Fall is my favorite . . .

I love Fall . . . it is my favorite season as far as the 4 seasons go.  Christmas is my favorite season but you know what I mean.  I love the coziness of Fall - except right now it's warm.  I love the smells of caramel, pumpkin, vanilla at this time of year.  I went and spent $40 at Bath & Body works on wall-flowers of warm vanilla caramel and creamy pumpkin soap. 

I've been busy.  Last week we were in Florida which was a lot of fun.  I went to West Palm Beach with my parents, my brother, sister-in-law, and my nephews (Conner and Colin).  It was great because we flew as opposed to a 20 hour drive one way and overall we had great weather.  Most of our time was spent on the beach or by the pool with a tiny bit of sight-seeing one day we were there.  Then I came back to work this week and everybody else was on vacation so I wanted another week off. :)

Our revival starts at the end of the month so there is that to prepare for and then the holidays are truly right around the corner.  Hope that everyone is doing well . . .more soon.

Shirley and Marcy

Shirley & Marcy

A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe. So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a  neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her. She said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed. The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor  girl he knew. She did this for the whole week. As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week.

 Finally she said to Timmy, 'Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?'

 Timmy nonchalantly replied, 'Yeah, I know who she is.'

 The little girl said, 'Well, who is she?'

 'That's just Shirley Goodnest,' Timmy replied, 'and her daughter Marcy.'

 'Shirley Goodnest? Who the heck is she and why is she  following us?

 'Well,' Timmy explained, 'every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd
 Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, 'Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get
 used to it!'

 The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to  shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always. I know you smiled!

 I sure did, pass this on and brighten someone's day.

Such a girl . . .

Okay so a friend of mine from Church who was also my roommate for two and a half years is getting married today.  She is 10 years younger than me, skinny as a rail, and no doubt will be GORGEOUS!! So, my almost 33 year old body (which can't compete) has been trying to find something to wear for the wedding.  I have dresses that I wear to work and Church but I wanted something new.  I've looked and fretted and looked some more.  Now it is the day of the wedding and there is less than six hours until it starts.  I have yet to find something that I think will be trendy.  Now why is it that it drives me crazy to look at my closet and think that among her 20 something friends that I will look dowdy? NUTS!  I look at my closet and think that's to long, to plain, to something.  Then I go to the stores and I think that's to short, to revealing, to young.  ARGH!!! Does anybody else feel that way about going to events where other women will be?  I know that I will get dressed in something from my closet since the clock is counting down and I will think that I look pretty good and then I'll get there and feel like Ms. Thirty-something among all of the skinny, tan, cute dressed college girls.  Whatever!!!   Sigh, I'm such a girl.

Baby Ann Elizabeth (Annie)

Okay so the day is finally here . . . Ann Elizabeth Parsley is here!! She was born today at 12:52 p.m. weighing 7lbs 8oz and 19 inches long.  She has a TON of black hair and looks just like Noah and Lilly Grace did.  Jessica and Annie are both doing great!  I am so thankful that God has blessed our family with another healthy baby.  God is so good.

My new place . . .

So I officially moved in to my new place two weeks ago today.  It's an apartment but I don't care, I'm not ready financially to buy a house.  I remember the anxiety that I felt buying a brand new car several years ago and I'm just not ready to buy a house on my own yet.  Anyway, I have lived with a roommate the past 3 1/2 years and though it had its positives there is nothing quite like having my own place again.  I LOVE it, it's quiet where I live, and very close to the office so I can go home at lunch and also sleep a little bit later. 

Other than that I really have nothing new to share except now the number of expectant friends/family that I have has dropped to five instead of seven which was the number at the beginning of Spring.  It's fun and I love it and can't wait to meet each of the new babies.  I also love buying for them and spoiling them and then going home to my quiet new apartment =). 

We have been very busy at work this month and for that I am thankful.  In these trying economic times, I'm glad to have a job period but having a job that I love with a great group of people is awesome.

Hope you are all having a GREAT Summer.

