better days

i just love that song by the goo goo dolls.. if you haven't heard it, you have to check it out.
today is one of those better days. yesterday was awful. the words that escaped my mouth by evening were "it was one of the worst five days ever at my job!". there was so much tension (long story as to why.. let's just leave it at tension), and many expletives going through my mind. thankfully, i was very aware of what God was saying as well, so i held my tongue and chose to love instead of murder. and today has been better. it feels lighter in here, and i'm in a much better mood, although extremely tired!

i had lunch today at the greek place down the way with my sister and Jo. we laughed a lot, caught up on life, and just had an all around great time.
tomorrow, we drive to sioux city to meet up with lots of really cool people - people i haven't seen for months, and i can hardly wait! it should be a good time.

i'm tired; therefore, i'm having a hard time finding interesting things to say. hopefully this wasn't too boring.... from now on, this girl needs to get more sleep! though it's hard when you're married to a night person.. ;)


seven weeks tomorrow

whew! it's been about a year and a half since i posted here, and i must say: it was quite fun looking back and reading through some of my old posts! it's interesting seeing where i was a year and a half ago.. Matt and i had just started dating!! for an update, let's just say that we've progressed a little. :)
on that note, married life is fabulous!! it has it bumps and sometimes bruises, but i wouldn't trade it for the world. i love waking up beside him. i love how he draws me close at night.. both for warmth, and because we're both very "cuddle-up" type of people! i love how he looks at me when he tells me i'm beautiful, and that he loves me. he makes me coffee every morning, and does most of the cooking and cleaning. he's amazing to me! i can't wait to see where God takes us for the rest of our lives.

okay, so it's my goal to start writing in here again. it shouldn't be too much of an issue; i'm still working at the bank, and business is slow!!! slow really isn't a strong enough word, but i can't think of anything better, so we'll go with it. but all that to say, i can post while here; it'll distract me for at least a few minutes out of the day!
until then, much love, and happy friday!
