Ahhh mornings, how I loathe thee.

We've been staying in my mother's apartment this summer while we get things situated on the job front. She lives on the second floor of the building, which means I get to take several trips, including first thing in the morning, into the desert heat a day to take my 74 lb dog for a walk. During these walks I have learned that my dog is afraid of ants, no matter how many lizards there are she never sees them, small children will just run up and hug her, and random adults will be terrified of her and threaten to tell the police that I had the audacity to walk her, on a leash, in the park. It's loads of fun.

Look at that face. She's the sweetest thing, but also, to some, terrifying. What can ya do?

On another note, as of this morning I have a brand new nephew and I am so excited. Mommy, Daddy, and big sister are all doing well and enjoying their time cuddling with their newest member. I can't wait for all the pictures and updates and to watch him grow up.

Have a wonderful day!

What's new?

I excel at slacking. It's one of my talents. My other talents include: reading, watching TV, gossiping about celebrities that I don't actually care about, kicking butt in candy crush and maybe even some useful talents. The slacking talent, though, is why I haven't blogged in nearly two years. So here I am making another vow to myself and whoever happens to read this, to blog, or at least journal privately, more often. 

Alrighty then. Since we've gotten that out of the way, let's see what's new. I'm currently living in Yuma, Az, which seems like a quaint place to be if you ignore the fact that it feels like Mordor when you walk outside. My husband got out of the Army and we are staying with my mom for the summer while he trains for his new job. He's actually finished training and gotten his assignment, so now we are doing the long distance house hunting thing. We'll be heading back to El Paso, Texas, but this time I know that central air and refrigerated air are NOT  the same thing, so I think I'm better prepared for it.  I actually ended up enjoying it after we got the housing situation under control. There is plenty to do and they city has various events throughout the year to keep us occupied, plus I already have friends there, so I feel confidant that this will work out well. 

Other than that, not much has changed. I did switch schools and switched my major. I've changed from business management to Psychology. I'm much happier with this field. I love learning about what makes people tick. Why one person responds to a situation in one way, and someone else responds in a completely different manner fascinates me. 

Well, that's all for now. I just figured since I'm already here I might as well say something. Sweet dreams, folks.
