My New Decade!

Hey everyone,

Tuesday the 13th was my 20th birthday. I didnt have time to take a paid day off from work, but it so happened that i had a really bad migraine headache that day. So i called in. :-) I had a pretty good day. i slept in till 11 or so and then lazed around for a lil bit. Then Kyle took me to dinner at Applebees. My friend Timara went with us too. Then we all went shopping later in the evening. It being a weekday, nothing was nearly as crowded as normal. It was a pretty nice layed back day!I got a lot of text messages and calls saying happy birthday. So it was nice. Me and Timmi at Applebees

I got to thinking that day tho. (you all are going to get some insight on my life) I got to thinking about the last ten years of my life. Its crazy to think how much i have done and how fast and slow it all went, if you know what i mean. I remember turning ten. It seems like a long time ago. We lived in California then. We had a big party in the churches fellowship hall! lol. Then when i turned 12, we moved here. I didnt want to leave all my friends in Cali, and i hated my parents for making us leave. Lets just say that the first year or so here wasnt so good for me and sarah. 5th - 6th grade is a bad time to move. When i was 14 we started at Columbus Christian school and started playing a bunch of sports year round and it seemed like the time flew by because we were going non-stop! Sarah and I played basketball, volleyball, softball(2teams), tennis and cheerleading. It was a busy schedule. We stayed there thru 9th grade and we decided that we wanted to go to publice school. It was the best decision. We already knew a bumch of people from before we went to CCS, so we werent strangers. I had a couple boyfriends and sarah had been dating this one guy for a LONG time. I dated this one guy, Justin O'Connell and we got close, so when he died in a car accident at the age of 17, everyone was devestated. But luckely i had someone to help me through it! Kyle was there for me through the whole thing. Justin and Kyle had known each other when they were little. So the past couple of years have gone by pretty quickly and here i am 20 years old with a son and graduated high school, ready for this new chapter in my Life. I hope it brings love and happiness and that it will go by slowly, because i have learned to cherish my time.
