Things I'm happy about right now:


  • fun lunches with old friends

  • driving down Poplar on a sunny day with a drink in my hand

  • proof that I'm not the only one at work who makes mistakes

  • Rold Gold pretzels

  • planning to go thrifting tomorrow

  • taking a day of sanity leave from the labeling project (and I'm on Texas now!)

  • my boyfriend giving me second-by-second updates while we're on the phone ("I'm sitting on a ladder. Now I'm standing on a ladder. Hey, that's where our water heater is!")

  • getting to see my sister twice in a week

  • being told by my old friend that I would make a good librarian :)



And on the other side of the spectrum...Where I Was When... )

You know, almost all of these memories are connected with TV. That depresses me. Though I guess it was the same for other generations' events...theirs just involved the newspaper or something. :P I'd ask why When Hurricane Elvis destroyed Memphis (7/22/03) isn't on here, but we all know that Never Happened in the eyes of the national media. Tell that to the people a block away from me who had to tear down their entire house and start over. *shakes head*

Yesterday was the best day! I got to go home a little early- on a Thursday!- because my boss wasn't here, so my director sent me home. Evan was finished with my car, so I got to spend some unexpected time with him. Since we rarely see each other in daylight, it was a big deal. He did a great job fixing the car...I'm so overwhelmed by how smart and generous he is. :) Then Kathy ordered a pizza for dinner, and I took a good walk, and Friends was on, and then Evan came back from class. I have an overwhelming feeling of gratefulness and goodwill. God blesses me so much. The only dark spot on the day was that tutoring was cancelled again, and it looks like I'm not going to be tutoring Yolanda anymore. Streets is a great ministry, but I have to really think about whether I want to start again with another kid. This will be the third time they've switched me, and I'm getting discouraged. I'm not sure yet what to do.

Sometimes when I'm feeling great and my friends are upset, I feel guilty. I feel like I need to be down there with them in order to help them. But I might not be able to help them if I was depressed, too. Plus, it's only recently that I've been happy on a more permanent basis. So maybe God can use my happiness. :) I'm not sure what my point was in sharing that.

The (unintentional) theme of this week's lyrics quiz is Feelings. I only have 8 this week because it's getting harder to come up with songs people will know. Also, I sometimes include songs that I know one person will know, but then they don't take the quiz and it's very disappointing. So please at least look! You might know one. I'm not that weird. :) La la la )

Happy late birthday to [livejournal.com profile] jsmoe34 and [livejournal.com profile] jmcphers, two friendly, fun, Godly guys. I hope you had good birthdays! Sorry I wasn't on time.

I continue to learn new things about being in a relationship, and one of them is that it apparently makes me very prone to injury. In the last six and a half weeks, I have developed tendonitis, pulled a major muscle in my back, and now gotten one of the worst bruises I've ever had from walking directly into my car's side mirror. Not to mention the way I spill things, drop things, and trip over things whenever he's around. He's very distracting. Thankfully, he knows I used to be more graceful.

This was an awesome weekend. Friday night was the best date ever. On the way to the Commissary, Jessica called, and I got Evan to talk to her. :) At dinner I ate a whole rack of ribs by myself. They were that good. All that protein made me very energetic, so we had a great time at Putt-Putt. Evan's score was considerably better than mine, but then I demonstrated my Ms. Pac-Man skills in the arcade, so we called it even. We have so much fun together. It was great. :D

Saturday was restful. I stayed at home reading and napping until late afternoon, when I went out to Collierville to see Luther with Evan, Ryan, and Chris. If you haven't seen this movie, you're really missing out. It was enlightening and beneficial. Now Evan and I are both inspired to read about Reformation history. We want to know how much of the movie was real and how much was Hollywood. :) Sunday was more peaceful happiness. Church, lunch at Abner's, visiting my parents, watching Matrix Reloaded, going to IPC's Sunday night service again to hear Jean Larroux, only to find that he wasn't speaking for the second week in a row. Next time we're going to call ahead.

I am sickeningly happy. :) I'm so excited about the next couple of months. All kinds of good things are happening. 11/1 (next Saturday)- Evan moves to his new, nearby place. 11/5- Matrix Revolutions. 11/12- Evan's birthday. 11/22- RUF barn party, at Luke and Myla's! 11/25- I leave for a Thanksgiving week in Texas, which includes another cousin's wedding. I was dreading this but now I'm actually looking forward to it. 12/14- Ryan's college graduation, for which their mom is coming, and I'll be included in some Family Outings. :) 12/17 - Return of the King. Then Christmas and New Year's. Much activity and happiness. Remind me of the happiness when the times come and I'm stressing about cleaning, money, and finding presents for everyone.

