Can you believe it is February already?  I know I can't! Everything is going by so fast. February is going to be a very busy month for me as well! Let me do a little out loud thinking and list what will be going on in my life:

#1. My little brother's last semester of high school is getting on a roll! A lot of his once in a lifetime senior activities start this month that I will need to attend. My little brother is almost all grown up! Pretty crazy, don't know if I'm ready for that! 

#2. Valentine's day of course! I am a sucker for it but this year Ryan and I will not be exchanging gifts. Money has been an issue for us this year so we can do without gifts! So if anyone has any suggestions for any gift or anything that doesn't involve money, I'll gladly consider them! I know yall are creative! 

#3. I move home this month! I just started gathering boxes to start packing, so I may be a little behind already! I literally don't have a free weekend to move everything in one trip so it will be crazy! I know my family is very excited though.

#4. I start my new job as a vet technician back home too! I'm excited to have more responsibility as a tech! 

#5. Ryan's 24th birthday is this month! I have no plans for it yet but need some! Once again, money-smart ideas would be greatly appreciated! 

Do yall have a busy month? Any special plans for V-day? Let me know!

Can you believe it!? I'm actually back!

6 months.. that is a very long time to leave yall hanging! I'm so sorry guys, I truely am! I have an explanation for you though! Remember my last couple posts about my mom? Thats my explanation! Once that happened things got crazy and I just didn't have the motivation to come back to blogging until now. I guess before jumping back on the train I should give yall an update on my life!

Well things with my mom are so much better now! She did have a double bypass surgery which was very scary! The morning after it she went into cardiac arrest and had to have CPR performed on her for 32 minutes, scariest moment of my life. But she came back to us, she did always told me she was strong! However the CPR caused internal bleeding and the next day she had to go into surgery again to fix that. She doesn't remember any of that obviously, she only remembers going into surgery the first time then waking up 4 days later. Those 4 days were so hard on us but more so on her. After all of that, my focus has changed dramatically, as it should. Family has always been a huge priority in my life but now it is truely of the MOST importance! 

I'm moving back to my hometown TO my family in a month! I am not currently in school right now, but I have a plan on starting a Vet Technology school during the summer (which I'm super excited about)! Moving back home is good but sad too! I will miss all of my friends here and my amazing sorority! 

Mostly though I think I will miss my job! I still work at the vet clinic I had started earlier and love it! It is what made me completely change my mind about what I wanted to do with school. It's been such a blessing and has really given me something to be passionate about during these past few hard months. 

Doesn't it look amazing? Lucky for me I have already secured a job back home for when I move! It's at a vet as well as a vet technician! I am very excited for that too! Another exciting thing about moving home will be this..

For the first time in at least 4 years of our relationship, Ryan and I will be living in the same town! It will be so different and so nice!

I am doing my best to catch up on yalls blogs and get back in the swing of things here! I'm glad to be back yall and even more glad to reporting nothing but good news!
