Hello summer!

I’m all done with my papers! I only have to give and grade one more final! Woohoo!

I’m currently watching Ty fix my bike. Last time we rode, my tire was low and we popped the tube. Another interesting thing happened last time we rode, I passed out.

I think it was low blood pressure, but we stopped to take breather, and I felt funny. I was trying to get off the bike, and I passed out. I got a big old handlebar to the boob, and have a huge bruise. But other than that, I’m fine. I even rode home after.

I am thankful for a handyman. We picked up a bed we bought on Craigslist, and once we got past the tension of “I don’t know how to put this dadgum thing together” we figured it out.

I also picked up and painted a table. I’ll try to remember to take pics of it soon. Its cute. Brown and lime green for the guest room.

I’m so ready to move. Only a couple weeks.

Until then, I’m just figuring out my summer plans. I’m teaching Sumer II, workin on my thesis proposal, doing transcription for a prof, and maybe tutoring. Seems like a lot, but I think I got it (and some free time too!). Hope so!

For now, I’m off to cheer on my handyman in finishing my bike. Later!

Almost there…

Its almost the weekend.

I got a mini weekend with mom’s visit. We did massages, ate sushi, and shopped. We are great at being pampered and spending money! haha…

Rachael and her new beau Matt came to Fay today and I had dinner with them. So fun to catch up with friends as they continue on in life. I like being a part of the new life too.

We got in some wedding photos today. They look awesomer (yes, its not a word, but I’m using it) than online. I’m in love with my photos. And I want to get married again. It was so fun.

I’m watching a live Hanson concert online. I love the internet. Praise the Lord for Internet and Hanson. Love them. Love their music. Love their concert sweaty bodies….so hott. Yes, I’m allowed to say that. I’m happily married and in love with my husband, but Zac Hanson will always be my first love (we just never had the chance to really meet and fall in love….so Tyler won out in the end. 🙂 Guess I did too!)

Uncertainty Reduction

Uncertainty reduction is a theory in communication that says people don’t like uncertainty (see post below) and through communication, strive to reduce that uncertainty. Well, yesterday, at the doctor they gave me some kinda answers. They said my lumps were two swollen lymph nodes. Good. But the weird thing was, they don’t know why they are so swollen. No infections, no elevated white count, no ticks (she checked), no mono, no anemia, no nothing. So…in two weeks, I have to go back and have them checked again. If they don’t go away, we will need to do more tests to figure them out.

So for now, no worries. Thank you Lord!

I also had dinner last night with my girl friends! I just love them! Hannah, Kayla, and Beth are pledge sisters of mine that all live in NWA, and we had a great couple of hours laughing, talking, and gossiping over yummy McAlister’s salads, soups, sandwhiches and cheese dip. So great! I love those girls!

Mom is on her way to town…so we have a couple fun days together! I’m excited!


I don’t like uncertainty. I prefer to fully know about any situation and be as in control as I can be of any situation.

Well, right now I have some uncertainty. There is a weird little lump on the side of my neck that is painful to the touch. No clue what it is. I noticed it several days ago, and today it is visible.

I’m going to the doctor tomorrow to hopefully put my mind at ease that it is nothing. I don’t like uncertainty.
