fearless: (As One)

I had originally anticipated having the new site up on New Year’s Day, however due to unforeseen consequences, that didn’t happen. In any event, welcome to the new website! Not a whole lot has changed from my prior site, but I feel this site in its entirety is completely me. WishfulDrinking.Org was me for a time, however last year was a year I spent regaining all that I had lost in 2008 and rebuilding a marriage that had come close to being destroyed. It wasn’t easy and it was definitely a lot of work, but it was well worth it. I am grateful for the man I have in my life. He is what keeps me going and the person who picks me up when I fall. I love him so much.

Solstice was pretty mellow. It was just Robby and I this year, however it was nice. We haven’t really had a Solstice with gift giving, but this year I went all out to make sure we were able to. I got Robby a few presents that he adored and I bought myself a ton of DVDs. I know it’s strange that I purchased my own presents but I despise surprises and Robby isn’t the greatest with gift giving, lol. He takes things a little bit too seriously. It’s cute though. This year for Solstice I received:

From my mother-in-law:
-$100 check

From my grandma-in-law

All in all, I feel like I came out on top. I got a lot of DVDs that I needed and they were all for a great price… plus a Wii, which admittedly I haven’t played in awhile but that’s due to the fact that I have been working some crazy, crazy hours. Robby and I talked and both agreed that we want to pay of our credit cards prior to having kids so I’m on a mission to pay them off by next year. It’s going to be hard but I think we can do it if we budget correctly and start utilizing coupons when we shop. I’m also considering picking up a second job at the Walmart down the street. It probably means I won’t be around as often, but if it gets us closer to being debt free credit card wise then it will be worth it. I doubt Robby will look at it that way though. =( Oh well, you have to do what you have to do.

School started up this Monday and I have another week to go before I finish this class, but I am starting up the IT class I ended up dropping next week. I’m hoping if I only have that class to focus on I’ll do better then I did before. I think for the most part I have a better footing then those who are just taking it for the first time, but I’m still going to try and get in touch with my instructor for extra help, etc. I hope I’m able to pull a good grade this time around. We’ll have to see though.

We’ll I’m off to watch some TV and get some sleep. I haven’t been sleeping well lately so I’m trying to catch up on as much as possible. We’ll see how that pans out though– I’m not thinking so well.
