What should I expect?

Dear bloggers,

(cough, cough….. what I really mean to say is HEY BLOGGERS!!!! It has been a LONG time and lots has happened, and still happening. I hope you have all been well!!)

Okay so my hubby and I have been holding down the fort now for about two months on our own. (for those of you who don’t or didn’t know, his momma moved out on her own. so excited for her, and more excited for us) I have found a second job. Conveniently close to home, but TIME CONSUMING! Which don’t get me wrong, is a great thing! But I work odd hours so there are some days when I see my hubby for about 30 minutes, (not sarcastic one bit) a day!

But the money is nice and its a weekly paycheck. So less stress. 🙂

Now let’s be real. The real reason why I am typing today is because I am nervous out of my mind. Being a WOMAN is not fun at all, except for the shopping, the shoes, the cute clothes, the hair. . . (okay maybe a little fun)

But no seriously, having to go to the GYNO is not so fun, but I will give it this. The Pap is not that bad. Had my first one a couple of weeks ago and it is like okay. . . kinda awkward though when you don’t know what to do with the clothes and/or the convo’s you have with the lady looking at your Girl Town.

Well the doctors office called the other day saying that my Pap Test came back abnormal. This test was my first one ever. So this is scary for me. This whole thing. There are abnormal cells on my cervix. That’s all I know.

They want me to come back in 6 months (October 13th. lucky me, its not a Friday!), for  a follow up exam. Okay question: (is this just another Pap Test? or are they going to do other tests/procedures that same day? Will this effect my fertility or ability to conceive? Tell me everything I need to know because I am at my breaking point in wonder and worry, and its only about May!

I have already googled a lot of things, and watched YouTube vids. Which is why I have decided to come to you all.

(just a follow up on previous health posts, my cystic acne is just about cleared up! Yay!)

Anyways tell me your stories of the GYNO visits. Anything from humorous to helpful. How to prep for them and well ya know. . . just in general what do you do for these embarrassing things.

Adios November, Hello December

Dear Bloggers,

So it has been a short little while since I have posted anything. Everything is A-Okay here on every end and every level of my life currently. So I have worked at Romancing the Stone a.k.a Earthbound Trading Company for a few days now and I am loving it. I have missed it oh so much. This time I can see a few opportunities heading my way to possibly work there and stay as an associate! I would definitely have to put some thought into it, because I still do love Gambinos very much I could not just up and go. Decisions, Decisions. But the opportunity is still a little shady though. so…

On the other hand the weather has been nice. Just rainy which I am totally and absolutely 100% fine with. Snow and ice is a very different story for me. Yes pretty, but no, not so much to drive in.

Oh and Christmas trees. Random spot in the blog to bring up, but yes. I love Christmas trees, and I have not decorated one for about three years now. So I am making it a plan to have one up year round in my future house. (It can be décor for each season) They are just too pretty to put away, and so mesmerizing during the Christmas season!

Anyways, happy holidays to you all and hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and a safe one at that!



Update: Bloggers

Dear fellow bloggers,

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate each and every one of you! You are all having such a huge impact on my life, especially a pic few of you. My new best friend and practically soul-sister Amanda whom I can exchange my words with and trust, and then blogger Joss H. for her friendliness and compassion. Each have amazing blogs as well. Please visit their sites, it will be well worth your time! I promise!

On the other hand, things are back on the uphill slope as they were before. Just I think I did not see that or I hit a minor bump in the road. So as they are going uphill I think I am going to take it easy still on the blogging. But I promise I will be back in not time at all!

So I do have a funny story to share with you all. This just happened the other day.

I was just in the store the other day buying food for dinner when I decided to buy myself some undergarments (typical bra and panties). Well I usually try to find a lady checker so that the men are not so embarrassed, or whatever. Well my stuff was on the checkout stand, and their was a lady in front of us. When a man about my age (19, 20’s) and staring at his stuff for a while. Realizing their was now room on the conveyer belt to put his items. Then realizing my lady undergarments. His face went from his (caucasi0n) skin color to beat red in the matter of seconds. I could not help but laugh. No not to myself, out loud. It was the funniest thing ever. Like hello, I am sure you were going to see that at some point in time! He really thought about going to another checkout line. I mean he had his hands on his items ready to go, but he quickly rethought as our line was the shortest in the entire store!!!!! Oh the joys of being a woman!

You all have a wonderful day, and a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends!!!!!



Plans, Goals, and All Other Things

Dear Readers,

So I still cannot decide what I want to write about for November. So I think that is why I have written a poem, and now goals, and soon a letter! Let’s just knock out an entire month in a night, why don’t we? So anyways, I wanted to write down a few things that I really want to accomplish. Some with my partner, for our family, some just for myself. A little bit of everything.

New years is right around the corner, and I am just a step ahead. My ultimate goal is to continue finding myself within the world around me. But that is in any year. So here is a list of things I would like to accomplish within the year 2016.

  • Get a tattoo
  • live a healthier lifestyle for my own health (get back in the gym, eat right, drink water…etc.)
  • continue climbing this uphill slope (positive track) with my relationship
  • I will be twenty so hopefully find my own insurance soon
  • Find a new place to live (better suited for our lifestyle)
  • Look into getting back into college
  • Achieve a recipe book
  • Make 2 quilts
  • Go on a REAL vacation
  • buy a better car
  • BE A BETTER FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • find a better paying job if necessary at the time!!! (love my job, pay needs to support what I want in life)
  • Eventually learn to tell my mom the basics. Tell her that yes I am intimate with my partner (she already knows, but I need to be able to tell her), tell her my plans,

So all of these are certainly things I would like to accomplish in 2016. I want to be able to move forward from where I am today. Work towards my dreams, family goals, and get a step closer to where I want to be in the future.

Ultimate future goal: teach overseas (backup plan: babysitting business), own my own home, live debt free (not currently in debt, but I don’t ever want to be).

What are your goals for 2016? Do you have a new years resolution yet?
