Life is weird. We work hard. We take care of our stuff. We try to get ahead. We go to school. Just when we think this is all enough, life throws a curve ball at us and it doesn't seem to be.

We will make it though.

I've been thinking a lot about friends. I think I only have two friends, besides my husband, that 100%, without a doubt, "get me". I don't see either of them that often because life gets in the way. I guess I should be thankful that I do have these people in my life.

Yesterday was the icing on the cake. I don't really want to go into all the details but it's military related and NOT deployment. Matt's time with the Army is almost up. On one hand, this is good. On the other, it's scary.

I took Friday off work. The plan was to do homework and pull myself out of my funk. I did get some homework done.

I pretty much did homework all weekend.

Matt took me out to eat Sunday. We went to Applebee's. The closest one is like 30 miles away. But that's where I wanted to go because I had been seeing the commercials all weekend. While we were there the lady sitting next to us was bitching about how dry her chicken was. Of course, she said nothing to the server but as soon as the manager asked her how things were she was more than ready to bitch about it. This reminded me how thankful I am that I do not wait tables anymore.

Matt's Mod I class is over. He got an A! It's probably the first A he's gotten since junior high P.E. I'm so proud of him. I can't wait to send his mother a copy of his grades.

As far as my classes go, I got 110% on my first Business Law test. Thank God for dumbasses and curves. I'm getting an A in my formatting class and an A- or B+ in my accounting class. There is still opportunity for bonus in my accounting class though so hopefully I will be able to get an A.

I think this weekend we are going to go out. One of my BFF's should be out with us so maybe I'll be able to get myself together.

I'm ready for sunshine and camping.

Yay for good grades. I understand not having a lot of close friends I only have like 2 as well.

Hang in there - things will get better. The Spring is coming, which means longer, warmer days, and of course, baseball!

I think that having a couple really good friends totally wins out over having a lot of just so-so ones. You're one of the lucky ones. ☺

Being a server was an awesome slash awful job. I certainly do not miss it either!

I know what you mean about the military-it's good and bad. Security and a pain in the butt! Well, whatever he decides to do I'm sure you two will work it out just fine. I love Applebees too! Wow a 30 mile drive.

Oh, life. Always full of changes. I guess it would be boring if it wasn't!
Glad you survived Business Law unscathed :) And no matter how tempting it is to stay in, go out, you'll enjoy yourself once you do!
Hoping for sunshine headed your way.

His time is almost up! HANG IN THERE SISTER!

Homework stinks. I was NEVER good at homework.

How was Applebee's? The commercials always look good and then we go there to eat and it's yuck. Almost every time. I hate that!! I hope experience was better.

OOoooo...camping! I love to camp! (In a trailer not a tent. I'm a tiny bit high maintenance)