Iphone User

Okay so I used to get annoyed with Iphone users.  My friends that had one long before me seemed to always be playing with their phones and sometimes when I was talking to them they weren't always paying attention to what I was saying.  On January 8th I became an "Iphone head".  I LOVE my phone, love all the apps, and love how it helps to pass the time oh and it makes me feel cool. =) Well, about two weeks ago I started having problems with it so I purchased the Apple Care Plan and was able to get a "new" phone sent to me overnight.  I got it this past Monday and followed all of the instructions to back up and restore the "new" phone to have the apps, pics, etc.  I was happy until about Wednesday when I realized that the "silent" button has a glitch.  I use silent quite a bit especially at work.  I had it on silent and at my desk and all of a sudden I heard the tone that let me know that I have a text msg.  UGH!  So now this phone is not working properly.  I call Apple Iphone Support and am told that the phones that they send out are "slightly refurbished".  GREAT!  Okay so probably down deep inside I knew that but I really don't want to go through this process all over again.  Looks like my options are: mail my phone back and wait for another one which would mean that I'd have to go back to using my Blackjack for a while, or drive to an Apple Store (closest is Greenhills),  or they will put a $500 hold on a credit/debit card and overnight me one again.  ARGH!!!! What to do?  I can't decide.  Who's up for a trip to Greenhills?

My Nephews


Thursday, June 10, 2010

There's a first time for everything . . .

Okay so I was off from work all last week and I loved it!  I really didn't have a schedule at all and I just did whatever I wanted to but honestly the week flew by.  I had lunch with a friend that I hadn't seen for a while.  Mostly, I spent time with my best friend (Sarah) who was 9 months pregnant, helping her get ready for baby #5.  Yes I said #5.  So anyway I just knew that since her due date was June 13th and that this is her 5th baby that my week off would surely be when she would go.  So I waited and waited and waited . . . every time she called (if we weren't together) I just knew that it was "the call."  Sunday night came and still no baby.  So, she goes to the Doctor on Tuesday and decided to schedule to be induced yesterday.  I took the day off so I could be there.  So . . . we were sitting back in L&D and she had gotten her epidural, the contractions were off the charts but she was happy as could be.  At some point the nurse was in there and Sarah asked how many people could be in there during delivery.  The nurse answered three and Sarah looked at me and said "Do you want to stay?" I was surprised, excited, nervous, and honored.  Her Mom is always in there and ofcourse her hubby and then me this time.  I have to say that I expected more drama but due to the epidural (I guess) she didn't make a peep, it was all very calm and quiet.  They broke her water at 8:45 a.m. and Miss Amelia Josephine Boucher made her appearance at 10:45 a.m.  I cried!! It was so sweet.  If I knew how to post pics on this blog I would do it and show you this big baby girl, she weighed 9lbs. 13oz. and is 21 inches long.  Maybe I'll figure out the picture thing one day . . .

All for now.

Single and Frustrated

Okay so let me start by saying that this is a venting post.  I know by reading other people's posts that a blog is often used to vent. (i.e. Jessica's Wal-mart trip)  So, today I am venting about being single.  Since most of you all are married, I'm sure that at one point you felt some of these feelings, maybe not.  My first gripe is this, how is it that some women (girls) always have a boyfriend?  They go from one right on to another.  It seems that there is a constant flow of men for them.  Now yes I know that most likely those men aren't worth keeping or she isn't worth having.  My second gripe, how hard is it to be honest?  Seriously, I won't kill over and die if you tell me that you aren't interested.  I hate to be lied to, just tell me the DANG truth.  Thirdly, I go through the "what's wrong with me?" list.  Am I to fat, un-attractive, boring, etc.  Then if by chance I do meet someone, he almost always has baggage (i.e. an ex-wife, children, both)  It never fails  . . . okay so on the other hand I know that I would rather be single than in a horrible marriage.  I see women all of the time that are trapped with a husband and sometimes children and have no way out.  Whenever I talk about this issue with my married friends, they all say to just take my time and be patient.  Well, let me just tell ya this.  My gift is not patience, I hate that it's not b/c I can see where that would be extremely useful in many of lifes lessons.  Okay, so I know that this issue is small beans in comparison to many problems that I read about on blogs or in the news but I wanted to share because it makes me feel better to vent.  One last example for your entertainment.  I have been "talking" to this guy off and on for a few months.  I like him but something (probably my woman's intuition) told me that things were a bit off.  So I get up the nerve to ask him and he says that he's "kind of" dating someone!!! What?!!? How can you be "kind of" dating someone and not bother to mention it? Seriously!  ARGH!!

