All good things.

It's my last day at work in Maine! I'm sooooo excited!
Also, my computer is functioning again! I'm not sure what happened, and I'm pretty sure it's a temporary thing, but I'm excited! She just needs to hold on for a few more weeks, then I can worry about replacing her for realzz.
Oooh, AND, I went shopping with Molly yesterday to kill time, and I found the most amazing shoes that make me happier than any shoes should!

My computer is dying!!! Apparently the hard drive is broken, and cannot be fixed... Just one month after the warranty runs out, lovely. Fortunately I managed to get it running enough to transfer all of my music and pictures to an external hard drive, so the loss will be minimal. I'm just disappointed that it had to happen now, just weeks before moving.

So, computer shopping! I'm going to need one to keep in touch with Brian, family, and to job hunt. I'm leaning towards an HP laptop, but I'm not sure yet. Any advice?
And, since I haven't posted pictures in awhile, Sweet Alyssa playing the 'Thank You' game:

Twenty-four has started off better than I expected! My sisters and I spent my birthday morning shopping in Freeport, and then stopped for pretty margaritas on the way home. My mom and Jed set up a big, delicious BBQ at their house, and my brother-in-law followed it up with the most amazing ice cream cake I've ever tasted. Brian called at exactly the perfect time and I got to talk to him for twenty whole minutes, which was fantastic.

Being 24 isn't quite as scary as I'd expected either. Really I've just decided to save all my anxiety for a mid-life crisis. And, if Jessica Simpson is only 29, then being 24 isn't a big deal at all!

I've had a revelation about this whole school 'thing'. I am way unmotivated to do it on my own, having completed only 1/4 of the stuff I need to do before the end of September. That being said, I'm not even sure that this is the best way to go to get my teaching certification. I already have my BS, and realllllly don't need/want extraneous classes or any more debt. I'm going to finish out this semester, and stop taking classes at this school, at least for now. I'm going to look into employment when I get back to Texas, and figure it out from there.

Speaking of Texass... only a couple more weeks! I have 3 days left at work, and then one week to pack everything up and hit the road. My little sister is making the drive with me, and my mom and my other sister are going to watch Alyssa while we're gone. I think we're going to leave a day early so Molls will have an extra day to spend down there with me. The farthest she has ever been from home, is one two-day trip to New York, and she didn't get past the city! I'm sooooo excited to have her as my co-pilot and show her around a bit. She will make my drive sooooo much easier!!

It's my...

Birthday Eve!!! I'm sooo excited! I have a day of fun planned with all my favorite people tomorrow, with the exception of my most favorite person, bummer. This will be the fourth birthday of mine that he's missed, aaaaand the fourth birthday that I've had since we've been together. Nice. Thanks a bunch United States Army.

But. He called today, and things are moving along. He is busy but much happier. The pup and I are just a few weeks from heading back south. We have just a few more months (ish) until we're back together! YAY!

Until tomorrow~!

Three weeks...

...until we leave for Texas!! The lease is signed, directions are printed, and I have my last day of work the 31st! Still tons of stuff to do between now and then though! Busy, busy, busy!

My apologies.

It has been quite a week, to say the least. Despite being on a hydrocodone and ice pack bender, I still managed to participate in some holiday festivities. The fourth was fun and BBQ-full, but also quite rainy. Following that was my sister's birthday. I had to work, but we celebrated again the day after with some second birthday cake... fun!

(if you watch The Office you might get this)

Yesterday was the first sunny day in a long time, and coincidentally both of my sisters and I all had the day off, so we decided to pack up the car and head to the beach for some fun! We're all a smidge red today, but it was so worth it!

A package addressed to my husband arrived in the mail recently. I knew it was likely my birthday gift, and since he is really not good at keeping secrets I had a general idea of what was inside, but none of that made me any less excited to see this:

with this inside:

YAY! So pretty! He is so thoughtful, it just makes me miss him more!!

So, I'm really sorry for the blog-vacation, and I'm going to try to be less sporadic, mostly. Hope you all had a fabulous 4th!

The Surgery Queen.

Hasta la vista, wisdom teeth! The surgery went well, in my inexperienced opinion. I was put under IV sedation, which is awesome, and nitrous oxide, which makes me feel deliciously loopy. The surgeon prescribed me some hydrocodone, which is amazing with the pain, obviously, but hasn't made me too sleepy, which I super appreciate. Tomorrow and the day after I should start to resemble a chipmunk, which is definitely the way I wanted to spend my Independance day! but it will be remedied with excessive amounts of chocolate pudding and Friday Night Lights marathons, which will heal the sting a tad!!, and will hopefully make for some hilarious pictures. I took some from today, but can't find my dang thingie to let me put my memory card into my computer, which is kind of annoying.

Also, I just realized today that my teenytinylittle blog has 44 views! Forty four! I can't tell you how excited that makes me, even though it is likely that 43 of them are just me... But anyway, if you stumble along here somehow, thank you very much. You have made my week!!!

Hope you're all enjoying an early start to your weekend! Let the festivities begin!

Brian called, and there has been some major shakeupthings going on over there. In a couple days he's heading from his unit to a new one, but not that new. He is pretty pumped, to say the least. HHC just isn't his style. He's a 'getyourhandsdirtyand get-stuff-done' kinda man, y'know?

And tomorrow is...

Wisdom teeth day!! I'm really really nervous but also pretty excited to get it over with!
Wish me luck, y'all!
