Warnings: Keep out of eyes. Stop use if rash occurs.

sooooo. exciting news. in less than two weeks, john and i will be living here:
(minus some weirdo’s toyota.)

& my favorite part:
(i’m sure john is hoping i’ll spend a lot of time here…)

I’m excited though. i’ve never had my own house. although i guess technically if you’re just renting, it’s still not your own house. but that’s beside the point. i won’t share my mailbox with a hundred+ other people!
john’s excited because he can “have music up as loud as he wants!” (pshhh. like i would let him).
uh, joke?
all in all, i think it’s a good thing. it’s still a thousand miles away from the people i love most (not counting john, obviously) but i guess sometimes you have to have that distance to realize you need it. er, something like that.
maybe one day john and i will make tons of money, and we can live wherever we want to, and i can have a baby and stay at home, and make dinner… wow. any feminist out there would kill me for saying that.
but sometimes, you know what you want to do with your life, eventually, and no one else’s opinion means anything to you.

i’m going to visit my kitty at lunchtime today (the one i “rescued” from the kill shelter… yes. i went back. no, smooshed face was not there…) ava told me she would keep miss attitude for me until i move, so that’s a little stress off me :]
by the way – i stopped and got gas this morning. since when does $4.00 give you a quarter of a tank?!
this is nice.

in other news – my dad apparently googled me and found this blog (hi, dad!)
i think that’s hilarious, and i think my dad is hilarious.
i guess i better watch my language on here from now on, although i’m sure i probably won’t.
i hate pretending to be something, or anything, i’m not.
i think somehow my parents taught me that one.
i wonder if parents ever regret the things they teach their children, such as “don’t be hypocritical”, or “don’t lie about anything”… because what happens when your children grow up, and you want them to be a certain way, or do certain things, but they’re far more concerned about not being hypocritical that they refuse to pretend?
i guess eventually you have to let them go and pray to god they turn out okay,
and be there for them when they need you…
because in the end, they’ll always be your little girl (or boy…)
and i don’t think you ever stop needing your parents.
i know i sure haven’t.

maybe this is why people wait a while to have kids…

    Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You sure do sound wise. Your Mom and I love you and your brothers and sisters more than you know, although you will understand one day, and we really do want the best for you and John. We pray for you every day and ask God to bless you, and He has, whether we know it or not.
    To get on a philosophical track like your blog, losing power during this ice storm and almost losing George has gotten my attention. Like someone said a long time ago “You don’t know what you got till its gone. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot. I dont agree with the part about the tree museum, but i get the point.
    King George is very happy with his new love and affection. Abbie actually speaks to him in a nice tone, and beleive it or not, George greeted Nathan this morning when he came home from work, and Nathan was pretty nice. The vet told us today that he is getting better and that after last week, everything is gravy. He is still sick, but we are enjoying him like we should, and as people should enjoy each other too.
    Life is too short to be hypocritical and selfish and sometimes you don’t get the chance to say “I love you” or “good-bye”.
    Thanks for being my favorite 20 year old daughter.
    We are very proud of you and John

    Love, Dad

    PS Cute house. Can’t wait to visit and/or have you leave it to move here.
