I'll Be Home for Christmas....

I'm FINALLY home!
I'm so relieved that school is over until next month and I can relax! This semester has been the hardest, craziest, and on top of all that the busiest! Looking forward to having a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, everyone know she's the one who runs the show!

Hoping everyone has a blessed Christmas and very happy New Year!

AHHHH...4 Days in Counting

So school starts in less than 4 days. I'm ready and not ready at the same time....I'm the kind of person that needs a routine...granted I'm not a fan of getting up early, but I can do if I have too. :)

I'm looking forward to this semester because I'm only 3 semesters away from graduating from COLLEGE...AHHH now that's scary!

Well I hope everyone that is already back in school continues to have a great year, and people (like me) who haven't started yet have enjoy this year and that it FLIES by quickly!

I'm Pretty Oh So Pretty!

I made my blog "pretty", its sort of a hint on how I'd like decorate my bedroom....if I just had the funds. This living on a college budget thing....kinda sucks! I'm sorta working 3 jobs right now, and there is very little left over....ugh! I can't wait to be on a grown up budget...

...but speaking of pretty. Last night while going though some of my Facebook pictures I noticed my profile picture (which I wasn't sure I liked), and I thought to myself "I look pretty", and to be honest....that's NEVER happened before.....I've had pictures I've liked, but never a picture that I thought I was pretty in! I'm sure what happened something sorta clicked in my head. So know I can say I have a pretty Facebook picture :)

Getting Settled In

So I know I owe my few faithful followers, pictures of my new furnished apartment. I have furniture and things up on the walls, but the things are still not where I want them, and to be honest, with summer school (BIO ugh that another post), and working 2-3 jobs (depending on the week), I just haven't had much time to do of anything, especially clean and moving things around....but I promise to post picture very very VERY soon!

The Kitchen

The living room.
The dinning area!

...still moving....

This whole moving thing is taking WAY longer than I thought it would....partly because I have very little furniture......which consists of a desk,table, and little place's to put things.....things just keep moving from pile to pile.

The good news is that that the couches are coming tomorrow!!!!! I'm hoping that will make this apartment a little more homier feeling. :]

The Old Man

The Old Man...

As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of groceries towards my car, I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a lady sitting inside the car, with the door open.

The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car and continued to watch the old gentleman from about twenty five feet away.

I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm, walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming too and took a few steps towards him. I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something.

The young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac Escalade and then turn back to the old man and I heard him yell at the old gentleman saying, 'You shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car at your age.' And then with a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking lot.

I saw the old gentleman pull out his handkerchief and mop his brow as he went back to his car and again looked at the engine. He then went to his wife and spoke with her and appeared to tell her it would be okay. I had seen enough and I approached the old man. He saw me coming and stood straight and as I got near him I said, 'Looks like you're having a problem.'

He smiled sheepishly and quietly nodded his head. I looked under the hood myself and knew that whatever the problem was, it was beyond me. Looking around I saw a gas station up the road and told the old man that I would be right back. I drove to the station and went inside and saw three attendants working on cars. I approached one of them and related the problem the old man had with his car and offered to pay them if they could follow me back down and help him.

The old man had pushed the heavy car under the shade of a tree and appeared to be comforting his wife. When he saw us he straightened up and thanked me for my help. As the mechanics diagnosed the problem (overheated engine) I spoke with the old gentleman.

When I shook hands with him earlier, he had noticed my Marine Corps ring and had commented about it, telling me that he had been a Marine too. I nodded and asked the usual question, 'What outfit did you serve with?'

He had mentioned that he served with the first Marine Division at Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal. He had hit all the big ones and retired from the Corps after the war was over. As we talked we heard the car engine come on and saw the mechanics lower the hood. They came over to us as the old man reached for his wallet, but was stopped by me and I told him I would just put the bill on my AAA card.

He still reached for the wallet and handed me a card that I assumed had his name and address on it and I stuck it in my pocket. We all shook hands all around again and I said my goodbye's to his wife.

I then told the two mechanics that I would follow them back up to the station. Once at the station I told them that they had interrupted their own jobs to come along with me and help the old man. I said I wanted to pay for the help, but they refused to charge me. One of them pulled out a card from his pocket looking exactly like the card the old man had given to me. Both of the men told me then, that they were Marine Corps Reserves. Once again we shook hands all around and as I was leaving, one of them told me I should look at the card the old man had given to me. I said I would and drove off.

For some reason I had gone about two blocks when I pulled over and took the card out of my pocket and looked at it for a long, long time. The name of the old gentleman was on the card in golden leaf and under his name....... 'Congressional Medal of Honor Society.'

I sat there motionless looking at the card and reading it over and over. I looked up from the card and smiled to no one but myself and marveled that on this day, four Marines had all come together, because one of us needed help. He was an old man all right, but it felt good to have stood next to greatness and courage and an honor to have been in his presence.
Remember, OLD men like him gave you FREEDOM for America. Thanks to those who served...& those who supported them.

America is not at war.
The U.S. Military is at war.
America is at the Mall.
If you don't stand behind our troops,
PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

Remember, Freedom isn't Free, thousands have paid the price so you can enjoy what you have today.

Blog Quote Monday!

There’s a trick to the “graceful exit.” It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.
