January 15, 2018 – Texas is Moody; Today I Am Not!

I lied yesterday! I didn’t go to bed early! I think it was at least 1am before I went to bed! I was going to go to bed early, but then I started using my phone and you know how that story ends! haha.

Today, I woke up, read my Bible, and read some more of “The One” finally! Then, Lydia came over and we watched two Christmas movies because I still haven’t watched all the ones I recorded! haha. We played scrabble, ate pizza sandwiches, and then played King’s Corner!

It was warm enough today, that I could have gone outside in shorts and been more or less comfortable. Tomorrow, it’s supposed to snow and school has been canceled! I can hear the wind right now and it sounds beautifully haunting! I hope it snows again! That would be AWESOME!

When Lydia left, I tried to watch The Bachelor, but it didn’t record properly, so I have to wait for it to come on the app! -_- This one seemed like a good one too! haha. Bibiana and Krystal are so ridiculous! I’m not a fan of Bekah K, either! Tia seems really likable though, so we’ll see! Maybe it’s just the southern bell in her. haha. I can’t believe I started watching this show! I don’t even think I like Arie, but it’s fun to watch the girls!

I also finally used my crockpot for the first time! I made bbq pulled pork and it’s SO GOOD! That reminds me, I better go put it in the fridge before I forget! That would be so like me! Good night!

Janurary 6, 2018 – β€œSurviving on Her Own at 24”

β€œShe is a marvelous young lady surviving on her own at 24 now. I’m very proud of you for doing so well on your own.” – Facebook post from my dad describing me.

“Surviving on her own at 24” is honestly the best and only way to describe my life right now! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Today, I didn’t do ANYTHING! I finished The Guard and the Elite and sat there for maybe 15 to 30 minutes the cute, but not attractive, AT&T Guy gave us a new modem because after not even a month, ours wasn’t working! πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜’

It’s now 1:30 am, I am still not in bed by midnight and I have to get up for church at 8am! I’m really failing at this whole, “going to bed on time” thing. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

January 5, 2017 – A Little Stressful, But Mostly Good

Today, I woke up and colored in my “The Selection” coloring book for about half an hour. Then, I read the Elite and took turns reading the Guard and the Favorite as well to match the scenes together! 😁 I read 202 total pages! 😁 Reading is so soothing! πŸ“šπŸ“– To be a part of another world, especially after dealing with so much stress in my own world for a year, is just so magical! πŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ¦„

A minor problem of the day is that I got a second-degree burn from putting pizza in the oven. πŸ• πŸ”₯ On the bright side, the pizza was AMAZING! So, at least there’s that! 😁 I also tried some hard apple cider mom gave me and it was good, but weird… like a mix of apple juice and apple soda… πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸπŸŽ

Unfortunately, our stupid cable/internet box isn’t working, so I have to wait between 1 and 4 tomorrow for an AT&T Guy to come by. πŸ˜’ It could take up to FOUR HOURS for him to fix! 😭 When the first guy to set it up, it only took an hour or so, so I’m hoping he comes closer to wait and leaves quickly! It’s not like I have to leave the house, but I don’t like people, especially strangers. πŸ“ΊπŸ’»

Anyway, I’m really trying to get myself on a schedule of going to bed no later than midnight. That obviously didn’t happen tonight, but at least it’s only 1am tonight and not 2 or 3 like the past couple of nights!

January 4, 2017 – The most relaxing day I’ve had in LONG time!

I can’t tell you the last time I spent hours just sitting and reading. I do know it was at least 2016 when it happened last! Today, after getting three to five cases ahead of my readers–Jacob, Lydia, Kelli, and Naomi–for MG, I spent five to seven hours just sitting and reading The Selection! I even stayed up late just to finish the book! πŸ˜πŸ’– It’s the most wonderful and magical feeling I’ve felt in a LONG TIME! πŸ¦„πŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ§œπŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Of course, I woke up and read my Bible before doing anything else, so that’s definitely a part of why my day is so great! Still, being unemployed is one of the greatest blessings I’ve been given in as long as I can remember! 2017 was so stressful, that I honestly don’t I rested more than maybe a handful of days, but even those days were full of worries. So far, 2018 has been full of peaceful rest and I couldn’t be happier! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– PTL for His ever flowingblessings and mercies! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