It's a brisk fall morning, I'm saved by grace, I have hot hot chocolate, I'm wearing my favorite jean skirt and boots, I finally finished Wheel of Time book 5 and am on to book 6, I have great friends, I'm well-rested for the first time in at least a week, it's Friday, and tonight I get to eat pizza and then go see Derek Webb in concert with my boyfriend. Life is good.

I come in feeling this way most mornings. But usually by the time I post, I'm so annoyed by my workday that all those refreshed, contented feelings are gone. So I wanted to capture them while they're still around. :)

(Hey, I just noticed I don't have a "happy" icon anymore. I used to use the one of me hugging the cat. Hmm.)

Happy fall, everyone! I'm glad that fall is finally here. I'm ready to wear jeans and sweaters, turn off the air conditioning, eat a lot of soup, and go to barn parties. Apparently the soup part has already sunk in, because earlier I was seized with a desperate craving for broccoli cheese soup in a bread bowl. So Ryan and Chris and I are going to McAlister's after work. I get so excited, anticipating food. In fall I'm usually hungry all the time. Oh, let's face it- I'm always hungry all the time. It's a wonder I don't gain 200 pounds.

I'm very happy to welcome [livejournal.com profile] raysofhope to the friends list. I have long admired her from afar. :)

Yesterday I had my first tutoring session of the year with Yolanda, and it was excellent! I had concerns, because at the end of last school year, she was mysteriously angry at me and said she didn't want me to be her tutor anymore. But over the summer, she's apparently forgotten whatever it was. She's much cheerier and willing to work. We worked on a TCAP math pre-test, and she flew through it and did a great job! I was impressed and proud. I have a renewed desire to help now that I've been through tutor training. They showed us some statistics from the middle and high schools that these kids attend, and they were staggering. The Memphis City Schools as a whole are failing miserably, but these were especially bad. It takes most kids an average of five years to graduate from the high school. I can't believe the government lets that continue. Anyway, I'm blessed to work with Yolanda. I felt so refreshed after our session.

Lately I'm worried about the difference in my contentment level pre- and post-boyfriend. I should be content in God, not in another person's love. Is it bad, then, that my happiness has skyrocketed in the last few weeks? I mean, being with Evan has eradicated a lot of problems besides frustration at not being with Evan; things like being left out by my friends, feeling hopeless about my future, feeling lonely in general. I don't have to worry about those things now. :D In the past few days I've been slightly annoyed about work and cleaning issues, and it was almost a relief, like "Oh, good, I can still get irritated." Being too happy makes me nervous. I feel like I'm depending too much on a person for happiness, and not enough on God. Am I making any sense?

Okay, now I've definitely talked long enough. :P So as not to end on that crazy note, here's a non-crazy item: we moved Gandalf's cat tower near a window that gets more sunlight. When I went home to eat lunch, he was curled up on the tower, napping in the sun. It was adorable. He hasn't done that since he was a tiny kitten. :)

There are a lot of little effects of a relationship that you don't think about until you're in one. For instance, the lack of sleep. I haven't gotten to bed before midnight in five nights, and for me, that's a recipe for collapse. It was normal back in my college days, but I'm apparently old now. :) Also, the mess is piling up in the apartment. Tonight Evan has his weekly gathering of truck people, so I'm planning to stay home, give everything a good cleaning, do the laundry, and then go to bed early. Only a week ago, this was a description of half the nights of my life. I like this new life better, but I still have to make time for the mundane things. And for the cat, who seems very unsettled by my absence and inattentiveness, and keeps taking it out by jumping on me and meowing extremely loudly at 2:30 am.

I'm getting ready to go to lunch with Evan. We're going to Schlotzky's. Yay!

I have other things to say but I can't really make them coherent. I promise, though, that soon I'll return to normal and stop gushing and talking about nothing. Wait, I've always talked about nothing. Okay, I promise I'll return to talking about non-sickening nothing. :)

Hello, all. I am the world's happiest girl. I had a wonderful weekend with my boyfriend. My boyfriend! How weird is that? I just can't get used to it. I'm glowing so much I'm surprised no one has forced me to wear radiation gear. :)

Friday night, after a nail-biting day of waiting, Evan came over and we talked and decided to become "official." Yay! Emily called shortly thereafter and told me about her and Daniel's engagement (so now we sort of share an anniversary, which is fun). :D

Saturday morning I went to my parents' house to tell them the news. I knew my dad would be glad, but I wasn't so sure about my mom. She surprised me, though. They were both very happy and surprised, and kept saying that he's a good guy. That was a big relief. It's really fun that he already knows my family so well and doesn't have to go through that initiation period. :) After that I went to Wal-Mart to buy my book for 40 Days of Purpose, which starts next month (are any of you doing this? It's nationwide). Then I stopped by Old Navy to get a new shirt for our date. :) I was frustrated because they mainly had cute sweaters, none of which did me any good in the 85-degree weather. But I did manage to find something.

