Life is good

It has been so long since I have posted on here but I have had a few requests for an update and for me to start blogging again (not making any promises there), I figured a blog post was better than nothing!  A lot has gone on in the last few months.....a lot!!  Where to start?

Let's start with my schooling....Thursday was the last day of my summer semester and the end of my fourth semester in school!!  I can't believe I have finished a whole year worth of schooling already...I feel like I just started!  I have one more semester and then I will be done with my associates in, I graduate in December!!  I am applying to go to East Carolina University in January and I plan to get my Bachelors Degree through them as well as my Masters.  School is a lot of fun, it's hard work but definitely worth it.

Now the boys, my boys are doing great!  Tyrique and Markus have been gone the whole summer and won't be back for another week and a half.  I miss them so much but they are having a blast!  Tyrique has grown about 7 feet in the last year...uh, I mean, a foot or so....he is 6 feet 3 inches!!!!  My baby boy has almost a whole foot on his Mamma!!  Markus is almost as tall as I am...or was when he left, he may be as tall as I am by now!  They won't stop growing, how are they gonna stay my babies forever if they keep growing?  Kobe didn't go anywhere this summer, he has spent it here with his Mamma.  He is starting kindergarten in the in, I will have one in elementary, one in middle and one in high school!!!  Kobe went to Kindergarten Academy this summer and did great.  He is so excited to start school.

Now on for our big news....we always have some sort of big news!  We have decided to move again (shocker huh!)!!  We live about an hour or so away from Virginia Beach right now and really miss living in Virginia Beach so we have decided to move back there.  The place where we live now is very small and it is very limited in regards to things to do.  We drive to Virginia at least once a week to do something and with all this driving back and forth, we may as well live where we love being!  We found a place right by where we used to live so the boys are going to be going back to their old school district and have friends that still live in the area.  We are all really excited and feel like we are going home!!  We never really felt like we fit in here or like we were home!  Now we are yet again moving....I know, we move a lot!  Hopefully this will be the last time for a while but who knows what life has in store for us.  The one lesson that I have learned in the last two years is that I should have just gone back to VA Beach when I got my divorce....except, maybe I shouldn't have because then I wouldn't have gotten to spend the year with my family in Iceland, wouldn't have met the people I know now and maybe wouldn't have gone to school!?!?!  No, things happen for a reason and I feel blessed with what I have right now.   We are doing good and are all healthy and happy and that is all that matters in that end :)

I wanted to tell you guys one thing...I have been re-doing furniture the last month and I plan to write a blog post or two about that one fine day (maybe after the move) and show you guys the pictures.  I am totally loving re-doing furniture....who would have thought it would be so much fun!?!?!

I hope you are all doing good!  I have been reading your blogs, I suck at commenting kinda limits my online activities.  Hope you all have a great weekend!

Five Question Friday

Wow, it has been so long since I have posted that blogger has changed everything around....wonder if I even know how to do this anymore :)

I decided to join in on 5QF since it is fun and easy and doesn't require much thinking...I do too much of that when it comes to school lol

If you want to join Mama M for 5QF just press right over here.  Have fun!

1. How often do you shave your legs in the winter?

Not as often as I should, I would say about once to three times a week....that's a lot compared to last winter lol

2. Valentine's Day cards for your spouse: funny or romantic?

I don't have a spouse but if I was getting one I would probably go for romantic and funny...two cards never hurt no one :)

3. What are you most looking forward to about spring?

I am looking forward to May, I finish this semester in May and then I start my last semester at this school before I will have my associates degree and move onto get my bachelors degree.  This winter has been rough in school as I am taking so many credits trying to graduate in one year with my associates and this summer is going to be my last crazy semester but it will be nothing like this semester right now.  I am taking 23 credits and my classes are rather overwhelming right now which sucks....plain out sucks :(  It's okay though, I just need to work harder and I will pull through this just like I did last semester :)

4. What's your favorite way to pamper yourself?

By getting a pedicure and getting my hair done.  I love having pretty toes and try to keep them pretty at all times and getting my hair done needs to be more of a priority too.  I am going to get a hot stone massage soon that I got for my birthday...I'm really looking forward to that :)

5. Does your tax return go into savings or do you spend it instantly?

This year I am not receiving any money back but if I was it would be going straight towards bills and maybe to pay for a trip home to Iceland next Christmas.  I am really homesick right now because I just became an Auntie two weeks ago to a beautiful little boy and I want to go home and smother him with kisses and love but since I can't do that I am just going broke buying him clothes and toys :)
