A really long, overdue update.

I guess I just haven't been feeling like writing. I have lots of things to say, to reflect on, but It just all feels like too much. or like I shouldn't be writing something as 'trivial' as a blog, when there are much more 'important' things to do.

Well, Since I last wrote, I've graduated college(Just shy of with honors- 3.42 GPA, how you taunt me), seen my cousin and brother-in-law get married, "moved" to Ft. Bragg(More on that later), and spent time at my parents house.

Graduation was great/weird. I still can't believe it's over. I told a friend of mine that it didn't feel like it had been 4 years. She asked if I just didn't feel like I had lived every minute of it--I did/do feel that I have. But at the same time, I feel like those four years were on hyper speed. I thank my University for all it provided for me,  all the learning, growth, and love that happened there. I don't regret one moment of my college experience.

The weddings were great. I'm so happy for both couples, and for them to both have some time to just relish in being a couple. I know my cousin has trainings to report to soon, and so I can kind of feel my cousin-in-law's pain. I can't wait for them to come out here. I think she'll like it a lot. (My cousin won't care too much). My BIL and SIL went on a honeymoon to Disney. So jealous--and it's so perfect for them. Weddings are funny things--I didn't cry at either, and I'm typically an emotional person. I did cry for a minute at my cousin's-they played the closest thing that C and I have to a song and he sang it while we danced. Hi, I'm a nutjob.

And after my cousin's wedding, we drove to NC. C spent all day yesterday inprocessing, and it looks like today will be more of the same. We still don't know when he's leaving, but I suppose I have him at least till Thursday--that's when his appointment with CIF is.  I'm hoping for sooner rather than later. Too much later and I have to make really uncomfortable decisions. According to the Army, I live here. However, once C leaves I'm moving back with my parents until a house is ready. It's very possible that we will be making an offer by the end of this week-scary and exhilirating all at once! I really hope this goes through--other than some major wallpaper renovations, this house is a blank canvas for us! and it's big enough,without being obnoxious or too expensive.

Fingers crossed that this all works out like we'd like it to!

    "I shouldn't be writing something as 'trivial' as a blog, when there are much more 'important' things to do."
    question: who said blogs are trivial? a blog is the next best thing to a column in a periodical or your own talk show.

    sometimes you have to take a break from the "important" things in order to process them.

    i love you very much.
    i'm glad i'll see you soon.
    maybe i won't be such a wreck at that time.