Fridays Off

So starting today I have every other Friday off.  Yay!  It may just be temporary but for now I am really excited.  I have plans to visit with friends, new babies, sleep in, shop, mani/pedi's, etc.  Now, realistically I know that there will be Fridays that I'll need (or want) to stay home all day but going into Summer and having a three day weekend every other week is a sweet thing!  I have several pregnant friends that are due to deliver in the next few months so I've got thoughts of visits with new babies running around in my head.  Today,  I am spending time with my nephews.  Right now they are both napping so I'm taking time to update my blog since it has been almost 3 weeks.  As soon as I can figure out how to load pics of them on here I will.  I tried to do one the other day but it was really big.  Feel free to email me at with tips. 

Not much else is going on right now, no major love story to share with you or anything.  Also feel free to hook me up with a nice single man if you feel compelled to do so. =)

All for now, take care.

Saturday, April 17, 2010


Well, it's been a pretty good week.  I work with 13 other women and though I love my job, from time to time the hormones take over and we lose our grip.  For the most part we hold it all together but from time to time we get short-tempered, jealous, tired, stressed etc.  This week was a bit dramatic at times but I think it's okay now.  Friday was a great day at work, we are all blessed to have a great job and we know it (or most of us do.) 

Yesterday after work I got my  hair cut and highlighted (whew, it was getting so heavy).  I felt like I lost 5 pounds when I got finished.  Now in reality, she didn't really cut a ton of my hair but my hair is VERY thick (thank goodness) and she thinned it.  The bright blonde looks good since we are going into May soon (if I do say so myself.)  After that we ate at Smokey Bones. 

I didn't really have any plans for today so I just did whatever.  This morning I got up and went out to Mom and John's for a while, then I came home and cleaned the house.  I hate cleaning (who loves it really?) but it took me no time at all and then it's done for a while.  After that I made a quick trip to Kroger then read some of my book.  This afternoon I spent some time with my friend Sarah and we had fun catching up.  Then this evening I met Mom, John, Nick, Brooke, and the boys at Covington Park where we had a "KFC picnic" and watched Conner play.  So now it's 7:30 and I'm thinking about a bath and pj's.  Awww, the single life, it's a party!

To any and/or all that are interested, I am having a Premier Designs jewelry party on Friday, April 23rd at 6:30.  It is at my office which is over behind the mall.  Please feel free to stop by or contact me to order.

Hope you all have a good week.


Saturday, April 10, 2010


Okay so I know that this post may sound pathetic but I can't use my Iphone right now and it's driving me nuts!  Let me tell the entire story first . . . Today I woke up to a phone call about 7:30 a.m. and it was my precious nephew Conner.  "Bef, do you wanna doe (go) to the zoo wif (with) me?"  Aww, heart melting!  So, we (Nick, Brooke, Conner, Colin, Mom, John, & I) head to the Louisville Zoo.  It was a beautiful day and we had SO much fun. We got to Louisville around 12:30 our time and after getting a bit turned around (b/c Nick didn't need to stop for directions) we made it to the zoo around 1:00.  There was a very long line but it moved fast.  We stayed until they closed and saw just about everything there was to see except the elephants, by the time we got to them I guess they were tired and had gone inside their building.  So, we get back in the vehicle heading to Elizabethtown to eat and all of a sudden my Iphone locks up.  It wouldn't do anything so I tried to turn it off, wouldn't do that either.  To shorten the story a bit I ended up pulling the sim card out accidently and it dropped into the floor of Nick's pathfinder.  Now, me and Conner were in the third row back seat and it fell back there.  We finally got to Elizabethtown and stopped at Tumbleweed for supper and I just knew that we would find the card.  NOPE!  We looked everywhere, under the seats, behind the seats, even in the front where it could not have gotten to unless it sprouted legs.  We looked and looked and looked some more.  Okay, so I guess that somehow it has broken free of the vehicle =)  I was so upset . . . b/c I thought I lost all of my contact #'s, pictures, etc.  We got inside the restaurant and sat down and I started crying.  PATHETIC!  Nick was like "You are crazy! Crying over a sim card." That made me cry harder.  Now, seriously I know that is stupid but I'm chalking it up to tiredness  =)  So after we ordered our food, I used John's phone and called Apple.  The little guy that answered the phone told me how to reset it and gave me the good news that with an Iphone absolutely nothing is on the sim card.  All of my contacts and pictures etc. are still there.  I just can't use it right now for calls or texts.  Luckily our At&t store here in BG is open on Sundays so I will definitely be there tomorrow after Sunday School.  See . . .  I told you that it was pathetic.  Again, we had a great day at the Zoo and it felt really good to experience that with the boys and eventhough Colin doesn't remember it is still a special memory.  Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Warm weather and Easter

