Conversations of "old crazy lady!"

While at work the other day....

I was taking my client out to run errands, we had been out for about 5 hrs! Christmas shopping, running normal errands. It was approaching that time to go home for the day and I was ready to be off work for the day. I look over at said client and said, "okay where to next?" She gives me some sort of direction. Half way there she looks at me and says "where are we, where have you taken us?" I laugh and say: "you told me we were going to Starbucks for gift cards next." In reply: "no, no we should be going in that direction!" She points thinking I'm gonna be able to see this out of the corner of my eye, while driving. Shaking my head I repeat: "where to?" She says "turn around we are going the wrong way." In reply, I say "but there is a comedian in my way.. Lol.. Whoops I mean a median!" This ends in a fit of laughter and she replies. "Wow! Those CROWDS look like there is a storm a brewin'!" This starts a up another fit of laughter, and she can't help it and says: "wow! And I thought I was the crazy old lady on drugs..."

I can't help but love my job and the "old crazy ladies on drugs" I get to take care of. It is a joy to spend time with someone that shows you respect and chats your ear off daily. God has blessed me with the best! What more could a woman ask for?

So, since April I have moved 8 times!! If you calculate it correctly; that's about once a month, and you would be correct with that calculation. I have moved from place to place about once a month, give or take a few weeks. That's even moving from one state to all the way across country!


I just want a place to live and settle down in for at least 6 months... That's all I'm asking, just 6 months. Is that TOO much to ask?

I have a great full time job! I take care of people, Literally! I go to someone else's house, I help them with anything and everything that they could possibly want to do that day... It's called being a "Caregiver." I LOVE my job! It's my favorite job thus far, and I work for a awesome company. i just need a place to live, so I can keep this job that I love so much.

So I ask, God where do You want me to live?

A trip across country-Georgia to California

The drive to California with my little brother was somewhat of an adventure. We started driving the afternoon of June 21st to head to our parents in Big Bear, California. The plan wasn't to drive straight thru at the beginning, but low and behold Matthew my brother just wanted to get to the destination! I brought my mechanic/brother with me for a very good reason, best travel companion ever :), or rather someone to fix my auto if anything should happen! Hehe! Being prepared for something that might not happen, but the possibility of it happening... is one of my strong suits! We did end up breaking down in New Mexico! Where it just so happened someone we know's brother lives in the town we broken down in!! Some may call it "fate," I call it a "God-thing." After having driven about 1600 miles, we were stuck in the desert! In the middle of the HOT, 12pm, 110 degree weather, 24 hrs of driving, and no sleep!! And now having to diagnose the car problems, purchase all the supplies, and install everything, just to find out that wasn't what was causing the problem. He started with the cheapest problem and continued to the most expensive! Changed the distributor cap, spark plugs, and fuel pump. It ended up being the fuel pump that was the problem! It took awhile, but Matthew finally figured it out. It took around 12hrs (from break down to fixed car) to get back on the road to our final destination. We were at Auto Zone purchasing supplies and using their tools, and they closed right as he finished fixing the car, it was amazing timing!! With my mechanic brother sleeping in the seat next to me at 12am, finally! I drove almost the remaining 600 miles right up until my brother woke up, he said I looked at him and said "I'm not going to make it up the mountain." we switched drivers, and I immediately fell asleep! He drove the remaining 60 miles to my parents house. We arrived early saturday morning June 23rd. Estimated trip time: 41hrs. when it should have only taken 34hrs, with no breakdown. The Lord truly was watching over us!

Such an adventure, and a great couple days spent with my awesome little brother! Though there we "mishaps" along the way, I had fun :)

Seeing blue lights in your review mirror

On my way to the Lord's Table this morning, I got pulled over. My thoughts... "great, something else I can't afford right now! Satan is really trying hard to get me down..."
He was just letting me know my brake lights are faint and I should get them checked out.

Later on when driving home from a ministry meeting, I see blue lights in my review mirror, yet again! My thoughts... "twice in one day, for no apparent reason at all? Seriously?!? MAN, do cops have nothing better to do than to bug me?" he let me go with a "your brake lights are faint, you should get them checked out."

Moral of the story, I think I need someone to check out my brake lights, someone other than a police officer. The Police officers have checked them out enough in one day, for my comfort level! If I get pulled over one more time, and the cop says one word about my brake lights, I'll probably scream, at Satan, for bothering me SO MUCH! So much for protecting us from criminals...

Quotes I feel

So these are some quotes that I've been feeling are completely true in my life right now... thought it'd be fun to share :) 

"there will always be a part of me that misses him and wishes we could be together."

"And I wonder if I ever cross your mind, because for me, it happens all the time."

"Use your smile to change the world, but don't let the world change your smile."

"I'm having a really hard time getting over you. The worst part is, I never even dated you."

"Please don't be in love with someone else."

"It shouldn't bother me, but it does. I shouldn't care about you, but I do. I should hate you, but I don't."

"I don't know if I could ever stop liking you..."

"That feeling you get in your stomach when you see him."

"If I died tomorrow, what one thing would you want me to know?"

"If you love me let me know, if you don't let me go."

"Our small, stupid conversations mean so much more to me than you'll ever know."

"I hope you get all the things you want in life. ...I just wish I could be one of those things."

"I want someone who I can be a complete dork with."

"Sometimes we have to fight for what we love and care about. But sometimes, we have to find the strength to let it go"

"I'm still in love with you. I tried not to be, but it didn't work."

"Smile and let the world wonder why."

"I start to forget you and then someone says your name or something smells like you or someone has your smile and I lose all progress."

"I want someone who will look at me everyday, like it's the first time they've ever saw me."

"I don't want us to be strangers."

My wish for him... A part of me will always love him.

this song keeps coming back to me, every time I hear it, I think of a specific person, so I just felt I should dedicate it to him. Name will not be posted... sorry all, you'll never know :P! 

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you

And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin' ?til you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you and the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get

Oh, you'd find God's grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish, yeah yeah

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold

And while you're out there gettin' where you're gettin' to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish
(My wish for you)

This is my wish
(My wish for you)
I hope you know somebody loves you
(My wish for you)
May all your dreams stay big
(My wish for you)

My Athens

Last week I found myself having to suddenly pick up and move... no longer was I able to stay where I was living. Though it was extremely stressful, the Lord worked it all out for the better. I no longer have to drive the hour to Athens 3 days a week! I'm super excited about this fact... Saves me gas money, woohoo!! So I say hello to my new home... Athens, GA. Though it's only temporary, I have to say, I LOVE my new apartment. Here are some pictures... The fountain, and the entry!
