My house has been infested with a bug- a flu bug. Yuck.

I have yet to contract this illness but my mom and little sister have most definitely been infected. I'm keeping my distance. I do not need to get sick nor do I want to!

My Dad's birthday is this weekend and I have no idea what to get him, not a clue. Any suggestions?

I can't believe that tomorrow is the 7 year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 events- that is absolutely insane! I was 14 then and yet it seems like it was only yesterday. I remember every intricate detail of that entire day, even down to the clothing I was wearing. I'll never forget that day.

Obama has stepped in it again with his "lipstick on a pig" comment. I suppose that "desperate times call for desperate measures", right Mr. Obama? The convention bounce is over and the polls are radically assuming that He is in fact "goin' down". Time is the essence of what is to come. I once heard a quote that goes something like this..."We must watch our thoughts because they will become our words and we must watch our words because they will become our actions."- profound.

I suppose I should wear green more often. Yesterday I wore green and I can't tell you how many people raved about my eyes. I guess it accentuates the green in my eyes. I don't know but it made me feel good nonetheless. =)

I am seriously contemplating going back to school. I just don't know. I like my job as of now and I do wish to learn more and do more but the fact remains (shhhhh)- I'm not really passionate about it. I know, I know what you're probably thinking- "You're going to get bored with any job or career that you pursue- it's life Amber." Yeah, I know. I just am not sure that I see myself doing insurance for the rest of my life. Then again, I like my cushion and I am comfortable. I'm not in need and the pay is good. I just would love to pursue something that I love and am passionate about such as music, politics, law, teaching or something along those lines. I may look into some online courses to get a headstart. I dont know- it seems to be just a dream. I often dream but never do much about it because it seems unattainable- big weakness! I have been taught to pursue my dreams because I am capable but yet it's scary and I am a big fan of stability. I guess we'll see how it all plays out.

I know all you northerners can not attest to this, but I am so ready for fall weather! Trust me, if you lived in Florida then you would be as well! Our very hot and humid summers consume most of the year and a cool breeze lacking that awful humidity is oh so refreshing! Not to mention, the Interstate Fair is around the corner and let's just face it- Fairs come in the fall and it should be a little chilly! I am so ready!

I need to go to the gym, badly. I'm slacking and I can feel it. I just love going home, putting on my comfy clothes and reading or watching the news. I am such an old lady! I really don't have much of a social life anymore either which is absolutely crazy because I used to be known as "Ms. Social". I don't know what has happened to me!? Help!!

Have I mentioned that I am a huge fan of Sarah Palin? ;) She might very well be added to my list of Heroes which isn't too lengthy might i add.

Okay, enough of the thoughts going on in my mind. I'll spare you the time because I know that you have something much more important that needs tending to. =)

Much Love,

Yes, Fall is starting to "Bloom" so to say around here!..
Its a Absoluet BEAUTIFUL time of year!! All the awesome colors on the trees , and that Crisp feeling in the air..ahhh

The Part I dont like about it is when all the leaves fall off, then it just kinda looks Ugly here in Ohio..YUK.. AT least until we get the First snow fall and the sounds of Christmas music!!

Oh no, the Northerns are beckoning it as well! I love fall!

I hope you escape the bug and find your dad the perfect present!

I so know what you mean about being an old lady, it's actually rather nice. :)

hey girl~ First can I just say that again...crazy similarities my friend! If you are feeling truly passionate about school, pursue it! I have been in school forever!!! And I still have at least a year left, but I know God is keeping me here for a reason! You are an amazing amazing writer and teacher! Teaching I think would be so good for you! You have a lot to show others! And just think, we could teach at the same school maybe...FUN! Dont worry about being an old lady, bc everyone is at some point! Anyone who doesnt agree that comfy clothes and a little Grey's Anatomy isnt amazing, is just simply crazy!:)

Andrea said... and I are on the same page regarding school. It appears I revisit this decision every 6 months or so and here I am again. I really want to get out of business and move into healthcare, specifically Physical therapy. The only thing stopping me is the fact that I want to start a family soon. So basically, I want to go back to school AND have a baby...I guess I want it all :-o

My advice to you is to DO IT. Once a husband, a home and bills creep into your life, it gets MUCH harder to make the decision. If I was still single, I'd go back to school in a heartbeat! And you never know who you could meet along the way! ;)

It's definitely a fall-like day here in PA. Yesterday was gorgeous. My husband and I plan on sitting around a firepit on our backyard tomorrow night. Open fires are one of the greatest things about the fall!

However, I'd give an arm and a leg to be in FL! I LOVE FL! I spent a lot of summers there in Orlando and Melbourne... I miss it so much! FL is definitely my second home!