I love this weather!  The weekend was perfect!  It was just the right temperature outside.  Friday night we went out to eat to celebrate my sis-in-law's birthday which is tomorrow.  At dinner Mom started getting sick with the stomach virus, poor thing.  She took care of the sick all week so I guess it was inevitable.  Anyway, yesterday I just spent the day out and about whatever I wanted.  Actually I spent almost 3 hours at the nail place getting my nails and toes done.  I keep my nails done and this time of year my toes too but what in the world possessed me to wait until Saturday (the day before Easter) to go and do it.  It was worth it though because they look great!  We had Church last night and it was a good service. Today was great too!  It seems like it has been so long since we had beautiful weather on Easter Sunday.  We had Sunday School, then Church, and then the egg hunt.  It's so fun to see the kids all dressed up.  The service was great and I'm so thankful that God is blessing us at Jock.  I have to admit that I was a bit said because usually we have dinner at Mamaw and Papaw's after Church on Easter but with Tommy in the hospital and then everybody going their different ways we ended up eating at Cheddar's.  It was still a nice lunch and it gave me more time to see my sweet nephews who are growing like weeds.  Colin will be 4 months old on Friday.  This afternoon I drove back up to Ed. Co. to visit Trav, Jess, Noah, and Lilly Grace.  I had a good time visiting and watching the kids play, fight, etc.  I can't wait until Annie (Ann Elizabeth) who is being named partially after yours truly gets here to join the crew.  Okay well I've gone on and on long enough.  Time for bed.  Hope you all have a GREAT week.

**** The Stomach Bug ****

Hello Girls!  First of all, let me say that John's surprise party was great!  It all went off without a hitch and he was truly surprised!  It was a lot of FUN and there was a good crowd, lots of food, and great memories made. 

On to a sadder story, the Cats lost!  I was heartbroken and still am.  I am so sad for them and am hoping that for some CRAZY reason that Wall and Cousins and whoever else will turn down their mult-million NBA offers for another year at UK.  Fingers crossed. 

Now an even sadder story, the stomach bug. Yikes! It's awful!  All of us know that it creeps up on you like a dang thief in the night.  I had talked to Jess and knew that Lil was sick at the beginning of last week and that poor Trav had it on Friday and I have heard of several others having it but still you think I'm fine, not me.  WRONG! The weekend was great, except for the Cats =( and then Sunday we had a birthday dinner for Lola and it went down hill from there.  Sunday evening, night, and all day Monday I was down for the count.  I found myself praying to the porcelain god to please let it end or let me die.  Now, I hope that God didn't take my sacrilege seriously and knew that I was only praying like that because I was almost out of my mind.  I went back to work today and I am pretty sure that I'm on the mend other than just feeling tired and a bit weak.

Hope that you all have a really good week . . . oh and in case you are wondering (surely you are) I found an Easter dress.  Yep, got it at Macy's this past Saturday and eventhough I tried to find a nice Spring color it is black and white.  Oh well . . . why mess with a good thing? 

Take care.

Time to PARTY . . .

Yay!! The day has finally arrived . . . after a month of planning and keeping secrets and telling little "white lies", today is my stepdad (John's) 50th birthday!!  I am so excited to see it all come together, his family from Eastern  KY is driving down and he has no idea, he only gets to see them once every couple of months or so and sometimes the visits are short so it will be neat.  Mom has made a couple of slip ups but it's hard not to when you are not a professional liar which she is definitely NOT.  So, I'll let you know tomorrow how it all works out . . . Can't wait!

Nothing else to report really, except to say GO BIG BLUE!!

