It was weird having Marcus gone. I have never lived on my own. I lived with my parents, dorms, to getting married and moving in with Marcus. I have never had to live on my own. Well, while Marcus was gone not only did I have a lot of stuff to deal with (which is mentioned in previous blogs) but I had to work tons, go to school, and make sure all bills were paid. Kinda a 6 week crash course in life! I am glad that crash course is over.
Speaking of countdowns, when Marcus returning home countdown ended, a new one began. This one is for my birthdays. Birthdays are kinda big deal in my family. We tend to celebrate them all week and beg for special treatment during that week. Well, I am very much looking forward to my birthday this coming September 8th. Not very far away!! I am a little excited. It is weird though. I am turning 22. No longer a kid anymore! Along with my birthday coming up, of course I started working on a birthday list. Last year I really didn't have one. Or really the year before that. But, usually for me the list is prepped months in advance, so really, I am behind schedule. Here is what I have so far.
New pots and pans where the Teflon won’t chip off
Nice dishtowels and wash clothes for the kitchen
Beauty and the Beast on DVD
Corelle dish ware
Munch Money (Wesleyan Café)
Downeast Basics or Maurice’s gift cards
Gift card to HyVee, Supersaver, or Wal-mart (Groceries)
Not going to lie, my birthday list scared me. I noticed that the things I want are not CD's or anything I thought I would list. Most of it is stuff for my kitchen and GROCERIES!! Who would have thunk? I want groceries for my birthday? I HAVE to be growing up. Also, I mention dish ware, dish towels and wash clothes, and I want pots and pans where the Teflon doesn't chip off. Can you tell I have lived on my own for a little while now? Of course I add clothes from my two favorite stores Maurice's and Downeast Basics. LOVE!
Well, along with August being almost here, school will be starting up again soon. Marcus will begin his student teaching to finish up his B.M.E and we are both done in December. I am a little nervous for this upcoming semester. It is going to be busy and stressful! I am sure everything will work out though.
Lots of Love!
