Hello again.

Tap....tap, tap, tap...HELLO?  Testing...One, two...three.

Is this thing on?  (cough)...(cough)...Wow, it sure is dusty!

Ok, is it bad that I forgot my password to my blog?  I wish I were kidding.   I haven't been on here in a very long time.  About a year, to be exact, and I almost gave up trying to login because I could not remember the password! Ha!

Since there is no way for me to cram an entire year into one post, or even a couple, let's just say that lots has happened.

For starters, the kids and I are a grade higher than the last time I was here.  In a couple of weeks, I will officially have two high school-aged teenagers.  I kept back-spacing because I really did not want to type that.  Because if I  type it, then it is real.  Make sense?  I want time to slow down just a little because my kiddos are growing up so fast and I'm not liking it.  Not one bit!  Marko will be a sophomore and Gabriella will be a (gulp!)...freshman.  This just boggles my mind.

This year is also my senior year as an undergrad.  (How did that happen?!)  It's both exciting and kind of scary.  This personal goal of mine of earning my bachelor degree is becoming more and more of a reality every day (obviously), but it also will mean that the only life I have known for the last three years will change, and I don't do well with change.  This is probably because I bounced around so much as a child, that I just do not do well with it now.  I was talking to my husband about the fact that this is the first time in my entire life that I have began school somewhere and actually finished the school year in the same school.  Actually doing this was completely foreign to me.  The fact that I have done this for three years now just amazes me.

Somewhere during the last year I also decided to apply for grad school.  I am even entertaining the idea of a double major and I plan on meeting with my advisor to discuss this further.  This is definitely not set in stone.  Yet. (:
I was recently blessed with an amazing, very much sought-after scholarship that will make this year completely stress-free as far as tuition, etc.  I also made the honor roll.  These are two things that I am proud of because I seriously work my butt off on this crazy educational journey, and it is kind of satisfying to see that all my and my family's sacrifices are not in vain.

My hubby recently decided he was ready for a change also and started a new job!  God is amazing, and His timing is always perfect.  I am confidant this was the perfect decision for our family and I know that hubs will be very successful.

There's not a doubt in my mind (:
