where have I been?!

I've been nannying, then I got let go, so now I'm ninja-ing. But really, I start training for a new job next Tuesday -wish me luck- and have been topsy turvy with everything else. 
The summer came and went, rather quickly, and fall is now upon us all. No getting kids to school, just getting myself ready for work. I bought heels.. that's a little short of a miracle for myself, I'm pretty much against being tall, I have an aversion towards it. But they were cute. 
Bru is turning ONE next month, A gets home somewhere around the start of all our festivities aka thanksgiving and Christmas. 
I learned a lot about myself, I've been thinking of going back to ombre hair, I used to have it.. then I was like "BLONDE" and now I'm all "CANT AFFORD!" So back to being cheap. 
I joined the Y just down the road, I'll be getting my workout on, lucky for me my schedule for the next 9 weeks puts me at work around 3 and off around 11pm (swing shift!) so I'll be able to workout in the mornings and still basically have a normal life.. when A gets home it'll be interesting, opposite schedules and all. 
I hope that this new shift allows me time to be on here, blogging and re-building a follower base. I am so sorry to have been gone. Life just gets in the way, all the darn time.

Just a little something that reminds me of a certain someone.. at times 

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) 
I am never without it (anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) 

I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) 
I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and its you whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you. 

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) 
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart. 

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart) 

even when you piss me off, make me want to hit you over the head with a frying pan -50s style- I seem to recall the reasons why I love you.

Here's to a life full of realistic goals and expectations.. anger, and hopefully more laughter than either of us can handle.

three years

Its hard to think that three years ago I met A and we bonded over a bottle of tequila, kings cup and our mutual love for his bed (sorry dad) 
2009, after we first met.
Its hard to believe that you've been my best friend, confidant and a huge motivator for me these last few years. Whenever I feel like I'm not good enough, or when I say I can't you bring up the fact that when I lost my job last December, I had an interview almost every week and got a new job in three weeks. 

After deployment #1 2010

The biggest achievement for us is probably having stayed together through thick and thin. We've had our ups and downs, we've had a breakup and we've also had to deal with incredibly silly drama.. throughout three deployments and on top of some of the hardest months of our lives. You've been my rock when things went down the tubes and I can only hope the same for you.

 And now that we're counting up the years together, we constantly get the "well when are you getting married?" question, and while I'm incredibly impatient, you're worth the wait, even if we're in our 30's.. though I hope you don't wait that long!

Happy three years babe, and here's to a few more years of us being incredible. 

ps: you kinda smell for deploying all the time.
