Toronto Thirteenth

Well currently I am sitting (as you can see in the top pic) in the Toronto airport waiting for my flight to Calgary. I am meeting up with the fam for Derryck's family's family reunion...thats a weird sentence huh?

We will be in Canada til the 5th and I'm looking forward to spending my birthday-tomorrow in Banff, which everyone says is absolutely gorgeous!
This airport is huge and my feet are killing me, and I can't wait to get to where I'm getting...
The second pic is a skyline of Toronto, wish I could see more than what I get from the airport window...

I'll write soon!

The Totally Tired Twelfth!

Whew! I am soo worn out. Working out, working all morning every day, class every afternoon, 2 exams this week, and work 7-7 on sat and sun...I will be relieved when this week is over!!! I have had a good time this week though, I went home with Jonathan for fathers day, and then came home Sun to 2 of my friends birthdays which was a blast.

In other news, I have found a new job, a better one! I will be a nanny for two great kids, making $10 an hour! Yay! I start there this sat, the 7-7 and I am looking forward to it. 

Jonathan has been asked to come back to Virginia to take the next step in accepting a youth pastor position at a church in Richmond, and they have asked me to come as well, and they are paying for our flights and everything :) I think its crazy and cool and scary and exciting all rolled into one...just need to keep praying and being open to possibilities...

Anyway, thats all for now!

Easier Eleventh

Well science has proven to be MUCH easier than I thought it was going to be. Class is supposed to be from 1-4:50 and the third day in, the latest we have gotten out is 3:30! The professor doesn't like having such long classes, so we don't stay late. There has been no homework, no quizzes and the lab is EASY! Thank God for such a break! 

On another note, I made a B+ in Spanish 211, which was the first 2 weeks of last month and a A- (!!!) in Spanish 212, the last 2 weeks of last month!!! I am soo pleased and grateful to have gotten the grades I did and I am soo happy! 

On one other note, I have lost 12 pounds since the beginning of last month! Weight Watchers and continual healthy eating and exercise have really paid off and I am happy with the results. 

Also, I am in a wedding on Saturday for a friend of mine that I have had since we were 7 and I am looking forward to seeing her and others that I haven't seen in forever.

So, this month, things are easier than I thought that they would be and I am relieved...the only downside is the waking up at 6 am, I HATE it! So please pray for continued strength for me to keep pushing through.

Tired Tenth...

All I want is sleep. Sleep, sleep and more sleep. After an entire month of spanish, that is 114 hours of class in 19 days, not to mention the 1-3 hours a night of studying and homework, I am now officially exhausted, both physically and mentally. I am on the verge of getting sick, I can feel it and that is just NOT acceptable! I started work at a Veterinary hospital last friday, the pay is great however I will have to get up at 6, leave by 7 to be at work at 7:30, work til 12, drive the 25 minutes back to Cleveland to sit in class from 1-5 every day this month. 

I am taking Earth & Space science, and PS I loathe science, especially 4 hours a day! 
So, I am tired and feeling icky and I would greatly appreciate ANY prayers you have, 
thanks and much love,
