It's that time...

Well friends, I think it's time for Amber to start browsing her options as far as residence goes. I love my home, but I just feel like I need the experience. Never in my entire life have I moved out of my parents house. There have been some things that have caused me to lean toward this direction lately, but I always disregarded them and made myself stick it out. However, today confirmed that I am not crazy. I am hoping everything works out and hopefully by the beginning of next year (if not before) I will be moving in with a really awesome girl whom I think will make a great roommate. I'm not quite sure how things will play out in the near future, but it's definitely something to work towards, save up for and be praying about. I'm an adult now, which is so weird. I feel like it would be a growing experience and make me grow up some more. I have a steady job and I really think that I can manage financially as well. It will be a HUGE step for me but I really think it will be wonderful! Plus, my parents could be moving to TN within the next year or two and I don't plan on going. I think that by moving out soon will give me time to adjust to not living at home rather than taking that big step with my family being gone and everything happening all at once. One step at a time is how I like to take things- I don't deal well with everything changing all at once- it stresses me out big time! So, I really think that this is a good idea! What do you think?

-Allison left for California today- so very sad.

-This day started out awful- I hope it gets better. I really just wanted to drive as far as I could and not even come to work. Ever feel like that?

-I need Jesus to help me. I don't like that I bottle so much up until I feel like I have to explode. I'm not perfect and I need help in that area- just being honest.

Food for thought:

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for His mercies never fail.They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23

I miss you Ber..but this sounds VERY exciting!! We're all growing up and as scary as it is (and how much I wish i could have stayed a little girl with no responsibilities) it's also extremely exciting! Cant wait to hear about your adventures on your own and to see pics of your place (whenever you get it!) I LOVE YOU