I went home, and after a while Evan came to pick me up. We went to see Matchstick Men, which was excellent. Then he took me to Chili's for dinner. Then we came back to the apartment and he helped me do the dishes, and then we watched Monty Python. It was a very fun first date. :) Happy, happy, happy.

Sunday morning was church. It was a band Sunday, so I played both services and got to see [livejournal.com profile] admael (well, from the stage, anyway). I stayed for all of first service with the guys, and about halfway through the sermon I decided how I was going to tell Ryan. After the benediction, when everyone was dispersing, I told him, "I want you to meet somebody." He said, "Huh?" I pointed at Evan, on my other side, and said, "This is my boyfriend." :) He paused for a second, and then went on with his conversation! I was like, "I'm not kidding!" He said, "Well, what do you want me to say?" I guess he was kind of freaked out. But after a few minutes he was teasing me about it, so I guess he's okay. Evan says not to worry about it. I guess it'll just take time for me to show Ryan he's still going to be my friend, the way he's always been. I have no intention of blowing off my friends- I've learned a valuable lesson where that's concerned. :P

Sunday afternoon I took a much-needed nap, and then went to the first session of the 40 Days Bible study, which was mainly a getting-to-know-you event. I am usually annoyed by icebreakers, but we played I Never and it was actually fun. I learned some things about Evan I didn't know before. :) It's a singles-group study, so most of the people are a lot older, but we all got along. Yay.

Okay, and here are some non-smoo items, just so no one will die of sappiness. :) I just made my annual trek to Bath & Body Works where I am allowed to go in and buy an entire set of something. I love Cotton Blossom, but I wanted something new, so I bought Grapefruit Jasmine. It smells just like my beloved Gap So Pink, only more like a perfume and less like an actual grapefruit. I like it. I also visited my expensive shirt at Goldsmith's, discovered it was still not on sale, and pleaded with it to remain until I could afford it. :)

Chick-fil-A has changed their salads. They put them in a round bowl and added new toppings like broccoli (yum), but they also changed the croutons! And raised the price another dollar! What's up with that? Is there a lettuce shortage?

WE HAVE POWER!

Wehavepowerwehavepowerwehavepowerwehavepower!!!

And now on the tenth day there is much rejoicing. My stuff is still at my parents', so I have to go there after work and collect everything. But I get to spend the night in my own bed! I get to be with my cat in my own home! I can choose clothes from my closet instead of from a duffel bag! I can upload those storm damage photos! The simple pleasures of life. :) But I'm kind of sad to leave Bun. He was acting weird this morning and I'm worried about him.

I tried to record something last night for [livejournal.com profile] jessecho's fun Voices of LJ project, but the microphone didn't work. I did get to hear some of the submissions, though, and they were very funny.

I meant to say this yesterday - I am happy to welcome [livejournal.com profile] lajea to the friends list. I've seen her around for a year or so and always thought she seemed cool. :)

I heart electricity.

In all my twenty-three summers, I have never seen such a beautiful June 27th. I had lunch with Alli at McAlister's, and we ate outside and soaked up the sun. It is currently 81 degrees. It's almost July, and we've only had two or three 90-degree days so far. I cannot remember this ever happening before. It's a gift from God, that's for sure. :)

So, it's a good day. Tonight I'm going to the Redbirds game with Lawson, Jeremy, and Teresa. I found out a few days ago that the IPC choir will be singing the national anthem, so a whole slew of my other friends will be there, too. Hopefully we can all hook up. It's going to be fun.

The radio is playing the greatest songs today, including "What's the Frequency Kenneth," which is one of my favorite songs ever. And it's a Jeans Day, so I am actually comfortable as I sit here. It amazes me how much easier it is to get around when I'm wearing sneakers. I do a lot of trotting around the building in my job, and usually I'm in pain by the end of the day from my impractical business shoes. So I appreciate jeans days that much more...even if I do have to pay five dollars to participate.

In all my twenty-three summers, I have never seen such a beautiful June 27th. I had lunch with Alli at McAlister's, and we ate outside and soaked up the sun. It is currently 81 degrees. It's almost July, and we've only had two or three 90-degree days so far. I cannot remember this ever happening before. It's a gift from God, that's for sure. :)

So, it's a good day. Tonight I'm going to the Redbirds game with Lawson, Jeremy, and Teresa. I found out a few days ago that the IPC choir will be singing the national anthem, so a whole slew of my other friends will be there, too. Hopefully we can all hook up. It's going to be fun.

The radio is playing the greatest songs today, including "What's the Frequency Kenneth," which is one of my favorite songs ever. And it's a Jeans Day, so I am actually comfortable as I sit here. It amazes me how much easier it is to get around when I'm wearing sneakers. I do a lot of trotting around the building in my job, and usually I'm in pain by the end of the day from my impractical business shoes. So I appreciate jeans days that much more...even if I do have to pay five dollars to participate.

At this time next week I'll be in Miami. :)
