A New Decade is Here

So I am officially 30 years old, and you know what? It feels great!  I honestly have the best group of friends a girl could ask for!  On the big day, we had big plans to go to a new piano bar in Lexington.  The girls had Bunko until 9, so the guys went early to reserve a table.  Somewhere during the course of the night, I got a stomach bug (I know, I know, on my birthday!!!  How much does that suck?) and we had to cancel at the last minute.  Everyone went home with the hopes we'd reschedule soon.  What is so great about that? you may ask.  Well, all I can say is that I guess a little bit of the old me had resurfaced and thought they'd just go out without me.  Autumn asked, "Did you really think we'd have your birthday celebration while you were home sick?"  It's a ridiculous thought, I know, but I think that maybe, just maybe, on my 30th birthday, God gave me the gift of letting me know just how great my friends are.

More shows gone!

And now Dirty Sexy Money, Pushing Daisies, and (my new favorite) Eli Stone!  Maybe the universe is telling me to stop watching so much TV!

Another One Bites the Dust...

Okay, so I am officially the Kiss of Death for TV shows... As soon as I like one, it usually gets cancelled.  Here is a list of shows I love that have been cut short in their prime...Lipstick JungleMy Own Worst EnemyBig ShotsOctober RoadJourneymanCrownedMiami InkMiss GuidedTeachersStudio 60Friday Night LightsThe Singing BeeThe ClassTravelerWhat About Brian?Commander in ChiefIn JusticeGood Morning MiamiReunionSo sad, so sad... (FYI, I am not so completely obsessed with these shows being cancelled that I keep this list in my head...I googled cancelled shows and picked the ones I loved...)

The List is Finished!!!!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped me with this... I don't have it so bad after all!

It's been FOREVER since I posted, but reading the blog of a mom from school made me want to start blogging again.... Plus, I have some exciting news:

So I am taking charge of my Singleness! I recently read a book I bought at a Christian bookstore called Table for One about enjoying being single and not putting your life on hold, so last week I went to dinner by myself! This may not be a huge deal to you, but it is to me. I even sat without my back to everyone (which was my initial instinct) and NO ONE looked like they felt sorry for me! I feel like I am living, not waiting for life to begin.

I also decided that with my 30th birthday around the corner, I would try to come up with a list of 30 reasons it's great to be single. I have 28 currently, and the funny thing is, I came up with four and the other 24 were given to me by my married friends! There are things to be thankful for that I never even thought to be thankful for! I'll post the list when it's completed!

A Whole New Blog, A Whole New Me

I had to start a whole new blog (on an aside, it's hard to find a name no one else is already using, and it really pisses me off when I finally think of the perfect title and it's taken, but there hasn't been a post since 2002, but I digress...)So I had a blog for a few months, just so I'd have a place to put my thoughts down. It turned into a really sad thing, and when I'd read over my posts, I couldn't help but feel sorry for myself. I hated myself, and for no good reason. I mean, I could stand to lose a few pounds, my hair has some grey, you know the drill. Anyway, somehow this made me less of a person, not deserving of love or happiness or anything good, yadda, yadda, yadda... A few weeks ago, it all came to a head. I was sitting at the top of my stairs on a Saturday morning looking at my phone in pieces (not broken, just the battery out) because I had thrown it down the stairs because no one had called me in about 24 hours. How insane is that? Then I …
