Good afternoon friends!

"Where have I been?" you ask?

Well.....life is weird like that.

I've been here the whole time.

Just not looking to share my world again until some things got sorted out.

I'm in a better space now so here we go again!

Thanks for being patient.

I'll be blogging again VERY soon.

I'm not too good at this blogging thing....

So I've just realized that I haven't posted on the blog in over a year. I've done a few things on the Facebook page but nothing here on the actual blog. I need to log on tomorrow and clean the blog up a bit. Some big changes have happened and I need to acknowledge them. Until tomorrow.

30 Days of Thanks- Days 1-15

Several of my friends on Facebook have been posting something they are thankful for every day for the month of November.  I decided to write a blog about it instead.  So here are days 1-15:

November 1st:  I am thankful for my life.  I love being alive and I love my life.  Thanks for creating me Dad and Mom!

November 2nd: I am thankful that I got to know my Grandma and that she was such a big part of my life.  I miss her every day and hope she would be proud of the woman I have become.

November 3rd: I am thankful that I knew my Nana.  She had such an influence on who I am today and I miss her so much.

November 4th:  I am thankful for my awesome Dad who took on the role as sole caregiver when I was young.  He did a great job raising us and I am so proud that I got to follow in his footsteps and join the fire department.

November 5th: I am thankful for my Mom and the fact that we have a relationship despite her absence for some of my life.  I am also glad that her treatments are working and she is beating her illness!!

November 6th: I am thankful for my wonderful Fiance, D.  He is truly my best friend and I am so lucky to have him in my life.  We will be getting married in 6 months and I can't wait to be his wife!!

November 7th: I am thankful for my ferret Teddy.  He is super awesome and I love him so much. 

November 8th:  I am thankful for my ferret Grover.  He is the perfect addition to our family and quite a personality.  I love him so very much.

November 9th: I am thankful for my job.  I love what I do for a living and am blessed that I get to have so much fun at work.

November 10th: I am thankful for my sisters J and S.  I couldn't ask for two better sisters and am so lucky that I got them!!

November 11th:  I am thankful for the LVFD.  I love being a member and helping our community.  It's so much fun!!!!

November 12th:  I am thankful for my health.  I have a few medical issues but mostly they don't bother me.  I am thankful that I am able to be well enough to live my life, enjoy my hobbies, and work full time.

November 13th: I am thankful for the freedom to practice my religion freely and without persecution.

November 14th:  I am thankful for my blog and the fact that I am able to write and entertain people with my writing.

November 15th: I am thankful for my sense of humor (which apparently I got from my Dad)  :D

Stay tuned for Part 2 at the end of November.  Until then remember to BE THANKFUL!!!

It's been THAT long?!

Seriously though.  It HAS been that long since I posted here on ATGAOP.  I guess I have to update what's been going on in the last 3 months since you heard from me last.

First of all let me say that D and I got ENGAGED on December 5th!  He totally took me by surprise by getting Teddy in on the act and proposed as I sat on the couch.....watching TV.....in my PAJAMAS!  It was totally romantic and very sweet.  But that's how he is.  :)

We hosted dinner this year for Yulemas on Christmas Day (we have some Christians among us Pagans....but it's ok!)  We didn't burn or otherwise destroy the food (thanks for the help Ma) and had an entirely delicious dinner.

We went to visit D's family the weekend before and I got a blender from D's mama.  Very cool and awesome to make milkshakes in. :D

January and February came and went without any big stuff going on.  As per usual those two months are usually typically boring and that's fine cause I just want the winter to be OVER so we can start in with all the awesome spring stuff.  Like trips to the beach, hiking, and taking Teddy for walks (which he REFUSES to do when it's cold).

Well now it's March.  Hello March.  March is funny because it's an action as well as a month.  So technically you can march through March.  How many times can I say March in this blog.  Don't test me.  :)

We celebrated my Mom's birthday by taking her out for chinese food and getting her this embarrassingly HUGE cupcake balloon.  And then they gave her ice cream and we sang Happy Birthday as obnoxiously and as loudly as we could.  Super awesome and she was thoroughly mortified!

We attended my niece T's Sweet 16 party held at a night club!  She wore this GIANT red tulle ballgown and I spent part of the night reminding her and her friends to stop stepping on it!  No wardrobe malfunctions happened! Thank goodness!

I was moved to a new jobsite at the beginning of March...in Manhattan.  I don't mind the commute because I don't have to drive.  I nap on the train.  Which is awesome.

We are heading to see D's parents this coming weekend so I will see ya next month with a new post!!
