It's been a while...

It's been some time since I posted anything of substance here.  I have various journals, documenting various goings on in my life, so trying to keep up with all of them is rough. 

Here are some recent goings on~~

I think I want to move to the beach.  It's always been a dream of mine.  It's to the point now where I'm actually researching homes in the area I would like to relocate.  I'm a Franklin girl, through and through, but it just ain't cutting it for me anymore.  I get bored easily, and maybe it will take a huge change to shake things up a bit.  We aren't seriously considering anything quite yet, as we are going to be here for another couple of years minimum, but it's nice to dream.

I want to find a photography class.  I want to learn how to really utilize my camera.  I don't just want to know how point and snap pics of the kids, I want to learn how to make pictures look awesome.  I'm not an awful "picture taker" (I will never refer to myself as a photographer) but I would love to be so much better.

I also would like to take a writing class.  I think I truly missed my calling in life, because boy, oh, boy do I LOVE to write.  I've gotten many a compliment on my writing as well.  The proof that I love writing goes back about 8 years when I started my first online journal.  8 years later, I still can't get enough of it.  I know that sometimes I mince words, or something might not sound as eloquent as I would like and I want to work on that. , Writers have my utmost respect.   I've been working on everything from screenplays to novels throughout the years and never do I finish.  To be a published author or a famed screenwriter...oh yeah, the stuff that dreams are made of.  At least for me. 

I would like to get Jack in some sort of preschool program.  He needs interaction with kids his age.  He needs to learn how to share.  And coexist with other kids.  Contrary to what he may believe (and what Mommy may believe) he is NOT the only little boy in the world and he won't get far in life if he can't share.  I won't go on about the kids here, though.  That's what the baby blog is for...  (Yeah, ANOTHER blog)...

I need, need, NEED to lose weight.  I need to really start exercising.  That is what will work, so I just need to do it. Yesterday.  Well, I have to wait for the knee and ankle to get better (small incident that involved my slipping on a slippery surface) then I can start.  I was losing for a while, but I've probably gained it all back.  I'm talented like that.

Greg and I are going to be married 5 years this year.  I can't believe it.  It's been an interesting 5 years (7 years) to say the least; filled with ups and downs.  When all is said and done, I wouldn't change a thing.  It's made us who we are today.  To be still in love and happy is a gift, and it's not something that I take lightly.  Here's to 5 more...and 5 more after that...and 5 more after that....

I guess that is it for now.
