but its just getting out of control! It's just a really big mess and all of our belongings are in that apartment. And we can't afford to replace anything- so we are really looking forward to moving on and gettiing out of here!

Rob is really excited about the possibility of moving to Tally. I on the other hand do not want to be that far from my mom so I'm still holding out hope for home. It's a prayer everyday and if anyone can do it it's my GOD!

WEdding plans are going. We kind of thought by doing a destination wedding we could keep it small . . . . hah, it's not looking that way.

Until next time, I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!

Hello All,
I technically didn't make it for my weekly blog-but I tried. It's been a super hectic week of hospitals, job applications, wedidng planning and graduations.

My fingers are slowly on the mend. You never know how reliant you are on your fingers till you break two. It was definitley no goooood. We took the tape off on Monday and you could actually feel the breaks. Gross to some but toooottally cool to me =)!

My brother william has chrons disease, acid reflux and ulcers in the small intestines. William is at least six foot two and in the last year has gotten down to a meesly 120 pounds. He loooks sooooo bad. Well after a week of unbearable pain the doctor finally told him to go to the hospital. So, after the hospital visit, a couple thousand dollars, three bags of ivs, and two prescriptions we found out he had a kidney infection as well. His health is slowly getting worse and I feel so bad for him. He use to be a very social 21 year old and now he hardly ever leaves the house. So, I said all of this to ask for some prayers. The medical bills are getting outrageous and with mama already working three jobs I don't know how she's going to handle it. And we just want his pain to be manageable.

Wedding planning- we have decided to get married on a cruise ship. Having to plan and pay for a wedding by ourselves was getting overwhelming and this way everyone gets a vacation. I'm finally getting excited about it.

Job Search--I have broadened the job hunt to Tallahassee Florida. My cousin lives there, I spent a MANY of summers here and I just need a job. I would have to get certified in the state of Florida but i would have a year for that. So shoot some prayers up for that!

We ended the week going to my cousin Alex's graduation. It was kind of bitter sweet without Aunt Marolyn (alex's grandmother). However, I know she was beaming up in Heaven and I'm sure she could hear us cheering up there =).

I hope everyone has an amazing week and enjoys these gorgeous summer days!
In his name,