Teeth, dogs, and work oh my . . .

Okay so I work for the BEST Dentist(s) anywhere!  No, really I do.  I have had a problem with one of my teeth and I had a Root Canal and a Crown in '08, a re-treat Root Canal in '09 and now that same tooth has fractured.  The problem is not because of anything that was done by Dr. Jackson it just happened.  So, today I went to the office and had the pesky thing pulled.  Now, I have to wait three months to have an implant placed and then 5 months to have an implant crown put on it.  So . . . no big deal.  I have never been afraid or had problems at the Dentist (lucky me).  I know that the fear and dread is normal for A LOT of people and again I work for the BEST so we take great care of patients.  I get my tooth pulled, no big deal.  I go by Steak 'n Shake and get a milk-shake since my diet has to be soft today.  I go home to "rest" before I have to be back at work at 1:00, but as soon as I get home I realize that there is a problem.  My roommate has a dog, a fairly big dog.  He stays in the bathroom that it's in her bedroom while we are gone.  Now since it is about 10:00 I know that there shouldn't be any water running because Jenny and Grace (her little girl) are gone.  I go down the hall and into her bedroom and there is water running out from under the bathroom door.  I panic!  I open the door and Hank (the dog) is soaking wet and the line that runs from the toilet to the wall is spraying and I mean spraying water EVERYWHERE!  Did I mention that I am have started to panic??  Now keep in mind that I am  numb and have gauze in my mouth.  I put Hank in his crate and call my Stepdad to see what to do.  He calmly asks, "Did you turn the water off?"  Now why didn't I think of that?  So I put my Iphone down far away from the water and reach over behind the toilet (getting soaked the whole time) and turn the valve off.  Crisis sort of averted.  So, I tell my Stepdad thanks and get off the phone.  I clean up water and more water and more water . . . start a load of wet towels and rugs and oh yeah eat part of my milkshake.  Now do I get to rest?? Nope, not quite.  I have to update my blog! =)  Anyway, the numbness is starting to go away and I have taken my Tylenol/Advil cocktail so maybe I can rest just a bit before going in to work.  Thank goodness we don't have any patients in the office tomorrow, I need to take it easy.  Hope you all are doing well. 

Love ya,

This and that . . .

Ahh  . . . a lazy Sunday.  Today, we only had Sunday School at Jock so after service I came back to BG.  It's cool and rainy and the CATS are playing.  I decided to stop and grab a DiGiorno frozen pizza and head home.  Okay so I'm not a sports fanatic but this season I am a Kentucky Wildcat fanatic!  I have my UK shirt on for every game these days.  During close games I have to be doing something else though so I can go in and out of the room that the TV is in =)  Makes me nervous. 

So, just a few things that I'm trying to plan for are . . . my stepdad's 50th birthday party (it's a SURPRISE).  My dilemma is this, we are having it at South Edmonson on his actual birthday (March 26th) but I don't know what little "white lie" to use to get him there.  Since they live here in BG what is a reason for him to go to Edmonson County on his birthday?  So, I figured we would just say that we are going to fix dinner at Nick and Brooke's house but that is still not going by the school.  Hmmm . . . any ideas girls?  If so, please share.  My next thing that I am trying to plan for is an Easter dress.  We actually have Church at Jock this time so I'm definitely buying something new.  I know that most of you feel my pain when I say that it isn't easy or cheap to dress shop.  I have got to get on the job though because we are now three short weeks away and I have been to look once.  I want a kelly green dress, silver jewelry, and camel color pumps.  Hmm should be easy to find - lol!

Well, you all have a good week.  See ya on Facebook or blogville. (smile)

A day off . . .

