Mama said there'd be days like this: Or what a crappy day

So, as most of you know it rained today. A lot. I woke up to the pitter patter on my window and immediately wanted to roll back over and go to sleep. However, I knew that wasn't going to happen so it was time to face the day.

What you all should know about me is that I love the rain. I love the rain when it's warm outside and I can play in it, or when it's cold and rainy I can lay on the couch and watch a good movie or read a good book. 

BUT today, I could do neither. I had to walk in the cold rain and wind to classes that I didn't want to go to. UGH! I actually ended up driving to class because I'm a big baby and I don't have an umbrella here. I run into the building in which my class is being held and I realize as soon as I get to the 3rd floor after climbing the damn stairs that I forgot to feed the meter. So back down the 3 flights of stairs I went.

Class was fine, but I just didn't feel right. So, I went to church. It's been way too long since I've been. I sat and cried and felt better than I have in months. I decided to give myself some silent time when I got back to my dorm, and I ended up falling asleep.

Naps are wonderful. I dreamed about good food, and good people. I think God gives me good dreams when I'm having bad days, weeks, or even months.

HOWEVER I come back from class this afternoon only to be greeted by the greatest roommate in the world, and one of the greatest neighbors I've ever had: Claire and Amy. I love them both to death and they make me smile all the time

I get to see my amazing family this weekend and I Can't wait! Love you all!

So ok, all in all it wasn't a bad day. It actually turned out to be a pretty good day!

"Marley and Me" or Cry fest '09

It was around 9:30 last night when I finished my homework and saw the oh so adorable commercial for the movie "marley and me". I thought about how I hadn't seen the movie and how i really wanted to, but hadn't gotten around to it. SO I made mistake number 1! I got comfy on my futon, got on itunes and rented this blessed movie....

The first hour and a half I was preparing myself for what was to come... I knew what was going to happen because I read the book when I was little. But hey, things like that don't usually bother me. Mistake number 2: Believing I was "stronger" than this. So I was watching the movie and I actually liked it a lot. I have to say I have a weakness for Owen Wilson and I really like Jennifer Aniston.

Here comes the sad part.... I"m sitting in my room, in the dark, while my roommate is sleeping ever so soundly and it is as if the flood gates were opened..... I SOBBED! No, I wept. I don't think I have cried that much in a very long time... Now, it may not have been only the movie that made me cry, as most of you know it had been 8 years since my Dad passed away on Tuesday, and the emotions were still a little raw.... That was mistake number 4.

As the movie ended, I continued to cry, no sob, no weep.... and made my way to the bathroom where I discovered mascera.... EVERYWHERE! Not just under my eyes, but down my cheeks, on my neck, smeared on my t-shirt.... mistake number 5.... wash your face BEFORE watching Marley and Me.

Overall, it was a great movie and I totally enjoyed it!

I know it's been awhile since I"ve updated my Blog but things really have been crazy around here. I've been doing school work, real work, and family work.

This post is dedicated to my Dad, the lover of all things....

Love to all
