Yesterday, a day to Remember

January 29, 1989- September 30, 2009
A dear friend of mine would have turned 22 yesterday. Chance Wayne Threet was a great guy, practically a brother to me. He was one of my brother's best friends, and a great, positive influence on my life. He loved the Lord and wasn't afraid to say so. There is not a day goes by that I don't miss him. I know that he is in a better place, and celebrating his birthday with our Savior. Your memory lives on Chance. Ride Cowboy Ride. Forever in our hearts and memories. RIP Chance Wayne!

Alright, I have procrastinated enough; it's time to post a new blog! In my last post, I said that my husband got his orders home. I am looking forward to seeing his smiling face in the airport at the beginning of March. That is, if the Army gets their crap together and actually lets him come home on time! It is funny how God can put situations and people into our lives and test us. He knows just how much we can handle, and He wants to make sure that we know that we have to turn to Him in all circumstances good and bad. Weston has been put to the test lately with an investigation that is going on. I'm proud to say that through all of this, we know that the Lord is the answer. He has a reason for everything and no matter what, the end result will work out just the way it is supposed to.

In the past month or so, I've been sick too many times for my liking. I just finished up with some kind of stomach virus, we will just call it the stomach flu. After not being able to keep down food or liquids for several days, my family insisted that I go to the Dr. Well, the military base Doctors are free, so my mom took me there. Come to find out, I only have Tri-Care Standard, and can only see emergency room doctors instead of just making appointments with a primary Dr. That explains why I was having so much trouble trying to book an appointment online! So a guy came in and explained all the legal paperwork that Weston had to do in order for me to be able to get the other type of insurance. With that all said and done and on its way to me in snail mail, we are one step closer to figuring out the military's medical insurance. Hooah!

The doctor also gave me a very inspiring speech about why I should take my medicine and what it is going to do to me if I don't. I hate the fact that I have a thyroid condition, and I basically had quit taking my medicine because I grew accustomed to the side effects of being low-thyroid. However, after her speech and hearing what I am doing to my long-term health, I am making a commitment to take my medicine every day. Plus, it will make me feel better overall, right? Right!

I started online classes this week for college again. I feel like it is going to be a great opportunity for me to be able to participate in classes without actually having to go to the campus. Not only will I save in gas money, but maybe, just maybe, I won't hate my classes so much. I like being able to do things at my own pace, where ever I want to! It also allows for me to keep my own schedule. I have a feeling that until Weston comes home I am going to be taking night classes. AKA I sleep when he sleeps and I get to talk to him a whole lot more! Hip hip hooray!

The four classes that I have chosen to take this semester are College Algebra- which I absolutely loath!, Creative Writing II- which I am semi looking forward to since I love to write, Public Speaking- because who doesn't love being able to take a speaking class where you get to sit in front of your web cam instead of a class :), and Medical Terminology-because I know that someday I will need to know some of these stupid terms... and Lori is in the class too, score!

That is the gist of what is going on in my life right now. Toodles.
