Dear Friends,

and graduates...j/k. I found out that come May I will be adding to the list of college graduates in my family. It is exciting, scary, and a bunch of other emotions combined. It's been a rough first two weeks, as the first week Brooke and I were both sicker than dogs, and the second week, I've been fighting off a double ear infection. Class has been interesting as I sit in Never Never land most of the time!!!!

I have met someone new and he is amazing and exciting at the same time. He doesn't want me to move in or anything tomorrow. He understands that I'm busy I understand that he's busy and so the time we do get to spend together we absolutely cherish. He works for a trucking company, and he loves it most of the time!!!!! They do rig moves and such!!!! He's one of the lucky ones who gets to sit in his nice leather chair out of the elements, but sometimes, like today, he has to go out and actually work. I do give him a hard time and he returns it. You really can't meet someone who ISN'T in the oilfield out here. He makes me laugh and I make him laugh so we're all good. I'm going to see where it takes us in the next couple of months. I don't really forsee anything bad happening between us, we have such a great time together. He, my sisters man, my sister and I all went out for her birthday and we had such a great time together. When you get us all together you never know what's going to happen, in the company of friends anything is possible. My sister likes him and thinks he's a nice guy, so that is good. Now I've just got to get him to meet my parents!!!!

My Brookins is changing yet again. She's growing up, and she's starting to look more and more like a little girl vs. a toddler. It's amazing how fast they grow up. I miss her on the weekdays because I attend class 4 out of 5 nights a week, and it's hard on her and myself. She's the light of my life. She has decided she doesn't like Gabriel because she's not ready to share her momma!!! I tried to explain to he one night that I will always love her but that she has to share!!! She doesn't understand, she just doesn't like when we hug and stuff!!! It's really hard on the both of us I think. He tried to explain to her that he loved her and that he loved her mommy too...she didn't take too kindly to that!!!!! I don't blame her.

Its been a ride this year already. Dad has finished his radiation treatments. My sister is on a better path to a new more exciting life. Where she has met the most wonderful man who treats her and everyone else with respect. He's been there more for those kids than their own father has.

I know I haven't posted in a while, but my birthday is coming up and I expect flowers on my desk on Feb. 4th from someone I love!!!
