Well, tomorrow's the dreaded day for me. Trav's was Monday.
I'm feeling a little if-y on things. I'm not sure if I'm ready to dive back in and getter done or if I'm ready to hyperventilate. I guess only time will tell. Trav was much more graceful in his return. No freak outs. No tears. No fear. He just got up and went to school. I, on the other hand, am a different story.
I'm registered for 19 credits (I've gotta get through some how) and hoping to handle this load with much more pizazz than my last semester. My hope is that I'll be really good at focusing and staying on top of my work load. My other hope is that I'll be brave enough to tell my fellow peers NO. One thing I've learned about people is there are a lot of needy ones out there. They'll suck you dry in no time. I'm going to have to learn how to say no and stick to it.
More than anything, though, I want to pack my bags and run away from "life". Just disappear and leave all my worries behind. And of course, I'd have Trav by my side. Hehe. Too bad that's not realistic. :s
I'll try to keep ya'll posted on things through out the semester. Please be patient with me if a week or two...or three rolls by and there's not a new post. It's not because I'm leaving town - it's because I'm trying to stay alive. LOL.
Happy birthday my little Mercydez. Uncle Trav and I love and miss you. We hope you're able to have cake and ice cream in heaven with Grandmother & Grandpa. We are celebrating you today, sweetie. I love you!
Well, we're home. We had such a wonderful vacation out in Minnesota. As scary as snow can be to drive in, I sure loved playing in it. I also loved looking out the windows and seeing the ideal white Christmas.
We had so much fun playing games (kicked Nolan's trash in seven's! Mwahaha!), visiting extended family, getting together with friends, cooking, reading, sitting by the fire place, playing with our adorable niece, Kherington. It was sooooooo nice. Trav and I were discussing how quickly the time went. It honestly felt like we blinked a couple of times and BAM! It was time for us to leave. :(
Since being home we haven't done a lot. Our flights were delayed, our luggage was lost, and on our way home from the airport, the car in front of us fishtailed, spun in a few circles, and hit the barriers on one side of the bridge we were on - then spun and hit the barriers on the other side of the bridge. It was terrifying to witness. I was pretty shook up. For a few seconds we thought we were going to hit them. After we realized we were safe, we pulled over to check on the people in the SUV. I couldn't tell how bad the injuries were or how many people were in the car because the windows were tinted. Thank goodness they were okay. In shock, but okay. Needless to say, we didn't get home until 10:30 or 11:00 on New Years Eve.
We also didn't do a whole lot of celebrating because I started vomiting shortly after the clock struck 12:00 midnight. I celebrated New Years with my head in the toilet. Not joking either. I looked at the clock, 12:03, and wished Trav a happy New Years as I made a mad dash for the bathroom. It's was awful. I wasn't able to keep anything down. And I was so dizzy I was even DREAMING things were spinning. I woke up dizzy. It was bizarre.
I'm starting to feel better now, but I'm terrified to eat anything solid. That'll hurt coming back up. Gross, I know. But I have to think about these things. :s
Trav goes back to school tomorrow and I start my next semester this Wednesday, January 5th. Neither of us are quite ready to get back in the groove of things, but what can we do about it? Not much. So, we're trying to be strong. We're keeping our chins up. :)
Anyway, we hope you had a better New Years celebration than we did! We hope this year brings a lot of goodness and growth.
