...oh the list goes on...the things I love about the beach. I think it just might be my favorite of God's creation outside of people. (In fact, I actually prefer it to some people!) If only the drive there were shorter. Not that 5 1/2 hours is ridiculous or anything, but just imagine if the drive were say...non-existant! This is my dream, to live on the beach. I have decided that you only get one opportunity to live, and I'm going to live my life to the fullest. Lord willing, I will live at the beach before I die. I may not be on the beach, but I will be close by. I want to live in a beach town, where at 5:00 people load up and go to the beach after work. Where Saturdays aren't filled with boredom, and the beauty of the ocean is just minutes away. Tomorrow will be just a visit but one day the beach will be my home!

Any chance I can retire at 27?
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Over a year ago I changed careers from being a paralegal to property management. I was good at being a paralegal, but I got tired of the same ole same ole. I didn't really have the opportunity to work with people, and I wasn't passionate about it anymore. So when the opportunity came up to change careers I decided to take a leap. Property management is exciting. It gives me the opportunity to meet new people each day. I have a staff, and thankfully I'm good at this too.

So in the last year I have poured myself into a new career...too much of myself. I made it my priority...above everything else. And things started to look like that was going to be to my benefit. I was offered 4 transfers or promotions over a 3 week period. I had my choice! It was easy to turn down the first option....No Thank You! Option number 2 was temping, in fact I was going to take it, until option number 3 came along. Then when opton number 4 came along, option number 2 was no longer so tempting. So I turned it down too. It was between a transfer to a bigger and better property and a promotion in a temporary position.

I wish I had the gift of seeing through b.s. Damian has that gift. From the first offer, he was able to see through the circumstances and say...don't get excited, I don't trust them. He continued to say this with each offer...and felt stronger each time. He was right. Apparently these offers where offered to more than one person, and when this was realized rather than choosing they decided to given the promotion & transfer to no one & hire outside the company. I think this is shady!

So in doing so, they have stolen my joy. I will no longer sweat blood and tears for them. I will continue to be a loyal employee. I will do my job, but what I will not do is allow it to take the number one spot again. Maybe this was the awakening I needed. Such is life...and life goes on.

I Really Hate Being Alone
Damian went back to Texas today. He has lots of work to do & can make some pretty good money over the next 6 to 8 weeks. So it really is a good thing he is there, but gosh I hate him being there! I like him HERE. I like coming home & having family dinners. I like watching Discovery Channel with him even though I really don't like watching Discovery Channel. I like cooking for him, even though I don't like cooking. Wait...okay, so really I guess I just like being with him...still not a fan of all that other crap!

Seriously though, I sleep better at night just knowing he is here. He doesn't sleep in my bed or even in my room, but just knowing he is in my house helps. I like being able to count on him to help me out...He does the dishes...now who's going to do them?

Most of all I just hate being alone....It's very lonely. (profound, I know)

I don't know
Saturday, July 21, 2007
I could quite possibly be the most indecisive person you know. For instance...

You: "Where do you want to go eat?"
Me: "I don't know. What do you think?"

You: "Do you want to see a movie?"
Me: "I don't know...I guess, maybe."
You: "What do you want to see?"
Me: "I don't know."

Part of the issue, is that I am truly a laid back person, and I really don't care. Generally I will speak up if I really have an opinion on the issue. I often just don't care to have an opinion.

The problem comes when I can't make up my mind on things I really should have an opinion on. For instance...kids. At the age of 27 shouldn't I know whether I really want to have more kids. I have Madison, who is almost 9. So...do I really want to start over? Some days I want to to have another child and other days I am DONE! So if one was how I felt most of the time and the other was how I feel every once in a while I guess that would be okay. Problem is, it is 50-50.

I'm not sure Madi can handle a brother or sister. She gets territorial with Damian and I, and quite honestly she is the stereotypical only child...she is a brat. Of course, not all the time, but definitely around other children biding for my time or for her toys.

I'm not sure I can handle another child. My patience is not what it was 9 years ago. I like my sleep! And though my body isn't what I want it to be, pregnancy is not a step in the right direction. I like my job; I like working; and I like focusing on my career.

On the other hand Madi begs for a brother or sister. She loves her baby cousins and is a huge help with them. I would love to have Damian's children and I miss having a baby. I think pregnant women are cute and I want to experience enjoying my pregnancy.

So I guess for now my answer is "I DON'T KNOW" but definitely "NOT RIGHT NOW!"

Writer's Block
Friday, July 20, 2007
Is it a bad sign to have writer's block on your first post? Hmm? So what is slightly more sad than having writer's block on your first post? The fact that it is Friday night at 10 min til 8:00 p.m., Madison is at her grandparents and I'm sitting here blogging. Yep, that is officially SAD! In my defense Damian is laying on the couch watching football reruns! Um, really you already know who wins! Well, I'm going to go now...maybe Damian will take me to dinner....I'm thinking Krystal! :)
