Southward Bound

I'm heading to South Carolina this weekend to visit a dear friend for her birthday! It's just me by myself, no hubz or step-son, and I'm so excited. I don't do this nearly enough, I use to but then we got married and have debt and hubz lost his job soooo :( . But I try to get away just me and some of my girls at least every 6 months. While I'm gone I expect nothing to get done at my house, that's just the way it tends to work, although I'm hoping hubz will suprise me and finish my coat closet and do laundry...a girl can wish.

I'll return on Sunday, hopefully with pictures and stories about the fantastic time. Don't worry that change is still coming but still isn't finalize. We should have everything all set two weeks from tomorrow and then I'll explain's gonna be BIG!

Same Day Different....

Well you get the idea. So I arrived at work this morning, at 6am, to an email that basically called me a slacker. Now I'm the first to admit that I surf the web a ton and like to be on FB and TheNEST frequently but if and only if I have nothing else going on, I'm quite the multitasker so I'm even able to do these things while working and still get things done. So when someone emails me and cc's my supervisor saying that I'm frequently behind on a responsiblity I take offense. I've been working on a big project for my branch for about the last year and since October we've been hot and heavy getting ready to deploy this new project. Needless to say since this project is pretty much my baby it's my #1 priority and everything takes second place to it. That doesn't mean things don't get done, they do, it just means they don't get done as quickly as they normally would if I didn't have this project to focus on. I hate how people thing that they're "thing" is always more important. Sorry but it's my time and I'll decide what's more important.

I woke up this morning vowing to have a good day and this didn't not help to start off my day right. However, with only a three day work week and a min-vacay to South Carolina planned this weekend I don't care. I took care of what needed taken care for this Jackass and now I'm moving on.

That change I talked about last week is slowly coming together and I can't wait to write all about it! Until then just suffice it to say that it's a BIG change and it's gonna be AMAZING and FUN!

More Change

Well, once again change is coming to the Curtsgrl household, nothing I can talk about just yet as we're finalizing some details, but suffice it to say we're super excited! I'm super exciteable though so....

In other news I'm almost done with book 3/50. Classes start back today so I don't know that I'll have much time for reading for fun, especially since both classes are online which means much better time managment on my part. Time will tell though maybe it won't be as bad as I'm thinking. Even if it is my eye's on the prize. I have two classes after this and I can apply for graduation on Friday! The end is most definately in site!

2010 Books

In an effort to direct my mind away from my baby making failure I've decided I'm going to read 50 books this year. Last year I read, but not was much as I normally do and I think it's because of school so I have a valid excuse. But I'm done with school in June and reading has always been away for me to escape from my problems and go off to another place. So I've set this 50 book goal.

The books will be a little bit of everything, because I don't want to limit myself or make it feel like chore. So 7 days into 2010 I've already read 2 books, the second one I read I finished in a week it was that good. So now I'm starting the Soosie Stackhouse series, the books that the True Blood TV series is based on. I'm super excited, haven't read a good vampire series since Twilight. The series is 8 books long but I'm sure they'll take me a bit since I'll also be fitting in 2 online classes for school.

Here's hoping I hit my mark by the end of the year.

Phantom Baby

So since I decided to not stress over my inablitiy to get PG I'm now shopping for my phantom baby that I may or may not ever get to have. I've found the stroller, it's orange and beautiful and with it being orange will definately work for either sex and therefore mulitple kids. Also, found some crib ideas. The room for the nursery is the smallest bedroom in the house, but perfect for a nursery b/c it's right next to the MBR. I found a couple of options that are called mini-cribs my DaVinci which is a well known crib maker.

Now I just need that baby!

2009 in Review

2009 as a whole was a good year. However, I spent most of the year hoping, wishing, praying, dreaming for a baby to have nothing. At the beginning it was hard and as one friend after another go KTFU and I didn't I thought my heart would break with the unfairness of it all. But then I took a deep breath, had a few drinks, and took a few steps back and rembered that with God all things are possible and I put my dream to be a mother in the hands of my savior. I trust that when the Lord sees fit I will be come a mother and there's not really much I can do about, for a control freak such as myself that's a little hard to say and belive but I have to and I do. So now without further ado I give my year in reveiw:

January - The first African-American President was elected (Barack Obama)

March - Newest nephew, Mr. Josiah Marelle, was welcomed
Visited Sarah in SC

April - Youngest niece, Ms. Elizabeth Melissa, celebrated her 1st birthday

June - Suprise shower up in Mass for SIL
Visited Cheronda in Cali

July - Oldest nephew, Anutan Tyrese, turned 10

August - VA shower and Bachelorette Party for SIL
Family vacay to OC with the lil bro

September - The month of birthdays and weddings. Most notabley SIL and hubz best friend both got married Labor Day weekend (not to each other)
Step-son turned 10
Hubz' godson turned 1

October - 2 year wedding anniversary, with many more years to come

November - SIL and her new husband hosted their first Thanksgiving dinner as husband and wife

December - Hubz and I hosted our first family Christmas at our house, it was loud and crazy and I loved it.

Now with 2010 getting started we're hoping for big things. I'll graduate in June with my MBA and hopefully hubz will get in the PWCPD, while it wouldn't be my first choice of a job for him it's what he really wants so I support him 100%. The step-son will start middle school in September and God willing it'll be a smooth transition. I'll continue to pray for those closest and far away, for our soliders and the safety of country, for our leaders to make the right choices that will benefit the masses and not just themselves and especially for the wee babe I long to call my own.

Welcome 2010...we've been waiting for you.
