I've been getting yelled at by everyone lately because I haven't updated this here blog regularly and my friends have let me know that it is NOT.ACCEPTABLE.AT.ALL.

Geez, I didn't know you cared so much. *smile*

But what I will say is that between work, taking care of my daughter (and husband, I guess) and looking for a new job that's a wee bit closer to where I live (yeah, that 2.5 hour commute each day is killing me and my car) I've been eating dinner and then collapsing into bed around 9:30 every night. Did I mention I'm 21?

I know truthfully, there is nothing in my life that I should be complaining about. And really I'm not complaining. I'm just thinking, Why do I feel so....old? (Apologies to my over 30 readers) I just think it's interesting that I really do not have much in common with my friends my age. They are, for the most part, still in school and working and having fun and doing all those things you do when you are young and free. I relate much better to my older counterparts, who know firsthand the joys of putting your children to bed, anticipating a night of "quality time" with your hubby, only to have your plans shot to heck when your child realizes he/she isn't quite ready to go to bed despite the fact that mommy and daddy haven't had any "alone time" in quite a while... (I do hope you all know what I'm alluding to with the quotation marks)

I mean, I knew I was old the night of my bachelorette party, when it was 11 pm and one of my friends suggested we go to the club and celebrate properly. We all just kind of looked at each other and said, "Naw, let's just go to sleep." And that's what we did. We went to bed.

But that was fine with me. I enjoy a good night of sleep more than anything right about now. Give me a choice between sleeping for 10 hours in a bed filled with fluffy pillows and 500-count Egyptian cotton sheets or winning $25,000 - well, I'll probably take the money, but I would at least hesitate and think about it for a moment.

Funny how your priorities change as you get older.....

What to do now?

Man, I have really fallen off in my attempt to blog regularly. I can't believe my last post was two weeks ago. I've been busy, as you can probably guess, with settling into married life and searching for a job like crazy.

I've been reevaluating this blogging thing and wondering if I'm going to continue. It seems like a hassle at this point, especially because I'm not doing it often enough or well enough to get paid for it. I do like to write every day, and blogging gives me an opportunity to do that, but sometimes I just want to come home and relax and not have to worry about it.

But people have been sending me messages, or leaving me comments, saying they miss reading my posts. I honestly didn't know that many people cared whether I wrote something or not. That makes me feel good. So maybe I will continue.

I'm going to sit down this weekend and try to come up with a regular blogging schedule, so maybe this upcoming week you'll see more of me. In the meantime, keep your fingers crossed that one of these jobs I've applied for comes through.

It's official!

5 days of wedded bliss and counting.....
"Weeks and days leading up to this day, people have asked me am I nervous. They seemed surprised when I told them no. I told them no because I have no doubt in mind that you are the one for me and the one that I need to make my life complete and whole. I get excited when I think about the future and all the potential and the possibilities that we have together. Being and standing strong together with love and God on our side, we can and will conquer all. With God all things are possible and I know that he made you just for me."
