So, life here has been a little down. My daughter informed me that she's pregnant and while I am happy for her, I wish she were married and better yet that I liked her boyfriend. I fear for her and my grandchild because he is a controlling jerk. It hurts me to know how her life is going to go and be powerless to help her.
My hubby was furloughed. The joys of federal employment. It really irritates me the state this country is in and it makes me mad that the common hard worker is getting penalized for it while the fat cats on Capital Hill continue to get their paychecks. I just hope these people get back to work soon.
The wedding is still on, but my son and his fiance never tell me anything so I'm just going to show up and hope all the plans were made.
Classes are going well. I am happy that it's midterms and soon I'll be finished! Yea!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! It's going to be a pretty quiet one here! I have homework to accomplish and I have some papers to write.

I know it's been a while since I posted. I have been so super busy with teaching and school but I am loving it. I love my students and I love furthering my education.
My son and his fiance' have finally set the official wedding date! They will be getting married on October 31 at 4:30. I can't believe my baby boy is getting married. But, I really do love his fiance'. She has been good for him and I think he for her.
Weight loss is still going pretty steady. I have been walking about two hours a day and have never felt better. I've been taking advantage of the good weather to get out and enjoy the nature around me. Pretty soon, we'll be covered in that freezing white stuff. LOL
I sure hope this month has been good to you all and that this coming month will be full of blessings!

So I had to take an impromptu road trip to St. George this weekend for a funeral. A friend of mine was out riding his bike training for a triathlon and was struck by a car. He was only 36 years old and the father of four little ones. This man was a big guy and was told that he needed to lose some weight. So he started training for triathlons. He participated in over 55 in the last three years and finally won the Ironman this summer. He lived his life to the fullest, chasing his dreams, and reached his goals. We could learn a lot from this guy.
Braydon's death was shocking. He was a bubbly, vivacious, person. He will be greatly missed. This whole experience has just reaffirmed my belief that life is so precious and that we should cherish every moment we have. Braydon did that! So, as I go about the sad affairs of this day, I leave you with this cheer, from the immortal words of Braydon Nielsen - "BOOYAH!"

I just love September! I have no idea why this is my favorite month, it just is. I love it! Maybe it's because the air is crisper and cooler; maybe it's because the earth is splashed with beautiful, vibrant color; maybe it's because my favorite sport of the entire year starts, yea football! It just fills me with so much hope! I love it!
I hope that you all are having a great week! I know I may not get to visit you all as often as I'd like, but I do think about you. I thank you for your posts and comments and your spark goodies! I want you to know that each of you have made an influence on my life and I wish each of you the very best! I will try and get out this weekend to visit you all!
I hope you have a wonderful week and a fabulous weekend!
