hi, livejournal. i've missed you. [Mar. 1st, 2010|01:54 am]
manda
i really have missed typing my mindless thoughts for all the internet world to see.  ive been reading through lots and lots of old posts on here and its so funny how reading certain things can take you back to the day you typed it.  its amazing to me.  i think i'd like to print out my entire livejournal one day, just to make sure i have it forever.  SO much has changed since i started this journal. 

chris and i are married now, and are expecting our first baby!  we're so excited... but its super weird to look back on past journal entries from 2003 and see how different our mindsets were back then.  im almost positive that im a completely different person, which is sorta scary.  i really do miss being able to pick up and go and do whatever i wanted when i wanted.  that diminishes with age, though, i suppose.  i look back at how goofy and fun chris and i were all the time, and i sorta miss that.  not that we arent still goofy OR fun... it just seems like its not as often.  i find myself refraining from swearing, for the most part, at least... which would have NEVER happened a few years ago.  i tend to yell at chris in public more often when he does something funny... which would have never happened.  a few years ago, i more than likely would have been sword fighting with him down the aisle of super k with giant sticks of salami.  (which actually happened on more than one occasion in the past).  i guess im just kinda sad that ive grown up.  and not because of bills, and a mortgage and all the responsibilities of being grown up... those things all suck, too... but i mean mentally and spiritually, i guess.  i really wish i could rewind my life and live the fun times we've had over and over again.  or at least have them on video, lol.  i miss parking my 1989 toyota camry 3 blocks away from aaron's house to go hang out with chris so that i wouldnt get in trouble.  i miss GETTING in trouble for skipping class to go see him.  i miss sitting on my mom and dads porch swing, talking to chris until the cordless phone went dead.  i miss getting yelled at because i had school in the morning, yet i was up at 3AM talking to chris on instant messenger.  i even miss waiting all night for him to sign on when he was in arizona, just so i could talk to him for a little while before i went to sleep.   we've been down a loooooong, winding road, and i wouldnt change any of it.  not even arizona.  because when he came home, id never been so happy in my entire life.  until the day i married him.  

well, jeez.  this turned into an emotional post.  damn pregnancy hormones. 

im going to bed.

FINALLY OVER! [Feb. 21st, 2008|12:07 am]
manda

im finally done with everything for school.  i took and passed my state boards, and now im officially a registered nurse.  there were so many times i thought that i would never make it to where i am right now, so it feels really good to finally be able to call myself an RN. 

i feel like im starting a new chapter in my life.  chris and i have been talking about a wedding and kids, and everything just finally feels like its all gonna work out.    im so glad to have him in my life.


on another note, i would have never been able to accomplish anything without my mom and dad.  im forever in debt to both of them.  (in many ways.)  


so, thank you.
