The Holiday

Have you ever seen this movie? It is ridiculous and super duper chick flicky and I LOVE IT!

Things learned from The Holiday:

  • I want little children who have British accents. It's adorable!
  • House Exchange -- it seems to be an incredibly cool thing to look into in the future (maybe a bit on the crazy/scary side but still cool)
  • If in London and a drunk guy comes knocking on your door in the middle of the night -- let him in and have your way with him! Do it!! It can only lead to long lasting love -- seriously. (To prove my point: 
  • Befriend the old guy next door -- he could be famous and incredibly interesting.
  • I need to try to be the "leading lady" in my own life (here's the cheesy, chick-flicky-ness of the movie coming through).
Anyway, sorry I haven't been around the blog world much.  I am in the middle of taking classes for and preparing to take a section of the CPA exam PLUS I'm ultra-mega busy at work. *boo*

Wonderful Weekend...

This weekend allowed me peace and a lot of thoughtful moments to myself. The Arizona campgrounds are absolutely gorgeous. There has been a few little rain showers and the smell of the pines is amazing. The folks up here are starting to learn my name and welcome me into their "family".

There are a few things I've learned about myself and my life since being up here.

1. I need and crave meaningful conversations in my day to day life.
2. I'm probably, eventually, one day going to live in the mountains.
3. Sometimes all most folks really need is for someone to listen to them.
4. My eyes are MUCH bluer when I'm in a good mood and having an amazing time.
5. I really do have some amazing friends already out here in Arizona.

Thank you for the weekend Arizona and Arizona friends. Now back to the real world.

I should be packing...

So I have another 3 day weekend coming up starting tomorrow! I am driving up to Prescott with a guy from church for a church reunion in the mountains. This will be my first time to do reunion with the Arizona group. I am a bit sad because I know New Mexico reunion is going on right now as well and I could have drove out there to see a certain friend who I have been missing a lot - however, I know I will have a great time up north and it will be good for me to get to know more about each of the folks I go to church with out here.

I finally got in to see the neurologist today. He said I have pseudotumor cerebri and he has started me on a series of tests to hopefully find what is causing it. In a nutshell - I have symptoms of a brain tumor - without actually having the brain tumor. So I am guessing I will be seeing a lot of this doc here pretty least he gave me medicine for the headaches. Maybe life can go back to semi-normal. He also thinks I may have a bit of sleep apnea but we are going to rule out some of the other potential causes for the disease before addressing that.

Anyway, that's the life update. Enjoy your weekend blog friends - I know I will be enjoying mine :D

You're special...

Have you ever heard a song and became completely entwined in it? A song that shakes you to the core by how true it resonates in your soul?

This came up out of the blue - but I literally feel this song when it comes on my Zune. It gives me the chills each and every time I hear it. I know who it is about for me. I am perfectly content in the life I have currently and I am absolutely in love with S -- however, memories are strong in me and I admit - I miss him and the connection we once had.

P.S. I love you Adele. You rock so hard.
