Two Wholes Equal ... Two?

Tomorrow I head out to San Antonio. Then on Tuesday I go to Austin to help Matt move here. I have to admit that I am SO nervous about being part of a couple. For those of you that have followed Matt and I's story from the beginning know that we have been involved in a long distance relationship for about 7 months. We haven't spent a whole lot of time together but I love him nonetheless.
All this talk of Matt coming here made me think. Why is it that people say their significant other is their other half? I don't get that. I mean I think I'm whole on my own so I'm not a half of anything. So the way I see it I'm part of a two. Because I'm a whole and so is Matt. We're two wholes.
Yeah, maybe I didn't make any sense. Well life is changing and I'm so excited.

I've got tons on my mind right now. Enjoy as I ramble.
  • Lifetime is the devil. Lifetime Movie Network...double devil. Then again, I did see some awesome movies today. Not just your typical girl in trouble movies.
  • Putting the finishing touches on a house is more stressful than moving in. I'm stressing over finding art pieces and the little things. And landscaping. Yuck! I don't know what to do.
  • My summer break is going way too fast. :(
  • I still need to take pictures and post them.
  • Cooking and washing dishes is not so bad. However, having a dishwasher is freaking awesome.
  • There is no end to how much HGTV and Food Network I can watch. Oh and watching it on HDTV is fantastic. Football season...here I come.
  • Yay! One week till the boyfriend moves here. Many changes coming.
  • Spurs in the offseason are looking GOOD. Read this article about them. Scroll down to where it says WINNERS. YAY!!!!
  • Sadly, this is the first summer in a long time that I haven't done some reading. It's the house's fault.
  • For the most part I love Facebook and MySpace. I've been able to reconnect with some long lost peeps.
  • Quote from my new principal who I saw at a staff development: Her: "How's the new house?" Me: "Oh it's wonderful! I've almost got it all together." Her: "Oh good so now you're swimming in debt. How wonderful!" I don't think she was being sarcastic. I think she was actually happy for me.
  • It takes me 40 minutes to drive to work, 30 to my mom's, and 25 to church. But...it only takes me 4 minutes to get to my sister's. We've had tons of fun all summer. And the nephews have managed to spend the night at least once a week. I love having a guest room!
  • I think...I think that's it.
Have a great Sunday everyone!

Happy Birthday Mikey!

My handsome and sweet nephew, Michael, turns 11 today. I'm so sad because he's growing up so fast. He'll be in middle school next year. I remember when he was born... But he is still a great boy.

Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Happy Birthday from your Nina

My godson, Matthew, turns 8 today. He is a character. He cracks me up but also makes me want to kill him. He fits right into my family. I think we'll keep him! Ha ha!

Happy Birthday Matthew! You're getting so big now.
I love you,
Your Nina Patty

I Can Almost See The Finish Line

My beautiful bed arrived on Sunday. That is almost one month after I ordered it. I have to say that I picked a great looking bed. I promise, pictures of the entire house are forthcoming. When I ordered all my furniture I was a bit worried about my spacial capabilities. I wondered if all my furniture would actually fit and fit comfortably.

So with the furniture delivered, built and placed I can almost see the finish line. I'm still working on organizing my craft room but I get the feeling that I'll always be working on my craft room. But, for the most part the hard part is done. I need to get the finishing touches that come as time goes on. I am extremely excited but also so tired.