Okay so I know that most people enjoy a day off. I am trying to save my vacation days for the Summer and also a trip to the beach at the end of September. However, I have accrued some overtime hours and we don't get paid for those hours but we can use them as time off. So, I found out last week that I had almost 8 hours to use and immediately scheduled a day off. Now, you might find it odd that I took a Wednesday off and I admit that it was a bit off an odd choice but I have loved it!!! I stayed in bed until 8:30 (which is late for me since I'm always up by 6:30 during the week). Then I got up and went to the tanning bed, now don't anybody even bother to comment about how I'm going to get skin cancer. I go to Express Tan and I spend my hard earned money on the best beds which are supposedly a tad safer plus I don't tan all year but I can't stand the pastiness anymore. Then I got a couple of doughnuts from GADS and came home. I burnt a CD, talked to Jess on the phone, did laundry, cleaned the house a little bit, got a shower, took my time doing a light makeup application, and fixed my hair. I then went to the grocery to get stuff for dinner tonight. I love it, love it, love it! Now all I need is to find a somewhat rich, single, man to marry me so I can stay home every day. No, I'm teasing. I'll just start wracking up some more overtime hours and plan to take another midweek day off. I'm excited because two more days and it's the weekend.

Hope you all are having a great week!
Love ya,

The weekend . . .

Okay so I didn't do anything extravagant but I had a good weekend.  Friday night I went to El Mazatlan with some friends from work.  We had a blast just talking and laughing for three and a half hours.  I'm pretty sure the staff thought we were going to bring out pillows and blankets and spend the night.  Saturday, I got up early and headed to Lexington.  I rode up with my brother (Nick) and sister-in-law Brooke.  It was beautiful and the sun was so nice to see so the trip up and back was nice.  We got to visit (quickly) with John's family for a while and then we went over to Rupp Arena and got some UK paraphenelia.  Conner got to go inside and see some of the "big trucks" for a truck pull that was going to be held that night.  Actually, what happened was that Nick and John talked a security guard into letting them in so that "Conner could see inside Rupp Arena."  Now that is funny!  Anyway, we came back home and watched the UK game and screamed at the TV like a bunch of idiots!  Then today we had Church and it was a great service!  Good weekend, but I think I am coming down with something . . . SPRING FEVER!

Valentine's Eve

Hello friends!  So, it's Valentine's Eve and since I don't have a special guy in my life right now I've decided to write about other special "Valetine's" that I do have.  First of all, there is my Mom.  Now I realize that all women can not say that they have a good relationship or any relationship with their Mother so I know that I am truly blessed. Now don't get me wrong, we have had our struggles, I'm sure Mom would say that "stuggle" is putting it mildly. When I was younger there were times that I didn't think that she understood me or loved me or could see where I was coming from.  Now that I'm older, I can not imagine if she hadn't been in my life. She has loved me, prayed for me, cried with me, encouraged me, and been there for me through some very tough times.  She has sacrificed herself time after time for my happiness and well-being.  Then there is my step-dad, John.  They have been married almost 18 years, no doubt it was hard for him to take on an extra teenager and child (I was 14 and Nick was 11).  He has always loved me, supported me, taken care of me, helped fix my cars, helped me buy cars, been my Mr. Fix-it, and to many other things to count.  Then there are my brothers, just like any other siblings we have fought and not always seen eye to eye. Now that we are all three adults, I think we can see what's important in life are people not things.  Then there is extended family, my Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Cousins-in-laws, etc. are the best!  Jess and I laugh about it all the time but we KNOW that our family is the greatest!  Now when we are all together it is loud and at times chaotic but we all truly love being together and I wouldn't trade those times for any amount of money in the world.  Then there is my sister-in-law whom I love very much and enjoy spending time with because I need an extra girl on my side!  She has brought the two sweetest boys into my life and made me an official Aunt.  And last but definitely not least are my girlfriends,  they have laughed with me (or at me), let me cry, and supported me when I didn't know what to do.  So overall, even though these "Valentine's" may not be the conventional type, I have so many people that I love and who love me that I realize that this holiday means a lot more than I give it credit for.  Happy Valentine's Day everybody!  I love you.

My First Post

Okay so I'm new to this blogging thing. I love to read Jessica's, Lesley's, Carol's, Allie's, etc. My life is definitely much different than theirs.

As most of you know, I am single. 32 and single. It used to bother me and sometimes it still does. There are days where I look at myself in the mirror and say "Why are you still single? What's wrong with you?" Those days are fewer and farther between now than they use to be but every once in a while they sneak in.

I work for Dr. Eli Jackson and Dr. Brad Graham in Bowling Green. I have an AWESOME family, a great group of friends, and I love my job.

I thought that blogging might be cathartic so watch out folks - some days could be very wordy. See you soon.
