au revoir 2009

As 2009 ends, I am at a loss for words about this roller coaster ride of a year. I moved to South Carolina in January, got engaged in May, became an Aunt in September -- and this was just the beginning. I spent half the year planning my wedding and the whole year juggling work, school, and my volunteer work. There were good times and bad, but mostly good. My walk with God was strong, but I struggled with my priorities and therefore I shamelessly put Him on the back burner for awhile. I learned a lot this year and am glad I was faced with trials. I am who I am because of the good and bad that has happened to me. Some of my goals for 2010 are:

1. Spend more time building my relationship with God.
2. Thinking before I speak and trying HARD to not let those cuss words slip out! (This is something I struggle with badly.)
3. Trying not to let the little things bother me, and when they do I will try to respond in a Christlike manner instead of being crazy person.
4. It is my hope that I will be a good wife to Keith and that I will put his needs before my own.
5. That I will be able to juggle marriage, school and work with grace and poise.
6. For my weight loss/fitness progress to excel and for my desired weight to be met!!!
7. That I will sincerely enjoy my wedding day and not be blindsided by worry and stress.
8. That God would bless my organization Serenity Self Defense and allow it to grow to His desire.
9. That I will make all A's in my classes!
10. And last but not least, I want to make the time to start volunteering at a nursing home.

I have many more goals, but I figured I would stop at ten. 2009 was a challenging, rewarding year indeed, but 2010 is going to be even better. Oh yes, it will. :o)

hair loss and advil

Lately I have been a terrible blogger. (Don't worry, you guys didn't miss anything.) I really enjoy getting my thoughts out of my head and onto my blog, but this past month I feel like I haven't had time to think about anything other than the usual. The usual would be the following:

1. School. Ohhhhhhhhh school how I loathe you! My semesters are divided into two 8 week sessions so I only take 6 hours at a time. The first two classes were pretty great (I made an A and a B), but these last two...well, let me just say I do not believe that I have ever been so stressed with school related things in my entire life! I am currently in my last week of class and will be finished with this nightmare shortly. Things probably wouldn't have been so bad if my computer wouldn't have crashed in week 3, but it did. C'est la vie. I will have a two week break and then it begins again. I am praying for a better semester come the new year.

2. The. Wedding. *sigh* Wedding planning is NUTS! There are so many little details to address and decisions to be made. I feel like I have the majority of the major stuff done (buying the dress, booking the venue/photographer/video, buying the flowers) but my plate still seems to be really full. I'm currently trying to figure out the cake, alterations for my dress, ceremony/reception music, hair & make-up, invitations....and the list goes on and on. Please pray for me because sometimes I feel like I am losing my mind. I am hoping that you guys don't misunderstand me when I say these things. It's just I care so much more about the marriage and about Keith that all of this wedding stuff seems kind of ridiculous. I know that it will be worth it in the end, but goodness I feel like I'm running a marathon.

3. Christmas. This year is the first year that I will not be in Louisiana with my family for Christmas and I am pretty torn about it. For the past two years I have spent the night at my Maw-Maw's house and I just hurt at the fact that she's going to be alone. I am happy to be in SC with my bay, but I just wish that I could have both. My family and KC. The good news is that the majority of them are coming to the wedding so I'll be seeing them soon.

Okay that's all of my "usual" thoughts. Now that school is almost over and I have less that 90 days until the wedding (I repeat, less than 90!!!!!!) I am hoping that I can start my new year off with a great semester and a fully planned, beautiful wedding. Oh, and maybe a little blogging, too.
