Reflection.

I've always wanted to be able to charm with my words, instead I end up researching and listing facts. I can't keep your attention with my inarticulate ramblings, and really, i'm not interesting enough to occupy your time. Even so, I'm going to write my thoughts.
I was thinking about parakeets earlier. Yes, the tiny little birds that amiably pass their time by affectionately pecking at their own reflection in a mirror. They, just like us, can die of a broken heart. If they have experienced love in their life; attention, affection, something outside of themselves...If they have that, and it is taken away, they have nothing left. Nothing except that mirror that used to draw their pleasure and excitement. All of a sudden the mirror doesn't hold the attraction it once did. And what is left except for a broken heart and the deep pit of depression.
The "shiny" things we hold dear, the things of most importance, they can change or be taken away in an instant. What is important in this life? What will future generations remember about us, if anything? Even if we are influential in this life, what does that really matter? Doing right does not guarantee that what is right will be done back. In fact, it quite guarantees that it won't. Why should we look past that shiny mirror? Yes, we may find even more happiness and fulfillment behind that mirror, but in almost every circumstance, it will be so much more painful than if we'd just settled for entertaining ourself with that empty mirror. We could happily spend our days adoring the perpetual mirror, but there is more pain to our existence than that. Why?

bllleeehhh

I have my 2 pre-op appointments...one in aug and the other at the beginning of sept. I think they both involve more impressions. At least one appointment I have to have impressions. I gag just thinking about it.
I can't wait to be off of work for over a month! I want to go back to school soooo bad. I miss thinking, discussing, writing, talking about and playing music, art...I miss the buildings at rollins, the teachers, the beautiful lake. I look at my old homework and marvel that I was ever that smart.

Only get one life, make the most of it!


What do you think of this haircut for after my surgery?

A Good Couple of Nights

Christopher said that he had planned a date for us tonight and wouldn't tell me where we were going or what we were doing.  He pretty much doesn't do surprises.  At all.  Ever.  
He took me to the little area on Park Ave that we'd gone to on one of our dates before we got married...

He told me that he loved me and asked me if I would be married to him forever, then he pulled this out of his pocket... (I couldn't get a good picture)

We walked up and down Park Ave, where we saw the UNfriendliest tree EVER!

then we went to Brio for dinner...so good!

Just blogging

Yesterday I woke up at 5am to a loud glass-crashing noise after only 5 hours of sleep.  I got up, locked my door and called Chris at work to ask if I should go downstairs.  I figured the cat had knocked something off of the counter, but it was SO loud.  He had winter garden PD come out (they just looked around the outside). I guessed they were gone after I saw flashlights shining in my window.  It's just a little more scary since we're backed up to woods that are awesome for hiding in.  So, I go downstairs and NOTHING is out of place or broken.  Am I going crazy?

I got alot done yesterday since I got up so freakishly early.  I took The Charli and the cat to petsmart and gave them a good bath, came home and had breakfast and watched "the stepford wives club" (pretty dumb movie), got my nails done at the AWESOME nail place just down the road in the fowler's grove shopping center, went to target, and went shopping for some home items at TJ maxx...love that store.  I got a 10 piece kitchenaid set of non-stick pots and pans with some housewarming money that Chris' parents gave us...it was only $120, usually almost $200.  That's something we've BOTH been wanting for a long time.
     Chris didn't have to go to work until 10pm so we went to a pizza place in downtown winter garden.  I think my mom and tracy would really love downtown winter garden, it's really cute with lots of antique, and other cute little stores that you would find in a historic downtown.   
     I finished un-packing yesterday!!!  it looks like a house, minus the bedroom...chris hasn't had time to un-pack his closets yet.  Yes, he gets closetS.  Two closets.  I have the biggest one though so I definately can't complain.  His gun safe takes up about half of one of his closets, it's a monster.  But I'm really motivated to learn how to shoot now, yesterday morning kinda scared me.  This is the longest blog I've written in a while.  I'm hungry now.
